Frango tipo leitão… Maio 31, 2005

Portugal na linha da frente das transmutações genéticas?

Apesar da falta de originalidade não resistimos a divulgar esta fotografia.

O rasto do “frango tipo leitão”:

Descobrimo-la no Arouca : Um blog sobre Arouca, as suas terras e as suas gentes… a ilustrar ” razoavelmente o que é um transgénico, da autoria da Drª Margarida Silva…”. É a referencia mais antiga que conseguimos obter. Um comentador diz que pode ser “frango de churrasco com molho de leitão”.

No afixe a fotografia é “afixada” num post sob o título de “Leitão com asas”, e curiosamente diz que foi extraída (“roubada” é feio) do blog Troll urbano . Um comentador do “afixe” de nome farpas espanta-se “da ignorância” de tão ilustres bloggers em matéria culinária e escreve que afinal o “frango tipo leitão” é um frango … em que após cozinhado, “… 5- Abrir o bico do frango e enfiar lá uma maçã (de preferência vermelha!) 6- Comer acompanhado com vinho da Bairrada ou espumante”.

Brilhante, “tipo leitão” corresponde a pôr uma maçã vermelha no bico (ou na boca) e comê-lo bem regado com espumante! Nesta linha pode haver “coelho tipo leitão”, “porco tipo leitão”, “truta tipo leitão” e até quem sabe “leitão tipo leitão”. “Bacalhau tipo leitão” será difícil por causa da maçã, ou melhor da falta da boca (ou do bico). Ignorancia não paga imposto, porque se pagasse eramos um país superavitário, ou talvez não…- só para fugir aos impostos até nos cultivavamos alguma coisinha.
Cronológicamente mais tarde Humor com bento também divulga a mesma fotografia mas com uma explicação mais verosímel. Avança com o nome e localização do restaurante (que é um “restaurante tipo supermercado” – isto promete!) – “Sr. Pipo” de Alcabideche e então a origem do nome respeita ao facto de ao frango ser cozida uma cabeça de leitão. Agora tenho dúvidas é se a cabeça é cosida ao frango ou cozida com o frango!! ou até as duas coisas, ou seja “coszida” ou será “cozsida”?

Num forum tsunami voltei a descobrir a foto, com a eterna dúvida se será “frango que sabe a leitão?”. Já comi na Ásia “frango que sabia a peixe” , por isso …. mas trocaria à vontade por esta nova especialidade.

Concluindo parece que Portugal afinal não está na linha da frente no desenvolvimento científico de transmutações genéticas e está mas é a fazer umas “osmoses” culinárias para fazer face à crise.

Pois é um post longo e complicado a falar sobre “coisa nenhuma”. Seria muito mais fácil explicar “um frango à Ricardo”, ou para não me chamarem de faccioso “um frango à Moreira” ainda quentinho e servido não com maçã mas com laranja (de Setúbal) pois claro…

Uma coisa é certa, divertimo-nos muito com esta coisa dos blogs. Isso é sem dúvida uma realidade. E nem é mau para esquecer o aumento do Iva.

Ommar Khayyam poetry

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 1:12 pm

(Literal)

Khayam, if you are intoxicated with wine, enjoy!
If you are seated with a lover of thine, enjoy!
In the end, the Void the whole world employ
Imagine thou art not, while waiting in line, enjoy!

O friend, for the morrow let us not worry
This moment we have now, let us not hurry
When our time comes, we shall not tarry
With seven thousand-year-olds, our burden carry.

The caravan of life shall always pass
Beware that is fresh as sweet young grass
Let’s not worry about what tomorrow will amass
Fill my cup again, this night will pass, alas

Happily I walked with the tavern down the line
Passed an old drunk, holding a bottle of wine
“Do you not fear God?” was reproach of mine
said, “Mercy is God’s sign, in silence I wine and dine.”

It is a day neither hot nor cold,
Clouds help the dry flowers unfold
Canary with his song to the flower told
Drink while you can, yourself don’t scold.

