A multiple sclerosis blog.
Nothing like a little limsa to wash down the gurka.
The list is primarily in Swedish, for those who can't tell Swedish from other European languages (or from other Scandinavian languages, for that matter). What's interesting linguistically is that the items in English are the items that are not available or in everyday use in Sweden (e.g. avacado, chili sauce, etc.). The Scandinavians don't have a culture that values produce the way those of us who have access to California food distribution networks do. Instead, they have a culture that values design, technology, and social fairness and tolerance. (I'd gladly give up avacados for that.)My take is: give that Swede credit for branching out to the world of avacados and chili! -tt
I fear a Swede's first attempt at making burritos.

Another translation! (hoped you'd go there!) Of course, add this to my monthly bill. :)
