FLYING ASPARAGUS | A slightly more grownup Jacob

20120428-210144.jpg

Flying Jacob (Swedish: Flygande Jacob) is a Swedish casserole based on chicken with bananas, peanuts and bacon, covered with whipped cream laced with hot sauce and cooked in the oven.

In checking the supplies I realised there were no bananas…

No bananas?
NO BANANAS?!?
So asparagus it was, and a bloody fantastic concoction it is, if I may say so.

And as per usual in preparing Flying Jacob, never go lightly with the hot sauce.

PAPA’S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG | Trying out “Gröna Kassen”, Sweden’s greenest grocery bag

Gröna kassen is a grocery bag delivery service (matkasse) with an all out vegan selection and close to 100% ecological suppliers. Gröna kassen delivers out of Stockholm and now also include Uppsala and Västerhaninge. They deliver every second week and you can choose to order bags with groceries for 3-5 dishes for 4 persons each.

Always fun to try out a new food delivery service, and even more so when one of the founders is a good friend and delivers the food in person, not that I would let that cloud my judgement. Looking forward to testing the three dishes included in the bag I ordered.

1. Chili sin carne served with rice and salad
2. Sesam breaded tofu served with cauliflower puré and yellow carrot sticks
3. Tsay skewers served with curry sauce and rice

Still looking for a delivery service that caters to us singles, ie that does not assume that you expect three friends to come over for dinner every evening, or that you enjoy eating the same food for several days. Rumors say this option just may become available, or atleast an option of cutting down the recepies to 2 servings.
