The last visitors to the summerhouse have left😦 and soon I’ll get up on the roof (of the shed) and help my father put on the new takpapp (roof paper??).. I am not too excited, painting is much more fun but the roof has to be done first according to my father! The shed is a reminder of the old house that used to be here, and is yellow & white while the two new houses are grey, red & white. Despite what my sister says about my way of dressing, I am itching to make the three buildings match!!
It has been a busy few weeks with visitors from Lund, Löddeköpinge, Stockholm, Brussels, Geneva, Oslo and Copenhagen but now I only have 9 days left in Sweden before I head back to Puerto Rico and O on the 1st August. It has been so much fun to see everybody, but now I will focus on the family. The blog has been suffering as well since I am still stealing internet time from my father’s 3G-card equipped laptop. Promise lots of photos, stories and recipes when I get back to the Caribbean in August.
In the meanwhile, here’s a super simple summer recipe (a mix of more or less the same recipes from Jamie Oliver, Elle Interiör and Bergenström’s Under Valnötsträdet):
- 6-8 tortillas (Santa Maria sell tortillas with different flavours such as Sundried tomato & herbs, but simple wheat or corn tortillas are fine too)
- Cheese in thin slices – choose according to your taste, I prefer a stronger [older] cheese such as Provolone, Grevé / Prästost but it also depends what I can find in the fridge…
Put the cheese slices on top of one tortilla, you don’t have to cover it completely as the cheese spreads out when melted. Cover with a second tortilla and heat in the frying pan (NB. a dry frying pan, i.e no butter or oil) on quite high heat. Be careful not to burn your quesadilla and turn it after a minute or so. Use scissors to cut up the quesadilla and serve with a green salad, a tomato salsa or guacamole.
PS My arm where the bee stung me is still a little red and swollen. I went to the pharmacy on Friday and got some allergy pills as the pharmacist told me that I had had an allergic reaction. She also said that the bees are particularly poisonous this summer (don’t know why though!?).
