Out in nature, preparing food.

With spring here and summer fast arriving, we are spending alot of time out at our cabin. Two hours south west of Trondheim, near the sea. A cosy, though primitive place where we have to walk to get water from the well, and cook over gass because there are no electricity (not that I mind gass, but home in The Blue Café I'm always using electricity). The kitchen is small, and has no oven for baking, but I love to cook there. And I love it mostly when I am able to prepare most of the meals outdoors.
Saturday was no exception. We planned a barbecue, and a barbecue for us almost always starts with me making a potato salad. Chives from the cabin garden, a few undressed potatos, olive oil and salt, and you have the most tasteful salad. And of course I must not forget the sprinkling of fresh air and sea salted winds.
I try to take all activities outdoor when we spend our week-end at the cabin. Very restaurants around the world can be compared with the view from our terracce, no chef in the world has better background music than the hundreds of singing birds in our surrounding trees. And after long days outdoors, what is better than nights with games and comfort.
