Yesterday's bbq and bonfire in the pine woods.
After the group had made their way through rain and muddy forest paths, we sat down in the tent sipping warming coconut milk infused with ginger and turmeric.
We served organic chickpea and cabbage burgers with tahini dressing, shredded carrot, mint and cabbage, topped off with sundried tomat&chili sauce, served in a fire roasted pocket bread.

All good! Many thanks to creative collaboratorūüėĀ @arnemh68

Some rain (a fair bit actually) wont stop Julianes Kokebok from hosting a bonfire and bbq in the Woods this evening.
We have woolen blankets, candles and lanters, hot drinks on the thermoses and we bring along a big batch of freshly made organic chickpea and cabbage burgers.
This evening's gathering is part of a three day visit from UIA's coastal research group.
I am fortunate to deliver all their meals whilst they are here.
Cooked from scratch, naturally.
Green, of course.
Organic and local where possible.

Highlights from the summer holiday. Good to reminisce about when wintery introspection slowly commence in some months..
Lazy mornings. Long breakfasts. Swimming endlessly, mornings ans evenings. Spending the whole sunny day on our nearby islands with good friends, relaxing and eating good food, once indulging in oven fresh pizza by the sea in the evening sun.
Exploring Swedens beautiful South East coast with long white beaches, meeting grazing cows and sheep on the meadows on the way down to our favourite beach. Good food enjoyed, especially the barolo risotto in the glass dome in the @mellby_klockargard, framed with plants, overlooking the fields and the shore.
And more.
Now. Ready!
Inspiration loaded.

The ugly, but tasty celeriac makes such good and super easy soup. Try roasting it and I promise it will provide a deep flavour full of character. Monday is soup day and will see me making roasted celeriac soup with harissa roasted chickpeas. Heres how to:

Bake the whole root in its own skin for 2 hrs, til soft and wrinkly (apprx 210C).
In a pot, add 6 dl water and 2 stock cubes, 3 potatoes and one leek, using only the white part. Boil until tender. Add the peeled and cut celeriac, and blend until smooth. Add 2 dl cream, warm through and its ready to serve.

Top with harissa chickpeas (ovenbake 35 mins 200C with 2 tbs harissa, some salt and 2 tbs olive oil)
For kids, try topping with dry roasted sunflower seeds, post dressed in soya sauce or top with some crunchy fried bacon bits. (Recommend roasting the celeriac the day before to save time) . . .

Why is change so hard?
Challenging oneself to focus on what one can gain, as opposed to what one will lose.
What would the world look like if we acted in accordance with the beliefs behind deep ecology?

The Deep ecology movements's first principle is that the living environment should be regarded as a whole, independent of its' use value for humanbeings.
Taking a holistic view; On humans being part of the ecosystem, with our ability to both create and to destroy, then responsibility should follow.

A fundamental shift in politics and law is necessary, and some are leading the way, such as the UK barrister Polly Higgins` proposal for ecocide to be recognised as an international crime.
Read more from the always wise, the brilliant Guardian journalist George Monbiot:

My partner and I once ran a green guest house on the island where we live. This document on deep ecology hang on our wall after a seminar we had with the late philosopher and deep ecology founder Arne Næss.

Proud chicken parents! I never knew chickens were such sweet creatures. To me they used to seem so unpredictable and characterless. But after two days of slowly getting to know our group of eight lovely chicken ladies, some Italians and some prydh√łns, I am totally in love.
Much like people; Once you get to know each other, everyone's interesting and you start caring for them.

And look at these pastel hued eggs!
We now tick yet another stereotype box as we live in a car free island community.ūüėĀ #pasteleggs #coolchickens #wannabesmallholder #landliv #levlandlig #sand√łya√•retrundt #julianeskokebok#nofilter #iwentintothewoods #carfree#islandlife

Tove Jansson's "The Island" :
"The mutating sea, the beach that rises and sinks and changes shape, everything that grows again in a new and surprising place, the way which the trees and shrubs withstand the storm, decay takes its natural course on everything one has built, and the pleasure of recognition and repetion. "
Mesmerized at the text, the prose. -Just read" The Island" , written by the brilliant Tove Jansson. Read the whole text here:

On our way home from the island school yesterday we fed the goats bunches of frozen green grass. After their escape some days earlier, where our daughter was chased around the school building, she has now befriended the goats again.
The road. Sand√łya. We have a relation. It is just like a dear friend. A friend you get to know better and deeper.

I love Hokkaido pumpkin! The flavour, the texture and the edible skin.
The skin, when baked with generous amounts of olive oil and several sprinkles of rock salt (ca 30 mins in the oven, 200C), actually takes on a resemblance to crispy chicken skin. #pumpkinlover #hokkaido

Aubergine er i sesong. Og det er ogs√• tomater. Det er to ingredienser som sammen med Parmesan utgj√łr en match made in heaven.
Aubergine er slettes ikke vanskelig. F√łlg bare min fremgangsm√•te f√łr du bruker den videre. (Bl√łtlegging er overhodet ikke n√łdvendig). Gi denne gr√łnnsakenes Rolls Royce en sjanse. Den fortjener den.
Gratinert aubergine eller melanzane alla parmigiana ligger etter mange √•rs kj√¶rlighetsforhold fremdeles h√łyt oppe p√• lista over retter jeg elsker. Gratengen er saftig, og p√• tross av de f√• og enkle ingrediensene, er den breddfull p√• smak.
Perfekt om man vil invitere en kj√łttelsker p√• p√• middag, og vise at gr√łnnsaksbasert mat kan smake himmelsk og mette godt. Glem ikke br√łd, gjerne focaccia, til √• moppe opp sausen.
Vi drev en gang et gjestehus p√• √łya, Maries Gjestehus, og da var dette en av v√•re popul√¶re signaturretter. Se bio for oppskriftūüĆĪ#melanzaneallaparmigiana #aubergine #vegetar #gr√łnnmiddag #

