Winter lights are lit

Wonderful spicy Korean Fried Chicken at Noodle Noodle

This week it is Autumn break for the schools in my home town of Stavanger. In earlier days this was called potato break and was a break from school to help get the potatoes in before winter. I did not have a break from work, but there are a few things going on in town so we decided to go out, join in and enjoy the evening. We took advantage of some of the good offers in the shops and got a few pairs of shoes. We then went to a restaurant we like, for a good meal. I opted to get the Spicy Korean Fried Chicken with noodles and vegetables.

Winter lights being lit in the colored street

From six o’clock there was things going on in a street in Stavanger called, Fargegaten (meaning the colored street), where all the houses are colorful. Every year they put up colored lights there and they keep them up for the duration of the darkest months, not just for Christmas. At eight, the lights were lit and by now there were quite a lot people joining in to have a look. I waited till a lot of them had left before I took a photo.

Lovely cocktails at Pjolter & Punch

Before going home we did go for some lovely cocktails at a lovely little cocktail place called Pjolter & Punch. I tried one I had not tried before and I enjoyed it as much as I have the others I have tried. All in all it was a good evening doing something else than just lying on the couch.

Now I am very ready for the weekend, I have installed myself with the laptop on the couch, must be allowed today as I was out yesterday. My glass of red is on the table beside me and I’m going to look around for something to have a look at on Netflix. Or I might put on some music and catch up on some blogs I have not been able to get around to this week.

Hope your weekend will be as amazing as it should be.

  1. First of all, I love the “potato break”! It’s such a unique aspect of life in your area! My wife LOVED the lights above your street as well, and I loved the chicken dish you shared!

    1. I don’t think there are many people using their holiday in the potato fields these days, but it was for a long time. I love both the lights and the chicken!

  2. What a great time out, with a little bargain shopping & delicious looking food. I really fancy some noodles now! 😆 And those lights are incredibly pretty, I love them! xx

  3. We have a drink similar to moonshine in Romania. It is called “tzuica” (I am spelling it with tz for phonetic reasons). It is made from prunes, most of the time.
    Looks like you had a lovely time! Those chairs seem quite comfy 🙂

    1. The Norwegian moonshine is like a very strong vodka and not very nice in taste, yours sound better. The chairs comfy and the evening lovely. Hope your weekend is good to you!
