Two Dutch European speed skating champions this weekend.

Goodmorning everybody!

Yes, it was a nice weekend, with all that speedskating going on and specially for us Dutchies it gave a lot of cheering LOL. We have a champion with the men and with the women( and even second places  too at both!)If they will keep on having this shape till on the Olumpics we might gather some medals there!
So you can imagine we didn;t do much else, as it was all done during daytime, in short said: we were a lazy couple LOL!
But on Friday I still did some stuff here, first some shopping( and the new shopping trolley is great, grin), then I prepared the veggies for the freezer. Tooks a lot of cutting( like e.g. a big red cabbage), but now the drawer in the freezer is filled again.
We like very much to eat red cabbage, and of course it is best if you have fresh one.
It's very easy to make. First cut the whole thing in thing slices, or chop it in a machine, and I give it just a quick cooking. Just long enough that water starts boiling and turn the heat off.
Drain it and let it cool off, then put portion in freezer bags.
To make it ready to eat I do like this:
Take out a package, put it water, together with a little bit of white vinager(keeps the color on), then quite some fine sugar( it should taste a bit sweet) and a bit of salt, and depending on portion a handful of so of raisins. Also you can add  little dices of apple in it ( do that a bit later, then they stay firm).
Cook the whole for about half an hour ( cabbage has to be rather soft, but a bit of a bite cannot hurt), then drain, put a bit of butter in it and a good portion of cinnamon powder. Stir all well, and it's done.

Today I must kick myself in the butt and do something about the laundry. Some ironing to be done and a full washing machine is waiting too!. Well, that should keep me busy for a bit, perhaps I will feel brave enough to do some more, we'll see how the day will go , hahaha.
Weather still looking rather well, I was out Saturday too very short, temperatures are a bit lower, but not bad at all. It can stay this way for longer time, I don't need any ice or snow, if possible!

I know I am forgetting something, but it's not peeping up in my mind, so better go on to the freebie and may be I will remember later what I still wanted to ramble about. Shouldn;t be too important, it probably can wait till next time.
Today I have the kit "Moments Aim├ęs" ( loved moments), for you. Think it is a rather versatile kit.
Have some fun today an stay safe and sound!

What a lovely kit and add ons. You ladies are awesome. Congratulations on your speed skating wins. I hope they do well at the Olympics. I love cabbage too. Usually we eat it with butter, salt and pepper. Today I'm off to see the doctor, and with a little luck he will have a magic potion to get rid of the cough and congestion. Now I think I'll rustle up some lunch for Pogo. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

O wow, what pretty colors for this kit, thanks so much to you and Arlene for sharing with all of us! I had to miss the figure skating this weekend as the football playoffs were all on....but I guarantee I will not miss any of the Olympics as I will tape it for when I have to go out. Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog, I so love reading yours. Have a great day and try to catch you tomorrow, I have a really busy schedule, but will work you in....LOL! Many hugs sent your way!
