The real cost of food

The real cost of food, originally uploaded by Orhan Tsolak.
This is from the Freelance photographer Orhan Tsolak's Flickr Photostream. At the link to this image Orhan has told us about the cost of a "simple salad" when we don't buy locally. Ouch! It took food coming from "three continents" to make one salad. What are we thinking?

From Joan Brune's who lives in Vilanova del Valle's, Catalunya which is in Spain, north of Barcelona. I was having a bit of hard time with the google translator but Joan Brue's the dessert chef has an website that is absolutely Delicious.

Isn't this an incredible photo! This is also from Joan's Photostream at Flickr.

Forikol Traditional Norwegian Meal

(love the plate :-))
This traditional Norwegian Meal is from one of my fellow Postcrossing Postcard enthusiasts. Radek is from Norway (now living in Manchester, England) and was nice enough to share this delicious picture on his Facebook Pictures.

"Fårikål is a traditional Norwegian dish, consisting of pieces of mutton with bone, cabbage, whole black pepper and a little wheat flour, cooked for several hours in a casserole, traditionally served with potatoes boiled in their jackets. The dish is typically prepared in early autumn. Fårikål is originally a dish from the Western part of Norway, but is now enjoyed in all parts of the country. On 24 September 2009 is Fårikål Feast. Fårikål Feast Day is celebrated on the last Thursday in September each year." from Wikipedia.

Norwegian cuisine in its traditional form is based largely on the raw materials readily available in Norway and its mountains, wilderness and coast. It differs in many respects from its continental counterparts with a stronger focus on game and fish. from Wikipedia

I'm always fascinated by the different cultures, especially our vastness of food! Yum~

Treats from the Angels

This beautiful display is from the blog Sonalida. This is a beautiful place to visit that is full of flowers, food, and relaxing music.
Sonalida lives in California and collects vintage tea cups and loves to visit tea rooms. Her blog has only been around since June of this year and all I can say is WOW!!
It's like visiting a tea party in the middle of the most beautiful rose garden. It brings back memories for me of my childhood in England, where my American grandparents had a beautiful rose garden that I would play in. Then there was the rose garden at the local pub where my mom worked that I would pick roses with the little girl who lived there and we would make "rose petal potions".
It has been such a treat to discover this delightful blog and I can't wait to see more. Be sure to visit Sonalida, You will be glad you did~
