Today was lots of fun. We slept in and had pancakes then got ready to go horseback riding! We went to Susanna’s friends house where we met Dave and… Um… I forgot. Susanna, what was the name of the other horse??
After riding, we went grocery shopping. I stoked up on my Swedish chocolate and got some groceries because I made dinner tonight! We had Susanna’s friend Johanna and her dad Matz over for dinner as well. I made a curry quinoa and some grilled veggie skewers (yes, simple but good enough) and we had grilled halumi cheese and guacamole and corn cobs. During dinner I was asked if this was a typical American meal. I said no, ha. They (Johanna and Matz mainly) said when they heard I was cooking they were wondering what kind of food the American girl was going to cook. Apparently they were expecting hot dogs and friend chicken and the likes. I shot down that stereotype pretty quickly. Dinner was great though, especially since we used fresh carrots and tomatoes and green beans and garlic from their garden. I love it 🙂
after dinner we played a game called Kubb. It was pretty intense… Maybe just because the parents were all about winning… But tons of fun, lots of laughter. I would explain more detail but I’m trying to get some blog entries done while I sit in the airport waiting for my flight to Dublin.
Another great day in the books.
