Martha Wanna Be #2

Due to a two week vacation and a night shift of three nights just after the vacation, I couldn't work much on my to do list. After just two weeks of absence a lot of things were going on, like a dual boiler that didn't heat the water anymore, but made the central heating in the house hit record temperatures, like our Flemish giant Haasje who had a very red eye and looked like he was very miserable and thus had to be taken to the vet, like my old school friend who has cancer and is now weakening very fast. Enough to make doing chores around the house less important.

Notes

Baking&Cooking


Caramelized Garlic Tart 
I used every ingredient in the recipe and although I liked this tart a lot, next time I will use normal cheese instead of goat's cheese. The goat's cheese gives this tart a really distinct taste, that I myself like, but my children do not.  

Cocos Pineapple Smoothie
I made a really easy version of this with frozen pineapple, which makes the extra ice unneeded, cocos water and milk. Blend everything and that's it. 


Baklava
Great taste, almost as good as my baker's baklava. And look at that beautiful plate that I once bought in Istanbul, finally in use. 




Crafting

Blocking Blanket
I'm working on a blanket for ages now. The only thing I have to do is block the 100 pieces of crocheted pieces, but it's such a dreadful thing to do, that I postponed the job everytime I looked at the blanket. Thank to this new blog, I finally got the discipline to make a start. But even thoug: long way to go


Making

Butterfly Solar Lamp
This week my parents will come over and the temperatures will be high, as the forecast says, so I'm planning a little garden dinner. I have this beautiful butterfly table cloth, so this lamp will match perfect with that. 


Repot sunflowers
The supermarket I shop every year promotes people to grow your own vegetables and flowers and give away little pots with seeds whenever you spend enough on groceries in their store (one pot for every ten euros). Last year I planted some sun flowers and although I haven't a green thumb at all, the sun flowers actually did pretty good and had beautiful colors! Not yellow, but a deep bordeaux becoming more red to the heart of the flower.  Trying my luck again this year.
