to make me happy...
'Fiskeboller i hvit saus med kokte poteter og raspede gulrøtter'
(fishballs in a white sauce with boiled potatoes and grated carrots)
is not exactly common fare over here, so edible gifts from kind friends are very welcome!
Actually, this traditional Norwegian dish almost ended my relationship with The Professor before it even started! The first dinner I invited him to in my student flat 27 (!) years ago was 'Fiskeboller'. Years later he confessed that he had almost decided to stop pursuing me as this was the worst thing he had ever eaten...!
Well, he didn't stop pursuing me and found out I could cook other types of food, too (which is good as he is not particularly interested in cooking himself)...
But I only make 'fiskeboller' when he is not home.
Fortunately, Our Boy has got more of his mother's food taste so we really enjoyed it last night.
And there are leftovers for today!
A real treat - two days in a row!!!
