Quelle je ne sais quoi! Meaning: I Just Don’t Know What

Self has also just learned (an hour ago) from reading this book that the much-despised “hardtack”, which all Portuguese and Spanish seafarers were very familiar with, as it was a primary food commodity for long sea voyages (obviously, it never spoiled), was actually biscocho, a very delicious toasted biscuit, which self has been eating ever since she was a wee tyke growing up in the Philippines (silent scream silent scream).

And here self always imagined that hardtack was something disgusting. Like vegemite.

Stay tuned.
