Waffles for lunch with cheese and ham in the batter- mmm… tasty 😊🥞

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

As some of you know one of my best friend, Natasja, visit me after work this week, and I wanted to give her some tasty homemade Norwegian food with a “touch” of “the lunch- feeling”. Then it became waffles with cheese and ham in the batter/ mixture 🧀🥓.

It’s tasty, delicious and fill up your stomach 😊. And well worth to try. This is something you easy can bring to work in your lunch box too, or just enjoy at your home office, or together with family and friends 🥰.

I actually made two waffles batter/ mixture. One ordinary and one with ham and cheese. Just in case Natasja didn’t like my “lunch waffles” with ham and cheese 😊. And Norwegian homemade waffles are in general not wrong, and in general “a safe winner” 😊.

My ordinary Norwegian waffle recipe: ( around 10 “waffles plates”) 🥞🥓🧀

2 eggs and 1 dl water – whisk together.  4 tablespoons sugar, 3 dl wheat flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 dl sour cream, 100 g melted butter.  Mix everything together into a fine and rich mixture. ( I actually also did have a tiny bit pepper and oregano in the mixture- just to spice the waffles up a bit.)

Then mix in 150 g ham, cut into pieces, and 200 g grated cheese.

Spread a little butter on the waffle iron and fry the waffles golden.  Eat and enjoy 🥞.

You can also put the waffle batter in the fridge for a while.  Sometimes I make waffles once the waffle batter is ready.  Other times I make the waffle batter the day before and leave it in the fridge to the next day.  I think the waffles taste just as good anyway, – while others think the waffles are best after the batter has stuck in the fridge.  But as you know – the taste is like the butt, it is divided 😊.

To the ordinary waffles I did served different jams, butter, sugar and cinnamon 🧂.

To the waffles with the jam and cheese I did served a mix of onion and paprika mixed together with Greek yogurt, homemade garlic dressing, potato salad and tomatoes. I also had s bit Spanish omelette, just in case 🥘.

Norwegian homemade waffles spiced up with ham and cheese in the batter 🧀🥓.

The waffles with ham and cheese was not to bad, they was in their own way tasty, and like I mention, good to use as lunch, special together with something else like a creamy cheese or potato salad or maybe boiled eggs. But I need to admit that the ordinary and original Norwegian recipe for homemade waffles is the best. And Natasja was agree with me in that case 😊.

It was the first time Natasja actually tasted homemade Norwegian waffles, and just to make it a bit extra cozy and create a nice atmosphere I took out the waffle iron into the patio and fried the waffles outside in the lovely Springsun.  Fresher waffles than that I do not think it is possible to get 😊🥞. And the best thing, Natasja actually did like the taste of homemade Norwegian waffles 😊.

In general I like to try my best to create a nice and cozy atmosphere around me, and special when I have guests. For me it’s my way to show that I really presage my guests, their company and the time they choose to use together with me, and I want them to fell welcome too 🥰.

So when Natasja came to visit me we had a lovely time outside in the sun, made waffles outside, drank tea and had some very value conversations as well as good laughs 😊. A nice afternoon in very good company, like a kind of “refill” of energy 😊. Something that’s necessary,- and I really hope you have some great friends that give you a “refill” of energy now and then 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡.

See you soon 😊

I like to try out new things, and this time I did try to mix ham and cheese into the waffle batter/ mixture 🥞. It tasted good, a kind of great as lunch together with something else. But,- to be honest, my original and ordinary homemade Norwegian waffles without cheese and ham inside is still the best 😊. But the best thing with this waffles afternoon was the company 😊🥀.

Oh, I got more glassbottles and I didn’t need to drink the wine either 🍾🥂😊

Hi ❣It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Like some of you know I like to paint on glassbottles like for example winebottles, beerbottles , cavabottles and a bit more 🎨. But since I don’t drink different kinds of alcohol very much myself I can have a tiny challenge to actually get different kinds of glassbottles to paint on 🍾.

My daughter did actually had a back bag with her on the New Year Party she was at in the new year evening 2020/ 2021😅. And brought home different kinds of glassbottles to me 😊. But my basket with glassbottles are starting to get empty again 😳. Then what to do?Start drinking a lot or send my daughter to a new party with a back bag on her back? Or actually invite my best friend Natasja to visit me and ask her to bring some empty winebottles from her cafe in La Cala? 😍 I invited Natasja 😊.

Look at my soon empty glassbottles basket 😳😊

It’s not totally true that I actually invited Natasja to visit me so I could get more winebottles. It’s over 3 months since we had met, and I really do miss her. And at the moment the city borders are open, so I invited her to visit me for a nice chatt before the Easter is showing up and the city borders are closing down again for the Easter. And I also wanted to give her the glassbottles I have painted to her 🎨. Hopefully we can met up a bit more then every 3 month after the Easter 🥰.

It was after I had invited her it actually did dropped my mind that maybe she could have some empty glassbottles of different kinds after her guests in her cozy cafe. And she had,- actually a bag of empty glassbottles to bring me 😊. And PS,- if you are in Spain and La Cala, – it’s worth to visit the cafe Case Barella for some great and tasty food, good drinks and a very cozy atmosphere 🍔🍷.

