Breakfast

Gosh! I wasn’t all too happy when the alarm went off this morning… I am slowly trying to turn the day towards hoppin’ up a bit earlier. Normally I am a morning person but the last couple of days… Ehrm week I have been up late and not been out of bed until tenish. Since I am going back to work next week (not tomorrow do give me some credit for planning ahead..) and then on the morning shift (begin at seven) I really need to sort my sleeping habits now.

Anyways, I have now woken up quite a bit and just finished my breakfast. On my running schedule it says I shall run 6K today, let me say I am NOT keen on this at all. Yesterday was a battle just to run 3K which caught me about off guard since it has been going so good so far. My mind wanted to kill me almost in each slope… Not the best feeling. Oh we’ll I will run this afternoon and we’ll just see how it goes. I guess my poor lazybone is struggling for his (mind u his! She is not a lady) survival. Now lets start with a walk to wake those legs up!

Even when the weather isn’t all that good, the Åre valley still look amazing. This is part of the reason why we moved here!

I love it!

Sponge cake

I have a score to settle with our old friend Mrs. Sponge Cake! She seem to have been quite upset with me… Which has resulted in a close to hatred from my part. There just hasn’t been any way to reason with her!

Anyways since I was feeling pretty good about myself after cleaning the kitchen I thought it was time to have another “sitting” with this grand old lady.

So I tried a new recipe, and guess what!? Me and the mrs are the best of friends again. Oh the joy!

So the recipe was as u will find below. (Victory!!!!)

2 eggs
2dl granulated sugar
75 grams of melted butter
3 dl flour
1,5 teaspoons of baking soda
2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
1 dl milk

So here is how you do it (the lady has some specific requests or she won’t cooperate the least bit and turns out grumpier than most).

1. Whisk the sugar and eggs together. Keep that going now, don’t be lazy. You need to whisk it until the sugar is completely dissolved… That means you won’t feel any sugary crunch if you taste it… Just smooth yummines!

2. Melt the butter

3. Sift the flour, baking soda and vanilla sugar together in a separate bowl.

4. Now add the flour mixture to the supersmooth yummines and stir it together. Now don’t go whisking it together that just won’t do. Ok?

5. Pour the milk into the melted butter and then stir it together. Once again, don’t whisk it. I said no!

6. Pour the batter into the mold (is that even the correct word?)

7. Snap it into the oven in 175 degrees (did I mention to put it on the lowest level thingie in the oven?) for 35 minutes.

8. Let the cake cool completely in the mold (once again this surely isn’t the right word is it!?) before you carefully take it out of the form.

9. Enjoy!

Herbs

Ok, it ain’t too easy to get stuff to grow and prosper when you live up north in the mountains… Thus we have put down some lovage, rosemary and lavender in pots… The lovage will be planted in the garden once it’s a little bit bigger.

Last year everything died… Hopefully not this year. Fingers crossed!
