Chanterelle soup that I improvised using only cream cheese, milk, mushrooms and chanterelle broth (and some pepper). Topped with some cilantro.

Lilla Napoli

After work this morning and a little nap we went to Lilla Napoli here in Falkenberg for a nice Saturday dinner. It’s a very small venue, but the pizza really is great, it’s something about the dough. It’s fluffier than normal pizza dough and almost melts in your mouth. And a big plus was that a beer only cost 50kr, and a glass of wine was priced at 65kr! Exactly what you need to win me over.

Picture one: Sundays balcony-dinner. Picture two: Saturday at Harry’s (deer meat and carrot purée).

On Friday Joel’s parents came down for a visit. Since they were a bit tired and it was pouring down outside we opted for a simple pizza night with some beer at home.

On Saturday we went to Gekås i Ullared (which is surprisingly the largest attraction in Sweden with over a million visitors per year) since they had never been. We walked around the enormous store for about an hour and bought some hair products and a microwave since ours broke the day before. When we got back to town we bought some beer at System Bolaget and then went bowling, which was also a first for the two of them. We went home after that and drank some beers before heading to Harry’s for dinner at 8pm.

On Sunday we all woke up around 2pm, pretty tired from the night before. Since the weather was nice we walked to the store, and when we got back I made pancakes served with jam and ice-cream. Then we decided it would be nice to eat dinner on the balcony since the weather was so nice. Steaks, potatoes in the oven and pepper sauce. It was such a perfect ending to the weekend.

Crayfish party

Last Saturday a few friends of mine decided to have a little crayfish party. These parties are very popular in Scandinavia and are seasonal, usually in the summer or early fall. We eat crayfish and other shellfish, drink schnapps and other beverages, but since all of us were kind of pussies when it comes to shots. So we opted for wine instead.

Study study study

On monday I started my little journey towards a fuller education. I’m actually quite proud of myself, I’ve been reading a lot and really trying to put in the hours every day. I even finished a day early, since my boyfriends parents are visiting this weekend! So now I don’t have to study tomorrow while they’re here.

Yesterday was my birthday, and I spent the day studying, and when my baby got home he had bought me flowers, cake and a present. We spent the evening watching The Notebook, which I finally convinced him to watch (birthday girl gets to pick the movie).

In 1,5 hours I have to go to work, and then I only have one more workday this month! Yay. New month, and who knows, maybe we’ll take a little weekend trip to Rome!

Rockoff 2017

Just came back from a vacation spent on the Aland Islands. It consisted of 9 days of partying at a music festival called Rockoff where various Swedish artists (and this year even Toto) performed. It’s the first year I’ve been able to attend every day since I was about 16 or 17, so I did the whole 9 yards. Here are the few pictures I managed to take during the week.

Started the week with couples dinner at my bf sisters place, where we also stayed.

First night, met my friends brother who is about 2m tall.

Lunch at Ångbåtsbryggan.

Couldn’t bring alcohol in, so we had to drink it all before. Tower of our accomplishment.

Dinner at ÅSS. 

The night Europe played. Couldn’t even see them because there was such an insane crowd!

Friday dinner at Indigo with the in-laws.

Freddy Kalas.

Norli & KKV.

Tomas and I from the last night at my friends birthday party. 

Now I’m back home in Sweden and it’s a bit weird. But it was a crazy fun week, and who knows, maybe I’ll do it all over again next year! Hopefully with a bit more cash this time though… Haha!

Visit

Yesterday we spent the whole day at the beach and then after dinner we walked down to the town for some drinks. I Love these hot summer nights.

Girls girls girls


Yesterday we had a girls dinner with kubb. After we drove to town and went to the hotel to play some pool, but the table was occupied so we sat and talked and drank some cocktails instead. Or Well, they did. I was driving. 

Midsummer weekend

We went up to Stockholm for some Midsummer (solstice) festivities on friday, and on saturday I had an audition. When I was done we sat down at a restaurant and drank some beers and ate dinner before the trainride home.
