Kitchen Maus challenged me to make a fish soup at 11 p.m. Who am I to say no. Besides her food photos had made me really hungry.

First foccacia to go with the soup. 1litre allsorts flour, 50 gram yeast, 1/2 liter luke warm water, 1/2 ts salt, 2 ts brown sugar, 2 tablespoon olive oil, black seedless olives, cheese and sea salt sprinkled at the top.

Vegetables for the soup, carrots, potatoes, celery root, red onion,
leek, green pepper, frozen herbs after your liking, herb salt,
whole, sweet fennel. One rich liter of water, cod for 4 persons,
crabsticks and 1/3 liter of cream.
The fish should not boil, but draw for 25 minutes.
Same time as the foccacia should stay in the oven.
Bon appetite.

Norway is a small country situated at the outskirts of Europe, under the Polar Circle, with 6,4 million inhabitants.
In contrary to the rest of Europe we have twice chosen NOT to be a meme of the EU.
That doesn't mean that the great nations leave us alone. Recently they have forced us to replace the old traffic warning signs with new ones. This sweet one showing a boy and a girl on their way to school. I always identified with this sign when I was a small school girl with red ribbons in my braids.

No horse riding on this path, children and cyclists only.
My father crossing the road in a 1950 outfit.
Crossing place for deers. Let's hope they understand the sign. Too many deers and moose have been killed this winter.
Here the basketballs are buried for the winter under the EU approved sign. A sexless figure with its balloon head unattached too the body.
I wonder how will they get the balls out of the bottle?
