Friday tacos

When moving back to Sweden four years ago, adapting to the strict cultural norms and habits of the majority culture was kind of a challenge. Without a TV, we were automatically disqualified for “fredagsmys” in front of “Mello”. The real source of alienation however was the fact that we did not seem to eat tacos on Friday nights. Over the years, we have tried our best to fit into the neighbourhood but it surely did not help that we once had tacos on a Tuesday.

Anyway, walking down the aisle at the supermarket yesterday, I stumbled on some “pulled oats” which seemed to offer a vegetarian path to, if not citizenship, so at least neighbourhood normalization. With some chipotle taco seasoning, I think the result was actually highly satisfactory.
