We are still in Christmas mood here. Terje, Marta and I have spent New Year with friends at their cabin, but headed back home after breakfast today.
Work starts again tomorrow, so tonight is time for a last Christmas breakfast for the extended family (+ a boyfriend and a friend)
For the last about 10 years we've had turkey on the menu one of the days after Christmas Eve. This year we were invited to dinner parties those days, so the turkey had to wait. But now it is the oven, and in an hour we will be 8 people seated around the table
Turkey is a new dish here in Norway, adopted from USA, and when we first started to make it I got a recipe for the stuffing from Terje's greeat grandaunt, who died many years ago. She lived most of her grown up life in US, but came back to Norway to spend her last years here.
With the turkey we always serve rice, and a Waldorf salad.
I can't remember where I have got the recipe for the waldorf salad, I have it written down in my handwritten recipe book, and a note that I made it for the first time in 1987.
a small box of pinapple
2 stalks of cellery
1dl whiped cream
Dice the fruit, whipe the cream and mix it with majonaise, sugar and lemon.
Mix it all.
