Basically the same in Central Swabian (I am from Stuttgart):
   I måen, mir häbet s Spätzles-Bsteck z spät bstellt.
   literally: I guess, we have ordered the noodle cutlery too late.

And when my niece married a guy with the Polish surname Brzeczek
and had asked for cutlery for their wedding present, guess what we
have told them. ☺


   Zerst hemmer denkt, mir häbet für die Brzeczeks s Bsteck
   z spät bstellt, aber nå håts doch no glangt.
