And for those (like me) whose German isn't up to snuff, here's the comment:

> "O that's really funny to find that outside of Germany. It's an old
> specialty of only one region in Germany, of Hessen (capital Frankfurt),
> especially the northern part of it. It's real name is "Weckewerk" and
> it's a traditional boiled sausage or meat pudding if you like, made
> after sluaghtering a pig. "Wecke" is a dialect word for bread rolls
> which were used very often instead of old bread. "Werk" means "work"

Many thanks for the all the ideas you posted.  I sent them on to her, 
and she was most grateful.
