Kungsparken, a central park in Gothenburg.
The latest week has been really hot here in Sweden. I only have two more weeks to my vacation, but I still decided to take a day off yesterday. My thoughts are with all people in London. Luckily Fredrik has been in Gothenburg all week, even if he now has moved home he works at the british EA office every second or third week and works from home rest of the time.
As I said, all week has been hot and sunny so I decided to interrupt Fredrik’s work for a picnic in one of Gothenburg’s central parks. After reading Anne’s and Johanna’s blogs about the Euro-food bloggers picnic I really wanted to try Johanna’s pastami bagels and the Jägerwecken. As most people know, I’m usually a vegeterian. Some years ago I also ate chicken, until I got ill. The last months I’ve had a craving for chicken again, so for Fredrik I made a bagel with Pastrami and for myself I used chili flavoured chicken breast (I always call it chicken ham :-) from Swedish company Kronfågel that claims that their chicken are tested for Campylobacterias. In the Jägerwecken I used Swedish Prästost and also smoked cheese, and substituted the ham with the above chicken. The result was delicious! I decreased the amount of gherkins in both recipes as I’m not so fond of them. The bagel mayonnaise was perfect and we liked it a lot, we will definately do it more times! To the picnic I also made a Zucchini Frittata with Sardelles, found in the Swedish magazine “Allt om mat”. For recipe, see below. The picnic was really perfect and we had a great time. The food was delicious!

4 Sardelle fillets
2 deciliters grated Zucchini
1 tbsp fresh Thyme
1 tbsp butter
Beat the eggs, chop the sardelles and the onion. Mix the onion, sardelles and zucchini with the eggs. Season with pepper and thyme. Fry the omelette in a buttered pan until it’s starting to stiffen. Turn it with the help of a lid and fry the other side. Slice the frittata and serve it in pieces.
