An important part of cabin lafe is the food, or actually the meals. We always eat simple when we are at the cabin. With no electricity and no indoor water it is not easy to make gourmet food. But simple and plain food is often the very best. Last week-end the blueberries were ripe, and the girls were busy every day picking blueberries. They loved eating them as dessert with suger and cream, or as jam. When are you closer to heaven than when you eat hot pancakes with fresh blueberry jam. Pancakes is usually not a breakfast dush for us, but two mornings I was up early and made pancakes for the girls. And for us :-) Sunday morning we ate out on the terrace.
We love fishing, both in saltwater and in fresh water. Often the fishes we get are just small trouts, perfect to be fried in the frying pan and eaten for a late supper. Doesn't this meal look inviting? I always think that a plain meal at the cabin is worth several visits at ****restaurants. At least untill we have to start the washing up.
Visiting friends is another way of enjoying food. Saturday evening we were invited to good friends who also have a cabin at Aure. To a bacalao evening. Do you know bacalao? It is a Spanish/Norwegian meal made of dried cod and potatos. Spiced with alot of Spanish pepper. I love it. And a big pot is needed of course. The kids are not very enthusiastic about this diah though, so the son in the house barbecued sausages for Marta and Mathilde.
Another perfect day at our beloved cabin!
