I love painting!

I love painting!

Dears,

years ago when I had enough place in my former flat on the countryside I started to paint.
Freestyle, I would never call myself a painter. I just wanted originals on my walls and the ones I saw where either not my style or just too expensive.
Since I moved to Munich where the renting costs are exploding the place to spread all colors around me isn’t given anymore but I still have my originals surrounding me.

I hope that one day I will start again to paint something, until then I will show the already painted to you.

Interpretations are welcome as I was always thinking how professional interpret – maybe some may fit 🙂
Here’s one of the first which was ready to find its place on my wall, finalized in May 2005.

Why the heck…

Why the heck…

…do good movies start in the middle of the night
…does a white denim require washing after once worn
…does it rain during the weekend although the whole week was sunny
…is the chocolate empty whenever you would need it most
…is a helicopter circling above my area in the middle of the night
…is it colder in my flat than outside
…is not everyone talking proper english
…is my work to do list getting longer each day although I’m working
…can’t I put everything in the tumble dryer without shrinking
What “why the heck”s do you have?
Slowly calming down – don’t lose hope,
Miss Faith

The third and last recipe of my cooking box test week

The third and last recipe of my cooking box test week

I really have to recommend www.kochabo.de
These guys have wonderful recipes and high quality food which they deliver – even for people new to cooking it’s easy to follow and have a nice dinner.

The last recipe of the week was a Tomatoe-Ricotta-Tarte
I was already looking forward to cook it as I love tomatoes as well as ricotta cheese.
As side dish we had salad.
It’s almost impossible to have a full dinner prepared quicker. Except of grating the Parmesan cheese and cutting the tomatoes nothing needs to be prepared upfront.
According to the recipe it was complete vegetarian but we changed it slightly and added bacon to have a bit of another taste inside.
Absolutely delicious!!! In less than half an hour everything was ready to be served.
And once again – if someone wants the full recipe, just let me know and I send it through.

The first time I prepared Tofu…

The first time I prepared Tofu…

…still cooking recipes from my cooking box test I went to the second recipe which was
stem cabbage radish vegetables with sesame tofu.

I like both, stem cabbage as well as radish, but the combination of them prepared with yoghurt, basil and lemon scoring was totally new to me. Tofu is something I never prepared before – it’s getting a new thrill.
My sister already told me upfront that you need many spices for the tofu to have a taste in the end so I put more soya sauce than mentioned in the recipe to have it marinated.
Sesame added and fried in a pan it looked as delicious as on the picture I hot before.
The vegetables were prepared easily and after I filled the dishes it looked almost the same as on ten recipe picture.
What about the taste?
The vegetable itself was perfect, but the taste was not mine. I would have gone with simply salt pepper and a bit of cream, that would have been my personal taste.
And the completely new taste tofu – what should I say? It really looked delicious but tasted like nothing than sesame. Not even a bit of the soya sauce taste. This means a new challenge for the future – prepare it again and try to get more taste in – haha.
If someone is interested in the full recipe – just let me know and I will send it to you.

KR and a nice 1st May evening,
Miss Faith

Observation during my single vacation

Observation during my single vacationI already wrote about my first single vacation in Italy and just stepped about notes I made on one of the last days being there.
What I wrote down is the following “observation” I made while sitting alone in a gelateria with an astonishing sea view:
Never ever do I want a relationship like the ones I saw abundantly during these holidays. Bad educated, spoiled children, parents which fight each other beyond words if they should go for a swim in the midday heat or if the junior, who didn’t had proper breakfast, is allowed to have ice cream or not.
Wife and child just leaving the husband/father behind like a fool although he may has been the one working the whole year to afford these lovely family holidays alà dolce vita and couples not able or willing to break the silence which may exist between them since years.
No wonder that these poor fools die-away looking after single women – whereas they probably wouldn’t if they knew what’s on my mind. Your own fault, you douche bag, you should be able to create your own life and it seems as if you aren’t able to do so. I honestly rather accept a few skeptical glances instead of not being able to decide if I eat three ice creams in a row and lay down to catch sunshine in the midday heat. I even could go for a swim in the middle of the night if I like or skip breakfast and eat Pizza in the morning.
Women wearing these not fashionable trekking sandals (while sitting is a cafe and now trekking area within miles), too dumb to use an iPhone, meal-rimmed glasses on their noses, unvarnished and hair on the head which needed a makeover weeks ago – can they honestly believe that this is attractive? A short khaki colored skirt with senseless stitched on pockets will not improve the overall picture, even not if you look at the not pedicured feet…
Some women are wearing jewelry, these are unornamental, even if they believe that the all inclusive ribbon is posh…

Now thinking about these scenes I’m still laughing and more than happy that my relationship is far away from entering this stage (mashalla – let it stay like this). If it would nearly go into this direction I will step back to this post and remember that I never ever want to be like this! In this short observation are already so many things I don’t like that I don’t anticipate me in a situation like this. Fighting in public AND in front of the kids about nonsense, my husband longing for other women because his is not making any effort to be attractive to him any longer…sorry to say this now, but women who stop to be women because they are wives and mothers shouldn’t be too astonished if their husbands are starting to look after other skirts. I don’t say it’s an easy job to handle all at once but everyone needs time outs so why not using them for painting toenails or having the hair done every now and then?
Regards from a fresh manicured Miss Faith!
