The Jule-trance continues. Hilde and Egil, also in the neighborhood, invited us over for traditional Christmas ribs. In America, we usually eat turkey at Christamas but in Norway the meal is ribs, cooked carefully so that the top layer is crispy. They were so good! Accompanied of course by akvavit (literally "water of life"), the powerful Norwegian liqueur. Another fine evening of food, games, and good company. Thank you Hilde and Egil!
