Dreaming of summer; archipelago mackerel


It’s only November but I’m already dreaming about summer. Despite the fact that I really look forward to our upcoming New York trip I almost regret not booking a beach vacation instead. But only almost :-)

The above photo was taken at my parents in law’s house on the west coast of Sweden. I love their terrace which is facing the sea. I can sit there for hours watching the boats go by while the sea gulls are flying around. The dish on the photo is a very tasty and easy to make mackerel. You start with frying fresh mackerel fillets, then you add cream and parsley and let it simmer. Salt and pepper, and serve with boiled summer potatoes. Swedish summer in a nutshell!


The amazing view from their balcony.

    Uroczy, ponadczasowy widok. Kiedy wyglądam przez okno i patrzę na termometr (1 stopień C!), chciałabym przenieść się na taką łódkę chociaż na godzinę. Wiele bym dziś za to dała.
    Ciepłe serdeczności, Dagmaro.

    I love the west coast of Sweden. Just stunning. I had the best mackerel in Seattle and cant find it fresh here at all. Wish you were coming to the Mid West too.
