The last days have been very mixed. We had good weather and it has been very blustery too. We have had rain, thunder and lightning but sun too. Ecky and I used the sunny afternoons for visiting the fjord or lets say it this way: Ecky knows the way to his favorite beach very well and drags me there.
Last weekend we met our friends I, J and Lexie. M & J did some kayaking together. After that we finished the day with a few thick Norwegian pancakes called Sveler. They’re a bit larger than American pancakes and the ingredients include e.g. kefir and ammonium bicarbonate. Usually they’re eaten with creme fraiche and jam or brown cheese or buttered and dusted with sugar (nutella fits perfectly too). This recipe is quite nice and very easy to prepare. Sorry, it’s just in Norwegian.
Then we prepared a nectarine cake with heavy sour cream but without a bottom, just a few bread crumbs on the bottom to prevent it from sticking to the pan. *yummy* Ecky had problems resisting to steal a piece from our plates… 😎
Then on Sunday I went picking raspberries. We found a spot where huge garden raspberries are growing and within 10-15min I’d picked about 1,5kg. Tomorrow I’ll drive to Stjørdal to pick more raspberries. There you must have an appointment and they’ll reserve a part of a hedge depending on how much you want to pick. I’m planning to pick 10kg. – It’s good to have two freezers.-
When Ecky isn’t going swimming he enjoys to snuggle with his hero aka M or to empty with cheese filled Kongs.
Our little otter
In the last 3,5 weeks we have been missing one of our best and dearest friends. She needed some time for herself after an event unfortunately didn’t work out as planned. It was a huge drawback for her which is just too understandable. She wanted some space to sort herself but we’re really worried that she may not find her way back to us. We have tried to be with her even though it’s difficult due to the distance. She wanted her peace and we didn’t bug her, now it’s her turn to get in touch with us. We really hope to hear from her again. ASAP!
