Some quiet days!

Goodmorning everybody!
There isn;t much to tell today. The days past by rather quiet, which is a good thing, of course.
Monday jan and I both took a relax day, specially Jan needed that after a lot of shifts!
Yesterday he had an all day long shift, from morning till about 16.00 in the afternoon.
Well, I didn;t mind that too much, could do some things here, first went out shopping in the morning and when I was just ready with unpacking and had things ready to start preparing already our dinner for a part, Jan came home for a quick visit. He just had time to eat his sandwiched and drink a cup of coffee and off he went again.

I tried a recipee I saw on tv, because when it was made it seemed simple but looked good.I'll give you the recipee(as I don;t have much to talk about LOL)

This is for 4 persons, but easily can make it for less or more.

6 big potatoes
3 onions
half a celery
some (preferably fresh) chives
4 well-filled spoons of sour cream
bit of butter
pepper and salt

Peel the potatoes, cut them in some big chunks and cook them in water with a bit of salt.
Put a stew pot or something like it on  medium fire and melt the butter.
Peel the onions, and cut them in not to fine chunks.
Braise the onions in the butter, Stir regularly (if you like you can braise also a little bit of garlic with it)
Take the celery stems apart, wash them, and then cut them in nice chunks, not too fine, not too big, and if there is some leaf on it, cut that too.
Put them with the onions and let it braise for about 10-15 minutes. Keep stirring regularly.
Onions may color a bit, celery should still have a "bite".
In the mean time potatoes should be ready, put away the water and mash them just a little bit. You should end up with still some potatoe parts, it shouldn;t end up in a fine potatoe mash!
Then add the sour cream, bit by bit, stir all, taste, add if necessary some salt and pepper.

In the recipee the cook made it with some salmon filet, cooked in the oven. But you easily can take something different with it. I had chicken liver with it.
It's a quick made meal, but it tasted real good and is a change now and then.

Today's kit is named "Forest Love". I think it's has nice colors for this time of year.
And you should see the clusters Arlene made with it. I really like the page border she made, fantastic!
Today Jan has evening shift, so I don;t think I will do much during the day(again LOL), but should try to get hold of the owners of the top appartment, to make an appointmetn with them so that we all can take a look at the gutter at the roof. I think the main problem comes from there. Sigh, boring but neceassary. Don;t want to talk much about it at the moment.
Oh my, Jan's mobile is beeping again, probably messages from the agency that they changed his working schedule. Well, no problem, we'll take a look and confirm. They are trying very hard to give him lots of shifts!
Now I am off, have a lovely day, lots of scrapping pleasure!

Your recipe sounds yummy. I might try it with a cubed steak or meatloaf. Your new kit is beautiful, and Arlene's clusters are wonderful. You make a great team. Now it's off to dreamland for me and Pogo. You have a wonderful night, hugs, Edna B.
