Sugar

I have a first world problem.

When you buy candy and one of the candy pieces have sugar on it. Because of that everything in the candy bag gets sugary! Everything taste like the sugar coated candy.

There is one solution. Use two bags. One for the sugar candy and one for the non sugary candy. I would do that but I’m too lazy.

Omelette

I can’t eat onion. I can but my bowls get crazy. When I eat it often I get sick. I love to use onion when I cook but I have to think about how often I have eaten it before I cook that day.

I try to eat vegetarian all the time and I think onions makes vegetarian dishes tastier. Or I think onions makes all dishes, vegetarian or no vegetarian, better. I love the taste of onions. Because my bowls can’t take onions I’ve had to find substitutes for it. A substitute that works well are olives. They can’t replace onions but I like the saltiness of the olives. Omelettes are one of my favorite things to eat. I like bacon in omelettes but when I want a veggie one I’ve used onions before. Now I’ve used olives instead for a while and I don’t miss onions.

This omelette has olives, tomatoes, sugar snaps and peppers in it. I used green olives cause I think they’re tastier.

Almost vegetarian

I have come to a conclusion that an almost vegetarian way of eating is best for me. With almost vegetarian I mean vegetarian but where eggs and milk are included. I know there is a word for that type of “vegetarianism” is it ovo vegetarian? I eat meat and fish but not often. I try to avoid these foods and I don’t miss them. I make meat dinners when I’m lazy and want to cook something quickly.

Why this is the best for me is cause it makes me feel better. When I haven’t eaten meat for a while I feel less tired. Even my depression gets better. I don’t mean meat is bad but I feel like my body can’t handle it. I sometimes feel like eating steak but then my bowls go through the roof. I get sick.

I don’t know if my depression gets better when I don’t eat meat but I feel better. I think it has to do with my physical health getting better when I’m meat free. I feel like meat is hard on my body.

I have been “strictly vegetarian” for different periods and I have felt better then. It was harder to cut out meat before because then there hardly wasn’t any meat substitutes. The things you could buy were often disgusting. Now there are many ready made vegetarian foods that taste good.

This is my favorite almost vegetarian dinner. Veggie omelette. I add whatever veggies I have available. Tasty!

Well

I’ve had to take time off. Kajsa had surgery a while ago. Not surgery but teeth cleaning at the vet. They sedate animals when they do that. There’s a risk with sedating that the animal won’t wake up from it. I know that almost never happen but you never know.

Last surgery Kajsa had I almost lost her. That was when she was neutered. I know that was more surgery involved than teeth cleaning but I thought it would be like that this time too.

I brush Kajsas teeth. When I’m depressed I don’t do it cause I’m too sad. It was those non brushing times that made her teeth brown. The vet said it wasn’t bad but I wanted to clean them before they became a problem.

I took her to the vet early. They said I could get her later that day. I couldn’t relax and thought they would call and tell me Kajsa didn’t make it. They called and I thought that was it. I was excited when they instead wanted me to get her earlier.

They said Kajsa was barking and getting crazy. She can’t be alone and I think she didn’t want to be by herself when the vet staff had to leave her.

I got to the vet and I thought Kajsa would be crazy but she was quiet. She was with the vet staff in the “office room”. She was calm cause she wasn’t alone.

She has clean white teeth now!

Vegetarian

-Honey we only got 10 vegetarian schnitzels!

-The ones we don’t like?

-Those ones!

-We have to buy more now!

We don’t eat these schnitzels but someone bought them cause they were on sale. Someone…… not me.

Dog blog

This is Kajsa. I am the dog mom writes about sometimes. My mom is feeling depressed now and she can`t do anything. I said I could write instead of her for once. Honestly I didn`t say that I secretly decided to do that. My mom says I bark a lot and I thought I would bark some in this blog.

I`m five years old. I`m almost older than my mom when I count my age in human years. My mom hopes every birthday will make me calmer but it doesn`t. I`m a crazy dog and we keep our crazy the whole life. We bark and run around. Terriers are crazy.

I can be calm sometimes.

 

I have begun to run away, I said I was crazy. When my mom leaves the front door open without looking I run. I run down to the apartment building`s frontdoor and if that`s open too, freedom! Usually it`s not open and that makes me feel freedom is near but far away! You know what I mean. I can smell the air outside but a door is in my way. My mom says I will give her a heartattack some day.

