Let's go back....seven months. I was in Norway. I'm still writing about it. Refresh your memory with day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4, and day 5. (O_O) The food just kept coming. And coming. And...coming. Until Morten, Kåre,...

I visited Norway from February 12 to 19. Yeah, that was three months ago. ...Yeeeaaah. Brown cheese time. First meal of the day: brunost on bread. No trip to Norway is complete (and perhaps no Norwegian is complete) without brunost...

This post originally took place on October 1. Read more about Weegie Week (aka "Week with my friends Morten, Kåre, and Behnaz, who were visiting from Norway") here, here, here, here, here, and here. New York City is a sweaty,...

Morten wrote a post about our Per Se experience at Upop.no...in Norwegian. I asked him to translate it to English so I could share it with y'all. You can check out my post about Per Se for more food porn...

This post originally took place on September 30. Read more about Weegie Week (aka "Week with my friends Morten, Kåre, and Behnaz, who were visiting from Norway") here, here, here, here, and here. Fromage de tête There's something about a...

This post originally took place on September 29. Read more about Weegie Week here, here, here, and here. Per Se, so empty by the time we finished our meal. We hobbled out of the Time Warner Center around 2 a.m.—hobbled...

This post originally took place on September 28. Read more about Weegie Week here, here, and here. I'm gonna eat you, and you, and you. ...And you. The first and last time I willingly ate a variation of hot pot...

This post originally took place on September 26 and 27. ...Good lord, are we really only on day two and three? Was my post about day one really two weeks ago? Fail. I spent a few hours trying to write...

My Norwegian friends Morten, Behnaz, and Kåre visited New York City from September 24 to October 2. I skipped a few months of unblogged material to jump ahead to Weegie Week, which in turn will probably take another month or...

Shake Shack = happy weegies! While I'm not one to set goals for myself (because goals = POTENTIAL FAILURE; also, I'm a crap role model for kids), I have foolishy not abandoned all hope that I will catch up on...

[Warning: THERE IS NO BIRTHDAY FOOD IN THIS ENTRY. That will come later. Maybe October at the rate I'm going. On the bright side, I'm 2/3rds of the way done with a real entry about food. That should appear soon.]...

"Morten, there isn't any coffee coming out of the pot! And it's been on the stove forever..." I sat on the porch munching on something breakfast-like, paying mild much attention to what was happening on the other side of the...

[If you haven't read part one, you should do that before reading this entry. THAT'S AN ORDER!] SWEET! And then we found the holy grail. I mean, we found gelato. WOOHOO! Yom yom Here! I followed Morten's lead into K2,...

[A note of sorts: While I originally planned on making this one unbearably long entry, it was becoming unbearably long, thus I'm splitting it into two parts. I'm also getting sleepy because it's almost 2 AM. And it shows in...

I hobbled onto the front porch to see 75% of our refrigerator's contents strewn upon the table. I mean, neatly strewn about on plates and whatnot. Apparently it was one of those "eat everything left in the fridge and make...

You may recall that on day 11, Morten had a little microbial mishap with an unfriendly seafood dish. And by that I mean there was a lot of reserve peristalsis going on. And by that I mean he puked a...

"This was the day I just sat around and peed," announced Kåre as he elevated himself from the sitting position to make a visit to the little boy's room. Diana, if you're wondering what we did the day after you...

On the morning of September 20th, I made a mortadella, lettuce, and maybe-something-else sandwich. Sammich It basked in the glittery rays of the warm Bolognan sun. Oh, how it basked. Yes, sandwiches can bask. They're just like you and me,...

I could visit major landmarks. I could peruse famous museums. But you know what I'd rather do to expand my cultural horizons? Meat. Like. Whoa. Browse a local supermarket. Okay, maybe I don't want to "expand my cultural horizons" as...

[Note: Since these entries are not even remotely being posted around when they occurred, I thought I should let you know that this entry took place on September 16th. But it still feels like yesterday! Kind of.] The golden morning...