On our friday menu was pizza bianco with chevre and caramelised fennel and onion marmelade. However when we went to harvest the fennel in our shared patch, we found it in full bloom. This summer's draught has taken its toll on the livelyhood of farmers, and for us mere hobby farmers, we experienced a tiny, tiny fraction of their vulnerability to changes in the weather.
Large amounts of cauliflower and broccoli had to be thrown away.
So what to do with flowering fennel seeds? They taste amazing, and will be the taste enhancing pizza sprinkle instead. Both mangold and zucchini withstood the hard summer and thrived, and so the large amounts we harvested continually inspire new dishes. The mangold also has its place on todays pizza bianco. Simply heated up with some garlic, fresh chili and a dash of green olive oil swirled in, before placing it alongside the chevre and my new favourite cheese; √ėstavind, resembling a young Parmesan. Wanna try? Link in bio:)

We all have a connection with the road on Sand√łya. We walk, bike, ski or run, season depending. For the last 4 yrs this has been our eldest daughter's way to get to school. -A small island School with dedicated teachers who have enough time to see each invidual, and who teach with brilliance, creativity and compassion, thus providing them with a platform of security.
Our School is also a meeting place, a bearer of many traditions and seasonal activities that is appreciated by children and adults alike.
The road to School that they experience for their first 4 yrs of primary School have qualities we believe heighten our childrens Life quality. They meet familiar people along their way. They care for beetles they find, discover natural slides and spying huts, they pick flowers and find stone and stick treasures. It is the sense of freedom and adventure they have every Day.
It is with immense gratitude I see her off these last weeks of small Island primary School, ripe for the bigger mainland School in Tvedestrand. It is also with uncertainty I look ahead. Our School, together with the other small schools in the municipality, are never safe. Centralising is on the agenda.
Tvedestrand has qualities that could be built upon and I wonder why this value isnt seen, nor communicated: Small communities, small schools, afforable houses with gardens and proximity to both the sea and the woods, whilst at the same time retaining a reachable daily commute to the bigger seaside towns.

-Have seaweed, will use it! Our girl, the sugar kelp harvester.
One of the benefits of living on an island, is the immediate access to the sea and all the fun that comes with it.
Never tried before, we now will have a go at cooking with sugar kelp, this nutrient- and umami rich seaweed.
Any suggestions for recipes @thenortherncompany?

We had the crispiest and tastiest fish and chips dinner with our neighbour family last night. (super easy recipe for crispy batter further down). Just love it when the common weekday becomes a little more special by sharing dinner with friends. And cooking with my man is one of my ultimate pastimes, so happy I was! All the kids were playing around and fell exhausted into bed quite some hours later than the average thursday. Homemade fish and chips is so dead easy to make. It's the filleting and the frying that takes time...
Recipe for batter that makes fluffy, crispy crust:
- 200 g white flour
- 1 ts baking powder
- 3 crunched up crispy breads
- salt and pepper - 3 dl sparkling water
- 3 eggwhites
Mix the dry ingredients, add the sparkling water and mix gently. Whisk eggwhites until almost stiff and carefully fold into the batter. Ready to go- It's frying time!
I guess we had about 1,1 KGs of fish, caught locally by a fellow islander.
We only eat fish now and then, and so much appreciate it when we do eat it.

On the topic of bokashi, composting and soil, I discovered there existes such a (pleasurable they say..) activity as soil tasting.

-To Bokashi or not Bokashi?
Living on an Island where our food compost is transported away, it seems crazy to buy soil from gardening centres and doing the heavy job of transporting the soil sacks to our home. Bokashi composting seems pretty straight forward and also importantly; smell less. Turning waste into super potent plant nurture does require more work than dumping the food waste in the bin outside though.

A young swan lives in one of the Sand√łya gardens this winter.
Too young to explore the world, but according to its' parents who left him: Old enough to survive on its' own. Not everyone agrees with the parents there, so everyday the young swan recieves bread. #wildlife

Boating from #vestresand√łya to the mainland, I wildly experience that winter coldness is relative. This weeks hint of spring; sunny and -1, feels pretty warm in comparison to last weeks 15 degrees below zero.

Many times our lifestyle choice; living on a car free island is questioned:
-It must be such hard work, walking and biking everywhere, all year round?
-Don't you get bored?
-It sounds stressful being dependant on a boat to get to the mainland?
My answers to these three most commonly posed questions are something along the lines of:
- It's about Movement. I love the fact that I get a lot of exercise 'for free'! I also so much enjoy these daily meetings on the road, meeting the other islanders; people and animals, as well as observing nature's change over the seasons.
- I appreciate the tranquility. I love the sea and the unspoilt woodland. There are just under 200 people who live here permanently, and we have found our folks within the community.
There are a lot of activities all year round.
And importantly, we leave Sand√łya. Go to work, visit friends and family, travel. We do stuff, like everybody else. But I guess less so. That in its' turn really makes me appreciate going to concerts and caf√©s, in general any other social/cultural activity.
And now even small towns almost feel urban to me...
-Driving our small boat in blizzard is no fun. However, it feels amazing coming home, experiencing our warm house and lighting the logfire. The limitations are my source of joy. It lies in the contrast.

Finally we now have backing in research. Juhuu!
In Friday's Aftenposten newspaper there was an article on the joys of missing out. The interviewee argues that limitations are in fact good for us. This deeply resonated with me.
Thank you, Svend Brinkmann, danish professor in psychology.
You make me feel a little less weird.
