Shortbread and a glass of beer

It's still a bit nippy and I get inspired to do some baking: 
Vanilla and cinnamon shortbread that melts in your mouth.
some of them with a little chocolate belt, just for the fun of it.
when it's a moment of sun at night, I enjoy a dark and cold beer with som slices of lime. 

Yorkshire lad is painting the doors inside the house, he gets restless when the weather is bad!

One espresso and one tea

Outside the rain is pouring down, its cold and windy
And its summer!
There is no reason to be upset!
I light some candles, and Yorkshire lad
Brings me my favourite:
An espresso and a cup of tea!

And what about some warm cinnamon rolls on the side?
Some silly television, and the indoor comfort is complete!
There is nothing we can do about the weather anyway!

Picnic at the cabin and an ice tea

My summer holiday is not to start while the end of July, but I am ready for it now.
I try to do stuff that feel holiday-ish after work and during the weekends. 
This way I make myself believe that I am already off, and the summer seems long and promising!
One afternoon last week, we had a picnic at the cabin. 
my mum and dad came with us, they used to own our cabin, and they love to come with us, and to see how much we treasure the old little house and the garden. 

We enjoyed our food in the sun, aspic, garlic bread and remoulade, and a few ice cold non alcoholic beers (we were driving)

On our way home the GPS suddenly felt the urge to tell us that "you are home in 23 minutes". Even though nobody had asked it. 

Back in the kitchen Pink Princesse treated me with an ice tea and a few strawberries from the coffemachine she gave us for Christmas!

Little bit of this and that in the beginning of summer

So what did I do while I wasn't blogging? I had a long and good break!
What happened I guess, was that I got a new toy, my Ipad, and in the beginning I didn't find a good way to blog using the Ipad. 
There was facebook, and Wordfeud, and all sorts of time consuming entertainment, you know, what can I say! 
When it came to cooking, I had a low period too, because I had to cut dairy products out of my diet, and It took som time to get used to that, and get inspired to cook and enjoy in new ways! 
But I never wanted to delete the blog, it means a lot to me! 
So maybe I can give it a little attention! 

Summer is definitely here, and my favourite flower is blossoming in the garden. 

Shandie Pipkin is enjoying her new freedom, there is no longer barking madness every time she's showing her face, the dor is open now, and she runs in and out of the house.

Preparing for a picnic!

Dinkie Doodle

Our sweet little Dinkie Doodle died last Thursday.
She had a lovely life, and she turned eleven the Sunday before, and enjoyed a tasty pea, bean and liverpaste-pie, that Pink Princesse made for her. 
Our family and their dogs was invited. Little did we know it was a farewell party!

She stood bye us in good and hard times! She will be deeply missed!
