Challenge Chile

Last chance today!
Here's my entering to the Chile Challenge
It is autumn, it is getting chilly
and what we need is hot heartwarming soup
full of colour, antioxidants and taste!
My own chicken and chile soup
with red peppers, tomatoes, onions, leek, carrots, chick peas, cellery, garlic,
thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper
and of course chile and chicken!

And some home made bread rolls with pumkin seeds
after all, it is Halloween

Autumn sunshine

The life at the cabin is the life on the bright side
Sometimes symbolic
sometimes literally.
A sunny day is never brighter than on a a crisp autumn day
when the air is clear, the sun still warming and the colors fiery.

Dinkie loves a spot of sun
On a cloudy day, she keeps close to the fire,
and seeks the warmth from her good friend the blue monkey
Is it totally inappropriate
that I've got a Christmas carol stuck to my brain today?

A matter of Dessert

Budapest was full of sweet cakes and baked goods
But my tastebuds more on a healthy path
and enjoyed every crunchy and fresh bite of it!
I'm now back to my everyday life
and if I long for an everyday dessert
I might make a bread pudding:

Comfort food for an autumn day!

Budapest and a beautiful knife

I've been travelling to Budapest.
What a great city, I'm sure I'll come again!
We walked the town map from one edge to another
travelled by metro and tram
crossed several bridges
went to spa treatments
had good food, nice weather and a good time!
You can't beat a holiday like that in end of September!
The coffe latte was excellent, the cake so moist, sweet yet tangy

The goulash so tasty, red and heartwarming

And the bridges so great
And I would never have thought I would say this
tickly as my feet are
You've got to love pedicure!
My feet felt like a baby's .. well you know.
When I came home, there was a exciting package waiting for me
The price from the sandwich challenge!

Thanks CSN Stores for providing this beautiful knife as a price for my sandwich
And Christo for making it possible for an alien from across the ocean to recieve it!
There will be a lot of cooking with this beauty!
