Swedish word/phrase of the week


Vegetables to you and me who look in the dictionary. But for those who love a literal translation, green things. Every time I see this word, I get a giggle going. I often say to the boy that I think we need more green things in our diet, or I am going shopping to get some green things. 

What's not to love about the language in which vegetables are referred to as green things. My ipod is green, maybe I shall rename it vegetable.
