Pølser pølser pølser...

Sausages! Salsiccie, sosisser. De hvite de brune de rosa de røde! I drew red danish sausages once for a norwegian magazine (here) and swedish blonde boys and sinnataggen! But now its pølsetime again, this long and thin guy that nobody wants to know what he is made of ! (and if you try to tell me I close my ears and go DADADADADA) Did you not-norwegian-people know about this, that you can eat sausage with a cake! A waffle! And its fully legal here in Norway! I rest my case. Norway I told you before. I love you. Now even more.

My giveaway is still on! Enter HERE for a chance to win They Draw and Cook book!

I have been in bed for a week. Moaning. Driving my boyfriend crazy (neida!). Craving feel-sorry-for-myself-food. Do you have some food you can eat only if you are ill, or (if you are a girl) if you have your period? Mine is ice-cream, fudge and bad-pizza. But now I am fine, no more feel-sorry-for-myself-food.. wait, that`s a reason to feel sorry for myself!

I could show you some disgusting pictures of my throat too...just kidding.
I think I will need lots of this, and antibiotics.

Cookbooks #3

Ok so you remember my cookbooks #1 and #2 right?
Here is a cookbook which I dont really use for recipes. It is a witty italian cookbook written in 1891 & it is as much about food as it is about italian culture, full av anedoctes and tasty recipes.
If you can read italian, please do it in the original language, otherwise english will do (don`t know if they sell it in norwegian) It is from Pellegrino Artusi and it is called La scienza in cucina e l`arte di mangiar bene - you can find the english version here.

(and if you feel like buying yourself an early christmas gift, here are some beautiful classics)
