Health food Danish style

The French insist that you won't get fat eating cheese as long as you always have wine with it. I just wonder if the Danes would insist that you won't get fat eating stegt flæsk as long as you have enough beer with it...

We didn't feel like cooking last night so we went to a local kro (I think bar is the best translation, but it's not quite the same) and had this national speciality.

It is fried fatty bits of pork that you eat with boiled potatoes and parsley sauce. It is of course delicious, but you can feel it clogging your arteries with each mouthful.

J had sausage and chips, he used the chips to get the remoulade (mayonnaise stuff with bits of cabbage and pickly stuff in it) into his mouth until he realised that his finger worked more efficiently.

    The flaesk sounds deadly, especially with beer.
    Is "Rennies" a danish firm?
    That's a very skinny dane tucking in there - do you eat most of the food?
    Lovely pics of all of you.
