This week's adventure was pretty tame compared to the Korean food--in fact, it was barely an adventure!
Nothing on the menu was too unusual. The "wildest " thing we ordered was pickled herring.
Which the kids totally loved. They devoured it. In fact, Andy said something like "I'd like to take a bath in a tub of pickled herring and eat my way out." So that was a big hit.
Pickle was preoccupied with the vase of flowers on the table and wouldn't leave it alone.
They looked pretty mangled by the time we left and she spilled the vase's water all over the table. Sorry Scandinavian restaurant!
The trolls all over the wall kept her somewhat entertained too.
I don't know much about trolls--but apparently they wear earrings? And smoke.
Since the food wasn't that exciting, we played with Gooser's "fake nose" glasses that he got as a prize at the dentist.
So on to the food...The inevitable Swedish pancakes!
I had tuna salad (boooring!). Speaking of tuna, my husband calls it "tuna fish" and I tease him about it. Do you people out in Blogland say "tuna salad?" Or simply "tuna?" Does anyone else say "tuna fish?" I think it sounds like something a 90 year old woman would say. But maybe I'm wrong?
The side order with my tuna fish is something called "pickled cucumbers." Now, call me crazy, but aren't pickled cucumbers...pickles? Anyway, they were good!
Patrick had Swedish meatballs
AND a cinnamon roll!
That lunch totally sounds like something Homer Simpson would order! Mmmmmmm. Meatballs and cinnamon rolls.
The desserts were fun. We shared some blueberry soup
But Gooser's rice pudding was the best. It was warm and topped with lingonberries. Very cravable!
We ended with a pic of the kids amongst the trolls. OMG these kids need haircuts!!
We continued our Scandinavian experience across the street at the
Pickle got a Pocket Baby. Which she lost five seconds after we left the store. That was a well-spent $6.95!
And Gooser got a book.
And all the kids got Swedish fish.
"Scandinavian food--you're a'ight. But get me back to Koreatown!!"
