Thank you! You make me blush! And I feel so stupid when I'm puzzled with a typo or new idiom! I'm a teacher, so I got used to reading quite slowly and attentively, and yes, I correct my own spelling. Even so I sometimes meet people who say:"You can't be a teacher!? Why don't you know this?"

I've had an interesting adventure. I wondered how a recipe in Dutch would look: 

200 gr. witte bonen, 250 gr, snijbonen, 2 middelgrote uien, 2 teentjes knoflook, 3 eetl. zonnebloemolie, 100 mager rookspek (plak) 2 dl. groente- of kippebouillon (tablet) 1 dl. witte wijn, 1 eetl. gehakt bonenkruid, 2 theel. gehakte rozemarijn.

I think I saw white bone, onion, bouillon, white wine, bone crud, and rosemary. I see there are a lot of "oo" in Dutch as there are in Belgian.

Oh!  I never had an Italian Beef sammidge in all the times I was in Chicago.  Damn!  Looks ongerful!

I do like Italian sweet sausage sandwiches with peppers and sauce, tho.  I can find them here, but I have to check out the type of sausage the place uses....too many now think that garlic is de rigeur.  No way!

Chris, I love it when you correct spelling or grammar!. I work really hard to detect all my errors before I publish. You have set a high bar for me to meet.  I hope you continue to do me the honor of catching my miss-spelled words and incorrect English grammar.

I haven't made waffles or pancakes in several years. I love them both. I especially like them with lightly chopped nuts, yogurt, and fruit syrup.

Carl, loved the story of the Benedictine nuns raising cattle in Colorado. The idea of chewing on a cud of scripture sounds as inviting as chewing on a plug of tobacco. One needs a spittoon to get rid of the spittle. 

Let me think, How would an atheist group raise cattle and have a llama to keep away the Cougars? We could compost the bunk as we compost the manure.

Carl, I'm originally from Kankakee, and used to skip high school to go to Chicago. We would 'score' and Italian Beef, and as you say, an original Chicago creation. Damn, they are good!!! I'm envious.

I had an important errand to do today that would normally require two buses and one train ride there and the same to get back home.  Since it's so cold here, my best friend drove me in his car.  So, afterwards I treated him to lunch.  I had a classic Italian beef sandwich with sweet bell peppers.  An original Chicago creation.  Yum!!

Chris, I really did find it funny.
Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 10, 2015 at 5:13pm

As a native English speaker, I find it embarrassing that Chris seems to always be the first person to spot our spelling errors.  I didn't notice "barely" until she pointed it out.  Good job, Chris!
