Wednesday February 8th
I made a delicious meal today: chicory, onion, egg, goat cheese, apple, walnuts and fresh dill, baked in the oven in a tray with puff pastry.
And my achilles is doing good.
Witloof power!@Laura Rainbow Dragon @lofivelcro
I indeed mean Belgian endive, when searching for the translation on google it said it was called chicory.
The ones I used were pretty big, like 2 fists. I didn't weigh them, so I'm not sure how much I used, I suggest following he recipe saying 500g.

like "schlechter"?In the east people use the German word for 'worse'
aww man, the confusion over this plant!! In German, we call it "Chicorée", which looks French, right? Nu-uh, there's it's called "endive". But wait! We also have an Endivie! Elsewhere called a "Frisée" lettuce, though. Throw in some (British) English and the confusion is complete...I indeed mean Belgian endive, when searching for the translation on google it said it was called chicory.
I actually lived in Springhead, Yorkshire. But I was born in Oldham, and my parents were both born in Ashton. My maternal grandfather worked his whole career in a Lancashire cotton mill.@Laura Rainbow Dragon wah Lancashire! My dad's family were from there (and also West Midlands / Birmingham). I had a couple of stints in Australia, but have lost that accent completely. I mostly sound British English, but adapted for when I know I'm speaking with North American people (like switching "apartment" for "flat" etc.).
ohhhhhh yeah that makes sense! I kind of think I may have learned 'slim' once, but I couldn't recall it, and 'schlechter' seemed plausible somehow.@SkorpionUK I mean the German word 'schlimm', which according to google translate actually means 'terrible' in English so my English translation got mixed up (was too lazy to use google translate). But Dutch people in the east pronounce schlimm as 'slim' which is Dutch for smart.
I really love language
