Caviar?

It’s funny to me, as a Texan, that Swedish children eat caviar in squeeze tubes.  Caviar was always an expensive delicacy when I was growing up, but over here it’s quite common for a breakfast snack on toast.

Of course, it’s mainly adults that eat the pure caviar.  The children like to squeeze it out of tubes mixed with cheese (horrible, I know).

Our children begged for this on their toast the last time my husband took them to the grocery store.  What he forgot to do was to ask them if they had any idea what caviar is.

They did not.

So now the staff fridge at my workplace will be getting a fresh tube of caviar and cheese so everyone can put it on their toast in the morning.

Lesson – Half Texan kids and caviar don’t mix.
