Food - at the summer cottage

Oh yes, we enjoyed our food out there. Out, literally. Everything was cooked outside and I think we only dined inside the cottage once, when it was rainy. Food tastes so incredibly good when you're out on the patio, you can hear the sound of the waves (and the mosquitos) and the night is getting dark. It's not pitch black here in Finland at this time of year, but we always dined so late (10 p.m. or so) because the days were so filled with stuff to do. Stuff more important than eating; like sitting on the stairs in the sun, taking a daytime nap, heating up the sauna, fishing, just enjoying it all. I think I need to get a bite to eat now.

Ruoasta todella nautittiin. Kaikki kokattiin ulkosalla, ja itse ruokailukin tapahtui ulkona yhtä sadepäivän poikkeusta lukuunottamatta. Miten järjettömän hyvältä mikä tahansa ruoka maistuukaan terassilla, aaltojen liplattaessa (ja hyttysten inistessä), kun ilta jo pimenee. Melkein joka kerralla ruokailu venähti iltakymmeneen, koska päivällä oli niin paljon muuta tekemistä. Tärkeämpää kuin syöminen; kuten auringonpalvonta, nokkaunet, saunanlämmitys, kalastus, ja ihan vain lomasta nautiskelu. Nyt täytyy lähteä jääkaapille.

  4. Oh, wow my mouth waters! I like to come for a barbeque at your place next time!

  5. The way the fish is being cooked! Fun and yum!

    1. penelope - Yes, the fish was yummy, indeed! We tried two ways of cooking it; the fillets were fried on the huge pan on the fire, and the whole fish were salted (and left in the fridge for a few hours) and smoked inside the smoking box on the fire. Dee-licious!

  6. oh yum!! I want to go to the cottage! It's a bummer about our knees isn't it? Tomorrow I will have some answers. I miss running. I can still walk though, so if it comes to that, I may have to walk for the race.


Take your time.
