It's Julefrokost season in Denmark! Yes!
What's a Julefrokost? Well, literally, it means 'Christmas lunch', but it's more accurately translated as 'You and your friends get together, ruin someone's kitchen, mob on some Danish food, and get really drunk together. On a weekday.' You always end up going to like five of them. There's The Work One, The Friends One, The Other Friends One and, inevitably, The Random One. This year's T.R.O. is the International Young Businessmen of Denmark Julefrokost. I have no idea how or why I was invited to this, but as long as there's cold schnappes and weapons-grade roast pork, I'm in.
Last night was the first Christmas lunch of the season. Me and 12 other interns from our humble 'saving the world' organization got together at Søren's place to make an ambitious menu of sugar-roasted potatoes, homemade rødkål, and two unfortunate ducks. We started cooking at 4 pm, and we ate at 9.30. The most enthusiastic Schnappesters among us headed home around 2.30. Work is a struggle today.
