Foodie Friday - The Debut Post

Foodie Friday is here!

I'll be upfront and honest and say that on my way home from work this afternoon this was my thought: Oh crap. It's Friday afternoon and I haven't cooked anything interesting this week or tried any new recipes.  

So, I'll share with you the best meal of the week: Cheeseburgers. 

Frozen hamburger patties (way cheaper than making our own) topped with Synnøve cheese: 

We also cut up some veggies: tomato, onion, cucumber, red bell pepper, onion and lettuce... 

....and were able to build a delicious burger, complete with a glass of wine for the lady and a beer for the gentleman - perfect for quiet Friday night at home. 

Our dinner! (Note the heart-shaped bell pepper. Total accident but very cute).
Oh, and don't forget the Norwegian ketchup which, as legend has it (again, by "legend has it" I really mean "according to Stian") is the best in the world. I haven't conducted a proper taste test, but the ketchup here tastes like ketchup. 

I was hoping our shipment from America with all our kitchen things would be here by now, but it's not. We still have exactly 1 frying pan and 1 saucepan. The spatula you see in the first picture is one of 4 cooking utensils we have. It's fun, I guess, but I'm looking forward to getting a few more things to ease the cooking process. For now though, burgers and the like. 

I have to say I'm a little disappointed with the first Foodie Friday post, but the good news is that it can only get better from here. Stay tuned, I've gotten some really great recipes from people and I'm looking forward to trying them all. Next week will be better, I promise!
