It has been a busy but fun week. I invited Carrie to sleep over on the Kristi Himmelsfärd day on Thursday. We had a great time chatting,cooking & eating together.It´s so much nicer to have someone on the same frequency to share food from hometown. Carrie like to try my chicken rice so I made her my specialty . She was so pleased with my chicken rice, I heard a hundred times compliments about the rice & it´s still ringing in my head. Carrie was also carving of Otak after she saw the pictures in my previous article so I made some to satisfy her. This time I used white frozen fish, I think I should had squeezed out ALL the water trapped in the fish before I put them in the blender. The paste was too watery & I did´nt had enough salt!
Carrie introduced me to one of her Japanese friend Celia & Stefan who live 2km from my place. Celia had just given birth to her second baby Maya (who´s now one month old) & her parent were in Sweden to help her out with baby sitting. The old couple has been here for coming 3 months & will be going back to Brazil next Friday.
Celia Mum made quite a few delicious Japanese dishes like stuff omelet, stir fried cabbage with garlic,barbecued pork, and traditional caramel pudding as dessert. The food & dessert was fantastic & we were loaded with joy! I like Celia & her family very much so I invited them over to my place for lunch the next day. I was surprise that our Japanese like the Otak very much (even though it was watery & unsalted), the chicken rice were gone the first 15 mins, the stir fried beef & aubergine was one of the favourite, the barbecue pork (they love the ginger marinate) like many Japanese,they always shown awful lots of appreciations irregardless of whether the food is nice or not. Oliver (Celia´s 2 years old son) was holding his chicken drumstick like professional,licked round his tiny fingers & said "Hummmm" while eating, his Mum told me he was enjoying the food very much!
In the evening, we saw 2 hedgehog trying to pair. They sounded like ice-cream machine during mating, it was so funny!
Nelina had a shopping voucher as birthday present so I brought her shopping in town. She brought a pair of bermudas, hair color lotions and a big soft ice-cream. I am glad that she is satisfied with the things she brought. When we came home, I thought I try baking pizza on a hot stone over a grill.It works! Nelina & Mattias absolutely love those pizza & hope to bake more pizza in the near future. As for me, Pizza is not my favourite, I can only eat 1 hand size but perhaps more if the dough is made out of healthier flour.
We went to watch a mid-night concert at the church in town right after Robinson.
God grace! This gospel group are so professional & we had a great time swinging & clapping! I used to sing in the gospel group while living in Umeå, I would love to sing again if I have the time. May be in the autumn.

Laleh..Some die young
