Meatballs with mustard mash

Happy Meatballs Day! Yes, it is a thing. We have a national meatball day in Sweden. And it is a great day! To be fair, we like having days for things; waffle day, cinnamon day, kladdkaka day, there’s even a broccoli day (July 1st)!

Friday night Tacos is a modern classic in Sweden. Some marketing genius came up with the term Fredagsmys (litteraly translated as cosy Friday, but it means staying in on a Friday and be with your loved ones) and Tacos has become a major part of that.

Pasta salad 

It’s a sunny sunny day and all I could think of eating was a nice cold pasta salad. It hardly counts as cooking but it was all I could manage on a day like this. You can tell I’m definitely from a nordic country as I can’t function when it’s over 25 degrees.  Continue reading “Pasta salad “

Banana bread
