Notes

Due to a busy schedule (again), because I had to work the weekend shift in order to be allowed two days off on thursday and friday to go Menorca, a lot of the chores I had planned never became reality.

Baking&Cooking


Apricot Pistachio Tart
Unfortunately the apricots weren't totally ripe yet, but the taste was great anyway. Too bad I was the only one of the family who liked it, so it isn't a keeper, this apricot treat. 




Tortilla/Black Bean Pie
Actually, when I was busy making this pie it suddenly seemed so much easier to stick to my usual recipe for quesadillas, instead of making this pie that would crumble the moment I'd put a knife in it. So I didn't come further than purchase the ingredients, but made quesadillas from it in the end. 

Guacamole
For the guacamole I also used my own good old recipe. Just put a peeled avocado in a foodprocessor with a spoon ful of mayonaise. At garlic, a little bit of chili and a sniff of salt and process until smooth. Mix in a chopped tomato.

Horchata Pops
I love the combination of rice and cinnamon. Sometimes my mother made rice milk for us when we were kids and the taste of these pops make me think of that. 

 


Cleaning 

Polish wooden table with olive oil
Didn't expect this to work, but the table looks as good as new!
 

Making

Glass Medaillon
I made this one for Mother's Day. It's a key chain for pictures, but instead of a picture I've put dried forget-me-nots in it. 
 

Decorating


Flower arrangement in jar
 For this I used an empty vegetable jar, wrapped in a paper brown bag.  


String of Lamps
My parents came over this weekend and because of the beautiful weather we could roast chicken and for me a veggie burger on the barbecue. To make it look a bit more festive I hung different sort of lamps from the pergola.
