Mitt sommarlov

Det gick fort. Det regnade. 3 bröllop och 7 barn. Jensa köpte en Spider. Blev pankakor när Steve och Gloria kom hit första helgen i Juli, en söndag på Way Out West och idag då Carro tog VM-guld.

Summer Holiday

Summertime and vacation is not a good combo for sitting in from of the computer on Sundays. Maybe I´ll be posting something on a rainy day. Otherwise I hope to be back in autumn.

Sunday # 21 Summer in Stockolm, Norwegian Pancakes

...and yesterday we beat Denmark in what must have been one of the strangest football games in swedish history. With football I mean soccer Steph, socker in swedish is sugar, if something suger it means its bad, the opposite can be super, same word as in english, but it also has the meaning drinking alcohol. And here endeth the lesson.

Today I didn´t make any pancakes. My mom did. They are norwegian and are called svele
2 eggs
5 dl flour
6 dl yoghurt
1 dl sugar
1 tps vanilla
2 tsp baking pwder

My grandma was norwegian (on my father side). So a hommage to her.

Sunday # 20 Tea for two

This started out as a wonderful day. Now that is nearly over I can say it kept it´s promise. Been sunshine all day. I´ve been with the locals at the Street recycle festival, which is similar to what happens on Queen´s day in Amsterdam, but on a much smaller scale. Basically people take whatever stuff they don´t want any more out to the street and sell it, trade it or give it away.

Thinking there was no time for a pancake brunch me and Anna started out with tea for two.

The pancakes today contains Parmesan cheese, pine nuts and basil flavoured olive oil. So a bit like pesto. Served with rocket and cherry tomato.

2 eggs
2 dl wheat flour
3 dl milk
½ dl grated parmesan cheese
50 g roasted and fine chopped pine nuts
2 tbsp olive oil

When we were finished Jens came over ad had some of the above pancakes turned into mushroom or chicken filled crêpes.

Filling made with

2 small onions
dash of white wine
1 dl cream
½ dl vegetable stock
300 g champignons or chicken
black pepper

Sunday # 18 Cheese Cake

SO I just made cheese cake for myself today. I bought a prefab. Couldn´t think of a new pancake to make and was tired. I leave you with the lyrics for "Cheesecake truck" by King Missile, from the album Mystical Shit.

So then I got this idea about driving a cheesecake truck,
Because I figured at the end of the day I could take some of the leftover cheesecakes home,
And I love cheesecake.
So I went to the cheesecake company,
And they asked me if I could drive a truck,
And I said yes and they said you re hired.
So the next day I got in the truck with all the cheesecakes,
And I drove about a block and I just had to have a cheesecake.
So I pulled over and I opened the trunk and I got a cheesecake,
And I also took one for later,
And I took one for my friend Farmboy,
And I took one to bring home,
And by that time I had eaten one of the cheesecakes.
So I took another one.
Then I figured I might as well stop at my house to drop off all the cheesecakes.
So I take five cakes to eat on the way,
And I drive another block and a half to my house.
Now it s lunchtime so I eat ten cheesecakes and a cheesecake for desert.
I should point out by the way that all of these cheesecakes were very delicious.
Anyway, I decided that the only thing to do would be to eat all the rest of the cheesecakes and hide the truck somewhere and leave town.
And I miss everybody a lot,
But I m not really sorry,
Because they were very delicious cheesecakes.

Even better with music.

Sunday # 17 Rose Water Pancakes

So , this Sunday I have two confession. One:I lost my camera, so blurry cellphone picture. Two: Forgot to take a picture of the real hit today, Anna´s Eggs Benedictine.

Today some collegues from an old shut down hospital called Rosenlund. In memoriam I found these Rose Water Pancakes in a book about brunches, but unfortunately I did not find any Rose water. So did them anyway, even though the pun was lost. Turned out nice but Anna really won the price today.

I don´t really know how to make Eggs Benedictine (that is like proper cooking that takes proper skills) so I won´t go into that.
The pancakes, however, turned out to be something like the Amarican Pancakes made in January, but without the cottage cheese.

For 4 persons

3 3/4 dl flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
1 pinch salt
2 eggs, lightly whipped
2½ dl milk
60 g melted butter

400g strawberries
½ dl Maple syrup
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2 tsp Rose Water
100 g whipped butter

Sugar and cinammon, to turn the pancakes in before serving

Todays guest was Astrid, Elsa, Elin, Linus, Calle and Andreas
