wednesday: chalk and dust

with one comment


This old chalkboard is a close friend of mine. I heart the look but detest the dust. This is my everyday.

Wednesday: on the stoop

with 4 comments

The rhubarb wanted to sit on the stoop one last time before it went into the pot.

Rhubarb Compote
Adapted from Dana Cree

If you don’t have any Grand Marnier, just substitute water, and consider adding some grated orange zest – just a bit, to taste – at the end of the cooking time.

1 lb. rhubarb, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
Grand Marnier

In a medium bowl, toss the rhubarb with the sugar. Put the butter in a heavy medium saucepan, and melt it over medium heat. Add the rhubarb and its sugar and a splash of Grand Marnier, and cook, undisturbed, for about two minutes, or until the rhubarb begins to release its juices. Then give it a good stir, reduce the heat to medium-low, and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until all the juices are released and the compote begins to thicken, about 15 minutes. When the compote is ready, it will be thick and saucy, with a few tender, juicy lumps of rhubarb remaining. Taste for sweetness; I sometimes like to add a bit more sugar.

The compote will keep for about a week in the refrigerator. Serve warm, cold, or at room temperature, with plain yogurt, ice cream, whipped cream, or nothing at all.

wednesday: bed to be made mess

bed to be made mess

A conversation from perhaps 10 years ago…

Mum: Go make your bed.
Me: But why? I’m going to sleep in it again tonight and it’ll be messy again.

Ah, the folly of youth.

living in the same city for almost nine years, i sometimes get pretty tired of the streets i walk. to find new inspiration when feeling like this i try to find places or details that don’t look like the things i find typical of gothenburg. what do you do?
