That's what I thought but didn't go out and check. You gotta admit, most DCers wouldn't know that.

They are definitely House Elves, I got them from Diagon Alley, across from Gringott's. Met them in a pub there and they offered their services.

Yeah, that's true. I had to check because Swedish makes its plurals slightly differently than Danish does. I was also checking on the plural of Smörgåsbord, 'cause BT asked.

okay, coffeemates, work with me here for a minute? a few easy steps, and you will be rewarded with this special recipe for a crumpets and chorizo-maple syrup breakfast.:)

all you need to do is go to the search window at tasting table, enter 'crumpets'. then, click onto 'crumpets, not just for tea'. then, scroll down the page to find these two mouth-watering recipes. let's do it, who's with me? :)

I don't want maple syrup with anything that has meat.

aww really, taxy? why not? well, what about the bacon marmalade, then? i just love the interplay of the maply sweetness with the salty-spicy savoriness of the browned sausage. (or smoky bacon mixing it up with the sweet marmalade). yum...

you could still try your hand with the crumpets....:)

i know, i KNOW! the voice was crazy good right out of the gate this season! love the affectionate bickering between shakira and adam, the good-natured competitiveness of the panel members. got me a couple of favorites already. i like michelle, doing 'i kissed a girl' and the older chick, tonight, with the raspy voice? man, the talent carson daly is bringing in to this show, ZOMG!

I don't really have time to be making crumpets now. I'm up to my eyeballs in tax returns and it's going slow on account of visual migraines and headaches.

No bacon marmalade, nope. No glaze on my ham. I tried some chocolate chip cookies with bacon at a party. Nope, in my opinion it was a waste of bacon and a waste of otherwise good cookies.
