International Food

Half the fun of traveling internationl is trying new food (well, sometimes lol)
Here are some of my fav's from the trip...
Here is a REAL french croissant that we had in Paris. These 2 cups of coffee and this 1 croissant cost us $24!!!

This is one of the desserts we had in Norway.. It was some kind of almond cake, topped with chocolate mousse. It was thin and delicious.

Here is the Danish version of a cheeseburger and fries! Pure Yum! It was impossible to pick it up and eat it with your hands, we had to cut it down into bites lol

Finally, a traditional Christmas drink in Scandinavia is Glug. It is a hot glass of wine that also has raisins and almonds in it. Richard enjoyed his, but I did not care for it, but it sure makes a pretty picture with the little gingerbread cookies!

Alright, last but not least.. For the non believers here is the proof. Smalahove is a traditional Norwegian delicacy usually eaten around and before Christmas time, made from a sheep's head. The skin and fleece of the head is torched, the brain removed, and the head is salted, sometimes smoked, and dried. The head is boiled for about 3 hours and served with mashed rutabaga and potatoes, and NO--Richard and I did NOT eat it! Here comes the picture... You have been warned! lol

Time to get the day started! Hope you enjoy yours.

And now I have new words for that Bill Mumy song "Fish Heads" running through my brain. Yikes!

("Sheep heads, sheep heads, roly-poly sheep heads. Sheep heads, sheep heads. Eat them up. Yum!")
