Anna: We’re have a Scandiwegian feast tonight. Scandi food is very in right now, so you’ll be pleased to hear our meal is bang up to date.
Peter: I’m thinking herring. I’m thinking roll-mops. Should we be eating this in permanent darkness? Or perhaps cut in two on a bridge somewhere?
Anna: It’s mackerel actually.
Peter: Well I know that. We haven’t had it for a while. I can feel those fishy oils opening my arteries.
Anna: Do you like it? What about the potato salad?
Peter: It was nice. You would be hard-pressed to pick out the potato amongst the beetroot. I’m sorry, I didn’t pick up on the horseradish at all. Was this 15 of our 5 a day?
Anna: It was a lot of veg. I like this recipe but there were too many bits to cobble together at once which just makes me cross. We are going to have it again next week but I’m going to skip the cucumber pickle, nice though it was, and not bother flouring the mackerel.
Peter: Why don’t you ask Maggie what she thought of it? She polished off the skin!
