It's not a dish GW, it's a horror. All the bits of innards you don't want to know about shoved into a sausage shaped bit of intestine. Triple yuk! Makes haggis look positively haute-cuisine.
Don't do tartare either but I do like my steak rare. Always enjoy seeing Americans ordering steak américain as that is another version of raw minced steak..........
DL - I know. I was being naughty.
Pdoc - I have long thought docs should spend a couple of nights as patients in hospital to see how the other half live. went in for neck surgery in 2012. My private room wasn't available so i spent the night in a room with 3 old biddies - one Portuguese and taken ill while visiting family in Brussels. Not a word of French and very frightened after all her visitors left. Another snored all night and the last had been there so long her clock was inside out and she was awake all night wanting attention. I made it very clear I was not going back there after surgery.
As it happens, I woke up in intensive care cos my neck swelled so I had breathing difficulties. Noisiest place ever with all the beeping and clicking and pinging and people running back and forth answering alarms plus the noise of ambulance sirens all day and night. They brought me a lovely rare steak for lunch but I couldn't eat it. Despite all the noise the care was excellent and the staff were all courteous and helpful and smiley. I went back the following year for my new feet. Great place and great system but, even so, there are some hospitals in Belgium which definitely need to be avoided as they are badly run and have bad outcomes. It's down to people as well as funding.
Cladding done and windows in!! Now to insulate and board the insides and get all the goodies in.
