Have Yourself a Danish Chocolate Mocha Christmas

Koppers Danish Chocolate Mocha Coffee BeansI’ve been a good boy this year, and Tomten brought some Koppers Danish Chocolate Mocha Coffee Beans to Schloss Bodissey this morning. He concocted the best possible Christmas present for me, one that involves chocolate and coffee and is Danish.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Oh, and also: Glædelig Jul!

Glædelig Jul -- Merry Christmas to all at Schloß Bodissey and to all regulars around here!

Steen said...

Glædelig jul to you all.

("Jul" - pre-christian word for christmas, maybe from hjul (wheel))

We are all looking very much foreward to 2009 here in DK.

mery Christmas Baron. Keep it up, I need what you are doing :)

Gort said...

God jul og godt nytt år.

Don't forget to put out some rommegrØt for the nisse.

Damon said...

Shouldn't that be Slot Bodissey?

Baron Bodissey said...

Nej, Damon -- this has been a true Nordic multicultural Yule -- Sinterklaas from the Netherlands, Tomten from Sweden, chocolate mocha coffee beans from Denmark, and a castle in Saxony. All we need is something from Norway, and the holiday is complete.

You can easily make your own Rommegrøt using this recipe

Alas, you will have to find someone else to make lefse if you don't know how.

I was going to suggest oil, but the porridge is certainly a better idea. Tastier too.

God Jul to all from al-Swedistan. :)

Damon said...

OK, point taken.

God Nytårs aften, Baron!

On a completely non-"anti-Jihad" forum I frequent, I posted the family Christmas-eve (i.e. northern European style) menu.

If you will indulge me...

My parents have air-conditioning, so we ignore the outside temperature, and go the "whole hog"...
There were 10 of us in total, 6 adults, 2 "young adults" and 2 kids.

Christmas dinner indeed proved to be extremely multi-cultural:

Piper-Heidsieck champagne
Pickled herrings (2 kinds) on pumpernickel with akvavit

Prawn and Crab cocktails, or oysters (for those that like them)

Open presents :) :) :)

Brazilian recipe turkey, with garlic and onion stuffing
Baked and glazed ham
Gravy, bread sauce, cranberry sauce, capsicum and chilli sauce
Token vegetables
Sparkling red wine

Plum pudding
Christmas fruit cake
Ice cream
Fruit salad
Riesling-style wines

I can no longer fit into my trousers...
