First morning frost and it is only the 2nd of October! We were working hard in the garden yesterday. I was wondering how low the temperature would sink during the night. All the plants that I decided not just yet carry inside look all right. I’ll have to find place for them today.
Yesterday was a wonderful sunny autumn day. The leaves and acorns from the oaks in the park next to us are all over the pavement and the wind blows them into our garden. It’s truly a never-ending story. We raked, picked apples, potted plants, put furniture in the shelter, mowed the lawn with leaves to give the lawn extra strength and finally planted tulip bulbs I bought in Amsterdam a month ago. Let’s see if the rabbits get best of them!
Sunday has been a pancake morning for us but it’s been a while. It is not too much of an effort and still extra special since you don’t have to rush anywhere. Today I made traditional Finnish pancakes and served them with dried apples. They were not actually totally yet since I cut them and set to dry only yesterday.
Finnish pancakes for two: 2 eggs, 2 dl milk, 4 tbsp flour, pinch of salt and sugar. Blend well and set aside for 30 min. Fry in butter or coconut oil.
