Grønnsaker? So vegetables are literally "green things," I'm guessing? We haven't technically gotten to the words for "green" or "thing" yet, but I think it's an educated guess :-P
That's correct :)
Green things would be Grønne saker or Grønne ting in norsk.
Creates an interesting mental image... "we've got fruit and... green things..." "you can't have dessert until you've eaten your green things." It's like the entire nation has decided that vegetables are kinda gross
We have the phrase "eat your greens". I don't see what all the fuss is about.
No fuss intended; I just thought it was funny.
This one includes things like carrots that we don't consider to be greens. Well, not in MN anyway. It is funny.
Hmm... Meat that has been in the refrigerator too long might also be a Green Thing.
Groan is right.
Does the word "grønsaker" include vegetables which are not green, like carrots?
Yes, "oransjesaker" never really caught on.
Jeg elsker grønnsaker!
Worst. Vegetarian. Ever.
This is definitely my Dad's favourite phrase.
gronnsaker, is the weirdest thing I've ever heard vegetables be called
I typed "grønsakker" instead of "grønsaker" and it got marked as wrong, instead as a typo. Does "grønsakker" mean something different, then?
