Made from scratch and absolutely delicious. And not even the slightest bit difficult. I should just post the recipe here. It's an old well-tried recipe that my mum has been using for like ever. Would any of you want it? :) Now I've got a large tin of them in the freezer. Ready for Christmas.
Maybe you didn't know, but I am a list freak. I list everything. Anything. (Some of the things you don't even want to know. Ha!) Lists help make order in my head. My latest one is for sweets I want to try making. Christmas is just around the corner (I know it never feels like it, but trust me, it is) and what better time to start experimenting in the kitchen? Note to self is: Make the most gorgeous sweets for Christmas! :)
has got to be fruit salad! Definitely! I should go make myself some right now. And then watch a movie. Yes, that's it.
Here's how to make one for yourself! :) Oh, and make sure you eat it with whipped cream. It's the best.
Yesterday I saw the first film in the Underworld Trilogy. It's about vampires and werewolves. For a movie about "such creatures" it was probably an ok movie. But really it confirmed the fact that although I'm really into genres such as action, fantasy, sci-fi, adventure (all of which fit with the Underworld movies), I'm just really not into vampires. Or werewolves. The question is whether to watch the following two movies...
She looks really good though... Kate Beckinsale. :)
Woah! That's a lot of new people visiting my blog! WELCOME! :)
This is what we had for supper...
It really really really is that good :) Especially with this bread. At least if you're the least into veggies and/or soup. And the best part? It is oh so very quick and easy! 30 minutes tops from scratch. Gotta love it!
Do you want the recipe?? Just let me know! :)
So I'm on this quest of learning how to cook proper-homemade-from scratch food within the Swedish cuisine. Stuff that my mother and grandmother would make. First out (at least here on the blog) is pannbiff/wallenbergare or Salisbury steak in English, which is not really the same thing but well, close enough. Publication of recipes can definitely be arranged for if there is any interest - give me a shout should that be the case!
Pannbiff/Wallenbergare with potato wedges, chanterelle sauce and steamed cauliflower+broccoli+carrot.
This is the kind of food one kan feel good about eating! And so yummy! The chanterelles me and mum picked during one of our walks earlier this autumn... :)
I've been by myself here at home almost the entire day. J came home for a quick meal at noon. I made him delish veggie soup (no really, a good one) and oven baked pancake (sorry no pictures, next time!). Yummy and easy as. Always a nice combo. I also made a large batch of my (current) fav bread. In between I squeezed in a few episodes of two of my favourite tv-series:
All this while also trying to cure my very persistent cold... wish me luck.
On the couch, glued to the latest issue of (one of) my fav home+decorating magazines, Swedish Allt i Hemmet. Nothing quite beats it. A new magazine that is.
It is a christmas special. Needless to say, I loooong for Christmas by now. Ha! My head is full of inspiration and ideas and plans. Traditionally non-traditional. At least it makes sense in my head. More about that... when we get a little bit closer. Let's now enjoy A U T U M N, yes? :)
Hello again :) Pause over? Play pressed? Maybe, and maybe not. Anyways, I just really wanted to show you a recent project of ours. As well as save it for myself. A concrete top for our tv bench. I love the way it turned out so great! :)
If you are in Sweden, look this way! :) I so like this! It's like a warehouse clearance sales place... and they focus on sustainable, honest, green business. At low, competitive prices. Well, it's all on their website, unfortunately in Swedish only, but if you can, do check it out! :)

Look how beautifully gorgeous! :) It's like the rule for setting this table was the more mix+mismatch the better! :) I think I need to go second hand shopping for a bit... :)

Guess who saved the present? (The shop assistant was clearly a fill-in during vacation times and the gift wrapping looked just like it...) I salvaged the beautiful paper and the string, re-wrapped it (in a correct manner), then added another string (pink lace-like one) and the white wooden heart on which I wrote the couple's intials and our names on the back. Turned out perfect, despite it all... :)
The day before yesterday, me and J went to a wedding together with my parents. It was such a beautiful day and an amazing wedding! :) My friend E got married to her R. Here's a whole bunch of pictures!
I absolutely love the first picture! It's E's father keeping watch for his daughter out the church doors. Then I love the picture of the little girl - cutest ever! :)

Well, we've had a great couple of days in the archipelago! Good company and good... everything :) Pictures are: The cottage we stayed in, evening light, detail 1, the family Swan, old harbour at Oxelösund, J wakeboarding, house at gorgeous location just by a canal, detail 2.
While the blog stands still, I do not! :) We took off yesterday and headed out to an island in the archipelago. Specifically the archipelago outside of the Swedish village Oxelösund. Beautiful. The picture is yesterday's sunset :) Outside the window, J and his brothers and cousins are wakeboarding. We'll stay another night and then head back home tomorrow. See you then!
Yesterday I went strawberry picking with mum&dad. It was the best day, not too hot, not too cold, the strawberries we just perfect. And deliciously sweet. I got myself about 5 liters, they are now in the freezer. At least the 4 liters that were left when I was finally ready to put them in...
