My harvest season hasn’t been a great celebration with huge piles of zucchinis and other stuff. I’ve managed to grow something, but with the amount of work I’ve done I hopefully manage to increase the amount of veggies I grow by my self the following seasons. Last season’s success was the jerusalem artichokes, this year … More Trendy colors of the (past) season
Finally the heat wave reached us! I, unfortunately suffer from flu, allergies and most of all the recovering time from dental surgery. I lost two of my wisdom teeth, one was pulled and the other one was cut out. So that means no appetite because of the weather and the flu and the pain in … More Cheer up, it’s summer!
Well, first things first: One thing I really do not recommend is that you plant all the things in your veggie garden and leave the garden for a week as you travel to Berlin.

One thing I’m quite proud of is that I had the courage to do all the laundry and cleaning before the vacation started! I do suggest to do all the “nasty” things beforehand. One not so nasty thing was to book flights to Berlin. One week of spending time in civilized environment! What a great … More What to do on your summer holiday
As I’ve been hibernating for a long time, the spring and all the good things it gives us brought me back to writing these things.

Pizza might be the most popular, but I made some soup the other day from the stuff I found to have in my kitchen. And that stuff were calling for lasagna, … More Hello, lasagna calling!
What a lazy girl I am! This time I really didn’t want to go grocery shopping, so I made something out of what I already got. Well, was it really laziness, is up to you. The choices here are the local shop with limited offering and “very local prizes”, or driving more than 20 km … More The ingredients were screaming for lasagna, but I had already washed the kettle
So, this is the hunting season. I’m not a shooter, but I do accompany my husband and his fellow hunters from time to time. Usually helping with the butchering and, of course, the cooking. I really do like hunting. It is quality time spent with my husband. We just sit in the forest or at … More So a space and a comma changed the movement! (a.k.a. fresh liver)
This time of the year Finns get bored. There’s nothing to do before Christmas. So we are so lucky we have some active and influential people here to arrange some things to do. This month is supposed to be dedicated to not eating meat. This movement is called “Lihaton lokakuu“, as it means meat-free October. … More Craving for mac’n’cheese
Oh, what a shame. I got the flu. There are some things I hate about being sick. Of course, nobody wants to feel ill, but don’t you hate it when the weather is awfully nice, you’ve got some things to do outside but you can’t because you’re sick? One quite significant thing about being sick … More (Flu)Season’s greetings!
