Quark is delicious. Especially the white chocolate coconut kind:

That sounds like such an amazing weekend! I am always a little jealous of how social your life is. I rarely get to hang out with friends! The food also sounds so amazing!

With all that good food you should have run 34 km instead of 17...

Keep posting your menu along your trainings! Both are much inspiring! ; )

New game? What was the new game?

I can't remember the name - the whole thing was in Polish! Apparently they make British and American versions but they are slightly different and not as good. I'll ask when I see my co-workers at work tomorrow!

I've always thought how'd it would be fun to blog about cooking, like Alex does, but I can't even keep up my blog about training and racing. Thierry, where is your food blog? (P.S. I'd love the recipes from Friday's dinner!, though I'm not sure I will even make my own pistachio paste. That's dedication :) )

Well, if I start blogging about food, I am well afraid I will have to cut down training hours. But it is very tempting as food is clearly challenging my interest for maps! ; )

Pistachio paste... Hum, we realized when you left, that it was even better in the simplest form: on a toasted bread!

Sam, to be fair, I haven't updated my food blog in many, many, months. Takes too much time to remember to take photos and what went into those photos!

Your brunch sounded amazing. I'm also jealous of how social your life is! Living in Uppsala sounds like living at college - all your friends all do the same things and live very near each other!

Living in Uppsala does remind me of living in college - just without the hallways smelling like stale beer :) It helps that the orienteers in Linné are very friendly and social (and all around wonderful amazing people) and Ross and I both have a group of colleagues who like to play games as well. How much of it is cultural? There is a great emphasis here on fika - coffee and snacks with friends. Does that lead to people making more social engagements? Or is it just like this for me right now, because I have lots of local friends from the orientering club who all live in the same neighborhood? I also just have more time here than the US since I'm working fewer hours.

Also, the translation of kvarg to quark to cottage cheese makes me think that what we're eating is slightly different. It's more like thick creamy yogurt than cottage cheese. Or the wikipedia article just does a bad job of describing it :)

The game is quick to set up, needs only enough space to spread out the picture cards, and can accommodate seven players (or more, really, since it is a team decision to interpret the "dreams"). The English translation is Mysterium

Nice. We almost bought that for my birthday, but got Terra Mystica instead.

I'm just back from a spying mission, and apparently the Swiss are raising funds to sponsor TGIF's food blog.
