Welcome to my blog.

After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general, especially my travels).

Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
Japanese food.
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
I was lucky to be back in 2015, 2016 and 2017 thanks to the fact that we now have family living in California.
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.

I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).

I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!

I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

Creative weekend

This weekend I went to a market in Oslo to sell my kumihimo jewelry. I always bring the mobidai to show people that I´m actually doing this by hand - and this is a big surprise to them.
Anyway, it was a nice day and I sold a few bracelets, talked to a lot of nice people and braided some cords. I´m working on some bracelets for legs, that´s always popular in the summertime + I made some earrings.

Here´s some new stuff:

And this is the market I went to:

Sadly, being away doesn´t help my garden.... and it´s been raining quite a lot the last week. I hope for some sunny days this coming week, in that way I can make up for lost progress and get my garden in shape. At least the tomato plants are still alive, with some flowers!

Earrings in the window (on chopsticks - they´re so versatile!)...

Så bra at det var en ny fin dag på Blå! Fotsmykker var en veldig god idè :)
