dinner time

Another week filled with delicious food has gone by.

Monday – Jamabalaya

JambalayaAs far as I know it’s a dish from the southern states of America: Rice, vegetables and shrimps.

Tuesday – Dinner at Madklubben (the food club)

MadklubbenWe went out to celebrate Niller’s and Morten’s successful business co-operation. Madklubben spoiled us with lovely appetizers and really good lamb. For dessert we went down to the harbour and had some Belgian waffles and softice.

Wednesday – Pasta Salad with Tuna

IMG_3578Not knowing if we would get fish when going to the summerhouse in the weekend, I had to squeeze in another fish-dish. Love the colored pasta, makes me happy =)

Thursday – Lasagna

First night at the summerhouse we got lasagana, silly me forgot to take pictures. Let’s help your imagination with some adjectives: yummy, cheesy, meaty, … and there was lots of it!

Friday – Grilled Salmon

SalmonBirthe (Morten’s mom) and I were co-operating here. We made grilled salmon stuffed with zucchini and lots of herbs, a nice summer salad and a dip based on greek yoghurt. For dessert Birthe surprised us with meringues filled with rhubarb and lots of whipped cream. Did you notice how we got fish on fish-friday even though we weren’t fully responsible for the dinner plan?

Saturday – Chicken Kabob

BBQOne of the best things about summer is grilled food. Morten had a blueberry beer for dinner. Later when playing a game called Bet your Brain we had some lemon cake covered with chocolate.

Sunday – Bagel

Okay, we cheated once again. No soup, but a bagel. No picture. Oooh, I’m bad…

Hope you guys had a week filled good food as well!


dear diary

Morten and I have been at his parents’ summerhouse for the weekend. Root hates traveling so he stayed home and had Sanne coming over to give him food and keep him company. What we didn’t know was that Root keeps a diary. Here a little extract:

Friday

Dear diary, today I enjoyed lying in that woman’s lap. She gives me yummy food and cuddles with me. I’m rather fond of her so I decided to teach her some of my hunting skills. I hunt flies. Well, I showed her again and again but she didn’t seem to be a natural. So after several tries I gave up and just finished the job alone. She fed me some vitamin pills, at least she thought it was vitamin pills. They were in fact my favorite candy. I scored three!

Saturday

Today, after a long tour of cuddling on the sofa, that woman brushed my fur. Now it’s even shinier than before. I love cosmetic treatments! We also played for a while. Then I got tired. I went to sleep. Kinda felt watched.

dinner time

My food post, finally! I’m very excited to show you all the things we’ve had for dinner the past week (I’ll skip Monday as we only had hangover pizza, bad pizza, bad!). Hope you’ll enjoy!

Meatballs with potato salad20 minutes – Tuesday: Meat balls with spring onions and a potato salad with cucumber, radish and green pesto dressing.

RoastbeefWednesday’s surprise: This week neither MOrten nor I surprised one another. It was Morten’s dad Ole who invited us over and served roast beef, potatoes and fried onions for us.

Almost MoussakaTomato – Thursday: We had a dish called ‘Almost Moussaka’. Zucchini with ground beef, tomatoes, homegrown thyme, lots of garlic and feta cheese.

Brazilian Salmon StewFriday’s Fish: This amazing recipe I found on Simply Recipes, a food blog I just recently discovered. Nicely cumin-marinated salmon with tomatoes, onion, bell pepper and coconut milk served on brown rice.

Mac & CheeseS.O.B. BurgerYummy/Deluxe Saturday: On our date, I had Mac & Cheese and Morten had an S.O.B. burger. It was fun eating at Hard Rock Café!

Broccoli Cauliflower SoupSoup – Sunday: We ended that delicious week with a broccoli-cauliflower soup.

Well, I hope you all followed Sam’s advise on eating before reading ;-)

If you have any question regarding e.g. recipes, I would be happy to answer them!

weekend

It’s finally weekend!

So many good things are happening today/tomorrow:

1. Brinja is coming home from a 20 days vacation. I’ve missed her sooo much and I’m so looking forward to long hours of talking and laughing!

2. Harry Potter is in the movies and we’re gonna see it tonight! I love, love, LOVE Harry Potter, the books as well as the movies. For the past weeks whenever there was the trailer showing on tv I would switch to another channel, because I didn’t want to see anything before I actually see it in the movies. I get goosebumps just thinking of tonight =) Obsessed? YES!

3. Morten and I have been togthether for 2½ years. 2½ amazing years! I love, love, LOVE Morten (a teensy bit more than Harry). We’re gonna go out and have burgers =) At Hard Rock Café! Is there a more romantic way to celebrate your day than with burgers?

Morten and Susi

4. Tomorrow is Sunday which means I can finally do my post about our dinner plan! I’m dying to show you all the delicious things we’ve had for dinner this week!

5. I got tagged by fabulous Sam and lovely Gabbi. The bloglandbond is getting stronger day by day! Thank you guys for sharing precious moments of your life with me, and that goes to everyone out there. Who ever created blogging gets a virtual hug from me right NOW!

HAPPY WEEKEND TO EVERYONE!!! XO SUSI

9 to 5

For over 2 weeks I’ve been summer-jobbing at Brinja’s boutique and as much as love working there I must admit, I’m just not a 9 to 5 girl. Okay, the work times are actually from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and to a lot of people it probably sounds like heaven. Problem is: I get up kinda early (around 7 a.m.) but other than workout and a bit of grocery shopping I don’t get a lot done by the time I have to go to work. In the evening when I get home ‘hungry Morten’ is waiting. After dinner there’s an hour of lying on the couch followed by some work on the computer. At 10 p.m. my body asks for rest, so I’ll read a bit in whatever chick book I’m reading (right now it’s Marian Keyes – The other side of the story) and the day is over.

When I first moved to Danmark I was working for the post where my workday would start at 7 a.m. Since I was super good at my job I would be done by 1 or 2 p.m. That’s much more me =)

So should I ever get done with my studies I better look out for a 7 to 3 job. Let’s hope they excist in that industry ;-)

Later I will tell you guys about my weekend plans. Soooo looking forward to the weekend =)

headband update

IMG_3483I lived up to my expectations: I made exactly 12 headbands, here in nice blue shades. Funny detail in this picture: The prints on the wall reflecting in the glass counter. The talented artist is Lea Bolvig, a friend of mine and Brinja‘s brother‘s girlfriend.

yellowheadbandHere is me showing off a yellow headband. Love that color. Should you wonder why I’m back with my old glasses: I’m kinda experiencing some problems with the new pair. Not so clear after all…

 

brinja’s flower headband

Here you can see a finished flower headband. I found the picture on Brinja’s blog under the category shop! So many good things to find there =)

purple headband - BRINJA

I’m already behind the sewing machine again. Another 12 headbands is my goal for today.

Note: the machine smells of basil, very distracting… ;-)
