the second of the cupboard bases has been covered and this one has a frilly border.. now the indoor plants have their own stand.. this is my view from under my tree.. and the permanent chess play is seen on the lower corner.. I say permanent.. because this is our new lifestyle.. after dinner.. socialisation time for the family.. no sitting and looking at tv.. we have chess- playing sessions.. and yesterday my daughter check-mated me for the first time.. she was as proud as a peacock..
as for crafts.. I am looking for sweaters.. she also ordered me a short ballerina's sweater in black.. to wear over her ballet suit.. with a velvet corsage..
I love to try new recipes and succeed.. I am an expert of choosing easy but elaborate looking recipes.. that one is my latest addition.. have seen this tarte tatin a l'oignon.. in the magazine..
easy as abc..
shallots.. into the boiled water.. for 15 min .. then peeled.. and off to the frying pan..along with some olive oil.. butter..honey.. cumin.. curry.. when pinkish.. divided in small baking pans.. topped with puff pastry.. 15 min in the oven..
can you believe this styish serving has been so easy to prepare.. this is yesterday's story.. tonight I am going to a special girl's party.. we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of our schoolmates.. it is funny how we feel still 11.. and behave as the little girls we were when we started this french school I mention from time to time.. we have so much fun.. we are going to a terrace restaurant at the Pera Street which has a view on the Bosphore.. the girl's tower.. and up to the Topkapi Palace.. tomorrow I will write you more about my school and the night..
what do you have or do for dinner tonight?
