Last but not least... The food

My first night in Bergen, Kevin made me kjøttkaker, totally from scratch.  He's a really good cook. 

Here is a traditional Norwegian breakfast -- bread, cheese, meats, jam, etc.  And don't forget the Nugatti !!

When Esther and I went to Norway in 2001, we went for a hike one day and on the way, stopped at 7-Eleven for a snack.  I got one of these hot dogs, filled with cheese and wrapped in bacon.  We still joke about it any time we are together and/or going on hikes.  (who needs trail mix?)  So when he suggested we stop and get a hot dog at 7-Eleven, how could I say no?  Soooooo good!

Kevin's neighbor works for a bread company and brings over leftover stuff sometimes.  He brought over this Easter cake/ marzipan kake.  Notice Kevin has a fork ready to dig in.  However, he took one bite and said it was too soggy for him, so guess who finished it?

People asked me if I had any cupcakes while in Norway.  Why would I eat a cupcake when I could have one of these...? I forgot how amazing these boller are!!

Here is the cod that KB caught, with some fish soup and potatoes.  Yum!!


Kevin's friends have a condo here...

It was cold!  We watched a ski competition for a while, but had to leave to get some hot chocolate... just in time to miss his friend's run.  But we said we saw him anyway.

Gone Fishing

 A little walk from Kevin's house, there is a little spot on the fjord where he likes to go fishing.  Since the weather has been so good, we went a few times.  And by we, I mean that he built a fire and went fishing while I watched and drank Diet Coke.


He caught a few fish the first day, but threw them back.  But the second time, he got this cod and this one was a keeper. 

Here is my attempt to get a picture of us together.  

Take two.  I sat down really hard on the bench and it broke. 



Here are various pictures of the little island where I'm staying while in Norway...

When I arrived, the water was still frozen, but within a week, it was mostly thawed.
