This month we will keep the food Norwegian inspired and one of the best loved Norwegian dishes are their beef meatballs.....
This recipe serves 4 people.
Ingredients: 500g minced beef, 1 egg, 0.1 l milk, 2 tbsp potato flour, 200g finely chopped onion, season with salt, pepper, muscat nut and ginger powder
How to make: Mix the meat, egg, onion, potato flour and spices with a mixer for about 3 minutes. Then add the milk little by little and mix again until you have a smooth mixture. Put the meat mixture in the fridge for an hour. Form the meat to round balls (little larger then a golf ball) and pan-fry them until golden. Following this, you boil them in water for about 10 minutes or until they are finished. They should be cooked all the way through.
Gravy: Sieve the water you used to boil the meatballs in. The fry some onions in a pot and once golden pour some of the “meatballs stock” over. Let it boil for five minutes and gradually thicken with flour. Season to taste with salt, pepper and colour with gravy browner.
Serve the meatballs in the gravy and enjoy with new potatoes and seasonal vegetables

Something very different from yesterdays summer cabin post....
A cosy cabin deep in the woods in Northern Zealand, Denmark
that has been lovingly restored by the owners Stine and Henry
in a traditional log cabin style....
the walls are home to their amazing art collection.
Its no surprise that they spend all their summers here......
I am very excited as I have been invited
to spend in week in my friend's
summer house in Sweden this July.
I can't wait for swimming in the lake and
long summer evenings with lots of
chatting, relaxing & eating (Maria is a domestic goddess)
I am counting the days down.....
Here is some summer house inspiration

I'll be back later on today when it is all fixed.
I hope you had a happy weekend lovely readers ♥
P.S. I am trying to fix my 'blue' links too....
The chances are that you have seen this
as I found it over on Emmas amazing design blog
but I wanted to post it here as
it's very inspirational in many ways.
I love the white walls, the floors and all of that lovely Scandinavian light!
Enjoy lovely people!
