Nature’s miracle

Nature sure is beautiful in the early summer. Just look at this little mother and her children…


Gooseberry compoteĀ 

4 cups water, 2-3 cups gooseberries, 4-8 tbsp sugar (depending on how sweet you want it) let it boil until the berries are all soft and mash them a little. Add 3 tbsp potato starch mixed with a little cold water (or more depending on which texture you’re after), bring it to a boil and let it simmer a minute or two. Let it cool a little and serve it (I like it quite cold with some cream and milk over), a perfect reminder of summer šŸ˜Š

Probably tastes great with some vanilla ice cream as well !

Week 7, 8 and 9

Every year Swedish schools close for a week (either 7,8 or 9 depending on where in the country) so that the kids/teens can have a winter sports holiday (or just sleep and relax) šŸ˜Š

In the south spring might have come by this time, but for the rest of the country there should be plenty of opportunities for skiing and/or skating! Many go abroad for some sun though. ā˜€ļø
