    A Munro is a mountain in Scotland of 3000ft or more. Named after some famous guy. Ben Nevis is the highest Munro in the UK.

    Had an awesome burger at the pub tonight of steak, stornaway black pudding and Scottish cheddar. Yum. Seems to be a trend of me and burgers recently I can feel my cholesterol rising......

    It's still a mountain. They are called Munros after Sir Hugh Munro who was the first person to make a list of all the hills in Scotland. It's still a mountain though.
    The burger was awesome!

    Hmmm, Acid you have got me thinking about burgers again. I may have to scuttle into town and buy some ingredients and make some later. I'll let you know how it goes.

    I've been on a total fast food binge the past few days so I'm off climbing tonight to burn off the rubbish.

    Had a hoggie wrap which is basically a tortilla with donner meat, chips, cheese and chilli sauce. It's so tasty and full of rubbish.

    I feel so disgusting but very happy.

    had a sandwich of sorts for dinner..

    sequence is:
    breadslice, hamburger patty, tomatoslice, cheese, bread, butter,hamburger, tomatoslice, soft fried egg sunnyside up, bread, hamburger, tomato + tomato, cheese and some more cheese so there is enough. into oven till the cheese is melted in between layers. and then out and devour. not an hamburger actually, but kinda good.. had two of them.. and i now feel very stuffed.

    new thing i learned today: i always thought falafel beeing food i might like, but i learned that it is actually non-meat food! hahah. made out of beans. all pictures i have seen it looked like meatballs or something so i always thought it as meat food.. not vegetarian dish. hmm.. maybe one day i will still try it anyways.. because i have seen it mentioned so often in tv series.. hahah.

    I don't understand why my Wife doesn't love Lidls (or any other) Mango Chutney on everything ... It's so nice to eat.

    She doesn't understand why I have to have a carton of the hot curry sauce with "fish & chips" from the chip shop ... A chip sandwich with curry sauce on it is amazing ... You have to lick your fingers afterwards where the curry sauce has dribbled through the bread ... The curry sauce does tend to soften the batter on the fish , but that can't be helped ... Now that's a very satisfying meal when washed down with a pint of Guinness ... I feel hungry now.

    Yes , my Wife is a strange woman !

    It really depends mountains in Scotland are often called munros but I wouldn't call Everest a Munro that's a proper mountain.

    Does that help?

    Scotland mountain is a Munro

    Everywhere else it's still a mountain.

    ..and I'm sure they're still mountains in scotland too but what I was wondering was, what percentage of the people would you say use the word munro instead of mountains? Ie, which is the more prevalent word?

    This is a table of all the 283 "Munro's".

    Originally listed by Sir Hugh T. Munro in 1891

    http://www.munrocentral.co.uk/fullList.php

    All of them are "hills" over 3000 feet ... Some people try to walk / climb as many of the "Munros" as they can in a given time ... Some people climb them all and tick them off the list ... I don't know what they do then , when they've done all the Munros ... Probably they have a "haggis pasty" and a few "wee drams" whilst perusing the latest ordnance survey map just in case old Munro missed one off his list ... They probably plan "cairn building" trips to bring more hills into the "over 3000 feet" limit ... The purists would then knock the cairns down, to keep the list as Munro originally intended it.

    If you are on a plateau in Scotland at 2950 feet and there is a 51 feet high bump on the top of it , that counts as a Munro even though it is only 51 feet high.

    I don't know who William Wallace is, but I know that Mango Chutney on lasagna sounds odd. I mean, I'd try it, it can't be inedible, but I am starting to think that maybe the Mango is the only flavor march can taste anymore and that is why everything must taste like that. I've read that your taste buds lose efficacy as you get older, so maybe that is what is happening. Mangos do have a pretty distinct flavor (not my favorite fruit), so perhaps other more ordinary flavors just don't work on march's tongue anymore. So it's mango or nothing?

    He didn't even come second. If it wasnt for him and others of course Scotland would be part of England! He died but he won Scottish independence.

    I'm pretty sure "hills" are still mountains. Snowdon is a mountain as is Ben Nevis.
    No such thing as a haggis pasty unfortunately. The wee drams are a requirement and actually bond by law.
    Once you do all the munros you can get put on a list of people who have done all the munros. It's quite a middle aged pursuit to complete all the munros. So yeah....

    March! I had mango chutney tonight!

    I was by a friend's house for supper tonight and they took a crack at some Indian foods. As a condiment they had this shredded mango chutney. As it was Indian, of course it was both sweet and spicy. I don't know how similar it is to Lidl's, but I must say it was very good with the various Indian dishes. I'd just catch some on the fork with the curried chicken 'n rice or whatever and it was excellent. Also very good on the nam (spelling?) bread. I am already hankering for more Indian food now. I know this Chinese lady who grew up in Malaysia who makes this freakin' amazing curry chicken. It's super spicy but it hurts so good you can't stop eating it. I think she owes me a tub of chicken for the homebrew I gave them.

    From this article, it seems it's naan bro.

    Anyway, I had this friend in Sweden (Indian) and he was a great cook. He used to cook (my favorite) this thing called butter chicken. It was amazing. He cooked and stirred the chicken so long that everything fell apart in the pot and you could eat it with a spoon if you wanted. Amazing stuff.

    Found this online and although I don't know if it's the same stuff, I thought I'd post it here.
    Damn I miss this dish but as you guys know, there are thousands of variations on dishes so god knows who cooks it like him

    Sorry about the big writing.

    Although the sandwich has nothing to do with sand, it still has a vague connection with island life, because the Hawai'ian Islands were once called "The Sandwich Islands." They were named for the very same person for whom the sandwich that we eat was named ... The Fourth Earl of Sandwich, (John Montagu 1718 to 1792) , was the patron of Captain James Cook (the explorer who discovered the Hawai'ian Islands) and, because he was also the First Lord of the Admiralty during the American revolutionary war, he has sometimes been blamed by the British for the loss of the American Colonies. There is a story that he was an enthusiastic gambler and when he didn't wish to leave the gaming table -- or possibly just his desk -- to go to dinner he would ask for someone to bring him some meat between a couple of slices of bread. Later, when others began asking for the same thing, they would say something like, "I'll have what Sandwich is having..." Obviously it caught on, and people just started calling for "a Sandwich" when they wanted meat between two slices of bread. The word sandwich is therefore an eponym -- a word or phrase whose origin is a person or historical figure.

    William Wallace didn't eat sandwiches as he lived a long time before the Sandwich was invented.

    One of the most common questions is how factual Mel Gibson's portrayal of William Wallace was in the 1995 film Braveheart ... The short answer is that it hasn't an iota of fact in it.

    It's a good film, just don't take it as fact. For example, Isabella cannot have been carrying Wallace's child (and presumably Edward III) as she was in France at the time and did not arrive in England until two years after Wallace's death. She could also therefore not have warned him at York (which Wallace didn't attack anyway) ... The film makers only correct fact was that William Wallace was a Man !

    Hope you enjoy the fictional film.

    Fired up the Rayburn tonight for the first time this winter, thought you might like to see it.



    Just chorizo and rice for supper, had lunch at mum & dads. There was a price, had to show them how their new iPad works.

    Yes, I believe it is naan. Which is actually a transliteration anyways, because I can't type Devongari or Syrian script or any of those with my keyboard even if I wanted to. (My buddy and I are going to try to learn Hindi. Yikes, it's whole different characters.)

    For the story on the sig-line, you have to read this thread.
