What we have for Dinner in Norway during the dark and cold Winter

I will give you an insight in what we have had for Dinner the past Weeks here in Oslo. All dishes are prepared by Anna in our Winter Home. Wellcome to Dinner.

Another hot dish is Fish Balls in Lobster Sauce and Mini Carrots and Potatoes.

You know, a cat is not the only dish cleaner. This morning while I ate my breakfast, I looked away and was talking to Jack. Then I heard a little lick, lick, lick! Yes, Anneliese was trying to help me finish my butter!

Great. Above all I'd appreciate the recipe of Fish Balls in Lobster Sauce and Stuffed Tert Shell. Could you please send it to me? I love veggies and I'm very keen on tasting foreign meals.
