Another strange thing Klara likes to eat is vinegret. I posted a recipe a while ago. It’s a salad made with beets, potatoes, cucumbers, green onions, green peas, carrots, and pickled cabbage. I pickled the cabbage myself, by the way. I made some of this vinegret (which contains no vinegar, by the way) for the guests who are coming today, and when Klara asked to try some, I was sure she’d hate it. But I was completely wrong. She refused the Mac and cheese lunch I’d made her and ate the vinegret instead.
I’m also making another beet salad with walnuts, garlic and dried figs for the guests. If she likes this one, too, I’ll be completely weirded out.
I was going to make turkey, and taught Klara to say the word “turkey” but one of our guests doesn’t eat meat, so I’m doing my signature salmon baked with oranges, spinach and tomatoes dish.
So our Christmas menu is very untraditional with salmon and two beet salads. The New Year’s, on the other hand, will be so traditional, it will be like it’s 1983.
