    Tomatoes again..

    September 25th, 2011

    Remember last year, when I showed you this? Well we decided to do it again, so yesterday we went to the market to get the tomatoes and fresh herbs, and today we are grilling them for 4 hours. This is after 2 hours hen we have to turn them upside down:

    Now we have to wait 2 more hours before we go fill the air tight jars and put then in the closet to rest for 3 weeks. And yes, I will put a glass bowl under the jars so if the jars flood over, I don’t have the disaster like last time. :)

    I cant wait to cook the yummeh tomatoes cheese pie again.


    Nicole’s Brownies

    December 18th, 2010

    A few days ago I saw the secret of making delicious brownies on Nicoles Blog. So When the Hogfather was kind enought to give dan_e a brownies baking tin and a bar of 74% chocolate, we decided to give it a try today.

    Chopping the pecan nuts and mixing the dry ingredients. The picture is made with my iPhone so its a little blurry.

    After an hour of delicious chocolate odeurs coming from the kitchen ( I felt like watching the movie Chocolate with scent) we got this. And we both agree: these are the best brownies we ever made. Thank you Nicole for this great recipe.

    Just guest blogging for Marion, because her hands were busy kneading the cookie dough:

    But as you can see, the first batch turned out allright – we even has to try the first one before we thought of taking the picture..

    Tomatoes in oil part 2 and some thread too

    July 24th, 2010

    Last week I was checking upon our tomatoes and I discovered a huge oil puddle in my closet.. Rats! the oil came from the jar we were keeping our tomatoes in. I took the jar out, opened it very carefully and that was very smart. It almost exploded, but not as bad as it could have been.

    It looked like this:

    So after I cleaned all up, and closed the lid again, I put it back in the closet, this time in a huge glass bowl. So if it was to overflow again, at least it would not get on my shelves again.

    Today Dan_e and I checked the tomatoes again. It looked fine and it tastes soo yummeh!

    I scooped out a bit to fill a 0.25 litre jar to give away as a birthday present for a friend we are going to visit tonight. We are going to make a cheese quiche with it tomorrow. We’ll keep you posted.

    I also bought some yarn for my friend, as she is a knitter too. We went to De Afstap and I only bought yarn for her. I have a huge stash and I was very brave to not add more yarn to it. After that we walked through de 9 straatjes (the nine streets) and in one of the many awesome shops I found me a thread can. And some cute sheep in a games shop:

    In the lid is a small hole you pull your yarn through. Then you knit, knit, knit and your thread never gets knotted. I love it :) The little sheep is just cute.
