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.
