Butter added

Today I used some meat I got last weekend when I made a recipe of broth for the magazine. I boiled pork and beef bones for 10 hours and when done I took care of the meat still left on the bones. So today I made a nice soup. 2,5 dl double cream, some broth, mushrooms and seasoned with green pepper.

I felt something was missing when I started eating so I just put a large slice of butter in the soup… Perfection… :-)  Butter make everything better…

Terrible photo of great dish

Since I was a way a couple of days I had to work some at the office today (and tomorrow). After work I went for a walk ot to one of our malls go get some food and wine (again).

Skärmavbild 2014-11-22 kl. 20.32.29

The reason for getting more wine was to make the same recipe as last week for the magazine. I was not happy with the photo and today it got even worse… The dish is really nice but it looks terrible…

Great day with Team DietDoctor

Today we had the first strategy day with the team behind DietDoctor.


We arrived yesterday so the morning started with hotel breakfast


For lunch we went to aa nice buffet


The dinner was something special. One of the best 5-courses dinner I have had. Ever…

The first dish was a nice salmon with smoked mayo and som bread crumbs


The second was a beef tartar.


The Third was the best dish of the night. A nice pice of fish and an extremely nice soup.


The fourth was potato puré (yes I tasted some of it), pork and a sausage. Really nice pork”


And finally a sweet dessert… I tried the chocolate and some of the sorbet. Otherwise I left it all.


I also had  a lot (for me) of wine 5 half glasses. One for each dish.


The intakes was a bit complicated to calculate but I think I am pretty close.

New job

After (almost) 15 years at my present employer I put in my letter of resignation yesterday. It was a tough decision to make but at the same time really easy… I have really loved my work and co-workers but the last two years have been a little of just “same old things” (and I do not mean my co-workers). I have lacked a bit of inspiration and opportunity to do new stuff. I have mentioned before that my company is being bought by General Electric so I did see some nice changes coming our way so I decided to stay. Then off course a really interesting job was announced and I just had to apply. It is in a totally new business for me. I have been working within i a company with really big projects and long deliveries (1-5 years). Now I am joining a company operating on much shorter financial cycles. I would imagine almost day to day…

The company I will start working for in February is

Skärmavbild 2014-11-18 kl. 21.18.52

One of the largest (if not the largest) sport retail group in the Nordic countries. Over 150 stores and 2300+ employees. I will be responsible for the Labour Law on group level. In a way a totally new area of Labour Law and collective agreements but the basic are pretty similar so I know I will be fine.

The funny thing is that it is a total coincident I will be starting working for a company in the sport retail business at the same time I have started my new project running the NY Marathon…

Now I hope I will be able to “relax” a bit and focus more on the bloggs, books, apps and other LCHF-related things.

For dinner tonight I used som “leftovers” from yesterday so the dish I made was a bit messy… A nice entrecote with creamy mushrooms, broccoli and sauce bearnaise…

Eventfull day

I had a quite bas night of sleep today. I was a bit nervous for things to come during the day… The sleep quality was only 52%

14 1117-TommyTappar -20141117-00001IMG_9938

Before I started the day I took a medium walk trying to relax…

I went out for lunch with some of my colleagues and we went to the indian place again…

14 1117-TommyTappar -20141117-00003IMG_9940

After a really intense day (for the brain anyway) I finally came home and made dinner. I tried a recipe for the magazine and the dish was really nice even thou it looks really boring… Entrecote, cauliflower and red wine sauce.

14 1117-TommyTappar -20141117-00023IMG_9960

To celebrate the result of the days event I drank the rest of the wine from the small bottle I bought for the sauce.

Tomorrow I might announce what the fuzz was all about…

The intakes today went quite high…

Two walks today

Today I was planning on going for a walk and then work a bit at the office. I started the day in the bathroom cutting my hair with my trimmer. In the middle of the cutting the darn machine broke… So I had to go to the office with a not so pretty uneven display of weird hair… It is a good thing its cold so I had some headwear on… The walk was not that long…

Skärmavbild 2014-11-16 kl. 22.36.48

When I worked a bit I looked at my strange hair cut and decided I needed to do something about it so I googled for a  new trimmer and went for a long walk to get it at the malls on the outskirts of town.

Skärmavbild 2014-11-16 kl. 22.47.46

When I finally got home I fixed the hair and went for dinner with my family at a nice restaurant in the neighbor city of Linköping.

For starter I had raw tuna… Really nice! Low on carbs and fat…

14 1116-TommyTappar -20141116-00019IMG_9925

For main (or secondi) I had saltimbocca with butter. To ad some more butter I actually got some from my mother who didn’t want all of hers…

14 1116-TommyTappar -20141116-00024IMG_9930

No dessert but as usual a double espresso. Nope, I did not eat the chocolate… (but mom did…) :-)

I also try to show my weight sometimes. The trend is not very nice… It is going up. I hope my new project will take care of this…

During the whole day when I was away my next recipe for the magazine was cooking at home…

Increasing pace a bit

After yet another long day of gaming…

14 1115-TommyTappar -15112014-IMG_9897

…at the store I got home and made dinner.

14 1115-TommyTappar -15112014-IMG_9900

Pork chops and cream-cheese spinach. 70 g of fresh spinach, 1 dl double cream and 100 g of cheddar cheese. I had some extra cheese during the evening so the proteins went upp a bit too much…

Skärmavbild 2014-11-15 kl. 22.15.13

Before I went to the store I took a short walk around “my” park. I am trying to step up the pace a bit sometimes. I am not really sure what a good pace really are when walking. But I am not normally under 10 minuter per KM.

A couple of months ago I had cheek from beef to eat and yesterday I found pork cheek from the same brand.

14 1114-TommyTappar -20141114-00002IMG_9875

The cheek is really tender and I just fried some muchrooms and onions. Sliced the cheek and let it simmer a while. To get the fight up a bit I made a simple butter with only some extra salt and black pepper.

Todays walkabout was over 5KM. I might take a break from walking tomorrow. I have slept quite bad for a couple of days so I need some rest.

When I went out for a drive to the store I saw my dream car in front of me at the lights… I really love that car…
