Woohoo!



The election is finally over, and it looks like I can relax. With the preliminary counting of the votes, it seems like there are three things to be happy about.

1. We have a new goverment!
2. I probably got into local parliament!
3. I will probably continue to be employed! (nice one)

I promise to go back to more normal food blogging tomorrow. For now, just for inspiration - a peach salad with thinly sliced red onions, and a simple garlic lemon vinaigrette. It was great with a piece of grilled beef.

The Swedish elections were mentioned in The Philadelphia Inquirer (newspaper) today. I was pretty sure Sweden had a new government but I wasn't sure what it meant for you personally. Will you keep your full-time job while serving in local Parliament?

Grattis! Jag är SÅ himla glad! Jag röstade på folkpartiet i skolvalet, men jag ska gå med i MUF, partierna skiljer sig ej särkilt mycket ifrån varandra och jag vill vara med och fortsätta att liberalisera Moderaterna. Jag anser att partierna borde slås ihop om ett tag. Idag firade jag med min favvoriträtt: sushi!

Congratulations Anne! A friend of mine was elected to local government last year and she is happier now than she has ever been before. I have no doubt that you will make a huge success of it. And the idea of that sweet yet tangy salad with a nice piece of meat is just fabulous :-)
