Cookie party

Yesterday, Elisabeth and Martin finally coaxed us out of the house. We made the short walk up the hill to their house for coffee and cookies. Norwegian tradition holds that you should have 7 kinds of cookies at Christmas, and Elisabeth kept the tradition. We played games until late, a fun evening. Thank you Elisabeth and Martin!

Today, Kirsten and Roger's invited us for a cookie party, drawing us far out of the house. We enjoyed a lamb stew and dozens of deserts -- yet another fantastic meal. They also had a kransekake, a stack of rings made from powdered almonds. You break pieces off the bottom ring and it slowly gets lowers. The rings are chewy and good. MMmm...

Thanks Kirsten and Roger!
