The longing makes it even nicer when it finally comes, these two last years in Sweden has really made me aware of the seasons and the sudden changes. After a long dark winter it almost feels surreal to sit under the warm sun again. We welcomed the spring and the sunny weather this easter, took a day in Torup with picnik.
This one I will try tonight..
5 tbs of Ramslök
50 g almonds
1/2 dl of olive oil
Mix ramslök, almond, oil, salt and pepper to a even paste, add som cold water, capers and lemon peel, maybe some more salt and pepper.
Enjoy as a dipp for veggies or on crisp bread!
My days has been busy, but busy in a good way. Full of friendship, love and fun things. House is full of kids and I have a good friend staying with us. Long dinners, lots of talking, thats the way I want my Easter! I have even done a intense Yoga corse with amazing Petri Räisänen, so I feel soft but at the same time strong in my body and mind;)
Monday night we had dinner at PatéPaté in Copenhagen with best Adina and Carmen, it´s so nice to meet up with old friends that you haven’t seen for ages but once you get together it feels like it was yesterday you saw each other. Time´s passing, things in life changes but the friendship remains.
I love the spring, all the colours, the light and the birds but most of all I like the expectations of what about to come. Fixing and taking care of a garden gives you faith in tomorrow. My garden project has started, today I digged and prepared for my little plantagen. It is still to cold for most vegetables so now I´m just waiting for the sun!!
The hard job is done, now Im studying and learning about different plants and vegetables that are easy to grow. My ambition is to have some tomatoes, mangold, basil, rhubarb, ruccola, strawberries, zucchini, potatoes and carrots of course.
My and Milo´s little basil seeds are now seeing the light for the first time, a few more weeks then they will be ready for the big world. Just a few more days then I will sit under my blooming Magnolia tree, just a few days..
I wish you all a beautiful weekend!
Right now my pintrest is flooded with green stylish food images, can’t get enough!!!
You want to celebrate and get the perfect gift for the one you love that has passed the first half of his life. But what can you give to someone that has everything and buyes all the things he wants for him self?? Very tricky, and we have been thinking and thinking.. Finally we realised that he never got himself a oil portrait, so that´s what we gave him. “The man of the house” kind of painting;) something our grand grand children will have as a memory on their walls one day…
A soft nice club chair for his wine cellar. But now it got to move up in the kitchen, we realised it is to beautiful to stand in the dark down in the basement… Then we filled up his wine cellar with bottles from 1964-2013, the best years of his life.
Two surprise party´s later, a trip to New York and Rome. The man can now start a new chapter in his life, the best years are here, I love you!
Last week I went to check out the showroom onetwoten here in Malmö and came home with a bag full of my boys favourite clothes Ebbe! Great cool basic clothers for every kids wardrobe. I just love the fact that everything fits so good together and the name Ebbe stands for “extra beautiful basic equipment”.
Too cool for school, Tiago with his hoodie and the little hipster hat!
