Yes Sweden this time of the year is fifty shades of grey thats why this post will be about weekend treats to bring some sunshine it to ones life until spring and new sneakers arrives!!
EAT LONG BREAKFAST
Have to much wine sleep for to long and make breakfast in bed no need to make something fancy just something you really like me Im not much for pretty akacia bowls with rainbow colored lines of seeds and dried fruits no Im more of a carbs and melt cheese kind of a girl this one is a sourdough bun that i found in the freezer and fried in butter leftover aged cheese onion pickled in red beet because my love is the king of pickles roasted sesam seeds because I always have roasted seeds on nuts on everything to get some crunch bengal mango chutney to get it kickin strong coffee and your ready!!
GET FRESH FLOWERS
Nothing makes me happier than seeing things grow or evolve from one day to another the elusiveness of life gets me everytime right now Im so in love with the vase we bought in Marocko that are constantly filled with branches of cherry from As grandmothers garden!! Fresh flower might feel expensive but really they are so worth one or two beers nothing feels more luxurious than bringing home a bouquet of flowers in your home before the weekend!!
SPEND TO MUCH TIME AT A CAFE
The sound of humming coffee machines the smell of butter and lighted candles everywhere bring someone you love or your best book and just chillax with a sinful cake and a oatly cappu with some fancy as fuck milk art on it you deserve it!!
TAKE HOME FOOD
The best thing with being surrounded with places and people that makes kick ass food is that you dont have to cook everything all the time for your self right?! Our local pizzeria is THE PIZZERIA and these pizza biancas with gorgonzola and pear and scampi, moules and tuna is THE PIZZAS!!
I barely never eat or make dessert so that why its feel like real festive to now and then make or buy something really pretty to finish of the dinner with and yes a pink valentines semla might feel a little bit heavy after a full dinner but since Im not much for fresh dessert I dont care much rather feel like pretty please with cream on top!!
VISIT A RESTAURANT YOU LONGED FOR
For me its all about the contrast cooking a lot of cheap plant based food treasuring leftovers eat a lot of low key street food and then on special occasion go to a fancy restaurant that I really want to visit drink bubbles and eat exactly what I want to last time we visited amazing Mutantur and had this tartar and loads of other treats!!
COOK SOMETHING FOR YOUR SELF
Yes ofc you can cook something for or with someone you like as well but just having the time to go to the market buy everything that looks good put on some good music maybe pour a glas of half cheap wine and cook helluva dinner one of my fav when I get the chance to make whatever I want is pizza bianca with smetana potatoes red onion roe dill black pepper and lemon with that (although mostly before because the glass of wine before dinner is my absolute fav glass of wine) I drink dry bubbles or buttery white!!
DO SOMETHING SPECIAL TOGETHER WITH SOMEONE DEAR
Treating someone you love I think is one of the most precious thing you can do with your time since time is the thing we got least of in our busy everyday life what you wanna do is ofc very personal maybe you wanna go for a cosy brunch maybe you wanna go to a spa maybe you wanna take a long walk in the woods maybe you wanna buy take home thai and eat in the sofa treating yourself and people around you is all about feeling what your body and mind need and want to do so listen to yourself please anyways what we did last weekend was to spend all Sunday afternoon on Grand Hotels afternoon tea munching English delis drinking tea and sipping champagne and it was so very special!!
NOW GO GIVE YOURSELF HELLUVA WEEKEND KIDS PUSS!!
