I reached one of my 4 simple goals: A passport holder!
|A vintage looking map of Africa|
|Covered in soft plastic for durability and protection|
|Ready for the ends of the earth!|
No plans of going to India in the nearest future, but Germany sounds good enough to me.
We watched videos of Julia Child for the first time tonight, and it was hysterical! This weekend we have a food festival in town, and Ingrid Espelid Hovig will be there for the opening ceremony. When I think about it, she must be the Norwegian equivalent to Julia Child. She has had tremendous impact on Norwegian cooking, like Julia had on American. Perhaps I will meet her tomorrow and discuss her vegetable soup. I made a version of it today, and tried frying the vegetables before boiling them in water, and I wonder what difference that frying does... Vegetable soup is one of the easiest things to make: just chop up whatever vegetables that you find in the fridge, boil water with some stock or spice and let it simmer till tender. And voilá, you have dinner! You should try it once.
