Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting another Tablescape Thursday.!!
the 60th this week!!
happy Anniversay Susan! :)
Please go over to her site and check out the other great tablescapes.
it is getting colder..in the last few days we have hade a very chilly wind.
today the temperature touched 16-17° I think.
probably this is one of our last lunch outside this year :(
it is soo beautiful though, the colours are very strong and the sun is shining so bright.
many trees have all the leaves on, and they are so green!
look at the wineyard behind our house, in the vally of Valquarole.
isn't it a beautiful green view?
anyway...a prepared the table on the terrace, with a decoration of leaves and seeds
from our Sycamore Maple ( acer pseduoplatanus) it makes beautiful green leaves looking as hands, very particolar flowers (green-yellow panicles) in spring, and now it has seeds or samars that are very decorative too. together with some orange coloured chilis and some strange berries from my Schefflera Actinophylla or Umbrella tree or Australian Ivy-palm.
it is a very easy growing plant, I have 3 of them with variegated leaves.
the small square sallad bowls are from Orvea supermarkets
Suppen und Eintöpfen

2 cm of fresh ginger
4 tbsp of extravergin olive oil
1 tbsp of vegetable stock cube
1,200gr of tomatoe sauce (4 cans of 400gr each , home made would be perfect)
fresh herbs (majoran, thymian, basil, chives)
1 clove of garlic
chop the shallots and let genlty fry in the olive oil, together with the garlic clove.
add the cereals and toast for 5 minutes, mixing all the time.
add the vegetable stock cube, the grated ginger and the tomatoe sauce and let cook for ca 15min.
