A tribute to the condors

They may not be as pretty as parots or paradice birds, but they are very graceful and much needed on the planet.

Pinnekjøtt (Salted lamb ribs)

I'm coocking Pinnekjøtt for the first time! :oD It is super easy really, but I usually eat it in December and it is made by my mom or my mom-in-law. ;o)

Yesterday as we were shopping in dinner and grosseries we saw that they sell Pinnekjøtt. So we decided to begin Christmas a little earlier this year. ;o)

Traditionally Pinnekjøtt is huge on Christmas Eve in the western parts of Norway. Here in the Estern parts we eat roasted pork ribbs instead. I grew up with pork ribbs, sausages and mom's medisterkaker, but when I tasted pinnekjøtt I fell IN LOVE! It is sooooo tasty!

All you need is salted lamb ribs. (500grams per person). You lay them in a bath for 24 hours so they get watered out properly, because they are really salty...

Then you put some birch sticks (or bought sticks) in the bottom of a kettle. Fill water so it covers the sticks, then place the meat on top. Let it boil on low heat for about 3 hours. (Until the meat loosens easily from the bones).

Serve boiled potatoes and mushed rutabaga.

Ellen could need some help from you.

Through my pen pal in the US I got this e-mail about a woman researching pen paling. I wrote an e-mail to her and I got a questionaire that I needed to answer on my computer, and send back to her.

If you would like to participate you can write to her at this address:

"My name is Ellen, I’m 36 and from Belgium. I’m a sociologist and anthropologist. At the moment I am trying to obtain a PhD degree. Therefor I would like to research penpalling. I chose this topic first of all as it is something which not a lot of research has been done about yet and secondly because I am into penpalling myself."

I think it is a very interesting topic and I am glad I am one of the 500 that she can give her exam/ report on. :o)

Father's day card

Tomorrow is Father's Day in Norway. I made this card for my dad. It says 'for dad'. I like the picture as it reminds him of my birth ( I hope). ;o)