I’m very happy for all the empty glassbottles I got from Natasja, but I’m more grateful for the visit 🥰. It was so nice to see her again, hug her, chatt up, just spend some really good quality time together 😊.

It’s strang how this corona- situation has changed out social needs. Not the habits, but our needs. Our social habits are in so many ways controlled by different restrictions, something that also, of course, changes our social needs. But I should think and believe that we would get an ever stronger and bigger need to “meet up” when we had the chance? But it’s actually not quite like that for many people. It’s, unfortunately, the opposite. For many, including me, and some of my friends too, it’s more difficult to “move my ass” from my sofa and home and socials then it was before the corona- situation.

I’m not sure why it’s became like this, because it maybe should be, like I mention, the opposite? It can be different reasons like use of mask, or worries for the coronavirus? I don’t know.

But I know I’m very grateful that Natasja wanted to visit me 🧡. It was so great to see her again and talk about about “all and everything”, and actually not to much about the coronavirus. It’s really good to take a break from that “subject” now and then. And we are good to take a break from it and find some other, better and more interesting subjects to talk about instead 😊. I’m so grateful for having her in my life and for this vist and “timeout” 🥰.

And now I can take my own break too from the “corona- situation” and “drop” down in more winebottles and paint and create and be creative 🎨.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Look at this,- a bag filled up with empty glassbottles or different kinds – just ready to get some new illustrations from me 🎨

My basket with glassbottles is starting to get empty, but after a lovely visit from one of my best friends my basket is filled up again with a lots of possibility for me to be creative 🎨. But the best thing was still the visit, a great “timeout” with good chatts, laughter and great conversations together with my friend 🥰.

Look at this “sweetie pie” 🐶 🥰

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I haven’t dressed up many dogs in my life, just my son’s dog, Zorro. And I haven’t knit very much to any dogs either, except from a couple of scarfs to Zorro 😊.

My son wanted his dog to have similar scarfs as himself, and of course, if I can manage to fulfill my son’s wish (as well as my two other children’s wishes) I try to do my best to meet his wishes 💙.

I need to admit that I haven’t actually totally understood this special connection dog- owners have with their dog until my son brought Zorro into our family 🐕. At the same time as I do understand people who have animals and their love for their animals.

My kids had have different kinds of animals when they grew up. But at the same time I haven’t felt that an animal was a part of the family in the same way like I feel my children are part of my family ❤. Do you understand what I mean?

I understand people has strong feelings for their dog or cat or any other kind of animal, but it’s actually not before Zorro “entred” into my life the I really understood why people look at their dogs as a family- member 😊. And I also do understand why my oldest son wanted a couple of similar scarfs to his dog, because his dog is a part of his family, and Zorro is not just a part of his family, but also one of his best friends too 🐕.

I have friends that have dogs, dogs that I actually have been “dog- sitting”, looked after and taking care of when my friends needed some help for that. But I have never had any special strong and warm feelings for their dogs. I have just accepted and respected that they have this feelings for their dogs, and took as good care I could for the dog with no good or bad feelings in my heart. Just taking care of 🐕.

It’s sounds probably a bit cold and frezy, but I have probably just been very neutral in my heart for the animals 💛. Like I have mention before,- some people are animal- persons and some people are people- persons.

I’m a people- person, nothing worse than that. And I’m probably never going to get my own dog either, but as we all know,- you should never say never 😊. But I feel I’m very finish to have any kind of any responsibility for anyone else then myself for a while now 😊. Not any people, not any animals, not even a tiny little goldfish to take care of 🐠. I just want to have the responsibility for just me,- and I think that would be more then enough for me for a while too 😅. But it’s good not all and everyone is like me 😊. And one thing is for sure,- if you get a dog you should really take good care of it, love it and raise it. And I’m not there in my life now. But luckey many other people are 🥰.

One of my daughter’s closest friends has a tiny little dog, and the dog’s name is Zelda , she is a female 🐶. I did knit a scarf, hat and elf- socks to my daughter’s friend because she deserved a tiny little “attention”, and of course I needed to knit something to Zelda as well then 😊. So I knitted a tiny little blanket and a scarf in similar colours, style and fashion as I knit to my daughter’s friend 🧶.

Zelda with her knit scarf and blanket 🧶🐶

Look at her, so incredibly sweet. She looks a bit like a little diva or a queen 👸. And I also think her “mam”, my daughter’s friend, treats her a bit like a tiny little princess now and then too 👸🐶. Something that it’s natural because she is a part of my daughter’s friend’s family 😊.

Well,- I’m actually starting to get the tiny “swing” of knitting dog- scarf and blankets to dogs now 🧶So maybe I should try to knit some dog- clothes too? I need to think a bit about that one 😊. Maybe I should try to knit some baby- clothes first? A friend of mine is expecting a baby during this summer and I’m going to knit some baby- clothes to her baby 😊. But it’s many years since I have been knitting baby- clothes so I should probably try to do some of them before I starts on a “dog- clothes” project 😊. What do you think?

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Look at this little princess Zelda on her knit blanket and with her knit scarf 😊.

I’m starting to understand more and more this family- connection a dog- owner has to his or her’s dog 😊,- and also why maybe some similar “outfits” is fun to use together with the dog 🐶. So therefore I have knit a tiny little dog- scarf and a blanket to this little “sweetie pie”, and also something similar to the owner of this “sweetie pie” 🥰.
