In My Kitchen in November


My post for In My Kitchen this month is quite dominated by my shopping from Norway, and also much more sweet than usual. However the first picture with the double rainbow is a view from my kitchen at home. I didn't buy that much this time on holiday, but found some nice products to take with me back home nevertheless. I'm sharing this post with Lizzy from Good Things for this month's In My Kitchen edition.

I fell in love with this little cow character from Litago's chocolate milk cartons in Norway. The milk was very tasty as well, but don't you think that the cow in its wellies is very nice. 


Of course I had to buy some crisp breads, while travelling in Norway. It's possible to get quite decent crisp breads in the shops here, but the Scandinavian ones are just the best.


We also got some Ægir Brewery's beers and a beer glass to take home with us. I'm saving the beers for a while for a special occasion and the glass is really nice as well. Have a look a my Ægir post as well, if you are more interested about the brewery.





I got a big bag of Skolekridt, or better known as Liitulaku to me, liquorice sweets filled with salty liquorice at the Oslo airport. They are made by the Finnish company Fazer and they are already my childhood favourites. They look like actual chalk for chalk board, but definitely taste much much better!


Another airport buy was a larger packet of Fisherman's Friends that my partner likes.


Several bags of the veggie friendly Colin the Caterpillar fruit gums went to Norway with us as a travel snack. These fruit gums that also come as sours are very good, and I'm so happy that a gelatine free supermarket sweets range is available consistently in this country. I really adore Colin.


Recently my mum sent me some Finnish chocolate, Fazer's Salty Toffee Crunch in Milk Chocolate, and also some nice xylitol chewing gums. I've been enjoying these products very much.


A set of two vegetable tea towels from Ikea are also newcomers to my kitchen. New tea towels are always welcome here.


After a little while I again managed to find cloveless garlic, which I really like. It's quite a juicy and fragrant garlic variation, and also a little bit more convenient to chop, as there's only one larger clove.


Seasonal squashes in all shapes and forms have been in my kitchen and will continue to do so for a while yet. I've been cooking soups, stews, pasta dishes, anything really with them.





I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my kitchen.

    1. Thank you for hosting the event Lizzy! Cloveless garlic is indeed fascinating and I'm a garlic fan anyway. I also agree about the rainbow and the cow. :)

  3. That double rainbow is totally amazing. You captured such a perfect view of it. Your Norway items are very nice. We tried a few Norwegian supermarket items when we visited there a year or so ago. I love seeing everyone's kitchen collections. My Novermber kitchen is here:

    1. Thank you Johanna! I only ever see cloveless garlic in Finland, and now I found it in Norway, I don't think I've never seen it in the UK. It's really good though.

    1. Whenever I see a rainbow or a spectacular sky from my window, I drop everything and run to the balcony or outside with my camera. Sometimes I'm lucky like with this picture. :)

      I don't go that often to Ikea, but I just thought that I ought to check out their 2016 Christmas stuff soon.

  7. Thank you for sharing your double rainbow shot... it's gorgeous! I'd never heard of "cloveless garlic." (Definitely more handy than peeling each clove.) I also like your tea towels -- very cheerful -- and your bounty of squash.

  8. Anther gorgeous view from a kitchen window. You were lucky to capture it on film, it would make a nice framed photo. I had never heard of cloveless garlic either (mirroring other posts), sounds very useful. Autumn is definitely here with all those winter squashes.

  9. What a beautiful rainbow shot. The chocolate milk container is adorable, I could see my boys drinking lots of that! The veggie towels are wonderful, I will have to check our IKEA to see if we have them here.

    1. I think that cloveless garlic or solo garlic is more used in Asia, but it's just a different garlic variation. It's a bit milder than normal garlic and I find it therefore very practical and nice to use.

  11. What a beautiful view from your kitchen window, that double rainbow is gorgeous. I love you towels, especially the dotty one, from Ikea, I'll have to keep my eye out for those here in Melbourne. Cloveless garlic!? I can honestly say I've never heard or seen anything like it, do they grow them specifically or are they 'cloned'. You must love garlic, that seems too much for me to have in one dish :) Did you from those pumpkins, I mean squashes? They look delicious, I'm sure you'll create some beautiful dies using them. Lovely to meet you for IMK x

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! As I mentioned in the comment above, the cloveless garlic is a bit milder than regular garlic, so this piece isn't too much for a large dish. However I really do love garlic, so maybe I'm a bit partial here. I will have a peek into your kitchen as well. :)
