Was in the grocery store today (it's bad that I've discovered another one closer to my apartment but I still like the one I saw Stellan Skarsgård in 'cause it's cool... it's Grocery Shopping with the Stars), and I was standing there holding a tube of something and my Swedish dictionary, trying to figure out what the heck it was.
Now, in other countries, there's a limit to what foodstuffs are likely to be found in a tube, right? It's going to be some sort of condiment... right? Wrong. I swear you could make an entire meal in Sweden just by squirting stuff onto your plate.
I have some cousins in the Pacific Northwest, and I once described their personal style as "always ready for unexpected hiking". Swedish food is kind of "always ready for an unexpected trip to space".
