The cranes are back

Always a great sign: The cranes are flying back north. We have missed their loud calling.
Good to have them back!

Cranes flying north now

As spring is here now, I tried to make ice cream and it worked out fine! Even without an ice machine.
Testing my first self made ice cream
I used a slightly moderated recipe from Matthew Evans "The real food companion".
If you want to try it, you won't regret, I think.
You need:
300 ml whipping cream
3 eggs (seperated)
60 g treacle
50 g maple syrup
1 pinch of salt

Whisk the cream til soft peaks form. Mix the treacle and the egg yolks til well combined. Add it to the cream and stir well. Whisk the egg whites til soft peaks form, add the maple syrup and the salt. Slowly add the egg white to the cream and stir well.
Put into a container and into the freezer. After about an hour, take it out again and stir well. Put it back for another 3-4 hours. Enjoy! :)

What else was I doing during the last days?
Making art of course. Nothing special, but my ever continuing journal journey.
Working at my wtj#9

More kitchen and cooking stuff of course, like spelt buns...
And another breakfast...
Or colourful smoothies...
What a(n) (he)artbreaking colour

Looking back on times we had cats. (We have lost so many cats over the years now, that I really can't stand having one anymore, but of course I miss it, especially in spring, when the hayloft used to be filled with kittens.)

Have a great time, everyone!


  1. ooooh, the cranes...what a sight...such important time markers!
    And those kittens - a perfect hayloft, if you ask me ;>}

  2. I'll be heading back north myself like one of the cranes.
    At our place in Alaska we live beneath a veritable crane highway.
    I just love that creaking honking they do and somedays they fill the sky like one big crane train.
    Nice smoothie! I'm still whizzing up some of last summer's wild blueberries that made the trip south with us.
    Have a nice weekend.
    xoxo Kim
