Plenty to read

I don’t know if I have mentioned it but Hans won’t be in Sweden for Christmas until next week. He was only here for a meeting this weekend and then went back to Germany 😦 I miss him so much. Okay, I will quit sulking now.

Helena and I ventured into the city today to pick up a few things. In the process, I got the last 2 Stieg Larsson books to read.

They have made the novels into films in Sweden. Hans wants to go see the 3rd film. I always prefer to read the books before I go see the movie so I have a lot of reading to do. I don’t mind, I am a bookworm.

There are so many different types of bread in Sweden. Loaves of bread, buns, baguettes and many others. This is a particular kind of dark bread that I like.

I need to go to a bakery in Charlotte and ask if they can attempt this bread because it is good!

I had some for dinner with salmon and a mustard/dill sauce.

I used pickled salmon (gravlax) to eat with the bread. It sounds weird, but it doesn’t taste much different from smoked salmon.

What is your favorite type of bread? I am a bread lover so I love about any kind of bread. I love to bake it even more than I love to eat it 😉

  1. So, what are some of the foods that Swedish people usually eat? Was it hard to get used to the different cuisine or products?

  2. i do not discriminate~i love all bread!

  3. any kind of bread is good with me, too – especially if it’s fresh!

    i love reading tons of books on vacations – hope they’re good!

  4. Gravlax and smoked salmon are both tasty :-).

    My favorite bread would have to be a crusty french baguette spread with real butter – soooo good!

    I’m a big German & Swedish bread fan, the darker the bread, the better. My fav is definitely rye bread (gluten free and much denser than a typical wheat bread)
