There isn't much more of a traditional Norwegian meal than spekemat or cured meats.  Spekeskinke (dried ham), Fenalor (dried mutton), and various salamis are served with potato salad, scrambled eggs with chives, lefse and flatbrod.  And of course this hearty meal calls out for beer and aquavit as opposed to wine. 

To celebrate my friend's arrival on the island and for bringing the sun with her, we celebrated with spekemat.

Woweeeeeee... This looks absolutely scrumptious.

FYI, saw the Charles Burchfield exhibited at the Whitney this weekend and thought of you! xo
