Late night treat.

We were away most of the day yesterday to celebrate a friend's birthday party. I had made no plans for any spesific supper, which was good after all the great food at the party. Our girls left is in the late evening to babysit two cousins, so there we were, we two "old ones" with a quiet night ahead of us.
I almost never watch television, and neither do I find time for dvds, but with nothing planned Terje and I decided it was time to watch a dvd which has been waiting for us to see for months. Some friends lent us Luther and told us it was well worth seeing. And they were right, it really was, though a 2 hours dvd is actually rather too long for me.

Stuffed with food from earlier in the day, and with the dvd waiting (I hate eating wood from my lap, a proper meal deserves a proper table setting and eating with the television turn OFF)I decided ti just make us a very simple and easy "late night treat". I baked a foccaccia and filled two plates with Birkebeiner spekeskinke (salted and dried ham) and a piece of melon. A small drop of French mustard gave the plate its finished touch, then a glass of red wine for me, a glass of fruit juice for Terje. Simple food can really taste good! And I had alot of energy left for crocheting while watching the dvd.


see you there! said...

Melon and some type of ham. A great combo.

I never seem to have much time for TV either but someone around here has been watching a lot of football. "Tis the season!
