When we decided on Iceland, I thought that it wouldn’t be a “foodie” vacation.
We decided from the start that it wouldn’t be financially feasible for us to eat out three times a day for two weeks-I keep planting that hundred dollar bill tree but the damn thing won’t grow! So we planned to eat out as little as possible and instead buy and make our own food. However, we’ve still managed to have quite a few AMAZING meals since we’ve arrived. Of course we haven’t been eating as lean as we usually do, but hey it’s vacation and since we’ve been hiking most days for several hours, I’m not concerned.
Starting with the really fun stuff- the meals we’ve had at the various little holes in the wall around this country. Every tiny place offers incredible presentation!
And last but not least, the dessert break we didn’t plan for at all.
Real whipped cream and sugar are a treat that I just couldn’t pass up. Seriously- thank goodness we are hiking for hours every day. We stopped at a small turf house called Litlibær offering coffee. The host brought everything you see on this table- and more- out to us. We were stunned and totally ate it all. The host’s father grew up in the home and now they run it as a coffee stop and museum. If you go to Iceland, GO HERE. It is so unexpectedly gorgeous.
