Corners of my home

It's been a while but here are some corners of my home

The kitchen is actually only a corner in my living room but I still like it. If anybody has any ideas of what to use the tanjine ( the brown thing... for I'm all ears. The recipebook that came with it only has food served in it. And I would like to cook with it. The espressomachine was a generous weddinggift and I love it too bits. The teacosy was a wedding present too as were the knives I love it that I have these gifts that we use every single day. The circle on the neighbor's housewas actually left by a zwarte piet who stayed there this December. We had one too!
OH and the green thing. That's appelstroop (applesyrup?) It comes in a plastic apple and I feed the stuff to my children everyday because I want the container!

And well this one doesn't need any comment. Spring might be round the corner but it still rains every day:

And now for a very political corner of my home. Our attempt to support the Danes:

I wish though sometimes this stuff would only take a corner instead of all the living space ;-)

Hi, I'm a friend of poppit's (but I live in chile). I just read your site about what to do with the Tagine, here is a recipe I love!!

The parsely and lemon juice sauce really makes a nice difference!

bye for now

Love the pussy willows, that's what we call them, though it sounds vaguely pornographic. And being part Danish I'm glad of the support.

I love Holland -work on a buld farm for three weeks as a teenager.
patat and mayo was a fav.p
