Maxim of the Week

Myriam decided not to tell her husband that she’d fed the leftover headcheese
that he loved so much to the cat.
Has the cat got your tongue?


  1. hahaha, myriam is also known as johanna;)

  2. Oh perfidy, perfidy !!!

  3. Bonnie,
    That sounds like a rather complicit "teehee"!

  4. johanna,
    It's good to have one's priorities straight!

  5. Owen,
    My, what big words you have! Delicious.

  6. Now I'm stumped. What the heck is head cheese and should man or beast be eating it?

  7. I'm wondering too,what is headcheese?

  8. Stickup and Forest Dream,
    According to Wikipedia's definition:

    "Head cheese is not a cheese but a terrine or meat jelly made with flesh from the head of a calf or pig (sometimes a sheep or cow), and often set in aspic. Which parts of the head are used can vary, but the brain, eyes, and ears are usually removed. The tongue, and sometimes even the feet and heart, may be included."

    Whether or not man or beast should eat it is questionable. When I first met my partner, he enjoyed an occasional tub of head cheese and, as his English was sketchy,in searching for the right words, he referred to it as "pig mind." I'm not sure that such a difference in nomenclature makes it any more appealing, though; certainly not to me!

  9. Now I know,here it's called potted head.My father loved it,the rest of us thought it disgusting.....without tasting of course!

  10. I think she did him a big favor, in my opinion! Love it!
