I still remember this beautiful shortbread we ate during our holidays. Well, I do not have the golden Jersey cream, but I tried nonetheless to make it at home today. It looks a bit different and I used dark choc, but I hope it will give our day today a holiday feeling.
What are you up to?
Edit: It was easy to make. I used the recipe from chefkoch and all I changed was the choc - I used dark 70% choc and I added a little bit of seasalt to the middle layer. Next time I will bake in a flat pan and use choc with less cacoa. Than I think it will be easier to cut into pieces. Mine was delicious but did not look delicious, choc breaking and a hard game to take out of the pan. But hey, it's all about the taste and to get better with each try.
Oh, and it is a very heavy cake, so give away some pieces.
A mix of last weeks views. Just want to share this beauty of summer.
At the moment a big part of my time is focused on work. I worked a bit more these days to have enough hours to take monday off to have lunch with an old friend, visit a doc and having a job interview. So I am having a long weekend home. yeah!
I like my job and get to see a lot of the surroundings - and I have to tell you this part of Germany is beautiful! I missed my camera dearly when I saw some beautiful windmills at the roadside. And there are beautiful old redbrick houses, too. Small farms still at work selling their products...
Since yesterday we had sun. Not just for a minute, no, the whole day. My parked car was hot, hot, hot when I took it home from work. Today I was prepared and it was time to eat outdoors and paint the railing.
It is blueberry time again. Oh, you little beautiful blue ones. I could not resist to tell my parents to meet at the blueberry farm for lunch today. In the middle of the blueberry fields you can get beautiful things made from the berries and cold or hot drinks. It looks like beautiful weather on this pics and I decided two t-shirts would be enough to enjoy my meal outdoors - well, I was wrong, it was beautiful, but cold, so the hot cappuchino was great with my lunch.
I am happy to have very short hair again. Just in time before my hairdresser goes on his annual 6 weeks vacation. I do not know how you are, but I am happy to know how I will look. I visit George for several years now and it is an easy cut. He knows how to cut. Speaking with the others and looking out of the window while doing his art. No need to investigate me. I just need to sit down and relax.
Do you like to try different looks or are you like me - getting the same cut for years?
