Since we have become so many nationalities at work, a new tradition was recently started, where we serve food from the various countries where people come from. Against better knowledge I volunteered for arranging a traditional Swedish lunch. Since it is Thursday today, the choice of menu was quite given: Thursday in Sweden means yellow pea soup and pancakes.
I have to admit that I’m not very good at cooking, but fortunately we have very good kitchen staff, so it was enough that I described what I wanted us to serve, and that I helped doing what I was commanded to help out with (mince meat, whip cream, etc). Fortunately it seems that today’s venture was successful, even though I noticed that several people didn’t quite get that the idea is to have both pea soup and pancakes. Oh well, just pancakes for lunch isn’t so bad, either...
