rugbrauð supa!

On Wednesday night Gerður and Gísli invited us for dinner, for a real Icelandic meal and it was AMAZING!

Gerður made her fiskibollur, fishballs, not too unlike gefilte fish, but eaten warm and golden brown. For salad, she finely grated raw carrots and rutabaga and it was SO good. Of course we also had boiled potatoes and butter. Then to top it off we rye bread soup for dessert. They make this delicious sweet rye bread here that we love and apparently they also make a soup from it. Cook the bread in water, with lemon juice, raisins and prunes, and then top with whipped cream - wow, delicious! It reminded me of Indian corn pudding and Saba Tom.
