I’m an adult

Taco Bell does not exist in Sweden. Therefore, on our recent trip to Barcelona, I really wanted to go to one since I haven’t eaten there for 3 years.

When I was a kid, I was allowed to get a beef burrito and a small order of nachos.

Now I’m an adult and I decide for myself. So I got a beef burrito and a LARGE order of nachos.

Cheesus Crust Superstar

This is an actual ad from Pizza Hut in the newspaper in Stockholm. I think it’s funny but I wonder how well it would go over in the U.S.?

I’m interested to see if this is going to go the religious way in further ads or the musical way. I’m waiting for “Red Sauce Story,” “The Sound of Meatballs,” “Sweeny Todd’s Mystery Meat Pizza” (wait, that last one might not work).



Snack time in Texas

Bacon-wrapped jalapenos stuffed with cheese. Just one of the many reasons I gained 5 pounds on our trip.


Tag lines

While pre-publishing a post for next week (I’ll be on vacation) about politics and Europe, I was suggested certain tags for my post in order to publicize it. I’m still trying to figure out why the tagging suggestions were America, beer and cheese.

Not that I’m complaining, I’m just not sure what that has to do with politics and Europe. Unless of course the underlying message is, “Hey man, just come to America, eat cheese, drink beer and forget about your problems.”

I suppose that’s good political policy as well.

Am I too cynical?

I have to read food news for my job. The headline for one said, “Make your own cheese with only 2 ingredients!”

I do that all the time. Milk and laziness.  Done.


Make your own cheese!

This headline was in the Swedish paper this weekend.  It says, “New trend: Make your own cheese in the fridge!”

I think this child has captured my thoughts exactly on this new trend.

Cheese product

Tried to take Velveeta cheese on an airplane.

Got pulled over by security.

Velveeta is neither a solid or a liquid.  It is not cheese, but a cheese product.

Once I explained that it’s yellow gold over in Sweden and I needed it to make rotel dip, the fellow Texan security guard let me through with it.



It’s funny to me, as a Texan, that Swedish children eat caviar in squeeze tubes.  Caviar was always an expensive delicacy when I was growing up, but over here it’s quite common for a breakfast snack on toast.

Of course, it’s mainly adults that eat the pure caviar.  The children like to squeeze it out of tubes mixed with cheese (horrible, I know).

Our children begged for this on their toast the last time my husband took them to the grocery store.  What he forgot to do was to ask them if they had any idea what caviar is.

They did not.

So now the staff fridge at my workplace will be getting a fresh tube of caviar and cheese so everyone can put it on their toast in the morning.

Lesson – Half Texan kids and caviar don’t mix.
