Yet another nice October morning


Autumn / Fall 🍂

Temperature is dropping and the leaves are turning yellow and red… Yea, summer 2017 is over. Mushroom season is at it’s peak and the moose hunt is right around the corner.

Last Sunday people voted in the church elections (since the church was a state church earlier the political parties are still engaged today), in the news they reported that there was a voting record set (the highest since 1950 something) 18%.

Nettle soup

Yea, you actually can make a delicious soup with nettles as the main ingredient. Just pick the top leaves (or when the plants are really small you can take more) about four cups and boil them quickly. Change water (approximately 3 cups) and add two vegetable stock cubes. Bring it to a boil and then mix it. Taste it to see if you need more salt. 

I always poach a couple of eggs in the soup (one for each serving), and some like to add strips of chicken. Serve it with some sour cream and sprinkle bacon over.
