Saturday Recipe

I remember making this very simple recipe many years ago and enjoying it.

Pyttipanna (Swedish Hash Browns)

A very simple, pantry recipe to use up leftover meat. The Swedes eat this with pickled beetroot alongside, but I prefer it without.

6 large potatoes
10 oz chopped bacon, sausage, beef, pork (use what's leftover, in the fridge)
1 large onion, chopped rough
butter, for frying (be generous!)
1 -2 egg, per person fried as per your liking
2 Tbs chopped fresh parsley

1. Peel and dice the potatoes. Dice the meat.

2. Heat butter in a frying-pan and add potatoes, onion and meat. Fry until golden, turning often with a spatula.

3. When all the ingredients are golden, season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the parsley.

4. Serve the pyttipanna with fried eggs and a glass of cold milk.

Servings: 4


Have a great weekend

Toothache, Bowling, No Recipe,

Been having a lot of problems the last couple of days with toothache. Maybe that's the third thing? I have decided it must be. They fitted me in for an appointment at 5:45 on Thursday evening. Having taken some Tylenol 3 I wasn't hurting any more of course. At least not until the assistant tried shoving Xray plates into my mouth. Damned painful and I couldn't do it. Finally they managed to place them so I could. The upshot is I need 2 or 3 teeth pulled and one filled. I will then have to run around for a minimum of a couple of weeks looking like a toothless old hag until my gums have healed upon which time they will fit me with a plate. I just love it!!!! I'm not sure if I will go bowling during that time!! I don't know how people without insurance manage, our government doesn't cover us. For instance it cost me $108 today and I will get $43 (I think) from our insurance. At least we have insurance, but if you haven't how on earth do you manage? What that clip is looking so cheerful about I cannot imagine.

Bowled appallingly too, Matt beat me twice although I did win the third game. Blaming my legs, they were very tired today. Seeing the vascular surgeon next Thursday so I do hope he will arrange for me to have surgery ASAP. I have had to leave teeth problems til after I see him.

I might say the younger of the two alley owners was in shorts today, I know it was a lot warmer today but really!!

I'm sorry, I just can't get interested in any recipes tonight. I looked at several but nothing fired up my enthusiasm. Guess I'm a bit down. I promise I will find something for Saturday.

Have a great day
