Smokey goodness!

IMAG4536Feels like it was Easter yesterday but now it was a few weeks ago. Easter is always exciting on the island though. We had Airbnb guests staying upstairs and brought them along to the fire. This year we decided to break our tradition to go see the largest fire on Hönö. Since we moved here we have every year gone to “Hea”, after all the stories we heard about Hönö “röd” with fights, burning wheels rolling down the mountain and such we’ve chosen to take the kids to the more family friendly fire. So I must say I had some butterflies in my belly this year but turned out it was completely unnecessary. There were loads of people, adults, youngsters and children but most of them very well behaved. https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fsarah.lycksten%2Fvideos%2Fvb.651592990%2F10153638295007991%2F%3Ftype%3D3&show_text=0&width=560” target=”_blank”>Here’s a little video taken just after the fire was lit. This year the council had gone out with warnings saying that everyone starting a fire had to have a permit and if they found oil, tires or other things apart from Christmas trees they would take the fires down. Plus they said there would be more police on the Island than had ever been(to this my son replied -what, like three?). We had a nice time but next year we’ll be back at Hea, it felt more like “our” fire. We didn’t have any more guests over Easter, usually we have a big bash with new and old friends but this year apart from the airbnb’ers it was just the family. One week earlier I happened by the food shop on the next island and found them selling really nice pigs meat, perfect for bacon. So I bought some for my husband, he salted it, I rubbed and massaged it every day and Easter eve he smoked it together with some salmon. Homemade bacon, we’ve wanted to try that for ages. It was so awesome! So easy and so much flavour. Since Easter days have sped up. To the point that I’ve lost track of the days. I did get really enjoyed and sent an email to complaining about not having received my morning newspaper for two days. When they replied saying that according to their records I only have a weekend subscription I thought I would sink through the floor. This was on a Wednesday and I had worked over the weekend and because the kids had Easter holiday I thought it was the weekend…
