Is anyone else having this issue?

My recent posts section is not updating.  The last post showing is a post by Augustine (yesterday).  Since that time, I'm sure there have been hundreds of additions but nothing.

Any ideas.  I've tried to refresh the page.  Log out, log in... nada!

No... much worse.  Originally from Kosovo/Montenegrin area (Kosovo proper), but family migrated South to Sar Planina and into present day FYROM.

I'm going to start booing you out for having an unfair advantage - I want some heavy boozing too. Preferrably Ursus bear, tuica or palinca preceded by mici and sarmale. Where are all the Romanians? It's supposed to be the second largest church and yet seems to have the smallest number of internet users. Can I become an adoptive Serb? We can say I'm from Vojvodina if you like!  Grin

Well, slivovica is plum brandy like tuica isn't it? That's good. If I'm not mistaken cevapi are little spiced minced meat roll things cooked over charcoal? If so, that's pretty much what mici are. Why would you want to deny me those? (Now I'm tempted to turn Croat  Wink). Do Serbs have something like sarmale? They're cabbage leaves (usually salted like sauerkraut) stuffed with minced meat, rice, herbs and cooked in a large pot with tomatoes. If so, denying me those would be tantamount to a declaration of war.

 Sin-Vladimirov is right...we've got Sarma (cabbage rolls or Stuffed cabbag en anglais). I'd also have to say... you can share in everything... but not the delicious litte critters known as cevapi.

What's this pelinkovac? Sounds like a Croat-ified version of (Romanian) palinca, which is a spirit made from various fruits (most commonly plum or apple, but sometimes others). It reminds me of visiting my aunt in Slovakia and being offered either cognac or sampanski. I didn't know what the latter was, thought to myself 'Surely that can't mean champagne' and plumped for cognac. Guess what, sampanski meant champagne! That's as daft as if Romanians called it sampanescu!

For some truly hideous spirits, Romania must win hands down (but at least they have some really good ones, too). Least bad (but bad enough) is one called samahonca that's made from sugar beet but tastes suspiciously like earth, the other has a name I've forgotten but is flavoured with chicken guano - I do not joke! Luckily, that one's only 'enjoyed' in a very small area on the wrong side of the Carpathians.

Well if it comes from Vojvodina the words are probably related even if the drinks described aren't, given that Vojvodina is on the Romanian border and has a reasonably significant Romanian minority. I obviously can't say which language influenced the other, though. This isn't uncommon in the region, with Romanian using the word rachiu (from Turkish) as an alternative word for vodka - which obviously doesn't taste of aniseed like the Turkish drink does.

Anyway, when you say really bitter, are we talking Campari bitter or something closer to absinth? The latter I find quite pleasant (probably my Czech genes - it's not French contrary to popular belief) but I'd rather have root canal work without anaesthetic than drink Campari.

So true - never tell a Romanian they have lots of Turk-isms, though, they won't like it (however true it is). The only thing I can imagine being likely to cause more anger is to tell them they use Magyar words (Romanian has a couple)!

About the only out and out Greek word I can think of in Romanian is portocala (orange - the fruit, the colour is portocaliu) but there may be others.

What about this drink, though? How bitter is it/what is it made from?

Palinkovac is made out of special weeds... weeds and growths that have medicinal properties.

It is very hard to describe taste in words. So... I dont know, think of something bitter and then multiply by 10 and you will get what Palinkovac is like. It is a very aquired taste. Either you can drink it or you just can not. There is nothing you can do about it.

Well, I don't know about Serbian cheeses, but telemea is similar, but far superior, to feta. Telemea grated on chips (fries, for you Americans) Mmm....

Cascaval (sort of hard-ish cow's milk cheese covered in wax), especially the smoked kind, and cas (huge round white sheep's cheese full of little holes) are great too, but urda is just vile. It looks like cas, which is dangerous, but is made from goat's milk and tastes like billy goats smell! It's a favourite of my wife, which tends to cause 'issues'. Wink

What are Serbian cheeses like? I'm now bracing myself to find that they're identical to the Romanian ones but with slightly different names. Are you two sure Serbs are Slavs?

I mean cascaval, pronounced 'kashkaval'. Does your name for eat mean anything in Serbian, because the Romanian name means 'horseman's (or calvaryman's) cheese' - because they used to be carried by cavalryman, the wax keeping them fresh for the duration of a military campaign.

And, yes, I'm sure Romanians aren't Slav - the language is almost the same as Italian!

Obviously the 'eat' in the above sentence should have been 'it' - just realised I've been typing with a Romanian accent! Roll Eyes

And, no, the Romanians didn't steal cascaval - they were there long before the Slavs arrived in Europe - you cheese-stealing reprobates! Grin

On a, slightly, more serious note, I'm really interested in the similarities. It's a shame everyone in the Balkans doesn't get along better - they all seem so similar. I take it the similarities don't stretch as far as you also having a chicken sh*t flavoured spirit? Probably a good thing...

WE BROUGHT CHEEZE WITH US!!! Grin Everyone knows that! LOL
And then you said:"Hmmmmmm this is so goooood" And stole it... shame on you!




Funny thing is that Romanians being non-slavs and being surrounded by slavs (well atleast on Serbo-Bulgarian Side) never had any problems with Slavs (Southern Slavs that is - Serbs, Montengrians, Slavic Macedonians (Greeks please forgive, I jus dont know how to call them), Croats, Bulgarians). While we slavs managed to do lot of stuff that was not so nice to eachother.

Also, Romanians are only Romanic (as a group of people, Anglo-Saxonic, Germanic, Romanic, Slavic, Hungro-Finish...) people that are Orthodox. This is a great thing.

I am not very aware of the similarities. I come from Bosnia. But I am sure that Serbs from the border area (with Romania) would be able to witness a whole bunch of things that are the same or very similar. Faith is one of them.

Yeah, the Romanian situation is odd - but in a good way. Romania seems to get on with everyone but the Hungarians (history is obviously the reason here!). Certainly there are no problems with Slavs. My wife's from the border with the Ukraine, her grandfather was Russian - nobody seems to be bothered at all by the mix.

The Romanian Church used to use Slavonic for the liturgy (in theory at least, there's a verb a boscorodi that means to mumble Romanian in a way to make it sound Slavonic - I kid you not) and Cyrillic was used until 19th century. It's useful for theology because Romanian has Slav, Latin and Greek terms that all have slightly different meanings - like catolic means Roman Catholic whereas catholic in the Creed is sobornicesc. Very useful.

The thing is, it sounds as though I could go to a Serbian village sava or you could come to a Romanian hram and, apart from language, we'd barely notice a difference. That is wonderful! I think we should start up some sort of Balkan exchange program (not just limited to Orthodox either). An added benefit of this would be that I could frighten you all with Romanian folk music and thus discourage anyone from ever invading Romania again - it just wouldn't be worth the aural torture!

Sivisokol,
 
You've got this food stuff locked down... I'm coming to your place for a party.

James,

You're beginning to sound like Gus Portokalis on MBFGW.... There are two types of people in the this world, Greek, and those that wish they were Greek (sub Romanian with Greek). LOL  Tongue
