Yesterday we went to see Grandma at her farm on Strai! It’s my boyfriends mother and Lucas Grandma!
Her name is Gunnhild and on August 2, she will turn 86. She lives on the farm and after her husband died 5 years ago, she has lived alone here.
It’s a fantastic place and Svein Erik and his two older brother grew up here. They have had all sorts of animals living here. And the farm has provided them with all sorts of meat; lamb, chicken, rooster, rabbit, turkey, capercaillie (tiur), elk, eggs, vegetables, fruits and berries and surely more….
And they have had many dogs and cats, and one horse that I know of, I don’t think they ate them…though you can never be totally sure…
Anyway, it’s more quiet now. There are some apple trees and some gooseberry and currants and black currants bushes AND rhubarb!
So when we came yesterday, actually on our way to Vennesla to look at some Labradoodle puppies, Gunnhild welcomed us with open arms and a BIG smile, and told me to go and pick some rhubarb.
Haha, she is fantastic! She is so generous and she is sharing everything. I asked if I could use her toilet, but as she in short time she was driving downtown to have lunch with Catharina, the door was locked so I needed the keys. She handed them over to me and asked me to be careful and not drop them in the toilet.
Then Catharina called and had to cancel lunch. There was more time to chat. I asked if I could go and get a glass of tap water. Oh, no, «Just sit» and she ran into the house and came back with a carrier bag containing three bottles of soda 1,5 liters…and glasses. Well, she is something!
Then we had to call it a day and we left with rhubarb and soda.
I told her I would try to make a pie. So when we came home I did so! And here is the result:
I got the recipe from TurboLotte’s blog as I asked Facebook to help me out! DELICIOUS, Thank You, TurboLotte
