2 weeks old flowers
This weekend I plan to have a quiet and nice weekend. And so far I seem to be able to stick to the plan. Slow Friday night with good food and a good book. Woke up this morning feeling rested and ready for some coffee, breakfast, podcasts, music and more reading.
Soon feeling ready to go out for a little walk, then some household work, before I go up to my parents to prepare some tacos for family dinner. Then back to my book and a glass of red wine.
Then there is another day of no alarm clock that may bring everything or nothing. Or probably something in between.
Weekends like this is really such a treat. I hope this weekend brings to you what you wish from it.
I was asked lately if I could include a recipe for the Norwegian Meat Cakes I mentioned previous. I usually don’t use recipes as anything more than a general guideline, so all the ingredients are there, but the amounts are not absoulte. So here goes:
800 g ground beef
3 table spoons Potato flour
Mix the ingredients together and use a spoon and your hands to shape out some large meat balls. put them in a frying pan and dry them on both sides before putting them in the gravy and letting them simmer for a while.
This is tradtionally served with potatos, gravy, mushy peas, and lingonberry jam.
Personally I prefer to serve it with sweet potato mash, carrots and mushroom.
Old barn in October
The winter storms has done it’s job on this old run down barn. The first photo is from a walk in October last year and the below is from last Sunday.
Same barn in February
Nice patterns in the frozen puddle
Found this frozen puddle on my walk on Sunday. Somehow the pattern that had formed reminded me of the painting “scream” by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch.
Frozen mini waterfall
I also liked how the water seems to have frozen on it’s way down to the ground.
Sunny Sunday by the Sea
The weather this weekend has been lovely. Just below freezing and sunny. My dad and me got in the boat and went for a lovely, but cold boat ride in to our summer house today.
It was a perfect day to air and de-dust the cushions, rugs, pillows and blankets. And I also found the time to go for a lovely walk in the sunshine.
Boat trip home
Today is Mother’s day here in Norway, so I am waiting for my Mum to come home so she can get a little present and I’m going to make a nice Sunday dinner. I hope she’ll enjoy.
