I made warm sandwiches the other day and I wanted to have curry on them. I know where the different jars stands so I just stretched to the spice shelf and brought down the one I wanted. I poured on quite a lot but got a bit confused when I looked at what I had done. The color wasn’t right, instead of this bright yellowish/orange color it was dark brown. I did wonder if a spice could become too old, so that it actually changed color?
But then I smelled that it had the wrong scent as well🙂 I took a look at the bottle and realized that I had poured lots of cinnamon on my sandwiches🙂🙂 :-)I tried to blow it away but it already stuck like glue🙂 I know that they very often use cinnamon in Thai food so I just poured some curry over it all and tossed it in the electric grill. It actually tasted really good🙂 So I’ll keep on having cinnamon but perhaps not that much in the future🙂
The sun comes and goes today but it is rather warm and we had some drizzle as well for a while. I won’t complain about that rain, it is my excuse to not mow any lawn today🙂 The grass is rather low to be honest so I think it can wait another week before it looks to bad🙂 Instead I finally started to repair my fire heated stove. The inside, some kind of concrete, was slowly falling apart and I needed to repair it before the season started.
I had already bought that special concrete/ cement long ago so I just mixed it together as it said on the bucket. It was totally impossible to use because it just got too dry, so I added more water, just very little and it worked perfect. It says on the bucket that I can start a fire in it after three days but only for a short while so the concrete doesn’t crack. I think I’ll wait at least a week before I use the stove, it’s better it dries a bit longer so the risk gets smaller. It was an easy job to do but that doesn’t mean I want to do it often🙂
Now I have less that 4% space left on this old blog so the move will happen soon, so here’s the address again: The Cottage by the Crane lake part two. It is time for some lunch and I think I’ll make a couple of warm sandwiches, with cinnamon and curry🙂
Have a great day!
