Sunday spent in the Kitchen

One of the great benefits of having an office is that I seldomly work on the weekends anymore (as opposed to every weekend before). This has freed what feels to be a massive amount of time—time for some of the »homy« stuff I love so much.

Today I spent the entire day in the kitchen. I made a batch of pickles made from my late grandmother's recipe. (You can find a couple of pictures, and the recipe here if you like: at Clemmensen & Brok)

I made a cake and a terrine from the giant zucchini. Wheat and rye buns with nigella seeds, sausage rolls, basil pesto, and for dinner; spicy chicken wings with root ragout and creamy polenta. (might have gone a little bit overboard—admittedly I was kindda beat once we'd finished dinner :-)

The beginning of tea cozy from Saturday. Much too tired to knit now. Perhaps tomorrow.

I hope your Sunday was awesome!


  1. Du var godt nok flittigt !
    Det er nu dejligt at have tid og lyst til at lege i køkkent :-)

  2. Atter rigtig dejlige billeder!
    Det lyder til at have været en dejlig produktiv dag. Nogle gange er der bare ikke noget bedre end at lave en masse lækker mad helt fra bunden og virkelig nusse om maden.
    Samtidig bliver det jo også en forkælelse for både næse og tunge. :-)

  3. I´m glad that you enjoyed you weekend! no stress at all, great!
    It´s very nice to cook and have time to do it...
