Oh boy, I am really late today. Well, I did already did some things before I started this post.
First I slept a bit later today. Then I woke up very slowly, took a coffee, then took a shower, and then first made our dinner. That is a kind of stew(well, we call it a stew) from mashed potatoes and mixed in fresh small cut endive, also mixed in a bit of crushed fried bacon. It is easy to warm up in the oven or au bain marie.
Here is a link with english translation
Just a few additions: don't add salt to the water for boiling the potatoes, you mix first the little pieces of fried bacon, then add some salt)fried bacon is already very salty). I also add some black pepper and I do mix the mash with a bit of milk and some butter and don;t add the boiled potatoe-water.
I think the recipe will be for 4.
Most of the times I make it for two days, and even then I don;t use as much potatoes and endive(but we are small eaters!)
So when that was ready, I had to wash up the pans and such.
Then i thought it was time to have a sandwich and I had one with salted herring. Yummie, we love that fish in ths way here. Lots of people don;t like it, because it is raw fish, but layed in salt.
Well, how about the weather here. It is on and off you could say. We had a day or a day and half with rain, quite some rain, still here at the coast we were lucky. We had a nice amount of rain, but in the middle and eastern part of our little country they had an overload!!
Yesterday it was almost dry, even some sunshine for short periods. Temperatures are not too exciting here yet(although there is quite a difference between our part and east-south part), we reach around 19-21C. Later this week it could be better, then the wind will turn more to west or even south west and that will bring higher temperatures, around 23-24 yeah!
Last week we had the final of the WC women football and that was between the USA and The Netherlands. Pity I have to say our girls didn;t win, so congratulations to the USA team! Still I am proud of our girls, thay did a great job and silver is a very good result.
Our garden is thriving I can say. Some things just grow as nuts, like some dahlia's they are soo hight this year, I think one reaches about 1 mtr easy.
Some other plants also do very well, but although our tomatoes do give sign of life(we have some starting tomatoes already) they do perform a little bit low. I don;t know if I will try them again next year. Perhaps I should try another species of tomatoe, I dont know yet, or may be I will try something completly different.
And I spent quite some time at the computer making a new kit. And I totally overdone it, LOL! So I splitted the kit in two downloads, easier to download, doesn't take so much time. I named the kit Mysteries of the Woods. Hope you lie it.
Good, now it is time to finish this post, I can do a little game of solitaire and then time will be gone already and it will be time to prepare the dinner(well, warm up the endive mash and fry two sausages) and cut some strawberries and make the cream for the desert.
Oh, we girls always have to do so much things, ROFL!!!
Have a lovely week ahead and I hope everyone will be safe, despite some nasty weather around the planet.
Till next week.
