I've slept in a closet, and under a half pipe, also a canoe.

I slept trough the support act of a metal concert

I think it was a Black Sabbath show, but I am not sure, it was somewhere in the 90s

Recipe for „Grüne Soße“ the Hessian National Dish (well, one of them anyway)

Green Sauce is a cold sauce from various dairy products and Eggs with 7 herbs (so basically it is a white sauce with green sprinkles)
You serf it with cooked potatoes. In Frankfurt (where the dish is originated) they like to serf boiled beef or Schnitzel but I prefer it the way it is served in my region: only with potatoes, which makes it vegetarian, I guess.

How to make it:
Step 1 basic sauce
- 1,5 cups of Quark/curd cheese
- 1 Cup of Schmand/Smetana (if not available use sour cream)
I use the Quark low fat and the Schmand full fat
- 0,5 cups yoghurt (pure, no fruit or sugar added)
- 1 Teaspoon of Mustard
- 1 Tablespoon of neutral Oil (I use Rapeseed or Sunflower)
- 2 Tablespoons of wine vinegar
- Pepper and Salt (over salt at this stage, the eggs will neutralize the salt taste later)
Mix everything with a whisk and add Milk until it has a viscosity halfway between pure yoghurt and milk

Step 2 the Herbs:
Traditionally 7 herbs are used:
parsley, chives (lots of), chervil, borage (a bit) ,sorrel (a bit), garden cress, and salad burnet
If you stray from that, it is no longer an Original Frankfurter Grüne Soße, but I am not from Frankfurt and in my home Valley we don’t take that to serious, some of the 7 herbs are not available in the garden at Easter time anyway. Chives and Parsley are the important basics. Chervil adds a lot of flavor.
I like to add Bears Garlic while it is growing in the garden.
Some people add Dill, Shallots or small amounts of lemon balm, mint or thyme
I would not recommend Lovage, Basil or Rosemary because thy overshadow all other herbs to much
> Cut the herbs to tiny pieces and add them to the sauce

Step 3 The Eggs:
- 5-6 hardboiled eggs cut into smallish pieces and stir them carefully into the sauce

Step 4 Eating:
- Put potatoes on your plate, mash them with a fork, put sauce over them

Step 5 Profit:
You may like to have a Jägermeister afterwards to digest it

My home city is a lot closer to Frankfurt (just up the Main, in fact) than it is to München, by the way.

Hey aeglos, you can tell Sabine I saw a real opossum today! I was driving home from choir practice, and there was one on my street, caught clearly by the headlights, about the size of a cat. Not one of the fake ones you guys saw in Chinatown :)

wohoo, possum, cool

I can't belive FHDM did not comment on this

Hi everyone,

Umberto Eco passed away :-(

I read that earlier. Very sad. I loved In the Neme of the Rose and Focault's Pendulum. I have an unread copy of Baudilino somewhere. I'm going to have to find it.

Rose and Pendulum are his best by far, some of his last books I could not get trough. Baudolino was a great for me because it features the founder of my hometown: Emporer Friedrich the I. from House Hohenstaufen nicknamed "Barbarossa"

I have heard "The Name of the Rose" is not very popular in America, here in Germany it is considered one of the best movies of all time

I wasn't very popular here, no, but there are some in America who agree with your opinion. I absolutely loved it.
I loved the book and the movie. FP was a disappointment for me. I really enjoy his essays and shorter writings. I have his two big medieval books and his history of aesthetics and they're interesting. I have some other of his novels, but haven't tackled them yet.

his newspaper colums are published as small books here in Germany, some are quit hilarious, like the one with the salmon in the hotel refrigiator

I made Lentil soup, the hard way, with watering lentils for hours. But the finished product was not very good, the soup was watery, did not thicken, tasted blant.
While we ate I lament my culinary shortcommings and pondered what may have went wrong,
than my boy, with all the diplomacy skills of a two year old, said:
"Marlon likes it,daddy. tastes good!"

I love my Boy

My wife is keeping her grandmother's recipes alive.
The biggest problem is translation. Not Italian to English. Translating AMOUNTS from 'Grandma' to 'actual measurements'. ;)

yeah, I know the problem, Grandmas usually cook by experience not by messuring, which makes it freaking hard to recook. I think Grandmas worldwide do this on purpuse

OK. Of course the post eaten was a long one, so here goes:

I was thinking of a good main villain for my Spelljammer type game. I came up with a lich named the Maggot Lord. He dwells in an ancient giant wasp hive that circles the Void, near the strands of the Muck region. I'm debating wether he would command live giant wasps or reanimated ones.

I'm also trying to recall the name of the alien race that Marvel had in some comics that implanted larvae in people ( The Breed maybe?). I think they would make an interesting evil race that could be in collusion with the Maggot Lord.

With name like that maybe he could be worm that walks instead of lich?

Lich is a town here in hessia, they have beer

hi everyone,

got a slight cold, boy got a bigger cold, wife got a monster-cold :-(

on a bright side: my roof is finally finished. new insulation, new shingles, the good ones from enameled clay not the s@**ty ones from concrete and new windows.
and a roof figurine in form of a griffon, that sadly looks more like a dragon with a beak

now only a new floor, wooden celing, doors and cables are needed, and then paiing the loan for the next twn years :-/ but jeay, new roof

I am experiencing world of agony at the moment. Had a bunch of dental work done. Fillings mostly, but what really hurts is the areas around my mouth where they propped my mouth open. Ugh. So much pain. And they weren't able to finish all of it because they had extra work to do on some of my teeth that cracked. Which can apparently happen if you grind your teeth in your sleep. Upshot is I need a better bite guard. And another dentist visit. :(

urgh, dentist work sucks

I hope the pain goes away quickly, Lynora

we don't go cutting ties off of people!

well, Germans do.

at the start of the peak of Fasching (also called Karneval or Fastnacht) in February there is a Thursday called Weiberfasching (wench-carnival) which is the start of the Tollen Tage - the last last weekend of Fasching before Ash wedensday and fasting time.

On that day hordes of badly costumed women storm the local townhall, steal the City Key from the Major and cut the ties of every man they encounter wearing one, traditionally in most companies the secretaries cut the ties from the bosses (but this changes with changing gender roles, female bosses and male secretaries)

oh, and everyone gets drunk of course

oh and usually they kiss everyone they cut the tie from and beat up anyone refusing to get his tie cut - and because they are costumed the tie-cut-refuser can't press charges due to diffucult identification :-)
not sure if this is the one day I should visit Germany or the day i should avoid it.

well both,

from that thursday it is a weekend and then Rose Monday and Faschings Tuesday with terrible music and terrible costumes and everyone drunk
it is kind of embarrassing and awesome at the same time

and you need to scream "Hellau" ( or in Cologne "Alaf") a lot, like every few minutes as a greeting,
and there are parades everywhere and they throw candy that the costumed children collect

Sort of. It was to honour the victims of the nazi school attack we had here in town the previous Thursday. I'm thinking about making a thread where I've translated the local paper's coverage of it into English.
