Gameweek 31 v Aston Villa & Happy Easter!

After the international couple of days, here we go again. Tricky game v Aston Villa on the menu, but kind of an easier one compared to recent ones… Or at least seems like, after the recent results and by the position in the PL table.

But. United seemed to struggle again so-called easier opponents right after showing some great performances against bigger threats – so on the other it is gonna be a real test for the new confidence of the United players and fans.

And spring has just arrived, although if I look out through the window its more like winter – and the bloody conditions are right next to the ones in November. It’s only 4 degrees outside, some light snow expected during the Easter weekend, so, it’s gonna be hard – though if it’s not snowing or raining I will cook the ham and the trotters outside, in the garden, on campfire, whatever it takes. (Meaning that it will take some beers and spirits to keep myself warm!)

And what is your custom for Easter gastronomically?

We eat ham and grated horseradish with eggs and bread – and of course the good old stuffed cabbage, for example. The latter one by my mother, of course.

This time first I will cook the ham on fire, then let it rest for the night in the fridge, only to put it into the oven for a little while in the morning.

I bought the best horseradish I’ve ever met (read my post about it here) and two tubes of wasabi to make sure there’s some variety offered.

So, the plan is to cook a lot, watch United beat Villa, drink some bottles of beer (hopefully a lot), and enjoy my time.

I still owe you with the post about my diet, but I promise it’s on the way, after coming back from my parents, I’ll do that.

Anyway, Happy Easter to you all, enjoy your holiday! But don’t forget to post your predictions before starting to prepare the festive menu!
