Well. It was interesting. I went out with all the other moms from school for a "Traditional Danish Christmas Dinner" a Julefrokost is what I think it was called. There was no turkey or mashed potatoes or yams or corn... I guess that's Thanksgiving, but that is what I would eat as a "Traditional Christmas Dinner".
This is what we ate:
Marineret slld med karrysalat · Stegt sild i lage · Sild i dild creme ·Fisketerrine med røget ål & æblekompot · Røget svinemørbrad med krydderurte-æggestand ·æble-fl æsk · Orangemarineret laks m/salat og nødder · Æg og rejer···Ribbenssteg m/rødkål samt brunede kartofl er · berberiand ·Glaseret juleskinke m/grønlangkål · Hjemmelavet leverpostej med bacon & champignon ·Medister m/hvidkålssalat · Salat af rødbeder & nødder i honninglage···Ostebræt med div. oste, hertil oliven samt frisk frugt · Ris á l’amande med kirsebærsauce ·Æbletærte med kanelcremeVi giver velkomstdrinken og mandelgaver.
I'm not sure what all that is and in most cases it's probably better I didn't. I do know that I consumed some... Pickled Eel was it? Something had bacon on it - and the bacon was good. The water had ice in it - so it was cold and that made me happy.
But it was fun to get away from my loving children for an evening and to meet some other English speaking people. I did come home hungry though.
