after watching something on tv about scandinavia, i had a strong urge to eat smørrebrød, those little open face sandwiches that would line up inside scandinavian cafe counter windows (though i remember salivating for some in prague, too). appealing & revealing all its yummy self, instead of being sandwiched between another piece of bread. forget about the dessert, i’m all about the savory.
i don’t think i’ll be heading out to any northern european country anytime soon but then again you never know. right now, all i know i want is one of those dang sandwiches. mmmm….what do i have at home to recreate this urgency?
wasa crisp bread + hard boiled egg + frozen precooked shrimp (defrosted of course) + cream cheese + fresh chives from the garden+ salt & pepper :
of course after that one, i wanted another one. can’t just have one, right? plus i still have the other half of the egg to finish. so then i made this w/ tomatoes minus the shrimp:
how was it? delish.
