|Swedish Red Cabbage (Rödkål)|
This braised red cabbage dish is usually part of the Swedish Christmas table. Its popular in other Scandinavian countries. I also heard that Germans prepare something similar, and I presume other European countries make some version of it. There are many different versions made in Sweden. The recipe below comes from Per Morberg, a Swedish actor, chef and news presenter.
Braised red cabbage might sound dull and boring. Not this version, the sweet and acidic flavours are quite addictive. I couldn’t stop eating them. The salad is quite refreshing, and of course cabbage is good for you as well. The recipe is available here.

A hungry Irishman called the emergency services because staff at his local Chinese restaurant were not answering their phone. The man called 999 to complain that his calls were not being answered.
When police reminded him that 999 was strictly for emergencies, he replied it was an emergency as he wanted to order a meal. Local police "arranged for the local neighbourhood officer to call with this man and give him some advice".
The article didn’t say whether the man managed to order a meal or went hungry. It is important that we eat, its necessary for survival so I guess he could have pushed his argument a bit further, but I don't think he would have gotten too far. At least he tried and I think the Chinese takeaway should give him a present for showing loyalty.
