Food memories from 2010, Part I

October 28, 2011

2010 started with Johan cooking Biff à la Lindström (Johan is the one who does most of the cooking, I’m very good at eating and pouring up wine/beer).

Breakfast with the traditional February-pastry semla which is a cardamom bun filled with almond paste and cream. I could have it all year around.

Baltic herring with mashed potato and lingonberry jam for lunch on a cold March day.

Typical food I had for lunch in Gothenburg to save money to be able to eat at restaurants more often; blood pudding with fried apple and cabbage.

Homemade granola, my addiction during Spring 2010 when I came home after swimming almost every morning during the week.

Johan’s pizza, I love a pizza with an egg!

Bruschetta made of Johan’s bread.

Very typical Gothenburg lunch in one of the market halls.

Another very typical Gothenburg lunch in one of the market halls.

My friend Min cooked some very delicious korean food for me, yum!

This is a common result of when I am “cooking” – a salad with pasta, an egg, some cheese & something made by Johan (for example tomato sauce).

Sometimes Johan comes home with a fish on his shoulder.

On Fridays in Gothenburg you could go out for after work which means you bought a beer and got some food for free – this was the best place where they actually served some nice bites instead of just tortilla chips and salsa 🙂

A typical Gothenburg breakfast is a plate with 1 croissant, 1 piece of bread with cheese (if you were lucky 1-2 slices of cucumber), a coffee, a glass of orange juice, marmalade and an egg.

A sausage I ate on my dad’s birthday because he loves sausage & I couldn’t be with him to celebrate.

    I love the egg on a pizza idea; I've never thought of that before! And: "Sometimes Johan comes home with a fish on his shoulder." – Ha!

    If I ever go to Gothenburg I think it will be on a Friday in February: semla and then "after work." It sounds perfect.

    Apart from eating and pouring the wine, you are also very good at taking the photos! And these posts with nice posing food inspired me to cook a-lot this week ( I am also not the one that cooks that much in our house)!!

    Sandra, can you make a list of "good places" to eat for students in Gothenburg. Like this place with a beer and full plate of big bites!!

    Das Essen sieht sehr lecker aus – Ihr könntet wirklich ein nettes kleines Restaurant eröffnen 🙂 Have a lovely week-end!

    Victoria > I don't know what places are still around, haven't lived there for a year and heard lots of places have changed, so my list would probably be very wrong 😉
