Peeping bird

This little bird has been peeping through my window for quite a lot of days now. I thought her plan was to check out if it was a good spot to build a nest, but so far it does not seem to be the case. It does look as though she likes to pick tiny holes in my colorful succulent you can see in the background.

Spring time

Is also strawberries time … around here at least.

A little while ago I bought this new cookbook and the first thing I tried from it was roasted strawberries, mostly because it sounded like a strange thing to do, but the result was really  very good and I am definitely making them again.

(Should you not have heard of roasted strawberries before, just google it and you will get plenty of instructions on how to prepare them).


Sweets experiment

Above you see the result of my latest food experiment. Almonds covered with white chocolate (mixed with a bit of grated lemon zest) and rolled in licorice root powder. They were very nice. I made them for one of the Christmas days, so it is already quite some time ago. Hmm, time to think up new food experiments as it makes cooking more fun, I think.

Light and darkness

ligtht in darkness
I brought home the wooden pieces for the above lamp from Copenhagen to light up one of the dark places in the living room. My husband started right away to assemble it … and almost done, he discovered that one of the pieces was a doublet and therefore another piece was missing. I emailed the company, and they posted the missing piece right away and I could pick it up in the post office some days ago … and now it is lighting up the room when the evening gets dark :)

There was also another envelope waiting for me at the post office. I’ll show you what it was in the next post.
