I forgot about the international nature of the forum, yes thats correctOMG! I didn't know either, Pat, but I just hadda Google it, and despite never even EATING one, I think I miss 'em - or rather - I've missed an incredible snack! Sandwiches made with fries or chips?! Is this right, Stormie?
I´ve certainly been eating fries, but mostly with meat and of course at McDonald’s. But fries and sandwich with ketchup or HP sauce doesn´t have any resemblance of a gourmet dinner, so to speak...Fries are certainly somewhat of a religion here too - "Hello, welcome to the US - would you like fries with that?"
Yes, I know. There are new influences from other countries. Also in Sweden. Some of the traditional food are not so tasty not just "surströmming" (fermented herring).UK is a really great multi cultural society, our favourite food used to be fish and chips, but it's now a Balti (from the India and Pakistan)
And I just love surströmming! But down here in southern Sweden it´s very hard to eat it. You have to be on good terms with your neighbours cause you can smell it all around the block. It´s actually a traditional delicacy in northern Sweden, where I actually come from.LOL - oh my:
"When opened, the contents release a strong and sometimes overwhelming odor, which explains why the dish is often eaten outdoors. A Japanese study has shown that the smell of a newly opened can of surströmming is the most putrid smell of food in the world"
Takes a special palate (and stomach) for that!
