Some more photos from our trip
Östergötland is a really beautiful part of Sweden. I lived in Linkoping for seven years - it was there, at university, that I met Per. He is from Motala, and his family still lives there, and it was where we went earlier this week.
Like I said, we visited Söderköping to eat ice cream. The restaurant - or ice cream bar - is right by Göta Kanal, the very popular channel that goes through Sweden.
We also visited Brunneby - they make jam and fruit cordials that can be found all over Sweden, but this is their actual factory. They have a great café, and a lovely store where you can find all of their products as well as locally produced eggs, flour and other things.
And Per's mom made one of my favorite meals: Mushroom Chicken Pie.
She also made Per's favorite: Salmon Rolls. (His mom's were better than the ones he makes - more cheese, less mustard, and fresh dill.)
