Szakadok!

dailymagyar_szakadok
You might have seen this “Szakadok!” image on the Internet and wondered what does it mean. Well, if somebody reacts to a comment or post with this image, it means, that they think it’s very funny, or it is anything but funny (you know, irony). Btw it also means, that the rain itself is saying, that it’s pouring heavily. 😀

kocsonya

dailymagyar_2016_02_25
kocsonya [ˈkotʃoɲɑ] – aspic
 
As a kid I used to call it “frozen soup”, for it kind of tastes and looks like it. 😀
 
The more paprika powder you put there, the more red it looks, just like our homemade kocsonya on these photos. My family rather prepares it with pigskin instead of pigmeat (pork), but all the other ingredients like onion, garlic, parsley, carrot, celery or kohlrabi, and black pepper are a must have! 🙂
