Prawn sandwiches

A good man is hard to find, but I have succeeded. Among other things he makes the most delicious sandwiches! These prawn sandwiches were served this Friday - they look nice don´t they? On a light rye bread he put lots of fresh prawns (normally we buy them frozen), lemon wedges, salad, tomato and cucumber, sour cream, mayonnaise and roe from the shrimps. And beneath all these goodies was a little surprise: lightly cooked slices of our home-grown Jerusalem artichokes, which went very well with the saltiness from the prawns and the veggie crunch. With the sandwiches we had Estonian beer, as usual.

And when they were finished he went out in the kitchen and made two more!

Hello,
Last night i had a dinner of roast porc and side dish of a Swedish recipe out of(cabbage,onions,balsamic vinegar and apple juice).
Could you tell me please the name of this dish.. the host of the cooking show i've watche says it is favorite dish of Sweden.

Sorry, doesn´t ring any bells... Was it red cabbage? Because then it could be something we traditionally serve for Christmas. Maybe someone else can help us out here...

Thank you, yes it was a christmas buffet that she have prepared at that show, but i remember it is a white cabbage.

Yes! A good man indeed... Clivia, how do you preserve your Jerusalem artichokes so you can enjoy them in the heart of winter?
I'm putting this sandwich idea in my notes for my little men and my big man next week.

We have them in a plastic bag in the fridge and they keep just fine at least for a couple of months! And they keep fine in the garden too, we harvested these in late October but they can stay in the soil until the winter comes. Just don´t let them freeze!

Hi Clivia - Estonian beer? How exciting:) Was it Saku Originaal or A Le Coq?

And Relly - is this the recipe you're thinking of?

Ah, Tina Nordström - that´s a famous name here! When her show is on in Sweden they have to warn the grocer´s in advance so they can order extra of the produce she uses!

Pille, A Le Coq is our favourite, we take the opportunity to stock up when we are in Estonia for holidays...
