Stoughton, MA. January, 2013

And here I was thinking I was so smart to have avoided not only the lingonberry preserves and the bulk of the gravy from my Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes dinner at IKEA. Now comes the news that testers have found horsemeat in the meatballs themselves, in spite of the meat ingredients being listed by IKEA as beef and pork. Actually, the scientists indicated they’d detected “a trace of horse,” which strikes me as amusing, on a par with a waiter’s once telling me that a dish had “a whisper of spinach.”
