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!


countryside heaven

After a night of rain, rain and rain, the sun is now shining as if nothing’s ever happened. I love summer rains.

Today I feel like showing you some more pictures from our trip to Germany. For those of you who don’t know Rügen, let me tell you, it’s countryside heaven! We have it all: beaches, forests, lakes, one tiny little river, mountains (okay, hills) and fields that don’t seem to end. After our trip to the miniature park, dad decided to show us two big farms that still function as farms but at the same time they’re kinda touristy. There’s cafés, you can ride tractors and you can walk around and go pet little animals.

IMG_3324There were little kittens everywhere. Me and Morten, who were missing Root very much, went totally nuts about them.

IMG_3314Meet the farmers! We could totally run this  place!

goatsAnd then there were those adorable goat babies, I call them goatsies, that could barely walk and yet tried to ‘attack’ each other.

IMG_3329Morten and I enjoyed this day so much. We love each other, can you tell?

IMG_3336To finish off an awesome day we would have a classic German BBQ: sausages, potato salad, a green salad and beer.

IMG_3334Morten always says, ‘Germans try everything to make their beer not taste of beer.’ Here you see wheat beer flavored with grapefruit and prickly pear (hope my translator did a good job here… ‘Kaktusfeige’ is the German word).

All in all a perfect day!

Tomorrow, it’s my 1 month anniversary here in the blog world – a very exciting event. So far I can only say that  I love it. I got insight in other peoples lives and talents which inspired me in a way. I’m not the most creative person but the fact that I have my camera with me every day and get to take pictures of my life makes me really happy. Blogging makes you look out for the small treasures in life. 

Lina, whose blog always plays the most adorable music, tagged me to write about things I like about summer time. Being tagged kinda makes me feel special, I love those little games here in the blog world. It makes us get to know each other even better =)

5 things I’ll enjoy this summer

1. Classens Have

31257We’re so lucky to live in a big city as well as to wake up to birds singing every morning. Our apartment complex frames one of the green parks here in Copenhagen. I’m looking forward to lying on a blanket, reading a good book next to Morten and enjoying the sun in Classens Have.

2. Rügen

ruegen-panorama-kalender-2008-081200px-Rügen_Panorama800px-Insel_Rügen-Strand_von_Sellinb60afb87a8I’m looking forward to visiting Rügen, Germany’s biggest (and most beautiful) island. This is where I grew up, this is where my parents and my bestest friend Stephan live, this is where there’s so many undiscovered things waiting for me. Do you know the feeling of tourists knowing your home town/place better than you? This summer I will return as a tourist and try out all the things that back then seemed too ‘touristy’. I’m excited!

3. Friends

IMG_2874IMG_2665IMG_309317-01-09-002skac3a6Being with my friends is going to be the biggest treat this summer. Coming to a new country, I found it difficult to find new friends. After one and a half year of living in Denmark I can proudly announce that I found the greatest friends ever: Stephan (okay that was cheating, he’s been my friend forever, and he’s from Germany, I know, I know), Morten, my true love, Kristian, the most talented athlete and referee ever, and last but not least, beautiful Brinja, a girl that truly gets me. 

4. BBQ’ing

Meet Gregory Grill, our lovely Weber grill. He’s already brought hours of joy and tons of good food to us, and I’m positive that this year he will once again combine point 1 (Classens Have) and point 3 (friends) and make this summer really special.

5. My summer job at Brinja KBH

img_1941skalimg_0603skalI’ve been a proud member of the Brinja KBH family for over two months already and I’m so happy to send its lovely owners, Brinja and Anders, on a well-deserved trip through Europe while I’m taking care of the shop. 

Wow, that post really made my longing after summer grow even bigger. Fortunately, it’s only two ore weeks until I’m done with my exams :-)

I’m really eager to see why you can’t wait for the summer to begin! I’m tagging Brinja, Sam, Lea, Gabbi, Nicole  and Natascha!
