Waiting for spring is pretty long here in Finland… Still wearing long sleeves T-shirts and pullovers ! It is still snowing sometimes, still some frost…
So I had to find a way to keep me warm : cooking ! (and eating of course). Here are some examples of my week ends :
- pear and vanilla and sugar in the bread machine
my first home made jam ! its working !
my first home made jam : pear-vanilla !
The recipe of this jam comes from here (sorry, in french) : http://machine-a-pain.fr/recette/84/confiture-poire-vanille.html
- roquefort pie
- ham olives and cheese cake
my chocolate rabbit
roll cakes with home made pear-vanilla jam and chocolate icing 🙂
home made roll cake 5 minutes after...
The recipe : home-made jam (see above)
The cake : (in french, from my grand mother’s book)
And the Icing : Dark chocolate (70%) and a little bit of butter to melt slowly together
baking of the snail biscuits
pork tenderloin and fried potatoes
Swedish cider... apple and rhubarb (euh... trop sucré !)
I also had fun with my bike… while I was pushing it the Eastern Sunday morning, I heard a “BANG” : my back tyre exploded… 😦 really bad luck cause I was far away from home of course and all the shops were closed until the Tuesday !
- the inner tube of the bike
- the workshop
the “new” bike
At work, I got a German computer, and change the keyboard settings because I like better the International US one. But, I had to change a bit the looking of the keyboard, I was looking for hours every time to find a sign… So here it is, you need a lot of patience, and few hours (and specially when the signs disappeared under the keys 😦 ) to transform a German keyboard !!
- new keybord
- And I changed my hair again, I cut them myself and i changed the color again (dark with purple)… Here is my new head !
