Quite a satisfactory weekend in culinary terms: on Saturday I did a version of Mar i Muntanya, a Catalan dish with, in this case, chicken, prawns, black pudding and a white sausage described as "Devon pudding" (in essence probably Hog's pudding), followed by Minorcan potato cakes. Sunday's meal cooked by kharin was a pork goulash followed by a Swedish apple and coconut cake.
Eurovision: in this house we preferred Germany ("she looks just like Helga from 'Allo 'Allo") or Ukraine ("I'm Spartacus!"), though we also liked Armenia and Estonia; we thought Norway was mediocre, though not the worst by far. I think Graham Norton was as blind to the regional bloc voting as much as El Tel highlighted it over everything else; I'm not sure why the UK had such a high sympathy vote, but maybe it keeps Andrew Lloyd-Wobbler off our streets for the other 364 days of the year.
