5 PM picnic on the floor

Today is a happy day!
Last night (( at 2:46 am to be precise )) I finally got the letter I've been waiting years to get.
It was an acceptance letter from Roskilde University, that said that I had been offered a place at the International Bachelor Program in Humanities starting this Fall.
By September 1st, I'll be matriculating in House 3.1.1 and I can finally call myself an official RUC (( Roskilde Uni )) student!

This is cause for celebration!
It's raining out today, so instead I'm having a picnic on the floor of my apartment.

Congratulations to all of the other happy 
 soon-to-be UNI students out there!

Four things right now

This happy hot air balloon just appeared out of nothing

I bought some new plates today, and I'm still admiring them

A good cuppa joe is perfect any time of the day

I've lined my latest purchases up as decorative accessories in the apartment. 
Can't wait to put a little colour in my style!

Summer Vibes

Hiyah all, how are y'all enjoying this beautiful Summer?

Well well well, I had vowed to blog oh so much more after exams and graduating, but that didn't quite pan out, right-o? Yes-o! So I thought it was time for a new update and what I've been up to lately.

Well, right now I'm sitting outside in the gorgeous green garden of my Swedish Paradise. Yes, I've been here for a couple of weeks now, and since I'm going home tomorrow, I thought it would be nice with the annual "Swedish Summer Vacation" post.
I'm here with my folks, and mostly we've been enjoying the weather, sitting outside in the garden and living it up. We've made a couple of appearances out in the real world, but mostly I've been enjoying my Swedish Paradise oh so much.

Here are some pictures of my past two weeks here:

The standard shot of our beautiful old Swedish house. 
I just love this place; Summer or Winter, this place is gorgeous and cozy...

... As is the garden!
Look at these beautiful flowers, they're called "Lupiner" in Swedish and are here every Summer.

My mum is like a magnet for butterflies! ...

... This one actually landed on her hand and didn't move for 30 minutes!

Cantarella mushrooms are like a secret trade up here. 
They're pretty hard to find; you have to walk around in the forest for hours before finding a spot with  just five. If you find a Cantarella mushroom spot, you keep it a secret! And since we don't have a spot, we cheated and bought ours in town. 

Wednesday we drove the 100 kilometres to Öland. Öland is a long island on the east coast near Skåne, and it's the hangout spot for Swedish celebs - oh, and thousands of campers! I didn't spot any celebs, but I counted 164 motor homes! We drove and drove and drove to find a quiet place to eat our picnic dinner, and after 2 hours we finally found a fairly secluded stone beach with almost no people. It was a fantastic place!

On Thursday we visited the city of Oskarshamn. It's a beautiful city known for it's harbour and Nuclear Plant. Sounds heavy, but we actually took a tour of the plant. They weren't trying to persuade you to take a stance on the Good vs. Bad things about Nuclear Plants, but instead they showed us how they dispose of the waste. They bury it in huge metal tombs 500 meters under the ground. I actually got to go 500 meters under the ground, and it was a pretty interesting day.

In Oskarshamn we visited Sweden's longest bench. Not the wow-factor it sounds like (( haha )) but it was actually a really pretty spot with really pretty and well-kept flowers.

And this is (( part of )) the bench.

And the last couple of days we've just been home, grilling' and chill in' ...

... And eating delicious dinners!

Cheesy stuffed bell peppers with mushroom and chilli

Evenin' all - how's it hanging?

I thought I'd bring you one of my favourite "I want something delicious to eat, but I don have time or money for it" recipes.
I love stuffed bell peppers - the peppers themselves are cheap, and if you're serving for two, you only need about two to four peppers.
For stuffing - well, that's pretty much up to you! I don't eat meat, but if you like it, it's easy as well - only takes a little bit longer.

However, I like them "all vegetable" so what I do is stuff them with mushrooms, a little bit of chilli and of course, the "magic ingredient" : Cheese!
Here's what you need:

  • 2-4 bell peppers (any colour will do)
  • 6-8 mushrooms
  • chilli - as much or little as you want
  • grated cheese - cheddar or pizza topping is perfect!
Cut the peppers in half - remember to leave the stalk, or else it won't work as a "bowl" for the other ingredients.
Cut the mushrooms into small pieces as well as the chilli and add it to the hollow pepper.
Add a little bit of cheese and bake in the oven for 15 minutes on 400 F ((or 200 C)). Then take them out and add more cheese - as much or as little as you want - and bake for further 10 minutes.

Take them out of the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes before serving.
They work great both as an appetizer or an actual meal. 

Have fun cooking and enjoy your this beautiful summers evening
