On Friday my mom and grandma arrive so this week I am really focused on that and not so much dinner but this what I have so far
Dinner – Salmon with Garlic and Parsley Pappardelle
Dinner – Meatballs and Spaghetti – See Below
Dinner – Roast Chicken with Rice and Gravy (never got to it last week)
Dinner – Pork Chop with French Fries and Cole Slaw
Dinner – Not planned yet since we will be doing a big shop for our house guests
Dinner – Whatever my mom and grandma want but I think pizza since it is fast and easy to order
Meatballs are a big part of the Swedish cuisine but in my 9 months of living in Sweden and almost four years of living with a Swede I have never seen them eaten the ubiquitous Lean Cuisine way with egg noodles and a creamy white sauce.
There are few common ways besides being on a holiday smörgåsbord table.
One being as shown below:
This is from a trip to IKEA, my husband loves the plain boiled potato whereas I prefer mashed.
What he really loves though is the meatballs served with a side of spaghetti noodles.
Yes, this is my husbands favorite. Plain spaghetti noodles topped with ketchup and mustard. The first time he said he was going to eat this I thought he surely was joking but no this is a real thing in Sweden. I am happy to oblige as it is an easy meal for me to prepare but I just cannot get behind eating it myself.
So when Mr.H is craving this childhood favorite I use soy sauce and sriracha to dress my noodles. And funnily enough what seemed like a logical combination from my childhood Mr. H was baffled by the first time he saw me eat it.
What is your favorite way to eat meatballs?
