A Scotch Egg .......lost

The expected storm has hit Trelawnyd hard in the night.
So hard that the graveyard cockerels haven't crowed this morning,
They are struggling to keep their feet in the Church yew
I have slept badly
It's 5.45 am and I'm going to work soon
I went to see my aunt Judy yesterday
She gets discharged next week
She remains slightly dysphasic after her stroke
But laughed a little in between the more serious conversations .
The lady in the next bed was from Trelawnyd
And Judy pointed the fact out before I sat down
I have a lot of time for this lady, my aunt's neighbour, as she once made one huge glorious scotch egg which she entered and won in the one and only scotch egg class in the cookery section.
It looked like a magnificent grenade of a scotch egg
It was so big that it had to be lifted with two hands!
The cookery judge said she had NEVER seen anything quite like it EVER
IT WAS HEAVEN IN BREADCRUMBS!!! It was a monster....it was fantastic!!!
And I never got over the fact that the lady involved took her scotch egg home with her!!!!
And I never got to taste it!!!!!

  1. Sounds like that monster egg was there to be looked at and admired rather than tasted, and hence destroyed.Though if so why did she take it home? Search me!

  2. The size of an egg dictates the size of the finished scotch egg. Was it a double yolker? Why did it win? Was it the only entry?

    5. My mother made lovely Scotch eggs but couldn't get the sausage meat to stick so it ended up loose.

  7. But you see, you are luckier than you think. We don't have scotch eggs here. I've never gotten to taste one. Actually, I've never even seen one. I saw recipes on the different cooking sites, but don't have any idea which is real scotch egg. See, aren't you lucky that you can get one when you please?

    She needed to return the egg to the ostrich she borrowed it from......before it notices! Battening down the hatches here in Yorkshire too. I have just moved house to a little old semi with a view towards Emley Moor to die for. However weather like this shows all the faults as you bring an empty and neglected house to life. So water is pouring through the front door (uninvited!!) Could be worse. Got not water and heating yesterday! Everyone stay safe and shut while this storms rates through.

  10. That sounds kind of nightmarish If you ask me. Aren’t you glad you didn’t ask me?

  11. I'm glad you survived the storm, yes, it was strange this morning our cockerels didn't crow either. You can usually hear them shouting to each other one from outside the henhouse (he sleeps in the trees) and one from inside. Last night they were both inside … they had obviously heard the forecast … and yet still quiet!!

    Hope your journey to and from work is safe. xx

  12. your storm sounds like what passed through here on friday. rain, high winds, even a snow squall!

  13. Sounds like you'll never get over the experience of not tasting the Scotch egg. How would you even find the egg in such a thing?

    It's good to hear your Aunt Judy is on the mend and I hope her power of speech returns soon.

    Alas about the missed opportunity to have a taste of that huge Scotch egg.

    I'm well south of Anne Marie in Philly, but we had 40-60 mph winds on Friday and was it ever noisy. It was too warm for us to get any snow.

    Hope your workday is calm and pleasant.

    Hugs!

  15. Sounds like she could have fed the WHOLE VILLAGE with that monster scotch egg!

  16. I suspect that giant Scotch egg was more of a huge sausage meatball with a regular egg lost in the middle. I think it tasted far better in your imagination than it did in real life. Then again, it may have been some incedibly delicious sausage, hand ground and seasoned perfectly with a generations-old spice blend.

  17. Be nice. Maybe she'll ecover and make you one or two.
    btw are scotch eggs something you could learn to make? You could stock the fridge for after your long ghastly night shifts---a reward.

  18. How do you know it was heaven in breadcrumbs when you hadn't tasted it? It might have been horrible. She might have remembered, too late, that she had forgotten the salt.

  19. I had to search for a recipe on how to make Scotch eggs ... good grief ... you should be able to create those things quite easily! You are on-line, you can watch how it's done on YouTube! If you want something bad enough, learn to do it yourself! There is a lot of satisfaction in doing that! ❤

  20. This is just like the fisherman story about the fish that got away - "It was huge! This long!" lol

    I wonder what the lady did with it - if she ate it or if she figured it had been sitting out so long it would cause food poisoning and - gasp - composted it!

  21. I have never heard of a scotch egg before reading your blog. Having found a recipe for this egg dish, I will now try to remedy that.

  22. She was probably so proud of the egg that she did not want to mar it just yet. Maybe she wanted to show it to someone. It would not bother me if she took the whole egg home.
