Lovely Weekend

Everyone have a good Easter/Passover weekend? I certainly did.  Some good food, friends, walks in the city, pillow fights.  I’ll show you!

And so it begins – the rotation of matzah breakfasts.  Well, not every day, since fruit and green smoothies are still kosher for passover.  Lucky for me, lax was on sale!  I had half a piece with creamy goat cheese and lax, half with creamy goat cheese and jam.  Cream cheese and jam is a childhood favorite.  Seriously, try it!

I made a lovely / refreshing bean salad.  Right now I’m too lazy to share a proper recipe.  Sorry ( but not really…)!

On my active rest day I decided to walk from my place to Stockholm’s city center – about an hour.  This weather is slightly deceiving, though, it was chilly and super windy!

Stockholm has lots of hills.  Made of these rocks.  It’s really cool!

The reason I went to the city – to watch Stockholm’s participants in the international pillow fight!  The turnout was not nearly as impressive as NYC’s , but was still quite fun to watch.

When I got home that evening though, I was chilled to the bone, felt like crap, and could not stop sneezing!  I spent the evening curled up sipping tea, and really hoping that it would pass the next day, since I was planning to run in the morning.  Nope! Same thing happened all day, which led to me taking a second rest day in a row (gah!) and spending another night curled up sipping tea and hot water with honey and lemon.

Luckily I felt a million times better today, and got in a good 4.5 mile run this morning!

Going back to the weekend – Easter brunch with friends! Tons of good food, traditions from at least 5 different countries, and no shortage of chocolate.

This is some traditional Swedish thing they drink at Easter (Påsk = Easter, in Swedish).  It tasted like a weird mix of coke and ice tea.  It was weird.   That is all.

You like my original post title? I’m feeling a little less than creative today.  If you couldn’t tell.

What did you do this Easter weekend?

Ever participated in International Pillow Fight day?
