But if you come for a visit, Chuck, I'll be happy to teach you to cook Swedish food, and say bork bork bork with the right accent!!

We have wonderful food, such as herring for example. I know you Americans love herring!

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

One more Swedish post, puleeze!? I like to make Swedish Meatballs. It's easy. You dump 5 lbs of frozen meatballs into a crockpot and pour over them a full jar of Heinz chili sauce mixed with a full jar of grape jelly! Cook for 4 hours on low! I have no idea why it's called Swedish meatballs...maybe because the meatballs are frozen??

I'm sorry, but that sounds disgusting!  ;D

And, as you may have already guessed, it's nothing like Swedish meatballs.

Here's a recipe for traditional Swedish meatballs (which I don't particularly like and have never made):
500 gr minced meat, mixed beef and pork
1 egg
2-3 dl cream, milk and/or water
1 small onion
0,5 dl raspings
2 cooked cold potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
salt, pepper, allspice (yuck)

And for the sauce:
1 tablespoon flour
2 dl cream or milk
1 stock cube
salt, pepper

I can't however guarantee that this is exactly how IKEA's meatballs are made!  ;D

Hmm...that's what my online dictionary told me to call it. But also bread crumbs, does that make more sense?

I agree that the recipe does sound disgusting at first, but it's surprisingly good. The meatballs are coated with a syrupy tangy/sweet sauce. Now that I think of it, I surmise the reason it's called Swedish meatballs is because it originated in the Northern Midwest of the US where lots of Swedish immigrants located themselves and developed these easy "hot dishes" (in other places called casseroles) to take to their Lutheran potluck events!

I have read that people who call them casseroles are considered uppity and are probably Episcopalians.  ;D

Well, that makes kinda sense in the way that many traditional Swedish dishes are sweet (which I hate), like the brown beans we talked about in some other thread a while ago.
