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!)

Horseradish at its best

I already wrote a post about it in Hungarian and that was quite a success. Readers liked that and the Hungarian dealer found me after.

But anyway, the real success is the product itself. And I mean it.

First I saw a Facebook post and a photo about “the best horseradish of the world”. My friend posted it and nothing more about it – except that it’s sold in Metros. It took a couple of months for me to visit that shop, so first I tried to find by its name, or at least what I remembered about its name.

I went to the mustard and ketchup shelves, spent a couple of minutes there, without finding anything. Found something like ten different jars of horseradish, but none of them looked like the one I remembered. I thought the product’s name’d been Streier Kren but found nothing. Nothing like that at all.

And as I was with my daughter, Luca, then two and a half year old, well, the shopping was about to turn a nightmare, ’cause obviously she wasn’t that keen on the project. So, finally I found someone in the shop, who figured out that product is at the fresh vegetables.

And then I got it. Continue reading
