Delicious! Here in Sweden, vegetarian food has just exploded during the last 15 years. I first started experimenting being a vegetarian when I was 16 (2006) and even though there’s been periods (especially when I lived in Seoul because they put meat in everything and don’t have the same supply as in Sweden) when I ate some meat, I’ve seen how our vegetarian food market has changed a lot. Which is great! When I first started, there were not as many products that there is today… Even though it’s nice that there are vegetarian options of meat (like sausage), I doubt it’s very healthy to eat this food every day as it might contain (depending on the brand and product) lots of trash. Oh well…
In Sweden, we have many days were we celebrate different food. For example the Fat Tueday (Fettisdagen), is when we eat a semla (below), and this year we celebrate it the 16th of February. A few decades ago, if you wanted to upset the Swedes you would eat a semla weeks before the actual date (just like I did yesterday). There were even people who wanted to forbid bakeries to sell these buns before the actual date it was celebrated (the date changes every year)! It still upsets some today… But I just cannot help myself (like most people, I guess).
Anyway, the semla is simply a bun with whipped cream and almond paste. January isn’t over yet but I’ve already managed to eat three of these. You can’t stop me.
Wiener schnitzel with Béarnaise sauce, at the Edelweiss restaurang in my town (Helsingborg). The meat was alright but the french fries were gone in no time. I’m 99% vegetarian, and the reason for that is that I can’t eat meat that taste too much meat. I think it has to do with my Asperger’s, I’m extremely picky with food and feel easily disgusted by meat (and have been for my entire life actually). But, if there’s meat that doesn’t taste that much or is “covered” like this, there’s a high possibility that I can eat it. Anyway! My brother laughed at the beer menu because there was this beer called Pfungstädter (it sounds like “pung” in Swedish which means scrotum, very funny indeed (not)) so I had to get that… 🙄
Meat. People probably find this ironic. I sometimes eat meat but still try so hard not to buy beauty products that have been tested on animals. I’m not a good human.
I love taking pictures of food. Also, it’s really smart if you want to submit reviews of the restaurants later!
Here comes a lot of pictures of food I’ve eaten (and that I want to eat now again after looking at the pictures once more)…
Today we were at a Shrimps’ galore at Mölleexpressen in town. As soon as the sun set it got cold, but at least it wasn’t windy at all.
Lemon beer. Normal beer, but with a slice of lemon floating on the top. Tasted like beer, though.
