i've been going through some old photos in my big iPhoto library and i came across these from the viking festival at the viking ship museum in roskilde a couple of years ago. it was late summer, the sun was shining, and with snow on the ground at last, i'm feeling a bit wistful for those light, bright days.
this coming summer, i want a setup like this...a place to make pancakes over the fire in the garden. tho' i think i'll stick with my normal clothes.
to grill delicious food, using local produce and maybe even a plant or two found in the forest.
grilled meats, served up viking style in a rustic bowl on a bed of mashed root veg and grain.
maybe not quite so many chickens at once, but a chicken grilled outdoors would be awesome.
and a big bowl of heritage grains with cabbage and herbs.
summer dreams. and really, it's not THAT far away.
