Informal Poll

If you have a moment and the inclination, please leave a comment to settle a little debate that sprang up in our house today.

Donald says that mashed potatoes (mos) and "sausage" (korv) make a delicious meal. He claims that it was a popular lunch, back in his school days.

The thing you have to realize, though, is that here in the U.S., he uses hot dog wieners, because we haven't seen anything like real "korv" in local shops. He says it's the "same thing. . . almost", but they don't look the same to me. Oh, and the mashed potatoes (today, at least) are really reconstituted "potato flakes". Yum yum, right?

Here's a picture of the real thing, for illustrative purposes:

My position is that a bunless hot dog with mashed potatoes/potato flakes sounds downright yucky. (No offense to Sweden, but the "real thing" doesn't really appeal to me, either.)

So. . . What do you think? Yummy or Yucky? Somewhere in between? We promise we won't have our feelings hurt or hold grudges. ;o)
