The “crossing” from 2011 to 2012 was of course not done without a proper feast. A sushi workshop / feast among good friends to be exact. It was so delish that when 12 o´clock rolled around, we glanced at each other, raised our glasses, then continued eating!

After a summer shorter than the lifespan of a fruitfly with bad genes, we (the lucky people of south-west Norway) are thrown head first into the rainy days of fall. I swear, the rain – it is nevereverending. We better get cheap electricity this winter!!

The soup has just the right amount of heat to it (for us westerners), and it´s the type of soup that everyone will like. Noah (my 2-year old) ate it too! And you´ll have dinner for a couple of days. What´s better than leftovers when you don´t feel like cookin´?