I love footballs. I could chase footballs, or soccer balls, all day. I don`t care about anything when I play with one. I can play with balls both big and small. I don`t get to play with little balls anymore because my mom says I won`t let go of them. I don`t care big balls makes me happy anyway.

This dog has things to do now. I have to leave you with these thoughts. Life is better when you`re crazy.

 

Pangoodies

I didn`t know there were all this types of pancakes. I thought there were the crèpe, swedish pancake, and the american with baking powder. The swedish pancake is like a crèpe. It`s flat and thin. The american pancake is thicker. Anyway there are lots of pancakes.

I like the swedish pancake more than the american. It`s the baking powder in the american I don`t like. I had it when I had brunch long ago and I thought it would taste wonderful. I was disappointed. I think my preference when it comes to food is that it should taste mild and I only like the things I liked when I was younger. Limiting I know.

I never use a recipe when it comes to pancakes. I began going by the smell of the batter to know it was the way it should. Now I`ve made it many times and know how it should be. I couldn`t write about pancakes and not leave any explanation on how to make them. Because of that I tried to think about how much I use of the ingredients.

8 pancakes makes two servings and for that I used

50 gr melted butter (heartattack waiting to happen it’s lots)

4 eggs 

7 dl milk

4 dl flour

20170930_154237

Mix all ingredients. The texture should be like a white sauce.

20170930_154827

Even with the enormous amount of butter in the batter I put additional butter in the pan for every pancake I make. Every pancake should fill the whole bottom of the pan.

Eat them with jam and whipped cream.

 

Caring

I think hair is big business. When you don`t feel fine about your hair you`re miserable. It doesn`t mean you think about your hair all the time but if it`s not what you like it`s hard.

I`ve cut my hair myself for a long time. I do it because it`s expensive to go to a hairdresser. I only trim my ends and to pay 100 dollars to do that is a lot. I do it too because of the way hairdressers treat my hair. They always want cut layers in my hair. That can be wonderful if your hair looks good in it. My hair looks like I`ve got two different hairstyles with layers. Hair dressers say “I cut layers in your hair” but they could say “you get two hairstyles in one cut”. My hair is more than straight and that`s why layers looks like that, layers.

The thing I don`t want in a hair salon is a blow out. It feels like they pull out every hair. I say that I don`t want that round brush tearing apart my hair in the blow dryer but they can`t help them selves. They say they will dry a little but then they get their brush and dryer and make my scalp burn. I get many demand a blow out however I can`t stand it.

I use oil on my hair because I have tangles. When I don`t put oil on I can`t brush my hair because of the tangles. My favorite hair products come from Marc Anthony. This oil Repairing Macadamia Oil Treatment makes my hair soft and without tangles. It lasts a long time.

Shaving

I like being a woman. I like it but it`s not easy. We should have much hair on our head. On our body and “down below” it`s another story. Every woman should be an open field with no hair on our body and private parts!

This hair free trend is crazy to me. When I grew up no one removed hair like we do now. If someone would say back then they waxed their private parts we would be like why???? No one of my friends removed more than the hair on their legs. I don`t even think “private parts waxing” was available then. We used desposable razors and used soap as shaving foam. We shaved our bikini area too but that was it. Now it`s more normal to remove every hair on your body than not to. I do think maintaining your body hair is good and I wax and use hair removal cream but I`m not completely bare.

I do think a body without hair is more attractive. The media is constantly showering us with images of hair free bodies and it`s hard to not get affected by it. I don`t want to look at it like that but if someone would have hair on their legs I would want to give them a razor. “I had this razor laying around and thought you could use it”.

I have sensitive skin and hair removal is harsh on it. I can`t use razors because that makes my skin breakout in red spots. When I`ve shaved my legs I`ve used new razors and lots of foam but the red spots show up anyway. It`s the easiest way to remove hair but not for me.

Last time I removed hair I used a hair removal cream. I`ve used that brand before and it has been fine but this time I tried another one of their products. I got red spots everywhere. The removal cream I normally use is faster working than the latest one I tried. I think it was the time thing that made me break out. If you have trouble with shaving spots try removal cream with a short “working process”.

My favorite hair removal product is waxes. It takes time to do it but my skin tolerates it. The best waxes are the hard and soft ones. You heat the wax up put it on your skin and remove it with strips. The best way to do waxes is to have it done at a salon. I would do it more often if I had the money. Typical that the most expensive method is the best one.
