    Tomorrow is April and spring is in the air!This day a year and a week ago, I was a newly graduated PhD. On the first of April, my parents and my sister and I flew to northern Sweden to Kiruna and further to Abisko to get some guaranteed snow. It was yet another snow-poor year in southern Sweden last year, so at last it was a pleasure to introduce them to the joys of snow. What I love about family visits (besides getting visits!) is how I can renew the first joy of discovering things through my family's reactions, and how our experiences become memories that we talk about for years.We did…

    It’s a special time of the month here in Sweden. It’s a payday weekend. Most Swedes are paid once a month, on the 25th of the month. So when that’s a Friday or Saturday, watch out.Imagine yourself alone, in a sea of Swedes on a normal Tuesday on your way home from work. Maybe it’s the 22nd of the month. Maybe you stayed late.

That’s a solid difference in claimed religious beliefs.Of course, you wouldn’t know it if you looked at the public holidays, which give people a day off: the Epiphany, Good Friday (known as långfredagen in Swedish, the long Friday, it seems much more fitting considering the torture and whatnot), Easter Monday, the Ascension, All Saints…

It was one of those performances where half of the ice still looked freshly zambonied after half a period of play. So the chant was not without good reason. But I did not participate.

As I walked across the tarmac, careful to not get sucked into a jet engine, I noticed people stopping. They pulled out their cameras and their phones and their tripods. And they stopped. I slowed down, looking around. Was their something worth photographing? A moose loose perhaps? Or a bear on a tear? Perhaps a fox wearing socks? Instead, I saw a plane. The same plane I had flown in on. Trees. The same trees that I had flown over.

    This is the second post in the “Super Scary Prepositions” series. The first, written around Halloween inspired the name. Since prepositions are scary at any time of the year, I’m going to stick with the title and just call it a series. Anyway, if you missed the first one, it was about the preposition till and was, appropriately, titled: Super Scary Prepositions: Till. This time, let’s take a look at the preposition under. Under is actually a relatively simple preposition to deal with. Under, like so many prepositions, helps to indicate location and time. It also helps us…

    Since you’ve all been browsing IKEA’s website to improve your Swedish, you may have noticed that a lot of Swedish cities, towns, and villages have similar endings.

Let’s take a look at ten different endings that you may find while shopping IKEA or driving through the Swedish countryside: Borg: Borg means stronghold or even castle. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that these towns and cities were at one point home to some sort of borg. Göteborg and Helsingborg are probably the best-known cities with the –borg ending. Fun…

    So this (dumb), guy (me), wakes up in the middle of the night. And he needs to use the bathroom downstairs. For the last few weeks he has been busy (off and on), refurbishing the rooms on the second floor, and because of that there's a very hard steel ladder in the middle of the staircase. The dumb guy manages to walk down the stairs without any problems. But then, a minute later, walking up the stairs, he has completely forgotten about that steel ladder.

    This is the Skutan bird sanctuary in Handen. The wetland is a bit messy at the moment as you can see. I have been here a few times and I have rarely seen any birds. If you have good eyes you might spot the bird tower. The lack of birds was something that the municipality also figured out and they are now trying to fix that. The big float seems like an impressive machine to do the job. It's an amphibious excavator. There's also a nature promenade here and I was standing on that path when I shot the top photo.

  • Sweet Potato Coins with Cardamom Creme Fraiche and Coconut Chicken.

    23 Apr 2015 | 1:34 am
    This is a quick and easy side dish and a very delicious one at that. Take a sweet potato or two - ideally longer rather than thicker. Slice it into 5 mm slices. Toss with olive oil and salt, and a touch of cumin if you're like me. Bake in the oven at 200°C for about 7-8 minutes on each side. You do need to flip them, but that's the only slightly bothersome thing about this recipe.After that, serve. A great dipping sauce is simply crème fraîche with a mango chutney and finely chopped fresh coriander.Also on the plate - basmati rice cooked in coocnut milk,  and coconut chicken burgers.

These bars - or cookies - are…

In a book I recently read, the main character was in New Orleans, and at a restaurant ordered delicious brussel sprouts, cooked in butter, with bacon and chopped dates. Intriguing!Just after reading that, I came upon lots of bags of gorgeous fresh brussel sprouts at my grocery store. I immediately knew what I had to make for dinner and I googled until I found this recipe.  I adapted it a bit and served it with some…

    Take four pieces of salmon fillet, in an oven proof dish. Mix creme fraiche with crumbled feta cheese, and some finely chopped capers, olives and sundried tomatoes. Spread over the fish and bake. Serve with boiled potatoes and some butter-fried sugar snap peas. Delicious, easy and quick!© Anne's Food, all rights reserved.
