A “flexitarian” is someone that enjoys vegetarian meals without being one. I wish I would be the kind of person that could live off only veggies (and no milk, IIIIK) but I’m just not there, yet? For the time being I enjoy experimenting with vegetarian meals not only for the environments sake but also to get more ideas and motivation to prep and eat veggies. It’s healthy!

I’ve been having some fun in the local book shops lately, trying to find The Perfect Cookbook, and we think we have a favorite at home right now. The perfect mix of vegetarian meals, and meaty ones, and some fishy ones. I’ll probably right about this book more in the future, but for now – let me tell you what I made a few days ago!

While roots were roasting in the oven I mixed together broccoli, grated cheese (insane amounts), almond flour and two eggs. I rolled the batter into “equal sized” balls and was supposed to fry these in a pan while keeping them round. So next time I’ll just make little burgers instead of balls… Served with sour cream or cream cheese and sweet-sour sauce, together with the roasted root veggies this was a perfect little meal!

and here’s another show I won’t be watching – RIP X-files

 

1993-2000 Dana Scully and Fox Mulder

Dana Scul… Nope, it’s FBI Barbie with an open mouth and unrunnable skirt, holding Fox Mulders arm in 2016 everyone! Sure the fashion has changed since then but MY GOD. NO.

 

Dana Scully was from day one everyone’s crush, so why did they have to go and make her into just any pretty FBI-Barbie that is on TV right now? CHEAP TRICK X-files, I am so upset! Let Dana age ffs!

dear blogs i love you

I heard an interview on the radio today, about the heroic woman who started he Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (founded 1933!), and the reporter asked what Elise Ottesen-Jensen would be doing today if she was alive in this day and age. Would she be a blogger, or.. – NO, both interviewees replied with a laughter. This view is SO tiring!… Read more →

This weekend, I drove straight through the middle of Sweden

I left spring and actually kind of warm weather by the coast to visit the yearly conference for Swedish Society for Nature Conservation in the ski resort Åre, in the mountaineous parts of Sweden close to Norway.

My first thought was that this was a small village gone large – with still small village roads but filled with traffic and its sides covered with odd buildings in the style of the Alps. So weird! Yep I’ve never been to a ski resort before, and I’m glad I went off season. It must be sooo crowded in season!

I am truly intrigued by mountains. Compared with my husband childhood Mt rainier outside of Seattle, or my childhood Skule mountain (which is more of a hill really) – these mountains seem like something I can run around on playing that I am Heidi. Probably it’s not as easy to run up these hills as it looks to me, but I like the sense of a 3D landscape. In between this mountaineous area and our usual home turf High coast, the middle of Sweden is quite flat.

The conference was amazing, I met so many interesting people and I really tried to get more photos out of the event because of memories and this blog, but I didn’t have time! When I wasn’t talking or listening I was busy writing down a ton of new ideas and stuff I learned from the workshops I attended. It didn’t take long until my head was stuffed, and then I went to the bar and had myself a mojito because wow – have been craving those since pregnancy and moving to the countryside! (Growing mentha in our kitchen window as we speak.)

Then I slept in my car on the parking lot. YEAH! I just kind of had to try that experience. Don’t need to do it again.

In the morning it started snowing. I maxed out my brain with some more inspirational talk and listens, and by lunch I was just DONE. With all that slush pouring down, and the cold winds from the mountains, I just wanted to go back home! And so I did, and I got a five hour music-filled deflating car ride. The closer I got to our home the happier I got, I live in one of the most beautiful areas in Sweden with the cutest little houses and the best weather – at least this weekend!

GAAAAAWWWWWWWDD.

And today, the monday when EVERYTHING was supposed to happen, I totally crashed and slept until noon when hubby came by and was all “uuuhhm… I don’t think you should sleep more”. Correct dear, I have things to do.

every Friday

I get the day “off” and usually go to town and drink a bucket-load of chai latte while hubby hangs out with kiddo. I read and I finish up work. And I buy frozen pizza. We love pizza but don’t have any pizzerias close enough, so I have started to make my own! I usually don’t have time for it… Read more →
