Sweden...Land Of The Midnight Sun


These are some photos from prior trips taken in Gothenburg and Stockholm.

Well folks I'm off to Sweden, the land of the Midnight Sun. I will try to post via the Go.Blogger and Blackberry route(nix that, way to expensive with international roaming charges) or my friends computer.If not I will have a full recap of my adventures when I return. I plan to meet up with two fellow Daring Bakers in Stockholm and look forward to getting to know them. The rest of the week will be occupied with moving into Certain Someones summer house and a wedding.See ya when I get back.
PS:
We all love contests and chances to win free stuff!How apropos Sweden,Salmon,Salmon,Sweden..... Check this out:
WIN A SUMMER OF WILD SALMON CONTEST
Please submit your best salmon recipe to
MarxFoods.com by Friday, June 20, 2008. Salmon should be the star of the dish, but the recipe can incorporate any variety of salmon—fresh, frozen, smoked, canned, pickled, etc.
The creator of the winning recipe will receive three separate 5 lb. shipments of wild salmon fillets (15 lbs. total); one in July, August, and September, 2008, on the date of the winner’s choosing. Each shipment will contain a different type of wild salmon, varying by species and river origin.
The winning recipe will be judged by the
MarxFoods.com staff on deliciousness and originality. Please only enter a recipe that can be created in a home (vs. professional) kitchen.
Results will be announced on Wednesday, June 25.


I submitted mine! Good Luck and see/read you when I get back.

Oh, I'm so jealous, but happy for YOU. ;-)

Give the land of the Midnight Sun a hug for me, and blow a kiss for me in the direction of Stockholm, where my Swedish daughter is.

Enjoy!

What a pity!!! We're so sad about the salmon recipe competition.......we'd like to partecipate but we have just read that it is reserved to those that are US residents.
What do you think, does it is possible to submit our recipe being out of competition, just for fun and our satisftaction?
