Today it’s a “bank holiday” (kind of…) in Sweden. This special Midsummer nights eve calls for some traditional food.
We had a family dinner at my parents house and as usual they had prepared really good food for us.
For lunch we got new potatoes, herring, sour-cream, butter and chives.
To the afternoon drinks and we had some small dishes…
…and a blind test of roe. Real Swedish roe from Kalix, Some American roe and a Swedish cheaper variant. It was easy to pick the Real Kalix roe…
For dinner we had pork loin with a really nice celery-butter. In a couple of days I will do this myself and share the recipes.
For dessert it is tradition to eat strawberries so I had some (maybe a bit to many of them…). During the evening I also ate some peanuts even thou I “shouldn’t”. To the strawberries a nice chèvre cheese was served. Much nicer than cream.
The carbs went up to a really “high” 31 grams. Highest in a very long time.
