Is that real pudding? ..... a black pudding - like in "desert" you eat after a meal?
Nope it's a blood sausage very common in the north of England and often served fried with a full English breakfast. I have found variants of it in other European countries too. It's called boudin noir in Belgium and is usually served with apple.

Does that include delicious black pudding?
See, I don't mind black pudding, at least it is solid and looks like a sausage. Blutwurst is just goo.

What a load of wimps! If we are going to slaughter the animal, then eat it blood and all! Every country has a way of processing the offal. I hold my hand up, I'm a mean eating machine.
I read that as man eating machine at first .

Now, why on earth would anyone stuff a sausage skin with blood, and then call it a pudding? Why not just drink the blood in liquid form?

(Reminds me of a Mr Bean video where he ordered Steak Tartare and it turned out to be a raw mince patty ..... soooo far from anything resembling a steak!).

Re: Tonight's dinner?

before we get too taken away... careful with those puddings people...


Bradley Davidson is alleged to have behaved in a threatening and abusive manner before hurling the blood sausage across a room.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Homemade hot sandwiches
a) yummy
b) for a fraction of the price you'd pay at takeaway
c) a gazillion times healthier

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Help, what do you cook when you have limited cooking facilities only? We're renovating the kitchen, have microwave and a small camping stove. washing dishes is a bit complicated as well.

So I guess I'm wondering - what do people who don't usually cook, eat?

Haha, remember when I first tried andouilette. "chitterling sausage" was the given translation, whatever that is. Disliked it so much that never tried it since.

so by warm sandwiches you mean the ones I would need one of those sandwich grill machines for? OK possible, not that expensive I guess.

What do you put in them?

Grilled sardines, taboule, and salad.

Tomorrow, green chile with veal, with a side of polenta.

Whatever you fancy - I wouldn't recommend lettuce if you plan on making it in a sandwich grill machine (for obvious reasons)

- Vegetable/fruit
- turkey/salami/ham/chicken/beef etc. etc.
- Egg/cheese
- Tofu?
and so forth
