My cousin in Sweden sent me a photo of the traditional egg and shrimp and red onion birthday cake.
Back in the new country, I made up a very good summer drink:
Fill a pitcher with vodka or gin
Cut up a cucumber and toss it in
Mash up some fresh basil and/or mint
Add lemon and lime juice (fresh because you’re not a heathen)
Let it steep for a little while
Serve over ice with soda water
(Served 6 nicely but not too nicely)
The first time my friend Dave saw it, he asked if it was an alcoholic salad. Yup. Pretty much. But it’s delicious.
what is going on inside this? Is there an actual savory cake filling, or?
I should go put some food in my mouth.
