I know it’s been quiet here for a while, but I’m here. First I worked in Gothenburg for a few days, then our internet at home was down for a long time and finally last week I had a really bad stomach flu. I still feel a bit sick, but I’m much better. Due to the flu I havn’t cooked nor actually eaten much. But luckily for me and you I have a large back log with photos and recipes which I need to post before I forget the details :-)
When I was in Gothenburg for work I stayed a few days extra just to visit my family. When I travelled back to Stockholm I had an extra suitcase due to all food that my dear mother had packed for me. She made tons of Polish pierogi which now lays in our freezer and which we eat with reverence. My mother also packed some cans of sweetened condensed milk for baking and a lot of other food. After my check-in at the airport, including the extra suitcase of food only, I went to the security check where I had to take of my shoes which caused beeping. After finally getting through the security I suddenly heard my name in the loudspeakers; I was asked to contact the information desk. So I had to go back all the way and I was feeling a bit nervous as I didn’t know what was going on. After being shunted back and forth between the airport staff I finally ended up by my suitcase, the one with food which I had checked in. “-We believe that you have paint cans in your suitcase and they are not allowed”. I never blush, but I think that I actually did this time when trying to explain that it was milk… I had to unpack my suitcase and show the labels on the milk cans which the staff carefully read. They just laughed and said that it was OK, then I had to run back to the security check, take off my shoes again and then I was finally on my way to the gate. Both me and the milk arrived safely in Stockholm, and the pierogi as well.
