Soft kitty, warm kitty..
Oven baked fresh cod,
steamed asparagus beans,
mashed sweet potato,
soy sauce and butter sauce with
fresh garlic and chilies
Vidar finds it a bit annoying that
I need to photograph our dinner

Today Vidar and I went on a field trip with my mom and sister to gather some free dinner:
We're truly a group of fine women
- especially Veronika eating her carrot
and mom with her banana
I need to schmear on some fake tan pronto
Our journey took us
through the neighborhoods

.. little did they know about our plan...

Making a fire - Thai style
Mom sure should know how to
- considering that's how they prepared all
their food when she grew up
Then mom sent Veronika to the top of a big mountain to gather chives for our food:

So freakishly delicious with any kind of sea food:
fresh chilies, garlic, mint, lime juice
fish sauce, vinegar
Veronika grating carrots
and beetroot for the
makeshift som tam salad
Mom's Thai in Norway version of som tam,
with carrot, beetroot, tomatoes, asparagus beans
chili, garlic, fish sauce, lime juice etc.

And then we all took a nap:
