Does Mr. Swiss have a guilty conscience because I cook daily for him and my son, go shopping and look after the household? Was this the reason why he is allowing me to sit at the computer whilst he is preparing the evening meal?
I decided to make a cervelat salad this evening. For those non-Swiss amongst you (and that is probably all except for me) a cervelat is the Swiss sausage. It can be eaten raw or fried, all you do is to remove the skin. It is the ideal sausage to take on a picnic. It was Mr. Swiss that taught me to make my first cervelat salad. Many Swiss suffer from withdrawal symptoms if they cannot have a cervelat now and again.
This evening, without me having said anything, he began to make a sauce, boil the eggs and peel them and skin the cervelat and I would add he did not utter one profanity whilst he was preparing the salad. This was enough compensation for the many meals I have cooked for him, this evening my meal has been prepared and all I have to do is eat it.
And this is the finished product.
