Marinating the pork in buttermilk is a wonderful way to tenderize it and make the flesh much more succulent. If you can't find pork escalope minute steaks ask your butcher to prepare some for you or use tenderloin and flatten out with the palm of your hand or between two pieces of baking parchment with a rolling pin.

Hugo - Episode - No 744 - Midsummer Madness

New Midsummer Day is the traditional day for picnics in Hugo's house, and a great effort is being made this year. The day is sunny, verging on sultry. The inane conversation jabbers on, like the flock of sparrows in the nearby hedgerows.

Especially one's like this from Mark Bourke who says... 

'Marty on Lyric is my inoculation from anything the day can throw at me, he’s up there with Byrne, Wogan & Andrews as Ireland’s greatest broadcaster.'..........Thank you Mark......Tenner in the post!!

Other messages......

His morning show on Lyric is quite simply the best radio in Ireland. He has such a perfect delivery. An encyclopaedia of clever dadjokes and puns but with a light touch, never hanging on for the applause. Reminds me of a jolly, self-deprecating Colonel Mustard.   Jonathan McCrea

...Thanks very much for all the good cheer every morning Marty and never going on about all the bad news out there!! You are a tonic to be sure!! ........Patricia in Offaly

....Good morning Marty, I am a nurse working on night duty and listen to lyric through the night. Always glad to hear your dulcet tones at 7am as I know I will be off duty soon. .... Keep up the good work and music and the 'corny' jokes....Moira in Dublin 6
