Let There Be Light

Time to relax - at least for a moment.


Hetki aikaa rentoutua.




Be ready for a new week!

Valmiina uuteen viikkoon!

ps. had a great Finnish dinner last night - starting with slightly salted white fish and vendace roe, then tenderloin of moose with mash potatoe, chantarelle sauce and lingonberries, after that assortement of finnish cheese including Aura blue cheese, Mustapekka peppered fresh cheese, Black label emmental, Lapland cheese curd with cloudberries, and for dessert icy cranberries with hot fudge. The red wine was from Sauska winery from Villány. 
Absolutely perfect!

ps. eilen sain mahdollisuuden nauttia aivan upean suomalaisen illallisen - aluksi graaavattua siikaa ja muikun mätiä, pääruoaksi hirven sisäfilettä, perunamuusia, kanttarellikastiketta ja puolukoita, tämän jälkeen valikoima suomalaisia juustoja: auraa, Mustapekkaa, mustaleima emmentalia, leipäjuustoa ja lakkoja. Jälkiruoaksi jäisiä karpaloita & kuumaa kinuskikastiketta.
Aterian kanssa tarjoultu punaviini oli unkarilaisen Sauskan kellarista Villánysta. 
Ruoka oli selkeää ja yksinkertaista, maut puhtaita, rakenne hyvä, annoskoot sopivia.
Aivan täydellistä!

Halloumi For Lunch

 One of my favourite lunch options is grilled halloumi cheese with cherry tomatoes spiced with basilikum, black pepper & sea salt and live oil.
Takes only a couple of minutes to prepare.
Quick & easy!


Yksi suosikkilounasruokani on grillattu halloumi-juusto kirsikkatomaateilla, maustettuna tuoreella basilikalla, mustapippurilla & merisuolalla sekä oliiviöljyllä.
Valmistamiseen ei mene kuin pari minuuttia.
Helppoa & nopeaa!

December Starts in Sparkly Red!

It's 1st December and I decided to celebrate it with sparkly red nails. The color is with sparkles but not glossy at all, more like matt satin. I like it, it's different.

Lumene: 40 Brilliant Sand (Hiekan hehkua)







Made a quick manicure with these products (could have done it better, though! Especially with the cuticles).
Sally Hansen: Instant Cuticle Remover
L'Oreal: Diamond Force for weak nails as a base coat
Lumene: 40 Brilliant Sand
Essie: All-in-one 3-way glaze as a top coat

Dried Or Fresh?

I'm not a fan of dried flowers. I saw a colourful bunch of those flowers which are usually dried, but these ones were still fresh! Cheers up otherwise not-so-colourful corner of the kitchen.

Have A Break..


...and go out for a walk or jogging. Fresh air makes wonders!

Margit Island in Budapest is such a great place to get rid of the buzy hubbub of the city.





So quiet out there!

Kale Chips

Had heard so many times from different people how delicious the kale chips are, so decided to have a try.

What is needed?
1 bunch kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchement paper.
Carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems into bite size pieces. Wash and throughly dry kale. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake until the edges are brown but are not burnt, it takes about 10 to 15 mins.







 Some of them were nice & crispy, some not... but delicious, any way!



Lehtikaalilastut

1 lehtikaali
1 rkl oliiviöljyä
1 tl merisuolaa

Säädä uuni kuumenemaan 200 asteeseen. Revi kaali sopivan kokoisiksi paloiksi. Sekoita joukkoon öljy ja suola. Nosta palat uunipellille ja paista 5+10 minuutin ajan niin, että palat muuttuvat rapeiksi lastuiksi. 

Osa lastuista oli ihanan rapeita, osa ei... maku oli hyvä joka tapauksessa!
