hot potato salad and mustard baked trout

well hello! long time no speak. how are you all?

it's taken a long time for me to get back into the swing of things after the amazing swedish feast. we've been eating leftovers for the past two weeks, and i was recently able to share some of my creations with farmor, which she really enjoyed! this past weekend i also got to take a peek inside one of her first swedish cookbooks (kokbok's!) which was really interesting, and i might just be able to attempt some of the recipes from it some day - perhaps i might even be able to persuade my lovely farmor to come on camera for you all to meet!

anyway, food has become interesting recently as my brother is now home, which means that there's more meat and carbs in the house, and fresh fruit disappears very rapidly...we'll just have to wait to see how it works out, but it's going to take some adjusting that's for sure.

without further ado, here's my latest eats:

we had a couple of friends round one sunny sunday afternoon after church for a little hot potato salad, much enjoyed by everyone - especially when followed by a stroll down a very pretty english bridleway

hot potato salad is one of the best inventions ever - boil some new potatoes, fry some chicken strips and bacon pieces, put it all together in a big bowl with lots of spinach, olive oil and wholegrain mustard - enjoy!

stir fries should be interesting, so boiling some sweet potatoes before frying, adding lots of interesting veg, including chard, kale, celery and shallots to the pan is guaranteed to bring you out of any stirfry rut

raspberry smoothies - mmmm, summer in a glass

porridge with sliced banana, flaxseed and honey = ultimate

we've really been enjoying our mustard, and one of the best ways to use it up is as a dressing for baked fish, just mix it with a little olive oil and lemon juice before putting in the oven for 5 ish mins

sardines on toast is a great way to get fish into your diet, and having it with a massive salad is great on summer days as well as balancing the whole meal out nutritionally

french toast is beautiful, and surprisingly quick and low carb, in fact it's all the very best things a breakfast should be...
