On Sunday we went to Århus to meet with 3 other American blogger couples at Tara and Paul's; she is my American friend living in Denmark with her four kiddoes and husband who works for Vestas. It was the first time that all 4 couples had come together as a group WITH our husbands, so it was really fun to watch the guys get to know each other!
Vi snakkede meget om amerikanske produkter fordi vores veninde Holly er lige kommet tilbage fra USA og bragte MANGE amerikanske ting til os (Tara, Patti og jeg) såsom: Cake mix, Brownie Mix, Nyquil, A-1, Chocolate Chips, Butterfingers, Fruity Pebbles og Goldfish Crackers---alle ting som vi kan ikke købe i Danmark. Vi var SÅ spændt!
We talked a lot about American grocery products because our friend Holly had just come back from a trip to the US and brought us (Tara, Patti, & me) LOTS of goodies such as: Cake mix, Brownie Mix, Nyquil, A-1, Chocolate Chips, Butterfingers, Fruity Pebbles and Goldfish Crackers--all things that we cannot buy in Denmark!
Så vi snakkede om produkter som vi savner, sagde jeg at jeg allerede har skrevet min indkøbslist til min tur til Texas næste måned og en ting som jeg vil gerne købe denne gang er "Green Chiles" og "Enchilada Sauce". Pludseligt gik Tara over til skabet og bragte ud en 2 dåse green chiles og en dåse OLD EL PASO Enchilada Sauce som hun har købt hos Superbests Amerikankse Sektion og GAV DEM TIL MIG!
As we talked about the products we miss, I said that I had already made out my grocery list for our trip to Texas next month and that this time there were two things I wanted to buy that I usually do not--green chiles and Enchilada Sauce. All of a sudden Tara walked over to the cupboard and pulled out 2 cans of green chiles and a jar of OLD EL PASO enchilada sauce that she had found in the American section of Superbest and GAVE THEM TO ME!
Jeg var MEGET lykkelig men jeg indset at Tara og jeg har været i Danmark for lang....... fordi jeg spurge hende hvor meget koster de og da hun sagde "Enchilada sauce kostede KUN 35kroner", sagde jeg "DET ER GODT!"..... Vi var spændt at have enchilada sauce som koster SYV DOLLARS! LOL.....Det er alle relativ...
I was VERY happy, but at that moment I realized that perhaps Tara and I had been in Denmark too long.... because I asked her how much they cost and she said, "The enchilada sauce was only 35 kroner," and I said, "That is GREAT!".... We were actually excited to have a jar of enchilada sauce that cost SEVEN BUCKS! LOL....guess it's all relative!
