Pretty pudding

One of our favourite desserts:
Chocolate pudding.
I'm cheating a bit,
making it out of a mix, adding milk and boiling carefully for
a couple of minutes.
But isn't it beautiful!
I've used this mold made of pottery
It is very old, and I can remember it from when I was little
I thought it was magic!
my mum gave it to me a while ago
because she knew I loved it!
There will be more puddings coming up!
There's some holes in the bottom of it, if I should want to hang it on the wall...

Tusenfryd

We went to our closest amusement park yesterday

(it means A thousand happy moments)
I am a total chicken when it comes to rides etc
I will gladely hold your bag, your jacket and your sunglasses
while you go on and scare yourself to death!

This monster reminded me of the the film: War of the worlds!

So massive, and the people attatched to the wheel, looked like ants!

Watching it was more than enough for me!

Too slow

Tonight the photographer
Was far to slow!
She tried to keep up,
but was too late
The moussaka was eaten
The salad was gone
The wine glass was empty
The plates almost licked clean
And all this happened before she remembered her camera
But believe me
It was a lovely Friday Feast
Plates became empty and bellies full
the week was over
and the weekend new!

Yoghurt with honey

This is one of our favourites:
Greek yoghurt with honey!
Let me tell you something about yoghurt with honey
The first time I tasted it was when I was in Greece for the first time.
The first time I was in Greece I met my husband
on the island of Crete in 1989.
Two years later we went to the island of Kos
We were students and didn't have much spending money
but we rented bicycles and went to a beach a little bit further away
from the central beach where all the sun beds were
because we couldn't afford it.
One day my husband went back to fetch his diving goggles.
I stayed on my blanket in the sun, and enjoyed the warmth and the sound of the sea
(which was free of charge)
After a while I saw him coming,
he had been bicycling one handed through town
in the other hand he held a glass of
Yoghurt with honey
for his beloved girlfriend.

A good walk


I just love a walk in the park
A sunny Tuesday evening in May!
We're so lucky to have this wonderful place to walk our walks in!

Little Chef's Confirmation

If you remember 3 years ago
This Saturday it was Little Chef's turn
He wore a handsome suit, and was of course
the most beautiful young man of the ceremony!
Like last time, we had his English Grandparents and his Aunt Marie
coming over from England, and had a great time with them!
We had lovely food
and of course
Flags are important in a Norwegian celebration
Spot the reflection in the cheesecake!
Pavlova
These are a few of the lovely cakes we had
Like last time,
we have eaten cake every day since,
filled boxes in the freezer and are now
longing for a green apple!
