Swedish – Norwegian Christmas food

1 Comment

I mix the best from both places.

In Sweden we usually have a huge Christmas feast. A real Christmas table in Sweden should have 7 kinds of herring, 7 kinds of salmon, lutefisk, 7 kinds of meat and 7 kinds of sausages, at least 7 kinds of fruits and 7 kinds of cake, and 7 kinds of desserts and 7 kinds of home made candy, Christmas rice pudding, beer, aquavit, and crown of the table is the Christmas ham. It is actually so much I can not possibly list everything.

In Norway the Christmas table is not as hugh as in Sweden (as far as I know of). The main course is either Pinnekjøtt (lamb), Juleribbe (pork), juletorsk (cod), Lutefisk, and different sausages. But Norwegians are big on cakes and desserts.

Eating all of this is a bit to much. I usually pick what I like best from both traditions. And of course, I make it all myself.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
