Two nights ago it was time for the yearly crayfish party with my amazing childhood friends. We’ve been friends since we were babies, how cool?!! Plus our significant others that have been with us for a long time now :) We are always having so much fun together and we share tons of awesome memories!
When aunt Nina comes by with home made cinnamon buns!! Yeah!! Thank you!
We’ve been back in our Småland house for a few days. Eddie-Bo has hockey camp in Nässjö, and it’s so much fun!
The weather is great today, we’ve been working in the garden, that I think is so relaxing. The kids just ran over to our neighbor so I think I’ll lay down in the sun for at least ten minutes :)
Lets talk about our delicious dinner last night! Our friend ‘Darling’ (another friend’s kid thought that was his real name, since his wife Pattis always calls him that, haha) is amazing in the kitchen. Yesterday he came over with home grown potatoes, rib eye, sausages and then he made his own béarnaise sauce. Of course. I love having Darling in my kitchen!!
Instead of a regular salad I decided to do grilled veggies.
And I made roasted red beets with goat cheese, caramelized walnuts and arugula salad. (I made the same earlier this week – a real favorite!!)
Next summer their will be a big sliding door instead of the window you see, and a big deck so we can sit outside!
Mia made chocolate mousse and Gustav mixed mojitos (with home grown mint leaves!). Both to die for!! I went to bed 3am :)
Today we all took a long boat ride since the weather was great. For lunch we made a fab ‘Pytt i Panna’ of all the yummy left overs. So so so good!
Thank you my friends for two fun spontaneous days!
Last night’s dinner with Challe and Glitzy, at Glitzy’s house, yummy, amazing and so much fun. She loves to cook but decided to go with fast food :) Best fast food ever if you ask me. Thank you!! Also. Since she now has adorable baby Stella, 7 months, she kicked us out at 11.30, haha!! My paaaarty girl is now a tired mama!!

Breaded fresh cod, mashed potatoes and peas, yum!! Easy to make, just so boring to peel the potatoes…
Panerad torsk, potatismos och ärtor, så himla gott!! Smidigt att göra, förutom att skala potatis då, måste ju va bland det tråkigaste finns. I Usa gör dom oftast potatismos med skal, inte lika gott tycker jag!
Funderar på att börja skiva på svenska oxå? Vad tycker ni om det??
May 5th – Cinco de Mayo!! What fits better than celebrate the Mexican holiday with Fajitas, Quesadillas, Margaritas and Coronas?! (Sorry Jonathan, that I took a picture while you were eating, but you look amazing anyway like always!) A fun night with great people, and the kids had a blast as well!
Today is a busy day. I started the morning at the gym, then I’ve been packing up our bags, cleaning out one guest room (my mom is coming to visit us soon, yeah!) and organized the rest of the house. Busy day, but we are going to the airport in a few hours, and I’m so excited for our family vacation!
