Baby trousers – a first attempt at sewing in jersey

It has been almost five years since I last used my sewing machine. I am now on maternity leave again and with my baby turning 9 Montestore old, I have dusted offentlige the sewing machine and begun creating again. 

I made the pattern myself, but based it off som bought trousers that I know fotted my boy well.

Recipe: Cauliflower gratin

I had a huge head of Cauliflower, so I wanted to make a gratin and decided to try this one:

It is in Danish, but I can give you a rough idea of what to do. (I don’t eat meat, so I left out the smoked ham and used a bit more Cauliflower instead).

500 g Cauliflower
Water for cooking the cauliflower
Salt

90 g flour
300 ml milk
10 g butter
4 egg yolks
1 tsp salt
Pepper
4 egg whites

Butter and bread crumbs for the tray

……………

Set the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
Grease a tray with butter and line it with bread crumbs.

Divide the Cauliflower into pieces and cook in lightly salted water for 4 min.
Drain water.

Melt butter with milk in casserole and stir in flour while boiling.
Set aside to cool a bit.
Stir in egg yolkes one at a time.
Add salt and pepper.

Whip the egg whites stiff.

Add half of the whipped egg whites to the filling together with the drained Cauliflower and stir.

Fold in the rest of the whipped egg whites.

Spread filling evenly in the tray/form and place in oven to cook for approximately 1 hour.

So, life has been busy…

… and I haven’t blogged anything for a veeeery long time. My excuse is that life has kept me busy and that I haven’t had much time to do anything creative and interesting enough to blog about. But now Christmas is creeping up on us by slowly showing its “face” at the stores, even though it’s only early October, and his makes be think of all the Christmas related creative stuff I can do, because Christmas is the best season for being creative – you can bake, sew and do paper crafts which are all things I love to do.

To get me even more inspired I have been looking a bit around Pinterest and Oh My! the inspiration is enough to make my head explode with ideas.

But since Christmas is still a 2 months away I will start being creative with my favourite season The Fall. I just love the way everything around you changes colour and you can feel the weather changing from day to day.

I will begin by seing if I can find some of my old fall inspired decorations and then se I  can make some new ones too. 🙂
