Älska Sverige

I just came back from Farewell party for me. I’m leaving Sweden on next Monday… It has been very hard process about transition. I love Sweden from first day of being here, so I didn’t want to leave at all.

So here I’m sharing some of my highlights….

Where beautiful flowers are everywhere, knows how to care them enjoy them. And I got to live by the sea which is most beautiful area!

And I got to learn how to bake! Swedes are really love to bake, and they love all kinds homemade stuff!

Semla! Its super delicious and fatty, so people eat on fat day which is last day before Lent starts.

I found my gift in baking and cooking! It’s so fun!

I will surely miss meat balls until I come back to Sweden! Chocolate balls as well.

And got to learn how to knit! I’m knit pro now.

I can see what things I’ve learned from being in Sweden. There are much more things I can share but I’ll finish here.
I hope to come back after my MA degree in U.S.A.

BUT I will enjoy my last days here.
Vi ses snart.


cheese platter for b-day party!

I had 26th birthday party last thursday evening! I’ve thinking to have private quality party so decide to do cheese platter evening! I haven’t done it before but I’m cheese lover so.

First question came to me was which cheese I need to buy it? So I’ve been searching online days and days, found good advice from ‘A cup of Jo’ blog. I’m flowing her blog and she has so many things to learn from. Cheese plate guide from her.

So I decided to buy each cheese from different milk, but when I went to shop it was really hard to find each one from different milk. First I’m not fluent in Swedish and it wasn’t categorized by milk. I stood at cheese cornet at ICA MAXI(Big supermarket here in Sweden) about 20 minutes, realized I brought paper that wrote down names of cheese from Cheese plate guide.

So I bought Castello Blue Cheese (Denmark)/ Høng Camembert (France)/ Grayère Reserva (Switzerland)/ Les Petit Fiance (France.Goat cheese)/ Manchego (Spain)/ Västerbatten Ost (Sweden)/Cambozola (French/Italy)

Then prepare cheese an hour before so it would be good if its room temperature you will enjoy best flavor out of cheese. And prepared biscuits and baguette (French bread would be good) and pear, grape is best combination with cheese. Also prepare cranberry source or cranberry marmalade. And I put out some olives as well.

Then enjoy party with either Champaign or Wine, and Henry Mancini – Breakfast At Tiffany’s Original Soundtrackgreat fellowship with dear ones.
