Happy ~~ a question about the bizarre Australian custom of putting beets on burgers: Are they at least pickled beets? Don't they have wonderful pickled cucumbers in Switzerland? Try to get him to eat an American-style burger, with mustard and pickles & perhaps a little mayonnaise. Finding good cheese in Switzerland to put on his burger shouldn't be a problem.
Uhm... to be quite honest, I am not sure but I think it is supposed to be fresh beetroot. I don't know because I really hate beetroot, pickled or not. Eugh !

Someting very simple tonight - a sort of sformato or crustless quiche with thin slices of sweet potato, egg, grated crotonese (hard ewe's milk cheese), and minced onion. It is very cold today in Montréal and I had a lot of work today, so I didn't go out and get the onions I'd normally have put in.
Oh dear, casimira, do wish I had fresh local greens now, but it is not to be.
Lagatta, welcome to our butter yellow ship! Your meal is sooo tempting. Alas, I have to finish swabbing the upper deck before nibbling a crumb. At least the Ocean breezes cool me as I swab and swab. 'They' promised there will be leftovers in the galley for me.
What a disconcerting name for what is by all accounts a vibrant city.
re: OP ~~ I made a big salad. I'd run out of everything and craved fresh. Since today was market day, I had lots of produce. I was slicing up a poblano pepper -- they've been like bell peppers for months -- & idly munched on a piece. Holy hahas it was hot!
Grazie. It is a bit less cold today - we anticipate a big melt on Saturday - so I'll be going out to get so-called "fresh" salad, though it is nothing like the truly fresh stuff we get during la belle saison at the Jean-Talon Market.
It is a pretty ship - looks like a big cheese with green streaks - would that be a Stilton?
Jazz, I've been reading your Paris stories (I have yours' and Kerouac's offline in a word file on travel) but haven't weighed in yet.
