  1. The first time I served Frikkadelle in Canada, my guest was confused as meatballs are much smaller than my Frikkadelle 😉

  3. In Dutch, we call this dish: Frinkandellen! It is nearly the same word! 🙂

    • atchar is a pickle. In Indian foods they do many types of atchar using various vegetables. Frikkadels would have been made by the Dutch settlers here 🙂

  6. I am not sure what exactly is the problem. But like others have said, if the situation is abusive then by all means leave. If the job is not similar enough to what you were led to believe it would be, you might have the right to leave. But if this is an issue of homesickness and it is possible to get back home for visits, you should stick it out or renegotiate the contract. I hope that gives you food for thought.

  8. I agree with Cindy, where there is abuse or ill treatment, or a contravention of agreed working conditions you walk and not otherwise – unless it compromises your state of mind, which makes you not-very-useful to the employer in any case. But you should never accept a contract or job if you know that you might not be able to stick it out…

    • so true! which is why we often find ourselves completing a work task we don’t really enjoy 🙂

  10. I love the word “frikkadels.” it sounds so much better than meatballs, although it doesn’t really fit so well into that song, “On top of old smokey.” 😉 You sound as though someone has let you down, Tandy. ;(

    • You could try and translate the whole song! I have been let down, but I am learning that such is life – some people just don’t care enough.

  11. I totally agree with you…life is too short to stick with something that makes you miserable. Even if it’s only for a finite amount of time,

  12. Tandy, I’m going to need some suggestions as to alternatives for the fructose (sugar?) and the mango atchar (mango chutney?) – or if the mango atchar isn’t sweet, maybe abandon the sugar altogether and go for the chutney as a replacement for both?

    As for the question of when to leave, I have had experience of being in a job where the abuse and stress was so intense it nearly drove me to suicide. These days, I’d say if ever a job started to go in that direction – even in these uncertain economic times – I’d abandon it straight away. There’s no job worth the insanity. If it was a matter of missing the baby, or conditions back home – I’d say tough it out until the day you realise that the stress it is causing just isn’t worth what you are missing. Very often, that doesn’t happen and you are able to continue through to the end – but there are the occasions when it just isn’t worth it – from everyone’s point of view.

    • Hi Jenny, in all of my recipes I use fructose, but you can use sugar on a one for one basis. Usually I state this in my recipes, so this was a slip up on my behalf. If you cannot get atchar which is a pickle then use mango chutney and omit the sugar as most chutneys are sweet. I don’t blame you for leaving that job! Destructiveness is not something we should embrace ever!

  15. The trouble with a contract where no one is happy is that it isn’t working properly and the quality of the work will suffer. I say leave – annoying as it is for the employer, I find unhappy employees more destructive.

    • which is why in our industry we mostly let people leave as soon as they resign, rather than let them work the month out 🙂

  16. I have never, ever made frikadels! I think you should leave if the job scenario is abusive. But if it’s just about missing out on something, then you should tough it out

  18. Tough question; I think if the contract leads to abuse you can walk away, otherwise you have to stick it out. Frikkerdells are a winner any day 🙂
