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?
