November has arrived to my kitchen with many comforting dishes to be cooked and mulled wine to be heated. I've actually put up some seasonal lights already, as November is very dark here in Scandinavia and those lights cheer me up. Now let's have a look at some of the new things and cookings in my kitchen.
We went on a lovely little city break and cruise to Norway's capital Oslo. I just love that city, even though it was quite a rainy weather while we were there. I added some photos from that trip below, and also our food haul. I had to get my favourite chocolate milk from Litago with that cute cow artwork. We also bought FISK, a drink made from a blend of eucalyptus, menthol, liquorice and vodka, Finnish chocolates with salty liquorice candy, Fisherman's Friends and Kinder Bueno chocolates. When in the north, there will have to be a liquorice theme, we are crazy about that stuff.
Now to some further shoppings at home in Copenhagen. The colour of Innocent's Blue Spark juice containing apple, guava, lime, coconut water, spirulina and vitamins, really caught my eye and it's actually very tasty. My partner said that it looks like the water that you get when you clean paint brushes, but he also liked the taste.
I bought some excellent Mexican products: Mexican oregano, refried black beans and hot habanero sauce. I've been using the dried Mexican oregano for quite a while now, and it has nice and intense oregano flavour. I was first suspicious of those refried black beans, but they taste so nice, are cheap and make an excellent quick weekday meal with for example tortillas or nachos. Here is depicted my partner's refried beans and cheese wrapped in a carrot tortilla. That hot habanero sauce tastes so nice too and can be added to so many different dishes. I'm really happy with all these products and will keep buying them, as I often cook Mexican food.
I recently made these pasties and tomato tart with new ready made pastry. The triangle pasties were filled with cheese-onion-potato mash filling and the rectangular ones had a rice, carrot and pea protein filling.
Here's also a comforting pasta bake with bell pepper, tomato sauce and cheese.
Sherry from Sherry's Pickings is hosting the In My Kitchen event again, so I'm sharing this post with her. Go and have a look at her blog.
Have a great weekend everyone!
