Holiday Journal Part Six

Mom, Dad I'm home, there was no water on the plane so had to drink your duty free I got yea, there's a bit left in the bottle. But my head, don't know if its the booze or the jet lag. We all had a great time and thanks for looking after me, there was some hairy moments, but a weekend to remember, and I'm back on Friday for the Wedding of the year.
 Don't forget you can pop in anytime and see whats happening



Right on to me Holiday Journal, good job I only have to press publish post, me pads won't take the pressure of the key pad. OK here we go. presssssssssssssssss



Well this is the last of the Holiday Journals, hope you have enjoyed reading and looking at them as mush as me, cus I was there. in this one I thought I'd finish with some Welsh language, a trip to a windmill and a Recipe for my liver Cake.

The Welsh if you didn't know have there own language and to say its tongue twisting is an under statement,  they also have to have bigger signs because  most of the signs have Welsh and English.  
Just like this one!!!  taken at the village train station.


In English it means this "The Church of Mary in the Hollow of the White Hazel Near the Fierce Whirlpool and the Church of Tysilio by the Red Cave."!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Mom and Dad just say Llanfairgogogoch, and this sign again in Welsh and English 



Me and dad went over the other side of the station to get me photo taken by mom, she'd have never got the hole sign in if she had come with us, anyways after I did me poseing, look what I saw though the fence. One of Lola relations a Shar Pei, silly me didn't get her name but she was very friendly. 


  

Back in the tin can to see a working Windmill, Melin Llynnon Mill
But when we got there, "no surprise".


I had to wait in the car, while they went in to get my my wholemeal flour for my liver cake,  but dad said I could stand on the wall to have my photo taken with the windmill.

 

Well the holidays over and I'm back home, so lets do some baking



First get all your ingredients together.


You will need

 12 ozs of Liver
8ozs Wholemeal Flour, if you can find it the S.R. one
2 Eggs

First liquidise or finely chop the liver


Next have a bowel ready, and put the liver with the flour and eggs, mix up

 

I have to say at this point the quality we are doing is double the amount, mom hates the liquidizing bit, to much like a blood bath she says!, I think it smells delicious.

Next, line a low sided tin with greaseproof paper and spread in the mixture.



For health and safety get a peeps to put it in the oven at 200c or gas mark 6 for 20 minutes.


Just checking the quality, should be lighty brown and soft to the touch.


When cool cut into cubes,



Mom freezes it, and takes out a bit at a time.
Hopefully you'll get to try some when its still warm



Thanks for sticking with me on my Holiday Journal, I can't believe you are interested in what I'm up to.
But stick around, there plenty to see from my neck of the woods.  


Till next time See Yea George xxx

PS listen up, next Saturday steps is me on some steps in Chicago after the lads night out, thanks to Wyatt for taking the photo : ) cheers bud I owe you one.  Heck I'm picking up an America twang !!

Hey, do you think that Shar Pei you saw could have been my long lost 5th cousin, 6 times removed, Ceinwen?

lotsa licks, Lola

I love all your travel photos, but that one of you by the windmill is really, really good! I am hoping I can get Mom to get us some liver so we can try that. She's not fond of liver at all, though. This will take some convincing!

Too bad the 'no dogs' sign was translated into English, you could have pretended you didn't understand it.

George, you are such a wonderful model! You pose so nicely for all your photos!

Were you really in Chicago, or was it just your peeps?

My Mind's Eye said...

OH MY CATS George that is one looooooooooooog string of words. On this side of the pond if we say that we would say 'my tongue got wrapped around my eye teeth and I couldn't see what I was saying"!!!

You fellas had a great time in Chicago. My body required a serious grooming after the weekend...once that is done I plan to sleep.

You liver dish looks very very tasty. I, Madi,
am 100% a meat eater. Very nice of your mom and dad to let you use their blender and oven to make it.
