Random post

Because I am way too lazy today, this will be a post with random topics in random order.

Lets start with the most important stuff, tho. Food. Spaghetti Carbonara, mMmmm really SO good!

And now to the second most important topic... More food. I did read about 300+ duck breast recipes, without finding exactly what I was looking for. So I made my own, and it was very close to perfect! I know the picture doesn't look that good, but it tasted like something very close to heaven. The thing is, I don't like duck pink, I like it the melting on tongue type of way. Inspired by a few recipes I cooked it in chicken broth for an hour or so, let it cool, and then browned it on a pan. The chicken/duck broth was reduced until almost nothing, and then used in the sauce. So good.

And then there are flowers and SNOW!

And blocking!

I hate blocking (not blogging tho)

... but I love knitting! I have been knitting a lot of boring stuff lately, and I just couldn't be arsed to put pics of it on the blog. Ravelry is a better place for that. But right now I knit something I reallyreally like, and that is SO pretty!

I'm knitting a FeatherAndFan shawl of sock yarn rests:

Look at the details!

And now I'm at it, here's more knitting:

(Yes, I have a big flash)

Burning love!

For some absurd reason this dish is called Burning Love in Danish. It's definitely delicious, though.

Fry some bacon:

(Aaaaargh, I hate starting with a really bad pic :| )

Fry a lot of onions in the bacon fat:

Boil potatoes:

Mash 'em! And don't forget to put a good amount of butter and milk in it.

The food blogging is back!

I used to love the food blogging part of my blog! The combination is just great, food + pictures. This also leads me to read lots of food blogs. Some of them are more absurd than inspiring tho, I mean wtf was I thinking when I added a fat-free and vegan blog? Vegan food can be great of course, as long as it isn't everyday, but fat free...? That's just sad. Mostly I love blogs that combine food blogging with everyday blogging, and there are a lot of great ones out there. I found a new one of that category (new to me that is), and it is so inspiring I decided to food blog again. So without further ado:

Yesterdays dinner.

mMmmm lots of fat in there mMmm

Even without a baby and all the stuff that follows, we needed more storage space. So besides the dresser, we also bought some more Ikea parts for our bookshelf, which thereby could increase 50% in size. Just putting the new next to the old would have been the easy solution, but those Ikea shelves really get an ugly orange colour over the years, so we decided they needed some whitewaxing. This also meant everything had to be removed from them...

But it was all worth it! It looks great, and there is still space that can be filled with stuff!

Oh yes, and we also bought a babybedthingie!

Kommode veranen

We bought a giant dresser thingie, having heard rumours about small children needing an amazing amount of stuff. So we bought the biggest one they had in Ikea. Of course the real challenge here was to put it together.

There were a lot of small pieces:

Preparing for da baby...

We somehow have to fit in a baby + all the stuff that follows into our tiny apartment. And it seems there is only one way furniture can be arranged, so that this is possible. The first thing was to remove a lot of books (but only a tiny amount of books compared to the total amount we own...) from this:

And put them up here:

The desk has to be somewhere else... There is a giant computer screen on it:

We did buy some more furniture from Ikea, but they didn't deliver it as promised, so now chaos is spreading...

And some flowers on the tiny balcony:

Sweden part 2

Just a few more pics from the beautiful Sweden:

The followings two pics were both taken at the Vättern:

We drove to another camping site, again in the middle of a forest, at a picturesque lake:

What you can't see, of course, is that there were two big disadvantages on this camping site. The first one because people were basically allowed to put there tent and car or caravan wherever they wanted, making it quite a challenge to get out car out again. This was even more so because it was a rather hilly area. The second disadvantage was the reallynotgoodenuff toilet. There were only two for women, and they weren't quite clean enough, and even though you could lock the door, insects could still crawl/fly inside, so you had to fight evil swedish killer insects, while sitting there...

So we drove on, to yet another camping site. A biggish part of the holidays my bf spend like this:

As I unfortunately recommended a good book to him, a crime novel taking place in the very area were we were camping!
