my mom's norwegian breakfasts were my fondest but also weirdest memories.

there was labskaus, which is a kind of gooey corned beef hash made with diced pickles and potatoes, and served with herring and fried eggs.

she was the best crepe maker that i've ever seen in my life, especially when we got to fill them with jelly or jam, or the more traditional butter and heaping tablespoons of sugar. well, mom didn't actually see how much sugar we put on, lol.

but the one that takes the cake, the reason why i think i have such a strong immune system is her norwegian breakfast milkshakes. into an ice cold glass of chocolate milk she would blend a raw egg or two until it became very frothy.
can you imagine serving raw eggs to a kid today?

they were absolutely delicious, and i looked forward to them on really cold mornings. it's the reason why i have such a shiny coat as well...

Doesn't everyone have fish at breakfast?

The Icelandic hotel included a "Scandinavian breakfast". My sister and I looked at each other and both said, "Scandinavian breakfast???" Well, it was a small smörgåsbord, with cold cuts and lots of choices of pickled herring and other fish and heavy rye bread and "French bread". Yup, that would be a Scandinavian breakfast. Of course there was lamb. It was Iceland.

I remember sipping on spoonfuls of soy sauce.

Another one I don't remember doing, I had an unusual urge to have a can of sweetened condensed milk, did it and it was good. Told my Mom about it and she told me my Aunt Carol used to take me and a can out in the backyard and we'd eat a whole can by the spoonful. I still get that urge every once in a while.

PF, a whole can of sweetened condensed milk? Now that's unusual.
