Rhubarb = Tart and  sweet.  The two flavours were meant for each other.

Rhubarb Syrup Recipe - You can refrigerate the rhubarb syrup for up to one month, but who are we kidding? You’ll use it all up quickly with all these summer refreshing drinks you can make with the rhubarb syrup.
  • 2 kilos of  rhubarb, chopped (you can use fresh or frozen)
  • 3 litres of  water
  • 6 dl sugar
  • juice of 2 lemons

  1. Place the rhubarb and 3 litres of water in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil; lower the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until the rhubarb is tender and pulpy, about 15 minutes.
  2. Strain out the rhubarb pulp, reserving the juice. (Don’t throw away the rhubarb pulp - you can make some other goodies with it!).  Return to the saucepan, over medium heat, stir in the sugar and cook until dissolved, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat, add the lemon juice, and let it cool. Strain again and refrigerate or proceed to make a refreshing rhubarb drink. . .

Memory Lane is a happy place for us.

Memory Lane 
 Norway /  U.S.A / Bahamas

When we packed everything up to move overseas in 2010, missing The Bahamas and U.S.A. didn’t even really cross our minds. We knew we would miss our family and friends, but we were so excited to move to Norway and experience the adventure it had to offer us.
There is a lot to really love about Norway but like I always say - “we didn’t know what there was to miss … until we found ourselves missing it.”
