FOWC with Fandango: Compensate


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.

    • To be quite honest, I eat the cerverlat, but it is not one of my favourites. The Swiss seem to have it in their blood. I prefer the cervelat fried, but the salad does not really do it for me. However, when someone makes your evening meal and you do not have to do anything, then it is always a good meal. You do not look a gift horse in the mouth. My No. 2 son even took cervelat to Belgium when he was working there, after spending a holiday with us. They were always in his luggage. I am not anything % Swiss. I just got the passport when I married Mr. Swiss and that was 51 years ago.

      • My Swiss friend here was hoping one of his friends over there could send him some, but they decided it would spoil before it got here — and it might not go through customs anyway.


  1. Pat, I am a Swiss too…. and I love Cervelats. Hero Husband too is Swiss and he doesn’t….. but I bought few just this week and there WILL BE a Cervelats involving meal. Was thinking of a Wurstsalat cheese, lots of onions, gherkins and a ‘sharp’ dressing. I’ll present it nicely on a bed of rucola (rocket leaves) which gives some additional zing…
