The dream team

Before the show starts



Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night`s Dream"

In Lithuanian!

Lunch at Statoil


Chinese tomato soup and fitness chicken

Gard and Nikki in Kvinneguiden

Hmmm...seems like we are always looking for publicity. But for the record...I was approached by Kvinneguiden...not the other way around :-) You can find the article at http://www.kvinneguiden.no/magasin/reiseliv/topp_5_reisemaal-/55628

Roar and Whitney are visiting

Roar and Whitney came to visit today. I made portobello mushroom wrapped in parma ham for starters, chicken in tomato, lemon and garlic (see http://dinmat.aftenbladet.no/Finn-oppskrifter/Oppskrifter/Middag/Fjærkre/Kylling/Kylling-med-tomat,sitron-og-hvitløk ) and for dessert tiramisu (see http://www.nrk.no/programmer/tv/frokost_tv/4430232.html ) and chocolate fondant. We had two different valpolicella wines and for dessert we had a sweet dessert wine (Pellegrino Passito di Pantelleria Liquoroso)



Nikki bought a new camera



Frøya is keeping me company today

Green Thai prawn curry for dinner

This was an amazing dish and with the right ingredients you can a real taste of Thailand. Here is the recipe: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/greenthaiprawncurry_88606.shtml . We made the curry paste from scratch and I'm sure it works great with chicken as well :-)

Nikki made pap and wors

This is one of the traditional dishes of South Africa. We didn't have a real wors of course...but an Idsøe sausage acted as a pretty good replacement.



Postcard from Mie

She had a week in "Syden" as we call it...a week of sun, beach and summer in Rhodes. Tickets can be really cheap this time of the year when school starts



Great day for flying


Nikki is coming home from a day trip to Oslo and it is pouring down :-(
