Hello ladies, I hope you are not too cold where you are. I heard that the weather in some parts of America feels like Spring already. Next week it should go up to 12°C again here, which is better than these ice cold winds! When I'm warm inside I don't mind a bit of snow though.
Just sharing some cards I made with the colour-blocking technique, which involves masking to block off the inked areas.
I have been creative in other ways too... I am discovering cookery as never before and I love it!!
I even make my own chicken liver paté now (see above) and finally making use of the gorgeous herbs from the garden. Ages ago I found these old French Terrine pots (firefast) at a rummage sale, so happy with them now!
The Lemon tart is a recipe which uses a whole lemon, no squeezing out the juice or grating the rind - the whole lemon went in the Food Processor in thin slices - these are the kind of recipes I'm looking for! If this appeals to you too here is the recipe.
In all the twenty years I have been in France I have never made my own Paella - but I did last night. I received a beautiful Cook Book which is called 'Ministry of Food', from Jamie Olivier (an English man), from a flickr friend called Betty from the USA. Can you imagine - how generous the American ladies are. Thats where I learned a simple recipe for Paella and it was delicious. It gave me a sense of satisfaction. I couldn't take a picture because it was evening. And tonight, because it is DH's birthday I am going to treat the family to a lovely couscous!
I think that only a couple of new stamps might resuscitate my stamping inspiration... but that will have to wait a week!
So thats the news until now from my side of the world.
Have a great week!
