About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

Pineapple marinade

 Look who's laying on a bed of salad.....a Minion. I made this for my son's school lunch. 

I noticed living in Norway, weekends always seem to go by very fast. Monday mornings are mostly brutal. My husband was not feeling well during the night because of something he had ate during the weekend and I didn't sleep well at all because I was taking care of him. 

My son started 2nd grade today. He got to see all his old classmates. He already got invited to a birthday party. It was a bittersweet moment watching him start 2nd grade. He was so happy and he is so excited for tomorrow. 

For dinner today was Polynesian night. I found a great recipe for Shrimp pineapple fried rice 
I added some extra corn, mango, and a little citrus to the fried rice. I made pineapple marinade for my pork chops. This helped my husband, just something light. 

For marinade
1 cup pineapple juice
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
teaspoon garlic salt
freshly ground black pepper
tablespoon oil

In a bowl add all ingredients and whisk well. Place pork chops in a container, pour marinade, and cover. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Before grilling, frying, or baking season with a little more freshly ground black pepper.
