Quick Goulash soup

I have to share this recipe whilst it’s bubbling away… I have a freezer full of mince, and this is such an easy and yum way to use it.

1 onion
4 potatoes
1 pepper
1 table spoon of oil
500 gr of mince (give or take)
600ml water
1 meat stock cube
600 gr tinned tomatoes
2 tsp caraway seeds (called “Kummin” in Swedish, you would think that was cumin in English but noooo)
1 tsp paprika (smoked if you are into that)
Salt & pepper to taste (and a bit of chilli powder if you like it hot)

Fry the onion, pepper and mince in the oil. Add the spices, potatoes, stock cube, water and tomatoes. Simmer until potatoes are soft, about 15 min. Lovely with a dollop of creme fraiche.


Got to go, it’s ready:)

Finally! A sideboard…

I have been so busy with my new job, that my home has definitely suffered… Piles of stuff everywhere and little progress on tasks that need to be dealt with. Welcome to the real world I hear you say… So, when I found a little antiques shop in the middle of Swedish nowhere that are helpful and deliver for next to nothing, I was very much cheered up! Here’s the sideboard I bought.

It matches the mid century chest of drawers I bought back in the autumn. No peeking at the nest of cables that I haven’t untangled. Or the computer that can’t go in the cupboard yet because I haven’t had time to make holes in the back. Be nice!
Also bought these:

Plan is to get them up on the wall by the tv. It will be like my own little hunting lodge 😉
