Korv

On just about every corner in Stockholm you can find a 7eleven or a kebab shop or a hot dog stand. All of these places primarily sell hot dogs, called Korv in Swedish. I hardly eat hot dogs, only when I go to New England to see my Pops every summer (we still have yet to solve the Schonland's vs. Jordan's debate) or at baseball games. I have to say, the korv adds around town don't make me want to eat more hot dogs!
Hungry? Why not eat a hot dog of unknown contents with some questionable pink stuff on top? Yummy! Nope, I haven't been hungry enough to try it yet but I'm sure Dale will try it one of these days.

At one Kebab stand around town I spotted a guide to help figure out what was on these dogs. I snapped a pic to share with you all and so I could remember to google translate it later! :)

Here's what I found out, left to right top to bottom:
Ketchup and Mustard - the classic, nothing mysterious there.
Cucumber-mayonnaise and Ketchup - hmm not too much of a stretch.
Relish and Mustard - If it's dill relish I'd eat it!
Mustard and Mashed Potatoes - Not a combo I had thought of before. Next . . .
Shrimp Salad - so that's what that pink stuff is! I think I just threw up a little in my mouth!
Roasted onions - This one I just might try, I bet it would be good!

The pink sauce mystery has been solved. Phew. Now I'll be able to sleep at night again!
Love Always,
Matilda

Daryl says he hot dog and mashed potatoes sound good. Guess we will be trying them when we come in June.
