@tunic

i learned it from a belgian friend who used to live here. i was curious about the author, so when you get to the meats part, please share tips. i know it as basically beef, onions, beer. but maybe there's a magic trick.

i see the recipe you linked uses juniper! that's new to me. tasty...

for the meat cuts that work here i prefer what's called chuck roast. it' basically the shoulder. and it's flavorful and cheap and great for slow cooking.

so yeah it's a winter thing, a bit out of season now, but it's the only flemish dish i know, hahaha, so it immediately came to mind when i saw your book.

if you spot any other interesting dishes, kindly recommend them--even in name only, i'm always willing to research good foods.

Bloody still creeping through Brothers Karamazov but about 80% done now.
Been reading a bit less, been distracted by work, potential new work, dating again, etc.

Rob, my man, not to beat on a years-old horse but since we didnít chat for what felt like at least a year, did you ever read the sequel series to Book of the New Sun? Specifically Book of the Long Sun, which is very close to being just as good? (Book of the Short Sun is pretty badass but itís not quite at the same level.)

I found a first edition Book of the Long Sun at the half price bookstore, but have yet to read it.

Will do though....

I'm taking things a bit slower this time around to try and absorb more information that i probably missed last time.


For example the Ringwraiths are the kings of men who originally received those rings. That detail always escaped me somehow. Not this time

I read The Hobbit at least 6 times.

I read Book 1 of Lord of the Rings at least 5 times

I got bored with Book 2 so much I never finished it, and I never read the Return of the King. the movie was all new stuff to me!

Finished Pascal Garnier's "The Panda Theory." awesome French novel. I tweeted out my review and Gallic Press, publishers of the English translation, re-tweeted it and quoted my review in a "blurb!"
Super cool.

Still Brothers Karamazov! Lmao. I’ve been distracted by a new romance and work stuff, but I’m 9/10 of the way through and it truly is a phenomenal piece of work, sweet Jesus.

I just started reading this a few days ago. Let's see how far I can go on it.
I always find it a bit annoying when there's a dictionary at the end of the book with a description of the common terms, and then to find out the word I'm looking for isn't in it Is it my crappy English knowledge or did they forget to add it?

Only a gazillion pages to go and then 10 more books
Never saw the movie, the first one, or it was so long ago that I don't remember. Didn't see the new one either

so how did you like it? this book blew my mind when i first read it, i must have been 18 or so. i go back to it every so often, and while i now can see through its construction, it still manages to keep me engaged. kinda hate the new cover lol. but yeah so much fun.
