roast-turkey

Turkeys aren’t native to Norway so it is peculiar to me that a roast turkey dinner for New Years Eve is a tradition.  (I guess if rice can become tradition, as in rice porridge, why not turkey too?)  All the normal Christmas trimmings are included (because at New Years, Christmas is only half over in Norway) – potato, carrots, beans, brussel sprouts, tyttebær sauce and gravy.  We were a little unconventional this year with roasting our potatoes and adding in roast onion and cherry tomatoes but traditions in Norway are traditionally easy going.
