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!


yet another herbal update

I’m as proud as can be! My herbs have actually been surviving for three weeks now =) And they’re greener than ever!

another herbal update

Anyone with a dark apartment and the wish to grow herbs in it, let me tell you: freezer bags are the best ever!

The only thing keeping me worried is thyme. Every single time I tried growing it, it would come out as the very first and die just as quickly. It’s barely holding up this time but with a daily portion of love and a nice talk every now and then its chances of survival are still there.

And in case you’re wondering, it’s basil that grows like crazy.

herbal update

So far it seems to work – my plants are growing. I guess the idea with the freezer bags wasn’t too bad =)

 I’m starting to dream of pasta meat sauce with the fine taste of basil, a summer drink decorated with lemon balm and a green salad topped with parsley and chives.

Mmmh yummy :-)

herbal remedy

For the third time within a year I’m trying to start my own little herbal garden. So far it didn’t seem like I have a green thumb, but this time I was super prepared. Preparation = the remedy for my herbs? I hope so! I will keep you posted!
