Yesterday I went with my mother to the supermarket, which is always such a treat for an expat… it is like being a child again in a toyshop – so many things you want to look at, touch, taste and buy! All of a sudden I knew what to make for lunch today for my father (working from home), O (working from home) and I (blogging from home?!) – a childhood classic (that I didn’t actually get to eat that often as a child as it wasn’t deemed very healthy…):
I needed some help from my father with the most basic thing – peeling the potatoes! I just can’t use the old, not very sharp potato-peeler (mental note: buy a new one for my parents), maybe because I am left-handed but I always end up peeling off half the potato in one go.
Peel the potatoes and try to save water by not letting the tap run like my father…
It turned out we didn’t have much frozen spinach left in the freezer
Eight potatoes proved to be perfect for 3 portions
Defrost the spinach in a little bit of oil or butter + salt
Boil the potatoes for 20 minutes
Hm, what do we language fascists say about the name of these fish fingers – särskrivning or not??
I had to take a break of course from the heavy cooking for a few sweets – not many left at the bottom of the bag. My mother and ate most of it already yesterday!
Frying the fish fingers for approximately 6 minutes
Pressing the potatoes for the mash – apparently I got so excited about the meal that I forgot to take a photo of the actual mashed potatoes! Add some butter and milk, salt and pepper to taste
Our Wednesday lunch in all its glory! My father remarked that he probably hadn’t eaten fish fingers in the last 20 years, and I, myself, can’t remember when I did it the last time!
