Menolishables; for snackoholics

Oh my word what an incredibly busy day we had with the Blogville Rodeo... I hope you all enjoyed it and if you missed seeing any, you can check back three posts to catch up on it all!  Now... one needs to recuperate and some good tucker might help... I would substitute soya mince for the meat...but that's just me..

Say what?

I said 'Puddocks'...
  1. "A puddock sat by the lochan's brim, An' he thocht there was never a puddock like him. He sat on his hurdies, he waggled his legs, An' cockit his heid as he glowered throu' the seggs."
In auld Scots, the language of the Borders and much of the East side of Scotland, puddocks means "frogs".

The verse thus translates as "a frog sat at the edge of the pond, and thought himself finer than other frogs. He sat on his haunches, waggled his legs and cocked his head as he stared through the reeds."

For reasons known only to the originator, the following recipe is called Puddocks. [This is one of the meat-based recipes, so I have never tried it.... if any of you do, do please leave feedback!]


  1. Thank you for the translation! And for a minute we forgot where we were and thought you cooked up some froggies! Then we went DUH! It looks quite delicious!
