What is “hemendex”?

Sorry for that omission, reader Joan. That would be Czech-American “ham and eggs”…usually fried in a pan with lots of herbs. When done well it’s poetry.

Also please forgive the scant posting all of a sudden. I have a heck of a baking schedule this year. But I’ll make those dumplings shortly!

    The “hemendex” reminded me of a silly bit my grandpa and my dad used to do. Thanks for the fun memory prod!
    (Pronounce each letter)
    Grandpa: F U N E M?
    Dad: S! V F M.
    Grandpa: F U N E X?
    Dad: S! V F X 2.
    Grandpa: O K! L F M N X!

    Have a wonderful day!

    Heh. My father (from Poland) spoke that language, too. But he was a kosher butcher, so he never had the M, although he did on occasion have the X!
