Friday drink at "fru Burum´s" has been covered many times in this blog. So also this evening.
The special announcement this Friday is only the portrait of myself with the black pirate looking protection of the stitches closing my eyelids.
I am not ashamed of my look, and may be someone also find it .................
You never know.
Back home the dinner was prepared for enjoying a great Norwegian Miracle
Once a year a miracle takes place in the Arctic Ocean. Between January and March the Norwegian coast is the scene of one of nature's most magnificent events. From the enormous, nutrient-rich grazing areas in the Barents Sea in the north, the arctic cod arrive by the millions, migrating into the spawning fields along the wintery coast of Norway.
This cod, which when spawning is called skrei, the goal is the area by the beautiful and fascinating island kingdom of Lofoten, about 400 km north of the Polar Circle. In the Barents Sea, the skrei has spent at least five years maturing to adulthood. It is then sexually mature and strong enough to make the long journey from the ocean far in the north to the coast of Norway.
The "skrei" is cod in its prime, full of energy and fertility.
The traditional Norwegian preparation is simple: fish, liver and roe (each in a separate pot) are poached until tender in boiling, lightly salted water and served with boiled carrots and potatoes. Served with red wine, you are close to heaven when finished your meal.
After this delicious Friday meal, we serve home made Pizza tomorrow.
