spent late summer in ericeira portugal with friends and we had an amazing time. good food, sangria nights, great waves and lots of relaxing and catching up. we lived in ericeira a couple a years ago and it was great to be back. it’s so close to lissabon so spend a day here going to the flea market, eating more good food and delicious portuguese cakes. it’s such a beautiful city. top picture is from peniché.
love mexican food and we cooked up this mexican dinner recently. made chili senza carne, homemade tortillas..used this recipe (used whole wheat flour instead of regular), guacamole, coleslaw and it was delicious.
rosendals trädgård is this open garden where they grow bio veggies and fruit. during summer they have a farmers market (we bought cavolo nero…haven’t been able to find it anywhere). when we were there they made pizzas in their wood oven and they looked fantastic. they have made a cafe and a bakery inside the greenhouses, but we brought own fika and enjoyed that under the apple trees. i want to go there when it’s christmas time (which is soon?!) and drink a glass of glögg and eat swedish pepparkakor.
vintervikens trädgård is a really cute trädgård where they serve food from their gardens and you can sit under the apple trees and enjoy a cup of coffee and cake. on sundays they have farmers market where you can buy eco, local grown veggies and fruit, bread, honey, juice and jam. really love this place. a must for me is their christmas market 7-8 december.
started to make my own granola bars. i found a great recipe at my new roots you can check out here. it’s a great snack in between meals, it really picks you up this hemp protein granola bar and when you make it yourself then you know what’s in it.
here we go exploring more of sthlm’s burger places. for now this is one of my favorites. so this is the #2 stop in the burger guide the svenska hamburgerköket. remember 1 stop at vigårda here. had grosshandlaren and it is for now one of the best burgers i have had here. straight up and simple, the meat is from swedish farmer who care and it’s minced at the restaurant, fries are served with cold béarnaise…so good! and prices are good. they also serve a serious milkshake with cherry on top and all.
