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.

More nice things from MONOme...

I´ve decided to get a pair of earrings for my birthday from MONOme, because I love the pairs I´ve got already soo much. I use my mint green earrings almost every day.

I decided to get these (mini-me helped to pick them):

And since I was customer number 200 in Hilde Irens shop I got to choose a free item...
I got both a necklace and a pair of earrings:

They´re a gift, but to whom is a secret!

Hilde Iren is very nice, so in addition to all the other free things she even made the cutest necklace for my little girl! Here is the happy girl with her new rose necklace:

Look, she pierced her ears!
