Chicken croquette with home made chili sauce

Yesterday, I was at home earlier than Andrea. I knew he would have been at home late really tired and a little bit stressed.  So I wanted to cheer him up.

I arrived at home at 19,30 it’s quite late considering the Swedish time.

 But we had a wonderful sunny, warm day (still in the swedish measurement), and I felt full of energy. So I decided to do something funny to eat. What’s it funnier than ”fast-finger-tasty food”?

So as usual I tried to invent something different. Sometimes my experiments have been turned into a disaster. But this time…Ohhh!!! It was delicious!
