The new homework is to take 3-5 photos and present “my Stockholm”, but what is my Stockholm. I do not know, yet. Also, I can not say I want to go out to take photos due to the weather.
But what is Stockholm for me?
- Espresso house
- My family
- My apartment
- Few people
We are not allowed to take photos on the city hall, because we have seen photos on the City hall too many times.
Yesterday, I met up a friend and we took a walk to Slussen and then headed home to cook and bake.
For dinner we made dumplings (yea, I am very weak for dumplings) then we made rhubarb pie. The rhubarbs for this year are incredible.
I know, the color is not right on the photo, but I can not really change.. But the dough is easy to make.
- 2 dl floor
- 100 g of butter
- 1 tablespoon of suggar
Mix everything with your fingers and then spread the dough over the rhubarbs, appels or anything form of fruits. The oven tempratur is 225 degreese and let the pie be in the oven for 30 mintues.
A café in Sweden has to have chocolate balls to be able to call them a café. At least, that is what I think. Therefore, at the café I am working at, whenever we get time and has the ingrediance we bake. We bake, chocolate balls, muffins, small cookies and much more. Anything which works well with a cup of coffee. Chocolate balls are so easy to make and take no time. Also, everyone knows how chocolate balls taste like therefore they are safe card.
Therefore, when we bake chocolate balls, we use a whole packaged of oat (1,5 kg) and may be 20 balls…. As you can hear, our chocolate balls are huge.
Next Friday is midsummer and my friend and I are going to Skansen to celebrate midsummer. I have not celebrated midsummer for the last 4 years due to trips, work and so on. But, this year I have, my friend from Germany really want me to show her a typical midsummer in Sweden. So, the perfect place is Skansen.
For lunch we are going to have picnic at Skansen and I have bought juice from Smaka på Stockholm. The red one is with chili, cranberry and pomegranate. while the yellow one is made of chili, lime and ginger. My friend and I tough the juices tasted good and the juices burns a little bit to be more like the burning feeling from alcohol.
So let us hope this midsummer will have good weather!
Yesterday I made finally a pie with our fresh rhubarbs. Most likely the pie is made of 4 huge rhubarbs. The recipe is extremely simple and takes maybe only 40 minutes to make. The filling can be with any sort of berries or fruits the only thing which need to be added with the fruits/berries is sugar.
- 2 dl of flour
- 100 gram of butter
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
Mix everything in a bowl with the fingers and put in the refrigerator while preparing the fillings in a buttery tin. Then when the filling done just add the dough and put the tin in the oven for 30 minutes in 225 degrees.
Then the pie look like this, and I needed to make the make a extra batch with half of every ingrediance to be able to cover the rhubarbs.
I have not seen our rhubarbs this big before. They are huge.
So, today I am making a rhubarb pie with our own fresh rhubarbs. How can I not bake a rhubarb pie?
Like, most likely I won’t eat it, but I do love baking.
I am over 170 cm tall so you might understand how long the rhubarbs are. also, I have to point out, I am in gym clothes and normally I do not wear over size t-shirts besides in the gym.
