My traditional foods!

 When I talk about my traditional foods, it means that I made it the way I learned it from my home country Philippines.

This is fried rice which I made for lunch
The ingredients: Diced left over meat from turkey, onion, garlic and egg


Whipped egg and fried as omelet


Fried garlic and onion

Mixed all the ingredients with left over rice in a wok pan and saute for ca ten minutes


Voila! I garnished my fried rice with sliced tomatoes and grass onions

Dinner
Bicol express

Ingredients: Coconut milk, shrimp paste, chopped ginger, onion, garlic and lemon grass


Brown ginger, garlic, onion and lemon grass in the pan

Add pork strips ( ca one kilogram) and fry until brown

Afterwards add ca half cup  of shrimp paste and one can coconut milk

Cook until the meat is done .Add salt and chili pepper .

Garnished with chives because I didn't have green pepper



WEll, we have to eat the traditional food here in Norway. This was last Easter.

We were invited by mother-in-law for dinner one day. She served cream baked potatoes

Roasted lamb

half cooked brocoli

with gravy

and the best: Fruit cake with cream

Hope I didn't make you hungry:)

Love walk!


I called it love walk because my husband was with me. 
It was one sunny, but still cold day when we went for a walk. 
This is the place where we live...our paradise on earth.




a bird has it's own paradise up in the tree


no flower yet   in this flower bed

Fire station near our house

We were going to a place called Bruholmen


This sight captured my attention because it looks like three crosses.
 Reminded me of Jesus and the two criminals besides him.

In front of us is Bruholmen

I wondered what happened to this tree?


Not so green here yet

My shadow

I liked the color combination of the sky and the meadow

The view to the seaside

ferry boat going to the other side

This is one of the place where we take a swim if the weather is nice and hot

other side, you can see the city


Love bench


and a place to grill hotsdogs or meat:)

or maybe  just enjoy the scenery

or find something special like this shell that was stuck on a tree

colorful rock

dried mushrooms


water reflection 

on the road

The sky was blue when we began our love walk

but the weather changed afterwards and  the sky turned gray


Anyway, the walk  refreshed us and made us hungry:)

Leaving you this prayer that I posted in Facebook today

Thank you Oh God that you had given us chance to know you.
Believe in you, 
so that we don't have to fear your wrath or judgement 
I pray that we will always act in reverence to you.
To trust you. 
To love you, as you loved us.
To find joy in your presence.
To walk the walk of faith.
I pray in Jesus name.

JOY
