Birthday cake low carb

Pin It

It's birthday celebration here today, so cakes were made. A cheese cake with almond base and orange jelly, and a almond-chocolate cake with vanilla cream in the middle and raspberry-jelly on top. Both cakes are low-carb.

I have made the chocolate cake once before, and know it's yummy. But, it's the first time I have made the cheese cake. The cheese filling is definitely yummy though, as it was thoroughly quality checked.

3-D origami

Pin It

I used to be very interested in origami as young, and taught myself a fair few creations. Of course, finding information and free pattern was a tad harder then, what with no internet, no Google, and no YouTube.

I was cruising around at YouTube the other day looking at how to fold napkins (yes, that's what I do, randomly cruising around on the net looking up interesting stuff like that ;)), when I stumbled across something they called 3-D origami. I was instantly intrigued. And of course, I had to give it a go. With 3-D origami you build 3-D figures using lots and lots and lots of tiny folded triangles.

Now, the figure I am trying to make, although described as an easy pattern and suitable for beginners, requires 500 triangles. Yup, you heard me. 500. Folded. Triangles.

So I started folding. And I folded. And I fold. And I will be folding tomorrow. And probably the day after that as well.

Christmas dinner in April

We had some porkrib in the freezer from Christmas, and today was the day to cook one (yup, we do have a few more waiting for bbq season to hit). Moist pork rib with yummy crackling.

Sunday breakfast

Rice porridge with chunky pieces of pork and spring onions. Can't really go wrong there :).

Saturday, just right...

Pin It

I have been home sick the whole week, which is really unusual for me. I'm not that much sick, and when I am it's normally a 1-day thing. I can't remember the last time I was sick for a whole week.

Anyway, I am finally starting to get better, and it's Saturday, and the snow is melting, and life is good :).
