week 5 / all about the beets

We had a beet-risotto on Sunday. I was skeptical, and it wasn’t my choice, but boy was it delicious!

This week was the Swedish Championships in cross-country skiing. Not something I normally watch, but my mom sent the message “it’s in Sundsvall! if you tune in you can see fairy-tale like scenery”. So I did, and indeed it was. So much snow! Also, having grown up in Sweden, this is some weird comfort thing for me – having the TV on in the background in the weekend, showing skiing (cross-country or downhill). It almost brings me back to lazy Sundays spent at my grandparents.

  1. Fairytale?? Are we even in the same region?? It’s a goddamn nightmare. I do genuinely wonder if this isn’t hell. And HOW do we get another winter like this?? They’re not supposed to happen in a row. Iofs har vi the added bonus of dagar då det inte snöar så är det -20 (by which I mean, det känns som -20, har slutat gå på den faktiska temperaturen eftersom det hjälper mig exakt 0% när jag ska till jobbet, jag struntar väl i om det är -13 om det känns som -18??)

    Och skeptisk till rödbetor, you mad! 😉


    1. Hahaha. Det är ju fiiiint. (Tycker mamma också, trots att hon bott hela sitt liv där uppe.) Är det överfrusna helvetet du menar då? 😛

      Nej nej inte skeptisk till rödbetorna i sig, men till påhittet rödbetsrisotto! Tyckte inte det lät frestande ö.h.t., men hade uppenbarligen väldigt fel!
