This was a word that was new to me when I moved to the US but that I quickly learned the meaning of. Now for the first time I have seen it here in Sweden in a cooking magazine that I bought last week. Comfort Food in Swedish. It is defined as food or dishes that make you feel at home, that make the cold winter more cozy. In this article the cooked and listed Swedish meatballs, Kalops that is a kind of meat stew, macaroni casserole and Panini sandwiches. Comfort food is connected to warm memories and childhood moments. I think that one should also add Falu sausage on the list of Swedish comfort food. It is another one of those things that almost every Swede loves and eats. I also guess that comfort food may differ depending on different parts of the country here as well as in the US. What are your comfort foods /dishes?Something else that is very very Swedish is the cozy Friday thing. It seems just like every Swedish family every Friday after work gather together for some "Cozy Friday time". This is almost like a holy ritual here. Part of the ritual is to always eat tacos for dinner, then gather the family and watch tv together eating snacks and candy, perferably watching some kind of family program like Dancing with the Stars or the Swedish version of American Idol. Me and C have not taken to the Cozy Friday thing. I don't know but to me if feels almost like to much. I like to relax on Fridays and take it easy but I sure don't feel I need to eat tacos every Friday and watch some sing or dance tv-show. I guess the cozy Friday ritual is one big comfort evening for the Swedes. Well Fridays are nice with or without cozy Friday time so I look forward to the coming Friday.
