Relaxed and yummy

Sunrise, December 11, 2012
Two sunrises by the river in one week! Today's was a frosty, pastel coloured affair. So very pretty and very quiet.

Nuts, ready to roast
I suddenly found myself skiving off from working this afternoon. Not sure how it happened... Christmas-y goodness was made. Florentine-like nutty things. I'll post a recipe soon.. such as it is, I kinda just made this up as I went along! :-)

And how amazing is that green of the pistaccios?!

Florentine-like nutty goodness

Æbleskiver
I also made another batch of æbleskiver. Using a new recipe. I'm slowly experimenting my way to a vegan recipe which tastes just so. Tasting and tweaking, tasting and tweaking... Tony doesn't seem to mind too much!

Focaccia
And since I was already on a roll, I decided I'd make focaccia to have with dinner. It was slightly overcooked, but still tasted nice. I put a bit of dried oregano on it... oregano in the oven smells soooo good!

I don't think I can even remember when I last just pottered about like this. I'm usually quite strict with myself to work-work-work. Maybe it's a combination of Christmas being so close and us going on holiday very soon... ;-)
