The weather cast had earlier this week said it would be 19 degrees and no rain yesterday. So I thought I finally would be able to go out and take some pictures yesterday. Waking up at 8 o’clock and realising it was all wrong, was a major disappointment. It made me rather moody to see the clouds and the rain! Would it ever stop raining?
So, what do you do when it doesn’t stop raining?
Watching TV is a good idea. I watched lot on BBC Lifestyle, one of my fave channels to watch. They have programmes about interior/design, food and renewing yourself clothes-wise. Three things I love! I watched What Not To Wear with Trinny & Susannah. Ah I love that show.
There was a short while where it didn’t rain. I took that time and went out to the strawberry field we got. Field? uhm.. it’s four rows and each are like 3 meters. More like a patch than a field maybe. I picked two bowls with strawberries. It never ends. I went up to the neighbours (Linda’s parents) with one bowl. I thought it would be nice to give them some. Terje was there too. He has vacation. I was there for quite some time, at least an hour. It was very nice.
When I came home I went to the grocery store. I had planned to make soup/stew for my parents and there were some things I didn’t have; like saussages, leek onion and some more potatoes. I started on the soup/stew as soon as I got home. It’s quite some work to make that dish. Lots of chopping and peeling. But the end-result is always good!
In between making the soup/stew I started baking raisin buns. I’ve been wanting to make that all week. I bought this pack on monday with a flour-mix. You just add water, yeast and rasins. Very easy. Yesterday I finally got around to make them.
I must confess I didn’t use that baking bowl to make the dough. I only put the dough in it to get a cool picture. haha. I used a ugly brown one that comes with the kitchen machine I used.
The baking bowls are new. I bought them on tuesday when I went shopping with Linda at Bjørkelangen. Three bowla in different sizes for only 149 nok. Great buy! I’ve been looking for bowls like that. And i had found some, but they were way more expensive than these! I guess the sallest one had had looked at cost about the same as these three together!
This is the end-result. The buns are looking great, ay? They are huge! And they tasted delish. I have to bake buns like these more often. It doesn’t cost much and it’s yummy. Esp. yummy if you cut them in half and add butter and brown cheese on them. Ohhh. That is very delish.
Right now, it’s not not raining outside. It’s not sunny, but at least it’s not raining. I think I better go outside and look for todays door. I have one in mind, but I’m gonna go see if there is ossome other door that is better! Today will be my 26th door. Quite cool and impressive I have to say.