(Meaning)

In life devote yourself to joy and love
Behold the beauty of the peaceful dove
Those who live, in the end must all perish
Live as if you are already in heavens above.

O hark, let us not think of the morrow
Cherish this moment, far from sorrow
Life is a temporal gift that we borrow
Whether dead for ages, or leave tomorrow.

To be aware of each moment spent
Is to live in the now, and be present
Worry for morrow shan’t make a dent
Caring for the now, your mind must be bent.

Our world upon joy and love was once built
Why is it that we reproach and cause guilt?
If we can simply correct our moral tilt,
We too will only will what God wilt.

When events unfold with calm and ease
When the winds that blow are merely breeze
Learn from nature, from birds and bees
Live your life in love, and let joy not cease.

Rubaiyat (excerts) of
Omar Khayyam
[Abu ol-Fath ebn-Ebrahim “Omar ol-Khayyami of Nishapur”]

Persian Poet (1048 – 1123)

Em dia de nãos… Setúbal disse sim à Taça Maio 29, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 9:59 pm
Não à “dobradinha” sim à(o) Vitória
O Vitória de Setúbal conquistou com todo o mérito a sua terceira Taça de Portugal batendo o Benfica por 2-1 na final de Jamor.

O Benfica começou por abrir o activo num penalty cometido sobre Geovanni e concretizado por Simão Sabrosa, logo aos quatro minutos, mas o golo fez mal aos benfiquistas. O Vitória teve sempre mais a iniciativa do jogo, o meio-campo do Benfica não ligava o jogo -muitos jogadores em dia não – e assim o empate concretizado por Manuel José em remate ainda de fora da área, após jogada de insistencia de Jorginho justificava-se.

Curiosamente foi nos últimos minutos do primeiro tempo que o Benfica disfrutou de duas oportunidades para o 2-1 mas numa delas a falta de objectividade na conclusão de Simão (preferiu pôr no meio para a finalização de Nuno Gomes que não resultou) e na outra uma defesa in-extremis com as pernas de Moreto evitaram tal desfecho.

Na segunda parte e principalmente com a substituição de Fyssas por Dos Santos o Benfica apareceu finalmente mais dominador, mas talvez tal facto se tenha devido mais a uma estratégia tactica do Setúbal que apareceu mais compacto no seu meio-campo. Quem contra atacava agora era o Vitória embora também não tivesse muitos lances.
Um remate de Manuel Fernandes obrigou Moreto a brilhar aos 64′ defendendo para canto.
Num desequilibrio provocado pelo meio o Vitória consegue ganhar espaço para Ricardo Chaves rematar à entrada da área, Moreira defende para a frente e Meyong à vontade faz o 2-1.

Trapatonni faz entrar logo de seguida Mantorras para o lugar de Nuno Assis, mais tarde Delibasic para o lugar de Nuno Gomes, o Benfica tenta o ataque, carrega, mas sem jogadores parao futebol directo e sem altura na área setúbalense foi tempo para os vitorianos defenderem e erguer a Taça justamente por ter sido a equipa mais colectiva e mais eficaz

Em dia de não em França à Constituição Europeia também houve nuitos nãos “à dobradinha” da Taça : Fyssas (fraca exibição), Manuel Fernandes (aquele remate foi a excepção) , Moreira (sofreu dois golos quase sem defender e com culpas claras no segundo golo), Nuno Gomes (entalado entre dois centrais pouco fez) e Trapatonni (infeliz nas “substituições” do inicio do jogo ) e incapaz de reagir à adversidade, sem arriscar nada mesmo quando perdia. Dia “sim” para todos os adeptos setubalenses que venceram o campeão e coleccionaram a sua terceira Taça de Portugal (segunda conquistada aos “encarnados da Luz”).

A arbitragem pareceu-me regular mas a actuar muito defensivamente cortando demasiado o jogo.
