I adore marzipan, Thor, though I've never eaten the piggy version! LOL!!

Not many traditions left in my family since my parents died, but Ed's and my family are invited over for Christmas dinner.

Christmas Eve night we will place our luminaries in front of our home with the rest of our neighbors around the lake....silent night....

God, it's difficult to speak of our Norwegian traditions and foods without knowing the English counterparts for it. Rice porridge? Little Christmas Eve? Mandel? Marzipan? I hope some of that made sense to you.

LOL! Little Christmas Eve sounds interesting. So does mandel, but I cannot guess what it is without Wikipedia.

Do you eat marzipan on its own or as a topping on a cake? I noticed that there were a lot of marzipan bars on sale in Oslo newsagents, so I suppose you're used to eating it in its own right.

Actually, I think mandel can be translated as 'almond', now that I come to think of it.

Yeah, we eat a lot of marzipan as stand-alone candy, especially during Christmas. I thought this was a common thing throughout Europe, though? Here's a picture of a "marsipangris", as we call them:

marzipan is well known in Germany too, especially when it comes from Lübeck, where it is produced in very high quality.

Prime rib on toasted sourdough bread, with horseradish mayonnaise, pepperjack cheese, and lettuce. Washed it down with a bottle of Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout.

And curiously, I got a box of Lübecker Marzipan for Christmas, alongside lots of other marzipan/chocolate.

Struggling with a hangover today, so it will have to be something fatty. A burger or something. I haven't decided yet.

Lamb, sautéed potatoes and aubergine bake with goat's cheese and some broccoli. And probably a bit of salt, man.

She rations your salt? Please sign the online petition to allow Tallguy total free-reign over his spices and seasoning! I really hate lamb. Just the smell of it sickens me. You may have my portion.
