I just taught my 58yr (retired) husband how to poach eggs.

His first attempt, sliced tomato (instead of bread), smashed avo, crumbled feta and eggs. He did good, the eggs were poached correctly/cafe worthy.

You need to stress test him by doing the 7am shift for 4 ..... knocking up school lunches and arguments about who's feeding the dogs :)

No kids and no dogs. His only stress in life is the stock market and someone wanting to use the same lane at the pool 🤣

We are staying at the Gloppen Hotel in Sandane - about 260 Km north of Bergen. Tonight we decided to shout ourselves a nice meal at the hotel restaurant. Almost all of the produce is sourced within about an hours drive of the town. It was all absolutely delicious and every course had a lovely fresh taste.

A starter plate of flatbread, bread, herbed butter and sea salt.

Cheese board - we shared. It included a variation on Camembert, aged cheese and blue cheese - which he described as the best in the world. I thought it was a bit of local hyperbole but he was correct. Norwegian Blue Cheese Crowned World’s Best Cheese

Finished off with local, naturally, blueberries and raspberries and ice cream

Dinner at Kasap Dursun, Istanbul.
I only ordered a skewer but all this food arrived. First some starters showed up then the meat off the skewer. The head waiter could see I didn't know what to do with it so he showed me how to assemble the main. He even came back a bit later to check on my skills and had a bit of a laugh. After the meal a complimentary tea was offered. IMG20190904200459.jpgIMG20190904201213.jpgIMG20190904201305.jpgIMG20190904204344.jpg
