This month we will keep the food Norwegian inspired and one of the best loved Norwegian dishes are their beef meatballs.....
This recipe serves 4 people.
Ingredients: 500g minced beef, 1 egg, 0.1 l milk, 2 tbsp potato flour, 200g finely chopped onion, season with salt, pepper, muscat nut and ginger powder
How to make: Mix the meat, egg, onion, potato flour and spices with a mixer for about 3 minutes. Then add the milk little by little and mix again until you have a smooth mixture. Put the meat mixture in the fridge for an hour. Form the meat to round balls (little larger then a golf ball) and pan-fry them until golden. Following this, you boil them in water for about 10 minutes or until they are finished. They should be cooked all the way through.
Gravy: Sieve the water you used to boil the meatballs in. The fry some onions in a pot and once golden pour some of the “meatballs stock” over. Let it boil for five minutes and gradually thicken with flour. Season to taste with salt, pepper and colour with gravy browner.
Serve the meatballs in the gravy and enjoy with new potatoes and seasonal vegetables

When I first saw these pictures I thought oh my goodness, this is very almost how I envisage my eventual London house to be. This architects home is a fine example of my favourite Dinesen floors in a quintessential English period property. The furniture is beautiful and the detailing is just right. Perfect.
I am excited to have my close friends gather together tomorrow for a house warming garden party in my new London apartment. I am busy preparing some yummy goodies and stopping every now and then to water the plants or do a bit of work - and will in a minute pop out for an iced coffee ♥.....I am very lucky to have a Starbucks at the end of my road ;-) Okay so about todays post.....I've posted their work before, because it is simply divine. Here are some beautiful shots from Sisters Agency.

Progress is ongoing on our custom home being built on Lake Sunapee! The crew has worked through good and bad weather in order to hit a target finish date of July 1st. Check back for more construction photos and product descriptions!
