Another Buzzador moment for Zeta tomatoes

Zeta Tomater – Zeta tomatoes

I used my second #buzzador can of Zeta tomatoes for a chicken pasta bake. This time I used the fine crushed version. Jag använde min andra #buzzador kan av Zeta-tomater för en kycklingpasta bake. Den här gången använde jag den fina krossade versionen.

Zeta tomater
That’s my dinner for four done! Det är min middag för fyra gjort!

I roasted chicken breasts and added them to a cream sauce with bacon and rosemary. I added cooked bowtie pasta and a can of Zeta tomatoes. I poured it in a casserole and sprinkled a bit of panko and parmesan on top. Jag rostade kycklingbröst och lade dem till en krämsås med bacon och rosmarin. Jag lade till kokt bowtie pasta och en burk Zeta-tomater. Jag hällde den i en gryta och sprinklade lite panko och parmesan på toppen.

 

*I’m a buzzador and this is my first buzz. I got to try out Zeta canned tomatoes in three varieties. I agreed to buzz about what I made and am doing that with pleasure. Then 10 best picture sharers will win 300 kr worth of products from Zeta.

*Jag är en buzzador och det här är min första buzz. Jag fick prova Zeta konserverad tomater i tre sorter. Jag kom överens om att jag tyckte om vad jag gjorde och gjorde det med nöje. De 10 bästa bilderna vinner produkter från Zeta värde 300 kronor!

Buzzing about Zeta Tomatoes

Zeta Tomater – Zeta Tomatoes

#zetatomaterbuzz #buzzador

Jag valde körsbärstomaterna för att göra en vegetarisk taco bake. I used the cherry tomatoes to make a veggie taco bake.

Jag gjorde min med vegetariska färs, Zeta körsbärstomater och taco kryddor. I made mine with vegetarian ground mix Zeta cherry tomatoes and taco seasoning.

Efter kokning av blandningen jag sprider den i en ugnsform och lager en tortilla ovanpå. After cooking the mixture I spread it in a baking dish and layered a tortilla on top.

Nästa toppning var en blandning av creme fraiche, strimlad ost och taco mix. Next layer was a mixture of creme fraische, shredded cheese and taco mix.

Jag toppade det med mer ost och bakade tills bubbla. Så enkelt och bra. I topped that with more cheese and baked until bubbly. So simple and good.

Awin Fashion Day

#AwinFashionSthlm

So I didn’t get invited to Stockholm Fashion Week but I did get invited to Awin Fashion Day last week. The audience was bloggers and advertisers. And what a day it was.

Awin Fashion Day

The event could not have taken place at a nice location. The Fotografiska Museum is on the water in Stockholm and commands fantastic views. In fact, my Swede walked me there with the hopes of seeing an American destroyer in town as part of a massive military exercise.  But the destroyer had moved and I digress.

Awin Fashion Day
Morning mingle in the exhibition room with delicious blueberry smoothies.

Registration began at 12.30. Awin Nordics Managing Director, Tim Lomborg welcomed everyone and outlined how our day will play out. And it started with a bang with an excellent presentation by Jesper Åström titled Creating Growth in a Networked World.

Awin Fashion day
A captive and captivated audience.

Josh Wallin, the Chief Operating Officer of Tailify gave the keynote address about The Power of Social Media Influencers. Turns out you don’t have to a reality TV star to be a social media influencer. The dream lives on!

Awin Fashion Day
Line ’em up!

Following the coffee break during which I enjoyed several cups of rooibos tea, the models did a run through for the Awin Fashion Show sponsored by Ellos. We were welcomed back in just in time to grab a glass of bubbly. Nice!

Awin Fashion Day
It was like walking and drinking in sunshine.

Doesn’t it look pretty? It even matches my shoes. It was a fashion event after all.

Awin Fashion Day
Then I spent the next few minutes enjoying a cool music set by DJ Wonekai.

Awin Fashion Day
The DJ rocked it. And I loved sitting in the front row.

Then it was just sip, sip, look, look, and note the trends. Sorry, I only took snaps of the fellas, but hey, I exercised my ladies’ prerogative 😉

As for the women’s trends, I noticed for fall, black, grey and white sneakers rules. Red is red hot. Short boots are in. So is burgundy or as it is called here aubergine, along with velvet,suede, silk, and leather. Work boots work too.

Awin Fashion Day
I love the leather (look?) leggings. I tried on a pair at COS years ago I should have snagged. I just couldn’t agree with the price tag.

And the fashion coordinator, Maryem N of Awin did an excellent job of ensuring a diverse selection of models proving that fashion isn’t about size but rather attitude.

Awin Fashion Day
There is the gorgeous Maryem in jeans on the right out front basking in the glory.

Awin Fashion Day
And you know we got soul.

I couldn’t help but introduce myself to the young DJ. I was so proud of her! I learned she’s a recent high school graduate and is currently studying at Stockholm University. If I can find her any DJ gigs I will. I want her for my next party! Maryem, on the far right, the same Maryem that organized the fashion show is someone I met years ago. She actually stood me up for lunch last month but made up for it by giving me an exclusive and rare Awin Fashion ay fashion show t-shirt. I love limited editions.

Awin Fashion Day
I got my t-shirt.

After the fashion show and bubbly it was back to work, or at least back to learning. Sara Narvus and her colleague shared the secrets of the success behind Norway’s Nettavisen Spray news website. The education ended with A Beginners Guide to Affiliate Marketing presented by Ben Mullen, a fellow American and Sr. Business Development and Client Strategy Manager at Awin.

 

I must say I was inspired by each presentation and learned tons. I also met three Americans, a few Swedes, a German, a young lady from the former Yugoslavia and was treated to wine, nibbles and a very decent swag bag.

 

Nice things happen to me in Sweden.
