Swedish cuisine, also known as husmanskost, is very easy but can taste taste quite bland if you do not prepare the dishes correctly.
Although I love husmanskost (especially the modern twists to classic Swedish dishes), I have never prepared a Swedish dish in my life.
Until the end of July 2013, I will master three classic Swedish dishes.
First up: Swedish meatballs, potato mash, lingon berries and cream sauce. Because I forgot to buy soy sauce, I will skip cream sauce today and remake the dish in a few days when I have all ingredients in the kitchen.
In case I did not write about this earlier: I bought a membership at Citybikes (which includes a new helmet and insurance).
For those of you who live in Stockholm, like to bike whenever without having to plan ahead, www.citybikes.se is the option for you.
With a new helmet delivered to your addres, an insurance and a membership that gives you unlimited use of their bikes between April 01 to Oct 31, you only have to cough up 325 SEK. Unbeatable price.
I haven’t bought a bike yet. Instead, I bought myself a card for borrowing bikes from Stockholm City for the entire spring/summer season (April 01 – October 31). With helmet and insurance, it only cost me 325 SEK, and I don’t have to plan ahead. When I feel like biking, I’ll just pick up a bike in town and leave it at one of the other stations when I am done.
My plan is to bike from work 2-3 times per week (at least).
If you are interested in borrowing/renting these bikes in Stockholm City, please visit citybikes.se (I’m not endorsed by the website although it sounds like it).
