oh, we've got a long, long way to go

I have been so productive today you have no idea. My mum and I cleaned out our big wardrobe we have upstairs. It is supposed to be a wardrobe you can actually walk into, but it has not been for...well let's just say for quite a while. We cleaned out the whole thing, which has taken all day, and filled eight garbage bags with just plain shit. Excuse the expression, but there's no other explanation than that. Anyhow it is all nice and neat now! This is what I ate for lunch by the way. Mackerel on crips bread with cherry tomatoes and an omelette with mozzarella cheese, avocado, leek and fresh basil. So yummy. Today also felt like the first real day of spring! Finally. 

tres tres chic

This is my new favorite thing in the world. Mix a frozen banana with some frozen raspberries and a little bit of cottage cheese. Serve with some crushed walnuts. It is so smooth and yummy and fluffy at the same time. It was delicious. It was perfect for a gloomy friday afternoon like this one. If you don't like raspberries simply replace it with blueberries or strawberries or any other berry frozen fruit! By the way, aren't my little pastel cans that looks like french miniature boutiques. I found them at a flea market last summer! Adorable.

strawberry chocolate bananas

I thought I'd show you what my sister, her boyfriend, my friend and I did a while ago. We started a fire while up at our camp and made these delicious looking bananas. Simply put fresh strawberries and chocolate pieces in a banana, wrap in aluminum foil and put in the fire for approximately 10 minutes. It came out so soft and gooey and chocolatey and absolutely fantastic. Think about the long summer nights when you can have a bonfire outside and make these! When you can sit around the fire wrapped up in blankets and enjoy the summer. I am thinking it will be perfect for the San Francisco trip I'm making! Can't wait.

it's a wonderful lie

I just had some more pictures from spring break I wanted to share with you. I think they're so cozy. The first picture is the view from our window in our camp. Beautiful right? I miss it already. I want to not stress over school at all times, getting my driver's license or working out. I want to do it on my own terms and when I feel like I have the time and will to do it. Unfortunately that is not possible. However I have started watching Gossip Girl from the beginning again, hence the name of this post. Even if it not helpful whatsoever for my studies or anything I love watching it, in four days I watched two full seasons of it. That is approximately 20 straight hours of my life I spent watching a tv-show. Sweet.

double zucchini avocado cream lunch

I made this up the other day when I had to eat lunch. I know it looks absolutely weird but it was so good! And guess what else? It was eeeeasy to make as well! Take one half of a zucchini and slice it into half an inch thick pieces. Fry for a few minutes on each side until golden brownish. Mix one avocado, a couple of cherry tomatoes, one teaspoon of red pesto, half a cup of cottage cheese, some salt and pepper. Serve with couscous and raisins, decorated with fresh thyme. Delicious!

crazy yellow people walking

Breakfast in bed is undefeatable. Doing nothing productive whatsoever, just being lazy forever. Scrambled eggs, granola, yoghurt, cottage cheese, almond flour, raspberries, brie cheese on crisp bread with rhubarb marmalade, grapefruit and orange juice. Freggin delish.

apple crumble cardamom pie

Here's the apple pie we made up at our camp. It has lemon peel, lemon juice, raisins and cinnamon in the apple filling and cardamom in the crumbles. It goes so well together! The raisins doesn't really affect the flavor it only makes it luscious and juicy!

1 dl sugar
2 dl flour
1 dl rolled oats
1 dl raisins
1 tsp ground cardamom

4 apples
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp potato starch
1/2 lemon (peel + juice)
2 tsp vanilla sugar

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius.
2. Mix all ingredients for the  crumbles in a food processor.
3. Cut the apples into pieces and mix with the rest of the filling ingredients.
4. Put the filling in a pie tin and crumble the crumbles on top!
5. Bake in the oven for approximately 20-25 minutes.

ain't no mountain high enough


We climbed two mountain tops with our skiis when we were up at our camp! It was awesome. So tiring but definitely worth it.


The weather was straight up wonderful the whole time.


We sat in our cabin talking, playing board games and watched movies.



We ate delicious homemade apple pie!



As I said, the weather was great.



Goggle-burns are where it's at.



the easter bunny left pastel polka dot easter eggs

I spent my Easter up in the mountains at our camp
, with my dad, brother and friend. It was absolutely wonderful! We had an easter egg hunt, painted eggs, and ate delicious easter food (whatever that is). We have been downhill skiing the whole time up there. And tanning (our faces) of course. That obviously led to the hideous goggle-sunburn. It looks like my face is dirty. Oh well, it is mandatory after all. I don't mind really. I absolutely love Easter with all of its pastel colors, the beautiful weather, the easter eggs full of candy and the skiing. Love it.

overnight crushed wheat bread

This is the simplest bread you'll ever deal with. I made it at 9 pm on a school night a few days ago. The next morning I had freshly homemade bread in 15 minutes - on a school morning! Freaking awesome! It is fluffy and luscious and healthy and delicious. Try it!

50 gr fresh yeast
10 dl water
2,5 tsp salt
2 tbsp honey
4 dl whole wheat flour
1,5 dl wheat bran
1 dl crushed wheat
9 dl spelt flour
9 dl wheat flour

Do this at night:
1. Crumble yeast in a LARGE bowl. It will rise a lot.
2. Add salt to the yeast and let it melt. (The salt starts a chemical reaction that makes this happen!)
3. Add lukewarm water and mix.
4. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix to loose dough. Do it by hand and not in a kitchen machine.
5. Cover with a kitchen towel and put in a cold place during the night.

Do this in the morning:
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees celsius.
2. Put a lot of flour on baking board and carefully pour the dough on it. Don't knead it!
3. Carefully make a rectangle out of the dough. It is important that the air doesn't come out.
4. Cut the dough into four stripes and each stripe into five pieces. It is absolutely fine if they're uneven.
5. Put the unbaked bread pieces on a baking sheet and bake for 15-17 minutes. It is supposed to get a real good crust! Let cool on a rack. Eat!
