Should have been a very nice Queens Day today, but some lunatic decided to kill 6 people (still 9 injured) and himself. Live on tv 🙁 Found this on YouTube
It’s a reflecion in an old, somewhat damaged, but still working clock.
My submission for the Not Quite Right challenge on DPChallenge.com.
2009-04-29: Place 111 out of 113 (1.8 %) with a score of 3.7005.
And there is one more. (Just getting some fresh air after lunch)
Just a quick improvisation for today. Amaretto cookies with amaretto.
Spent the whole (nice) afternoon photographing beach volleyball and other activities in Oostzaan, a nearby village. It was the first time the “Ronde van Noordholland”, a yearly cycle course, was visiting this village.
2 tablespoons oil
1 tea spoon mild curry paste
500 ml chicken broth
200 ml coconut milk
1 lemon, cleaned, skin rasped
8 large shrimps
1 tablespoon coriander, chopped
Heat 1 spoon oil, put the curry paste in and bake until it starts to smell.
Add the chicken broth and coconut milk. Wait until it cooks.,
Add 1 teaspoon of the lemon rasp and boil the soup for 5 minutes.
Put some oil on the shrimps and grill them (3-5 min)
Put the soup in 8 small glasses, put a shrimp on the rim and add some coriander.
Note: lovely taste, but terrible to photograph. Oil going up, curry paste going down and white balls of the coconut milk.
Pruned (a part of) my hedge today, so not much time and energy for photography. Here’s a detail which is not pruned. Not sure, but my guess is this is the starting blossom of a blackthorn.
Some weed I picked from my garden. It was late and dark.
Never too old to learn 🙂 So this is a “forget-me-not”, or “vergeet-me-nietje” (in Dutch). I knew such a flower existed, but I didn’t know I had it in my garden.
