Swedish Lunch

I am happy, all my boxes arrived yesterday, all intact. So I spent yesterday unpacking most of my stuff.  I now have my beloved cook books, dvds and my XBOX 360!

If you have found this blog because you are looking for a company that deals with moving boxes to Sweden (bloody good SEO on my part if you have!) then I really recommend speaking with Paul Gandy at wordwide freight on freephone:  0800 0188138

He was really helpful and it was an easy process.

Tonight is a big night as I start my classes in Swedish, I am armed with my textbooks, workbooks, pencils, writing pads all I need now is my Spiderman sandwich box and it will be like my old school days. I am excited but a little nervous. It’s the whole social thing of meeting new people, I do it for  a living but I find the older I get the harder this is in a social environment.

I have noticed that the Swedes like to take a hot meal at lunch. Many of them take a hearty lunch and eat light at dinner. I know thats better for you but cant see myself doing that. I will fall asleep at my desk!

Its amazing how many places there are to eat near the office, everything from Sushi to Subway. All the restaurants offer you a lunch menu which is very good value, it usually includes soup, bread, a salad bar and a main dish, no Burleigh Arms Super Brunch from what I can see though!

I ignored the sit down meal offers and wound up at Sandys, not a bad little eating place, they do wraps and sandwiches some of which are low GI. I went for the Thai Chicken, very nice!

I am so pleased my cookbooks are here as I have been eating quite badly since I got here. Not helped by the fact I have discovered the delicious dill crisps!!

Anyway todays Swedish word of the day is ‘dägens rett’ which means daily dish, this is the value for money option at lunch time.
