well, there are some things that makes me particulary pleased.
one is of course, studying maps and searching new walking routes..
but there is something else that makes me even more happy.
when a cutting roots! :)))
in these case...finally after several years of trying a cutting of lemon verbena
here it is together with Houttuynia cordata "Chamaeleon"
(try this little plant, if you are lucky it will invade your garden with it's small colourful leaves!)
and Busy Lizzie (impatiens walleriana)
(another very very pleasant and satisfactory plant.)
so...after 10days of steady rain, today..some sun came out!
I took the chance to set the table outside.
I didn't have much time (and lookin up into the sky I hurry anyway :))
so I made very simple.
I cut some long branches of my Rosa Banksiae Alba Plena,
a very very hardy rose, perfumed and without thorns and branches
of Robinia Pseudoacacia.
but it looked so lonley on the old tablecloth..so to cheer up..
I put some radicchio salad together.
well...it is not very fashionable but it made my husband and Sofia (doughter n°4) smile :))
hardware and glasses from IKEA
napkins and jug: inheritance
tablecloth: COIN - Verona (italy)
very easy, very healthy
850gr of water
5gr of fresh yeast
1,200- 1,400kg of durumwheat flour
let the yeast melt in the water, by whisking
ad the flour until you have a sticky dough.
add the salt and work for other 5min.
let raise for at least 16-18hours in a cool place covered with a plastic foil.
then spill the dough out on a table, covered with some durumwheat flour.
just fold the angles to the middle, then turn the dough upside down and dow the same
(folde the angles to the middle)
take the dough and put on a baking try (covered with baking paper o with oil)
bake in oven: 230° for ca 20min then lower to 190° and let bake for another 45min.
(no need to preheat the oven.
try it it is delicious!!! :))
it was good I hurried up..look at the sky later this day..
