The west coast of Norway is well-known for two wet things.
It's a blessing to have fresh salmon, trout, mackerel, cod, and shellfish at our fingertips. On the other hand, an entire month of August filled with rain; and a September that seems to be no different, becomes a drag after a while. No wonder I've been getting so much "domestic" work down lately...
On the other hand, when you're handed a perfectly lovely, sunny Saturday with visitors from Oslo and Dublin, it's nice to have a couple of home-baked specialties to serve them in your garden. And to think we were going to take the patio furniture down the day before!
