The Girl Who Ate Everything

Blogging about food and whatever since 2004.

remember when...

...I was in Norway?

mountains everywhere

I left Norway a month ago. A month! IT'S ALREADY BEEN A MONTH! And what have I accomplished in the past month? Oxygen restriction! Seriously, what have I done? [shakes head]

Let's remember one of the most beautiful places in the world, shall we?

Long way down
tube bacon
I still have an extra tube...what the hell do I do with it?!
Helloooo my smoked fish pretties
Helloooo cake of Bergen!
I have absolutely no clue where this is
butter and cheese
They're serious about their butter
banana spread
But do eat this
Or this
mm, bun of deliciousness
And this
I love these cute little cobble-y streets
It's more crowded at night

In case you've only started reading my blog in the past month, here are the entries I wrote about Norway:

June 9, 2006: this is norway
June 10, 2006: this is norway: day two
June 12, 2006: still in norway: day...three and four?
June 14, 2006: still in norway: day five...six...huh?
June 15, 2006: goodbye norway
June 17, 2006: norway reviews and roundup

Best vacation. Ever. I sure miss those weegies. [sniffle]

The norway posts were a lot of fun - I love when bloggers go on holiday and don't stop writing and taking pictures.

/green curry...yum

How to recover from Norway blues:
You have until tonight to fly over to Hawaii and have lunch with Tristan and I on Tuesday. COME!!! It will be ONE MILLION times more fun with you - and think of the variety we can order...dumlings, baos, tarts, sticky rice, mango pudding, tapioca, steamed cakes, duck egg porridge... I can't afford the plane ticket, but can offer you free housing :) (and all the scones you could want...sweetened, of course, lol). Is that enough incentive? :)

Hey, the plaque is at the place where we camped when we went fishing.

As for beauty, you should come with me to Aver�ya, the island where my last name comes from and where my family is from. You haven't seen beauty untill you've been there. Or actually, you have. Bergen is best. Of course :p

Anyway, still up for a joint foodie-site? :)

look on the bright side robyn, you'll be in paris quite soon! (i think?) that'll be a whole new adventure :)

maria~ / July 17, 2006 11:42 AM

Love, love, love the pictures. I can't wait for your Parisian adventures! ;)

Ted: I don't think I can go on vacation without my laptop! For better or worst. :O

Kathy: OH MY GOD!!@!#!@#


If only I could fly over right now! You and Tristan will have lots of fun; you're two of the nicest people I've ever met. Seriously. Together you'll give off this insane friendliness aura. Or something. And you guys can eat a lot! Hahahaa!

Scones!!!!! (sob)

Adalmin: They don't make em like that over here. WHYYY? I want marzipan-y cake!

Morten: Oh yeah, I know where the place is, but not...WHERE the place is. Like on a map. ANd I don't know what the name is, hehe. :O [insert something in norwegian]

OH YEAH, BERGEN IS THE BEST! Next time i go to Norway you can direct me towards Aver�ya. :)

Joint foodie site? UH HUUUHH! Of course!

Serena: That is a very bright side, even though I'm kind of terrified that I'm going to a place where I don't know anyone or anything about the place...crap!

maria: Thanks! I hope people there let me take plenty of photos!...although I'll probably come off as an uber-annoying tourist.

Hey maybe since french women don't get fat, maybe they also don't get athsmatic! (Being athsmatic myself I know how crazy it can be) If it weren't for my degree in nutritional counseling and nursing I would be up on the eastside with george (Weezy). And I agree with you, not everything needs medication.

Liz / July 17, 2006 4:28 PM

Love thhe final street scene. Have to say- that cake looks like it has a cherry tomato on top :P

Helen / July 18, 2006 1:18 AM

Fab fab photos. Both in subject matter and exquisite sharpness. Have always wanted to go to Norway. It looks gorgeous!

Nico / July 18, 2006 2:27 AM

Is that ham and bacon inside those tubes? mmm...I'll stick to Norwegian brown cheese instead (with great butter!).

Claudia / July 18, 2006 9:05 AM

i'm pretty sure i left a comment here unless it's gonna show up as a double. anyhoot, i remember those norway good times...i open up your site only to be greeted by sights of norway and such. and a joint foodie site with morten will only attract more foodies!!!!

roboppy / July 18, 2006 10:42 AM

Cat: I'm using my inhaler less these days! Kinda. And by that I mean once a day instead of twice. Ehh, slight improvement!

Liz: Thankfully it didn't taste like a tomato! Or else I'd gag.

Helen: Thanks! I want to go to Australia. :)

Nico: It's ham and bacon mixed with cream cheese or something like that, hehe. Maybe I should keep the tube I have and try it out, despite the warnings I've received not to ingest it. Eeek.

Claudia: I should revisit the good times in a monthly basis, hehe. It'll give me the excuse to reminisce and post photos of waffle stacks.

MORE FOODIES! That's what we want.

Claudia / July 18, 2006 12:18 PM

hey not related to the post or anything but i was wondering how many pieces of fruit were you eating on the fruitarian diet majiggy

Cat / July 18, 2006 1:26 PM

Sorry to comment twice, but I have a question... (In this heat and humidity you may not notice a difference) Are you eating enough protein? Because if you aren't, your bronchial tubes are going to be more likely to restrict, because the muscles aren't being fed. (Also, your doing your body a disservice, because no protein means sloooowwwww metabolism) Even just adding soymilk or nut butter or egg whites to your meals and snacks can help alot. (But be careful, some vegetarian sources of protein pack a huge caloric tahini) feel free to read this comment and delete it, it's super long

YO! Hey I played clarinet too! Now i'm marching saxaphone cause...I don't like clarinet anymore. But anyway, guess what! I'm going to Drum Core International i'm psyched.
Oh, and that banana mash up there o_o It must not taste very good... I usually like to freeze the bananas first before I eat them. >.YO! Hey I played clarinet too!

Claudia: The amount of fruit I eat varies. At lunch, maybe three a banana, a peach, something else. I'll also snack on dried fruits and nuts. For dinner I could eat...a banana, a peach, something else, 20+ cherries, and then...later, maybe MORE cherries/peaches/whatever else we have plus nuts and stuff. It's a lot of food. :O

Cat: I think I'm eating enough protein. Or rather, I'm not worried about it. I'd think that most people get more protein than they need instead of not enough, hehe. I don't think people know how many nuts I eat...more than the average person. There was a time when I may have eaten less protein, but it didn't make my asthma worse. Also, it wouldn't really explain why I got asthma when I was younger and ate plenty of protein. My metabolism, as far as I know, has always been slow. :\ When I just ate raw food it was slow and when I eat "normal" food it's still slow. So...well, I can't blame one thing for my asthma.

Patty: Awww PATTY!

Nii: One of my bandmates played the clariner in wind ensemble, but the saxaphone in marching band. I tried to learn saxaphone, but didn't really get into it. Too heavy, rawr! ;P But I'd wanna do drum line, despite lugging, huge drum things. That seems like the coolest instrument to play. In my band there was only one girl in the drum line and she, cymbals? I dunno. Anyhoo, hope you have fun!

The mashed banana was just odd. Like...why did someone invent this? It's too hard to just eat a banana? Baby food tastes better.

Robyn / July 18, 2006 10:42 PM

You ate Norway for a week and pretty soon you'll be devouring Paris for, what, six months? I don't know,it just doesn't seem ... fair, somehow.

roboppy / July 19, 2006 9:31 AM

Robyn: Nope, it's not fair. But I don't get to eat my way around southeast Asia! ;) Is that fair? I WANT A BANANA PANCAKE!!!
