Yes nepe which is close to what Barbel would call them too! 
Haggis with neaps and tatties ( in English that's a concoction of stuff in a sheep's bits with turnip and potato)  ajb007/biggrin

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: christmas dinner

Thanks. The translation is correct. I didn't know the Scottish word, but there are many Scottish worlds with Norwegian roots (bairn, Kirk etc.) . We also jokingly call a head "nepe". I find it really funny that a turnip is called "a Swede"  ajb007/lol

ajb007/lol interestingly,  in some parts of the UK we call the head a Swede!  but I'm sure after the root vegetable not the country.

If it helps ( which it probably doesn't) over here turnips and Swedes are actually different,  a Swede is bigger. Yellow and sweeter,  a turnip is basically a big radish.  fascinating stuff eh? 
Further more we have a kids programme called abney and teal,  in this programme is a character called neap who looks like this

Re: christmas dinner

Tonight I'll have turkey. I'll have to make it clear that I'm not good at cooking, so I mainly work in consumption of, and not the production of , good meals.

In Norwegian a turkey is called a "kalkun". The word is derived from the town Calcutta, because it was belived the bird came from India. Thank God there's no such misunderstanding in English  ajb007/biggrin

Re: christmas dinner

Don't think my body can handle anymore of this. Massive Christmas feast, followed by my birthday dinner with the family, and then I went to a house warming party for my Uncle yesterday and that was another massive meal.

I think I'm going to have to eat at home today and just not eat anything at the New Years party I'm going to. My body can't handle this lol

Re: christmas dinner

I'm in Bergen visiting my younger sister and her family. Tonight I followed my nephew and niece went "julebukk" ("Christmas ram").
It's an old tradition that's remisent of Halloween and trick or treat. Kids play dress-up, visit the neighbours and sing Christmas songs. In return they are given sweets. My niece and nephew went as a pirate and Batman.

Re: christmas dinner
