…also known as smorgasbord. the smörgåsbord originated in sweden in the 14th century as a variety of hors d’oeuvres served prior to a meal before sitting at the dinner table.
tonight at dinner we were served smörgåstårta. the swedes decided to take the awesomeness that is the smögäsbord and shove it into a SANDWICH cake! it consists of 3 layers of white bread with a ton of mayonnaise…and liver pate…and mayonnaise…and some more mayonnaise…and shrimp and ham and roast beef and pickles. ewwwwww! THEN you top it with peppers, lettuce, cucumbers, oranges, tomatoes and other random fruits. it always ends up being soggy (remember the layers of bread with mayo??) i can say that it is eatable. that’s about it. it’s just eatable.
p.s. i am watching tv and someone just said they were having a smörgäsbord for lunch. i love when weird stuff like that happens!
swedish word of the day: tillfällighet- coincidence.
