Meat and potato pie

I'm married to a Yorkshire lad
and if I really want to make him happy
I'll make him some true British grub
All I need is meat, onions, potatoes and carrots
thyme, rosmary, salt and pepper
and my friend, time...
Home made pastry: wheat flour, butter, salt and water
covers the meaty goodness in the pie dish

Take a photo before hacking through

Ah! the simple and good life!
And the Yorkshire lad
was so pleased!

Hidden beauty

The other day I got this grass smelling little ball
I kept it in my pocket until I came home
Magic happened when I dropped it in a jug of boiling water
The shy and closed ball
opened and turned into a flower

Pretty isn't it!
Now it's time for a cup of tea.

What if I like to shoot some bubbles just for fun!
slightly addictive, about as fun as world of sand

Apple season

Between all the apple pies and cakes
Sometimes it goes in circles
Apple rings

dried for later
maybe on our cereal?

What's on your T-shirt?

Today I'm wearing one of my favourite T-shirts
I celebrate love, hope, and humor
I celebrate energy, color and individualityPatience and possibilities

A good day with the sun and the sea

This weekend the Pink Princesse and I
went to the lovely south east of Norway
where there is smooth rocky islands and salty sea
as far as the eye can see!
Some friends and their daughters invited us to their cabin
My daughter and I are something we like to call
Land crabs
That means people that spend most of their time on land
and rarely experience the joy of the boatlife!
This weekend we got wind in our hair and salty showers
in our faces

It was a brilliant weekend
just sparkling!

Mushroom walk on a Tuesday

It's time for mushrooms in the woods
Color like this usually sais "stay away from this!"
A mushroom on a tree

A big one, probably dangerous to eat

This one smelled good, but I never bring home the one I don't know!
We went around a little lake in the wood

I love the smell of the marsh around it.

This amanita muscaria was a beauty!

This is my safe mushroom!
They van be yellow or white
and has teeth underneath the cap.

Mushroom supper, straight from the wood!
with onions, red pepper and eggs
