10 Awesome Facts about Me

Personal

I have always enjoyed reading clickbaity, Buzzfed-esque 10things about me posts! Here is my first attempt (its not gonna be my last, I love the simple, self-centered, trashy high it leaves me with!)

  1. I’m a morning person. If I sleep until 8 am I panic and feel like I’m wasting the day away.  
  2. I used to be a party girl out every weekend. NowI don’t really drink alcohol.
  3. Although I am clownishly clumsy, I have never broken a bone.
  4. My favourite animals are whales. Nothing beats aFriday night watching listening to David Attenborough narrate about these majestic creatures.
  5. I LOVE the ocean. I spent my childhood summers on the beach so I always feel like I’m home when I’m by the ocean.  
  6. I’m a fiddlehead who loves making messes almost as much as I love yelling at my boyfriend to clean them up!
  7. I am incredibly clumsy and am always breaking electronics. My phone has a giant crack in it and I recently stepped on my boyfriend’s Ipad, cracking the glass screen (not sure how much longer I’m gonna have a boyfriend…)
  8. I have been to the Danish Music festival“Roskilde Festival” 7 times in a row.
  9. I used to be prejudiced towards Americans and anything to do with the Unites States. Now I’m moving there to marry an American –Prejudice never gets you anywhere! 
  10. I like working with kids but whenever I see a green, snotty nose I want to puke and crawl into a cave far away from any children.

If you have any fun facts about yourself please share in the comments! It’s always fun to read!

Vegan Traditional Danish Open-faced Sandwiches with Rye Bread // #Rugbrødsmadder

Recipes

We eat a lot of rye bread in Denmark. It’s really filling bread and contains lots of seeds and fibers. Most Danes top their rye bread with an assortment of meats; liver pate, sausages, salami, meatballs, etc and it can be hard to jumpstart your mind and come up with vegan replacements since discouraging imagination is a Danish national pastime. But I don’t let society tell me what to do and came up with the following ideas 😉

1 – Boiled potatoes, vegan mayonnaise, and cress. (My favourite)

2 – Vegan crème cheese and scallions. The brand I use is called “Creamy Sheese” from Bute Island Foods. It has the perfect consistency and taste. (they also have a tasty garlic version!)  

3 – Vegan “Leverpostej” (Danish liver pate). “Levevis” makes a very good creamy, smoky version called “Krydderpostej – Smørepålæg”. I often top it with vegan Danish remoulade (a creamy sauce) and fried onions.  

4 – Vegetable spread and fried eggplant. Fry the eggplant with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Use your favourite vegan vegetable spread.

Traditional Danish fare doesn’t need to be a bland, meaty, unimaginative affair. I find that replacing archaic meat toppings with creative vegan ones really spices up an otherwise boring cuisine.
