Vending Machine Gross Item of the Week Awards
Sweden – just saying the name evokes images of Ikea, SAAB, Volvo, ABBA, Absolut Vodka and, of course, meatballs (yes, I just said that.) Think about it… have you ever not been to a rockin’ good party and those crazy little meatballs weren’t served? It’s in the party planner’s manual or something… but alas, I digress. This week we pay special tribute to that happy-go-lucky vending machine of international flair and goodness as we indulge in the culinary party staple that is….
Swedish Meatballs & Noodles
Ok, I admit.. I don’t get the noodles in this dish. I’ve never seen Swedish Meatballs escorted to the party with noodles, but hey, who am I to judge!? The important thing is that you have the opportunity to purchase these happy little balls of beef, and make a little party for your co-workers right at your very own desk! Your day getting a little drawn out and stale? Pop open this favorite app and pass the plate! You might even get employee of the month for it!! The popular vote never hurts!
Wine Pairing: This week our meatballs would just taste divine when accompanied with a John Duval Entity Shiraz. This fine Australian red displays dark, fruity tones of blackberry and plum, with just a touch of mocha and oak. Just the right blend for our happy, meaty orbs!
Beer Pairing: Our beefy dish requires a beefy beer! For fun around the keg, pair this week’s crowd pleaser with Big Bear Black Stout. A hint of caramel with a bitter kick, this will make one happy, dynamic duo of fun!
For that good time, friend making one stop party in a tray, pick yourself up some Swedish Meatballs and let the good times roll!
