I love when I don’t have plans for Monday nights. That’s not to say that if any of you want to hang out with me on a Monday that I will say no, but I like having the beginning of the week to get sh*t done.
I know that a lot of people do their shopping/meal prep/laundry/cleaning/boring adult stuff on Sundays, but I say that’s nonsense.
Didn’t God rest on the 7th day? I will choose to follow His lead and catch up with the Kardashians, thankyouverymuch.
Anyway, seeing as yesterday was Monday and I had the evening wide open (well, besides the cleaning and clothes laundering), it was my intention to spend some time making a delicious new, healthy recipe to blog about.
And then I received a phone call from my dad before I left work:
“I made labskaus. You can come get some to bring home with you if you want.”
You should know that this traditional Scandinavian stew is one of my all-time favorite dishes. It reminds me of family. And Christmas. And my childhood.
Mmmm, tastes like childhood.
Sorry, this just got weird.
But look how delicious!
So obviously I threw my good intentions of light, healthy, interesting food out the window for the evening, but it was worth it.
I mean, I DID make brussels sprouts and a quick cucumber salad to go on the side of my beef-potato-gravy slice of heaven.
So worth it.
Hopefully sometime this season I will get my act together and actually prepare my own labskaus to share on the blog.
But if my dad decides that he wants to keep feeding it to me, I’d be ok with that, too.
