The last two weeks have been like a summer fairy tale. Wearing red-white hats my classmates and I have biked from home to home, relaxed in the summer heath, gone for midnight swims in the lake, seen the sun rise multiple times sitting on the shore with the arms around each other and danced all night. It has been amazing. But now I take off the hat. My two graduation weeks are done. Soon we are flying to all different corners of the world. And after summer we are not going back to school together. But we will always be 3T, our home-class. Thanks for the adventure!

De sidste to uger har været et langt eventyr uden lige. Iført rød-hvide huer har vi fløjet fra hus til hus, daset i sommerheden, taget midnats-dukkerter i søerne, set solopgange siddende på bredden med armene om hinanden og danset og sunget hele natten. Det har været intet mindre end fantastisk. Men nu tager jeg huen af. Mine to studenteruger er brugt. Om lidt flyver vi til alle hjørner af verden på ferie. Og bagefter skal vi ikke tilbage i klasse sammen. Men for mig vil vi altid være 3.T – tak for eventyret!

My time as a graduate is done. I already miss it. But I am back in the blogging world – and that is the best comfort you can ever have. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I worked two days at the central market in Copenhagen during the exams. It was an amazing experience – and very inspiring. One day I got the most delicious sandwich I’ve ever had (no joke) from SMAG (the company which we also bought the food for my graudation party from). It consisted of

an amazing sourdough bun

packed with spinach,

carrot purree,

a ton of sunflower seeds,

grilled eggplants drenched in olive oil,

and some beyond amazing zucchini patties with a firework of spices – cinnamon being the most significant of them.

Yes please!

Så ja, min studentertid er slut. Jeg kan ikke helt forstå det. Men til gengæld er jeg tilbage på bloggen – og det er den bedste trøst, man kan få! Hvis du følger mig på Instagram, så du måske, at jeg i læseferien arbejdede to dage til et arrangement på Torvehallerne. Det var en fantastsik oplevelse – og inspirerende på mange måder. Den ene dag fik jeg den lækreste sandwich nogensinde (no joke) fra SMAG (som jeg i øvrigt også fik mad til mit studentergilde fra). Den bestod af

det skønneste surdejsbrød,

spinatblade,

gulerodspurre,

massere af solsikkekerner,

grillede auberginer, der drev af olivenolie,

og nogen helt fantastisk krydrede squashdeller, der smukt kastede rundt med tonsvis krydderier – kanel den mest markante af dem.

MUMS siger jeg bare!

I had to make such a sandwich myself! But I am a big bowl-freak and love food which you can eat using only a fork. So I transformed the sandwich into a bowl. But you can easily make it a sandwich by throwing everything in a sourdough bun – lunch to go.

The recipe looks long, but it’s actually very simple and easy to make. You can also just make the patties and serve them with your favourite salad.

Jeg måtte lave sådan en sandwich selv! Jeg er lidt af en skål-freak og elsker mad, der kan spises med blot en gaffel. Så sandwichen blev tryllet om til en skål. Men smid hellere end gerne hele molevitten i en lækker surdejsbolle – DET er guf.

Opskrift ser lang ud, men den er faktisk super simpel. Hvis du vil kan du også bare lave dellerne og servere dem til en lækker salat.
