The food corner

“…That the light of magic suggestiveness may be brought to play for an evanescent instant over the commonplace surface of words: of the old, old words, worn thin, defaced by ages of careless usage…”

Dear reader!

We’ve figured you out. You’re middle class, aren’t you? Come, come - admit it! Don’t be ashamed, it’s not your fault. You didn’t invent the rules, you just have to play by them. You’re a good person, really. Don’t worry about it. In fact, don’t give it a single thought. You see, we want to please you. We want to cater to you. Why? No particular reason. The question is - how?

Well, it is a time-tested truth that the middle classes care only about three things in the whole world: Food, home improvement, and maintaining their social station. Drinking? Yes, if it goes well with the food. Art? Yes, if it matches the sofa. Sex? Yes, if it helps maintain their social station.

Consider this the first spike of a three-pronged assault. Today, we at SHÄDY ÄCRES give you… a recipe!

Cheese on a bed of bread
1 person

1 loaf of bread
10 g of butter
2-3 slices of cheese
1 slice of cucumber

Slice the bread evenly on a chopping board, using a sharp knife. Any kind of bread will do, but I prefer whole meal, approximately 1½ cm thick. Spread the butter on one side of the bread only, using a knife. Slice the cheese. Put the slices on the buttered side of the bread. Slice the cucumber thinly. 2-3mm will do. Putting the rest of the cucumber aside, place the slice on the chopping board. Make a cut from the center to the skin. Holding the slice vertically, with the cut pointing downwards, twist each side of the cut slightly away from the other, creating an “S” shape. Put the slice of cucumber on top of the cheese. Serve with a glass of milk.

That’s it for this time. Remember, feel free to experiment. It’s all about having fun in the kitchen.

yes, it's a very well-groomed Shetland pony. If you're tall enough to mount it, you're tall enough to run for office.
