Fridjof

Published by under Meg og mitt liv

- a tame magpie that we rescued from starvation and the numerous dogs that run loose through campus were we found him, bobbing along on the lawn, lethargic and dizzy. He learnt how to be fed from human fingers in a couple of hours, and soon started to gain weight…now he’s about 5 weeks old (we’ve had him about 3 weeks), very tame, constantly hungry, flies around in the house and begs for food and/or attention ALL THE TIME. He does this by either; 1)  jumping on to your head/shoulder/the hand you’re typing with, whilst 2) shrieking straight into your ear or 3) pecking/pinching at the places on your body were it hurts the most (the skin between your fingers, on your temples, earlobes, etc). So we make him fly around  outside  to let out some steam, he’ll peck at the window when he wants to come in, and if I can’t see him when I want him to come home, I just have to call his name – if he isn’t too far away to hear me calling he’ll fly over to me immediately (whilst screaching furiously. It warms a mothers heart). We hope that he’ll be able to tend for himself by the end of the summer.

We’ve fitted some sticks on the top of our wardrobe for him to perch/jump around on, with lots of newspapers on the floor to catch his  poop. By now we’ve been relatively lucky; he hasn’t done any considerable damage to furniture, but let’s just say that we cover up our white sofa with blankets and towels just to be safe. He is a flying poop-machine, afterall.

Sloppy sushi

Published by under Meg og mitt liv

Typical. Of all the times I’ve made sushi, the first time I have a camera at hand, my rice turns out too loose, and the sushi got really sloppy. It was delicious as always, but I’m not too pleased with the pictures. But I’ll post them anyway, I’ll just have to give to photoproof from the next sushi dinner that I CAN in fact do better.

I looooveee sushi. Salmon is my favourite; with avocado, cucumber, and a crazy, totally not authentic mayo-scallion-srirachasauce-mix. It adds just a hint of creaminess, spicyness and crunchiness that I adore, and frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn if it’s not authentic.  My next food project will be to make my own pickled ginger because in the store a tiny less-than-a-cup-sized-jar of ginger costs outrageous 20 Kroner! (~ 4 dollars!).  The fact that my boyfriend can’t help himself from munching the pickled ginger as a snack sans the sushi, makes it too expensive to not try and make it myself.
