Pumpkins

pumpkin and vegetables

The pumpkin seasons comes to its end, but I´d still like to share this picture with you. I love pumpkins, they are easily prepared, cheep, healthy and there are many ways to process them.
This picture shows pumpkin slices together with onions and carrots, that I baked in the oven.
You can make all kinds of vegetables in the oven, just slice them and add some oil, salt and pepper to them. Keep them for about 20-30 minutes in the oven at 180°. If you add some potato slices to the vegetables and prepare a yoghurt dip, you have a complete meal.

London calling

Some impressions from London, hold in typical grey from october 2013.
there are hardly any typical sightseeing pictures, because I did that before.
I only visited Fullham, the Kensigton Square, the City, Brick lane, little Venice and went to the Hurlingham club, which was really interesting.

Bread

I try to always bake my own bread. The recipe is super easy and fast to make (5 minutes work & about one hour to wait). Just after the bread is done, it´s very good to eat it with salt & butter.

Ingredients:


1 cube yeast
450 ml water, lukewarm
500 g whole wheat flour
2 tsp salt
2 tablespoons vinegar
50 g of sunflower seeds
50 g of sesame
50 g of flaxseed


Grains may be omitted or exchanged (raisins, almonds, nuts).

Steps:


1. Stir yeast with water, then add all the other ingredients and stir them.

2. Put the dough into the form. I use a silicon form for this, this way you don´t have to grease  the form.

3. Directly put the form into the oven.

4. Bake 60 min at 200 ° top / bottom heat, or 50 min at 170 ° hot air. DSC_1201

Traveling Indonesia

I went to Indonesia for 3 weeks in september.

[wpgmza id=“1″]

I started in Jakarta going to Yogyakarte to see Borobudur and Prambanan. Then I left to see the Bromo and Ijen vulcanoes. By ferry the journey continued to Bali stopping at Lovina, Manduk and Ubud. To avoid the crowds at Balis beaches I went to the Gili Islands (Meno). I flew back to Jakarta over Lombok, where I saw the amazing very american characterized gigantic Malls and got an impression of the live in one of the biggest Regions in the world.
