Welcome to january the 74th

I think we survived January. B’s teeth, the three times car mechanic, insurances and christmas-meldown hit hard… but we had food and shelter and made it through.

This is the last meal I made and even though we’re doing scraps now… it was awesome. I will call it:

Pasta N eggs 74th

  • Boil some pasta
  • Cut leftover veggies (we had kale, onions and parsnips) and fry it in a pan with some salt, paprika and garlic
  • mix a bunch of whole eggs with a good splash of cream and a bit of sifted wheat flour – give it salt and pepper and toss it in a medium/low heat frying pan and let it warm/sit
  • mix pasta with vegetables and fry it a minute or two, before adding a bit cream and topping it with what ever cheese that needs to be eaten.
  • turn on the grill in the oven and give the pasta-veggies a ninut or two.
  • Check the eggs. If it is still a bit liquid on top, give it a minute or two under the grill
  • Serve and enjoy.

Kitchen curtains – or “I´m tired of smiling at my neighbours when my kitchen is a mess”

This is my kitchen from yesterday – it still looks like this btw. We´re not perfect people in this house at all, and I refuse to pretend that I am in this blog too. Actually people pretending to be perfect in blogs and on youtube and other platforms scares me. I can´t stop thinking what´s hiding beneath the surface, and having a crazy imagination like me does not make pretty stories just because people are pretty and lead pretty cute lives. So when thinking about starting this blog, we had conversations about how honest to be here on the blog, we agreed to go “all in” – but ofcourse with respect to the people around us and each other and our wish to stay together for the rest of our lives.

As you can see in the above picture, my kitchen window is right next to the street in our little cul de sac, and it wouldn´t be a problem if the people around us were about the same age and had lives, so they would not be so busy. But appearantly mostly “elderly” people lives here, and some how they have time for “strolling” while looking through windows all day long, so I have to smile and pretend, that I´m proud of my mess…which I´m not.

We’ve been wanting to put up curtains for a while, but money are an issue so we were quite hesitant because we remembered the drama and the expenses about the livingroom curtains that we felt the need to buy after only living here for a week.

Luckily I went to the goodwill shop last week, and I stumbled across a sheet with broderie anglaise all around the edges, and since it was cheep (15dkr), and I also found a curtain rod for less than that, I had no more excuses than to make those curtains and keep a nice facade…

Here´s a “how to”

Loooook how pwetty this is. And please ignore the coffee stain that neither of us saw before it was too late and we were too lazy to wash it.

I´m pretty satisifed with the curtains. to be honest. I decided to (have B) hang them a bit above the counter, because I know I´m a mess at the sink, so I have to be able to wipe it off without thinking about moving the curtain to avoid the cloth.
