Feeding the birds

I love Rio's face here

I'm trying to do the Norwegian thing and bake my own bread. Norwegians love their bread. They have opened-faced sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. In our house we top our bread with caviar and hard-boiled eggs, liverpate, white cheese and veggies or chocolate-hazelnut spread! Yes, chocolate for breakfast! Ben adds mayo too. YUCK! Anyway, forget the low-carb diet here! It would be impossible for a Norwegian to give up their bread.

So I'm trying to be a good Norwegian wife and mom and bake it myselft, but I am FAILING! I've given at least 3 loafs to the birds. But feeding the seagulls and ducks makes for a fun Sunday evening activity!

It looks so beautiful there Cortina! Good luck with the baking - those seagulls are so lucky to get your homemade Norwegian bread!

Hey, don't sweat it with the bread. I've REFUSED to bake bread my entire adult life. Come join me in that club! ;-D
Boller, on the other hand..... Let me know if you need the recipe.

Cortsa! As I am reading your post my 1st EVER cake- a lemon-blueberry cake-is beeping and ready to come out of the oven. I have decided to become a baker as well and I am hoping it turned out o.k...
