The fish man was in town near Mr Puffin's work so it was cod fillets which Mr Puffin breaded and pan fried with homemade mash, a *red salad* of red and orange peppers, tomatoes and grated carrots with som freshly made (by the fish man)Skagenröra on the side

Ah, that explains everything.
Now I see why you're so keen on the Swedish way of life, no doubt you're sitting back with a glass of vino while the old man's slaving in the kitchen, after doing a day's hard graft and the shopping as well. wink.gif

Oh sorry, almost forgot, maybe alcohol is strictly forbidden on weekdays ?

Not your best reply Jack.

Puffin is an anchor here...you are not.

Be nice, it's not hard to do.

Typical Swedophile, No sense of humour. Not notice the wink.gif ????

You really need to get out a bit more and lighten up a bit

Name calling?

Getting out more?

OK! Missed the smiley face. Sorry.

Does "Swedophile: (your word) really mean that to you?

Sorry isn't bad.

I use it when I'm wrong.

I'm often wrong!

Boyfriend and I saw those ads for the Double Down, then we went to Cornwall and found a KFC, but they didn't have them!!! So bummed!!! They didn't have the mash and gravy either!!! That's like a KFC staple! But yes, KFC does not exist in Sweden. They were supposedly banned from Sweden because "they don't offer any healthy alternatives, like a salad". I do remember seeing one on the very first night we ever spent in Sweden, driving to our new home from the Gothenburg airport. A couple years later though while in the same area, I saw it had closed down sad.gif.

As for dinner last night, I was cooking for one so it was very simple. Snabbmakaroner with a white sauce (flour, milk, butter) flavoured with salt, black pepper, garlic, mustard, topped with cheese. Hate cooking for just me, so it's always something "healthy" like that! biggrin.gif

I have got to be careful what I eat and need plenty of fiber. Whole grain Ryvita with soft cheese. Easy in and even easier out.

Washed down with some prune juice.
