Adventures in cooking/help from the library
Today we did more exploring during the daylight hours. We walked along the river and over to the university. For lunch we went to the kauppahalle and ate soup in the old tram car. I explored the smoked reindeer offerings, but chickened out. Cooking without my cuisinart gear and immersion blender is going to be a challenge so we headed back to the library to look for Finnish cookbooks. I checked out two cookbooks: Hyvaa Ruokaa and Kunnon Ruokka. I hope to tackle the grocery stores with a better plan.
The library is turning out to be one of our favorite spots. It is lively. Free internet. A teen section with games. Plastic bubble chairs. Everything a body could desire.
