I was on a minibreak in Oslo in Norway. I took a cruiseship from Copenhagen up to Oslo and back, and admired once again the amazing Norwegian landscapes. Here are some photos from the trip, and also some items I purchased there.
Litago chocolate milk was one of the main reasons visiting Norway again. I just love this little cow character, and the milk is pretty good too.
I haven't been able to find Gran Luchito products in Denmark yet, but they seemed to have some in Norway. I took this tomatillo and jalapeno enchilada cooking sauce with me, and very much look forward to cooking a Mexican feast with it.
I got some Finnish chocolates and liquorice on the ship.
There was also a good offer on Fisk, a classic spirit. It is made with a mixture of vodka, eucalyptus, menthol and liquorice, so good and punchy.
I also bought some special Norwegian craft beers to be enjoyed later at home.
I bought a very cheap toast and panini grill for my kitchen. I've already used it a lot in the few days that it has been with us. I think it's very handy, and makes a really tasty toast. Here are some super tasty cheese, tomato, garlic and fried onion toasties I made with it a couple of days ago.
It was Shrove Tuesday and the lent has begun. In the Nordic countries it's a tradition to eat a lot of creamy shrove buns before the lent. I was too lazy to bake this year, so I just bought a ready dough for croissants and filled them with strawberry jam and cream. They were also a quite nice version of the Shrove bun.
I recently cooked a vegan spinach and lentil green Thai curry. It was a really tasty dish.
Here are also recent cheese, onion and potato pasties I made.
So this was my kitchen in March, looking forward to more spring cooking soon. As always, I'm sharing the post with Sherry from Sherry's Pickings, who is hosting the In My Kitchen blog series.
