I'm back from Finland. It took a long time to get there and even longer to get back. I went through two time zones and 4 countries on my way home, it was quite exhausting actually. But the stay in Finland was definitely worth it! I was there for a meeting, which gave nice results even though their future is challenging. The "spare time" was even better. I enjoyed: having a social life for two days, seeing trees, the wind-free and cold snowy weather, the thai-buffet we had for lunch, ice cream and the buildings in Vaasa. Most fun of all was the activity we did on Wednesday evening: sauna and ICE SWIMMING. The procedure was easy; sit in the sauna for 10 minutes to warm up the body, then out and in the 0,5 C/32,90 F cold water. I even went swimming 5-10 meters without dying of the cold. Then up and repeat the procedure or go and put on clothes. It was really cool and I might share a picture with you if I can get hold on any.
Anyway, on to the food. I found a small health store with some organic food, and there I found something I've been longing for for quite a while now; vital wheat gluten! I bought the big bag (1 kg/2,2 lb) and squeezed it into my bag. Now it's here, and I need all your best ideas what to use it for! I don't want a basic seitan recipe, since I can do that from scratch. I'm thinking sausages and stuff like that! And chickpea cutlets of course. Hit me with you're best ideas!
I also have 10 limes lying around, any ideas for those?
