Kiss goodbye the low carb diet

The Finnish menu for the next two months: new potatoes, dill, butter and herring. And maybe some salmon and salad.

New potatoes are available already now. They're not yet at their peak in taste, but they surely are good, much better than the Swedish new potatoes. Cooking is the only way to prepare new potatoes. Don't even dream about making mashed potatoes, casseroles or fries out of the new summer potatoes - you'll end up having glue (been there done that). But really, cooking in lightly salted water with dill is the best and the only way.


  1. I couldn't agree more with you, in everything except that about the Swedish new potatoes. But I guess that's what you expected. :)
    I wish you a wonderful midsummer with a lot of potatoes!

    1. That's the way it goes :) Have a great midsummer too!
