Good evening, everyone!
Today I found some meat on sale when I went shopping, and some of it was lamb’s meat, and I decided to buy some of the cheap meat, and I decided to use some of it to prepare a very nice Norwegian lamb’s meat dish that I had never prepared for myself before. The meal is called “får-i-kål” in Norwegian. It means “sheep-in-cabbage”.
My mother has made this meal to me and others in my family many times, and I was used to this meal from when I grew up, but I had never tried out making this meal on my own before. I called my mother to get some advice on how to make it, and I also read in a recipe book to get help with the cooking process. It is really very easy to prepare the meal. All you need to do is to lay layers of meat and cabbage on top of each other in a pan and to put salt and pepper on it, and then you add some water and let it boil on a low heat for about 90-120 minutes.
As I was preparing the meal, I was going to check something out on one of my walls in the living room, but as I moved on my tv bench, then it started falling to peaces, my TV came falling towards me, and the books, CD’s etc. in the shelves beneath the TV came falling out, and it was all a bit difficult and dangerous situation for a while, but I managed to carry the TV down to the floor without hurting myself, and apart from that I just had to let things happen. I lost control over quite a lot of things, because as the bench fell apart a little, things fell out, and I couldn’t “save” them all. After this accident had happened, this is how it looked in the area where it took place:
A little while after I got this mess into my living room I cleared up most of it, and then I managed to get the TV bench back together again, so I could use it and watch some TV, as I did a little bit as the food I was preparing was boiling on it’s own. I have taken things to the side, but not put all things back in their place, and I will tidy up more tomorrow, but some things I’ve found out that I need to keep away from the TV bench, because they are too heavy and can make the bench fall into pieces again.
In the end my dinner was ready late this evening, and then I could finally eat it and enjoy it, and it was absolutely something to enjoy. I was very happy and proud over having made this meal called “får-i-kål” that I had made today, as it was the first time I had cooked it on my own. When I tasted it, it tasted lovely, so it was a great success, so I was very pleased with myself and the meal I made.
As I did some housework and cooked this new meal I have told you about today, I also felt more like a housewife, and I believe trying out new meals and improving on my house work skills are things which are preparing me for becoming a very good housewife, and I’m looking very much forward to marrying Jonathan and becoming his wife and to be a housewife and home maker in our future home.
