Books! An English/Czech dictionary, an English/Malay dictionary, a 1934 book on some rock carvings in Jena, a book on historic Gdansk, a couple of Polish almanacs (1969 and 1979) a Polish book on Business English, and one on letter-writing. Oh, and a Lithuanian/English dictionary, as I definitely want in on the Finno-Ugrics, and didn't have the heart to leave it there, sad and unloved.
@TechnicalKO My Machinery's Handbook, 1941, whilst they still covered the likes of forge work.
I have read of what might reasonably be found in goulash, and made my choices. Stock comes from lamb shank, which also provides well-cooked meat, to supplement the browned lamb steak. Seasoning is paprika, onion powder (out of onions,) caraway, garlic, S&P. Bayleaves, a single potato as thickener (this will be a rice dish,) and tomato go in at the start. Cook 45 mins, add red cabbage, mild Fushimi chilli, Basmati rice, cook until done.

Breakfasted, and asleep, after a cruel night. This is the last chronological image of our oldest, Garth, aka Daddy Dog, aka the Fluffy Puppy, which he always was. He would have been fifteen on the 1st of July.
Weakening in his rear end for some time, but still enjoying life, over the last few weeks, I had to get him unstuck a few times, as he couldn't always get up on his own, and had become fairly incontinent, so was sleeping on special absorbent mats...
