Happy Sunday Everyone! I am just done with the kitchen.....Thanks to my thermomix we had a great dinner......even got the cats seal of approval. You will understand more when you see the pictures.

Please forgive the blurry picture, I was just a tad upset with him....     :)

Oh what a beautiful morning

Most peple lay in a hammock and read a book, take a nap, or just well ponder life. I, what do I do? I take pictures. We have these huge pine trees on our property and usually I hate them...the pine needles the pine cones...YUCK! BUT, the other day the sun was just perfect and I got these great shots.

Happy Sunday Everyone...

Well by now you all know that Germany won the world championship in soccer. They got their 4th star! So of course, I create a soccer tablescape. I would have loved to have a soccer ball, but alas my son is an adult now and so no more soccer balls in this house. Even better would have been a replica of the trophy(as well, getting the real one for table was so totally out of the question....duh!) Even without the soccer ball or the trophy, I think the table still looks kinda cool.

Chocolates....always gotta have some edible decorations

The lamp shades.....found the idea on the internet....found the paper at a german craft store(miracle) and ha

Is it Sunday Evening already

Wow, is it really Sunday Evening already? It feels like is was just seconds ago, that I was leaving the office to begin my 3 day weekend.

It has been anything but dull around here this past week. My week started with a busy Monday at the office followed by Yoga...yes I finally made it to class.... On Tuesday I get a message on Facebook  from a high school buddy of mine, that the Las Vegas Youth Orchestra is in town and if I had time I should go to the concert. What a musical treat.... so glad we went.

Thursday night I was one of the 4 sous chefs at the Ronald MacDonald going there and treating the familes to a sit down dinner. The strength and courage these families have, simply blows me away everytime I am there.

Friday my husband and I finally made it to the turkish farmers market in Kreuzberg. WOW, is all I can say. This will become a Friday tradition with us, I am sure!

The highlight of my week was our 1st annual 4th of July week later. Everyone was busy on the fourth and the germans were playing soccer in the world cup, so we decided to celebrate a week later. We invited some familar faces and some new ones and had a wonderful time. THankfully the weather  held and we were able to enjoy great food and good company.

And that brings us to usual that was spent doing the household chores.....and of course to the final game of the World Cup. Germany vs Argentina

Happy Sunday Everyone! Be sure to stop in this week....promise to get my "new recipe" posted soon

So I finally get around to trying out this recipe for homemade coffee syrup that I found online long ago. So easy...... 

1. you boil one cup water and one cup sugar. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. 

2. for the carmel version, you add 1/2 cup carmel sauce once the water-sugar mixture has reached a
 boil.Simmer for 15-20 minutes .

3. Let cool and then fill into your favorite bottle.


Please forgive, no picture of the final product....still have to make the pretty label and all. I promise to do that asap and then post it also. This coffee syrup will also make a great gift.
