Grilled “Falukorv” with Carmalized Sweet Chilli Carrot Mash
After a bit back slash at the hospital – my right leg is back to where it was in October last year – but I haven’t used the pretty support tights during the warm period of 12 days we had in May – and the last pair I got wasn’t a good fit neither, so I haven’t been a good girl and worn them so much as I should.
They are now ordering a thinner tights to my legs measure (tailor made tights) and I have promised that if I don’t use the tights during the days under my holiday, will I use them during night. There is no way I can wear them when it’s hot summer – at least what I hope for over in Chicago and Canada. ONLY 25 days left now.
So I was a bit down on Monday coming home from Lund and yesterday I treated myself with a bit of shopping; a nice comfortable sandals made for walking in big cities … have problems with my feet’s too – they are numb and they hurt very quickly from walking. Hard to find good shoes and doesn’t look like barn doors and to make things worst do I need UK/EU8 = US10. Found a pair – rather feminine, made in Germany. Here they are (Victoria) – and it’s like walking on clouds for 650SEK/£59.00/€72.30/$90.00
I also bought a trendy pair of Polaroid Suncover – what a fantastic product. Don’t need glasses more then for reading and close up – and I need glasses when using the camera. So those sunglasses goes just on top of my glasses and they cover completely both glasses and frame. This is the model I bought for 495SEK/£44.65/€55.00/$68.50
So I felt a bit after that spread – then it was down to dinner and leftovers again. Nothing exciting what so ever – had some “Falukorv” in the freezer, carrot, potatoes, sweet chili sauce and I shopped some fresh broccoli. Caramelized Sweet Chili Mash is one of my favorite mashes.
“Falukorv” is the most popular sausage in Sweden and we learn to love it as kids – not much flavor to it – but it’s one of our national treasures. 1890 was it made the first time and in 1973 the name “Falukorv” was protected – plus in 2001 it also got protected in EU. It’s a slightly smoked cooked pork and beef sausage, can be eating cold too without any perpetration. Falu – stands for the place where it original was made – Falun is the name of the town. Korv means sausage. The thing is that in the old days had the houses in Falun in county Dalarna – a special red color and the “Falukorven” has a red “skin”.
“Laws are like sausages.
It’s better not to see how they are made.”
