Watch out for the chef types, they say the darnedest things.
That you must explain to a poor non English speaking person. Google Translate doesn't say anything about the world darnedest and I'm not familiar with that world either. Swedish is a small language. Others than German or French, no films (maybe except films for really small children) are synchronized. They are always shown in original language with subtitles. That's the reason I know, and understand a lot of English words. (I can admit that I have big problems to put the words together in a proper manner
) But on that word , I never stumbled.
I just had a very good dinner!
Yesterday my husband was shopping. As he went, he asked me what to buy for dinner. I said; "Buy what you like to eat, I'll cook anything you bring". He brought a big piece of fillet of beef. I haven't asked what it costed, but it was really excellent, and big. We had it yesterday for dinner. Just a thick slice, medium rare, with a big salad. Very good! There was a piece left for today, not very much but enough for a small steak with rösti ( fried, grated potatoes) and a sauce with mushrooms, fresh from the forest, onions and cream.
I see that you also eat a lot of tomatoes @A Nonny Moose
. We do that as well. They are excellent this time of the year. We have plenty of them in our garden (small but delicious) but we also buy some at the market. They are almost as good as our own. Today we had a tomato salad for lunch; a mixture of our own and bought tomatoes with herbs from our garden and fresh sheep cheese from Greece (feta) and a vinaigrette sauce. Excellent seasonal food! It couldn't be better!
