Holidays at home = eating a lot?!
While munching on some Swedish sweets, and listening to the whistling sound of my aunt sucking on a “Djungelvrål”-lollipop, I thought of all the good food I / we ate in Sweden this summer…
Shrimp and eel sandwiches (NB Two different sandwiches on the same plate)
Strawberries and “köpebröd” (bought coffee cake instead of home-made)
My favourite Swedish crisps with “grill” flavour is not at all the same as barbeque chips… and unfortunately they disappear too quickly. New dip favourite is the “Bearnaise” dip, also tasty with grilled meat!
At Kivik’s annual market we bought these cream buns (gräddbullar)…
… as well as traditional “market sweets” (marknadsgodis) – yummy!
Fika at Skepparpsgården by Haväng – a traditional cinnamon bun, chocolate cake (kladdkaka), coffee and Elderflower cordial (fläderblomssaft)
My grandmother and aunt treated my sister and I to 5 different kinds of buns and biscuits – two kinds short of the traditional 7…
Wine in a box – the most popular way to buy wine nowadays in Sweden
Outdoor waffle making – a summer tradition!
In the evening we had tea and ice cream out on the deck
A new Wednesday recipe and etiquette question poll will be published next week!
