some random Inspirations

Hi there, a busy week almost ends and I have some stuff to share with you...

Gingerbread Latte


My new discovered, favourite Starbucks flavour: Gingerbread Latte...It`s soooo yummy,you should really try it!
And don`t you think the little birdie on this winter`s edition paper cups is the cutest ever been on a paper cup??Well I do!
still the best winter latte flavour ever

Need to try to make this by myself one of those days....

two awesome movies I`m looking forward to see them
twilight
from www.imdb.com

 Yes, I admit it,I like Twilight,although I`m not a teenager anymore.I read all the books from Stephenie Meyer the films are based on and I loved them.Hopefully my best friend and I finally find some time to go see the last part Breaking Dawn 2.

the OZ
from www.imdb.com


new oz movie
from www.wikipedia.org
Yes,I know,it isn`t yet out,but since I found out about this movie,I really can`t wait to see it.Eager to find out more about it,I searched a bit and found those lovely movie posters.The same moment I was sure,that I would love OZ:The Great and Powerful...Need it to be March 8 really fast!!

It may also interest you,that I made friends with a new holiday,also called Thanksgiving,thanks to one of my favourite blogs!
Got some explaining to do,as you still don`t know me that well.Where I`m from we don`t celebrate Halloween or Thanksgiving.Nevertheless I fell in love with Halloween,which is my favourite holiday besides Christmas.
Looking at Emma`s delicious Thanksgiving recipes,like the Caramel Apple Cheesecake or the Mascarpone Pumpkin Pie,I`m all in for it!So it looks like next year I`m not only gonna host my first Halloween Party but also my first Thanksgiving dinner at my new home.
And if you like Chai tea as much as I do,you must try this recipe.I`m already looking for all the spices to try it 
Getting tired of reading,then how about some nice little music??

like Prince Royce
Yes folks,it`s cheesy and it may not fit with my music taste,but I just adore him and his music,especially those two songs...maybe because they got some personal meaning to me...
So Royce if you stumble on my blog,I would love to have you performing at my wedding :)

She`s amazing and soooo cool,isn`t she??Fine Frenzy accompanied me through my study years and thanks for all the chilly moments your music gave me every morning on my way to university!You`re so inspiring!
On that,another one 
I`m coming to an end for today,or better this week.Just finishing with some cute things I spotted in the internet.

Lovely Sunday


I love chilly Sunday`s....
They are so quiet,peacefully and looovely,because you get time to do all the things that you like.
Me,for my part,I did really enjoy today`s Sunday,doing following tings....

1.Well of course sleeping in,I love sleeping in on Sunday`s.

2. Having my morning coffee,which is the first thing I need in the morning to wake up.But on Sunday I`m always off and I take myself some time to drink my morning coffee.As  the weather was amazing today and the sun was shining,I enjoyed some quiet moment on my balcony.

Yes I know this may sound awkward,but I grew up living next to a cemetery and I think they are so beautiful and peaceful places.They have a calming effect on me.That`s why I love taking some time to go there.The tree on the last photo stands in the middle of the cemetery and is just huuuge!!And sooo beautiful...

4. Spending some time with family,a really important and nice thing to do.This includes giving some love to my dearest cat,which sadly I had to leave at my parents house,when I moved out.Didn`t wanted  to pull him out of his environment.

5. Drinking hot apple punch after a day out in the cold nature,that`s what just made my Sunday special.

Talking about apple punch,does somebody have a good recipe to do it by yourself and likes to share??Then go ahead,I still need one!

6. Welcoming the dark in bed,reading a good book.Another awesome thing to do on a cold Sunday.I love to light candles,which makes it much more cozy.
fashion box
Lately I`m in love with those new, changing light candles.

7. Relax and get inspired with some good music.Since always,I really like to listen to Colbie Caillat`s music.Honestly there`s not one single song from her,that I don`t like.She`s an amazing artist with an even more amazing voice.She`s the one,who`s able to put a smile on my face as soon as I hear one of her songs.
my favorite singer

Puzzle Pieces
 

Lucky
      


I never told you

and 2 other songs,that`s I like



Lana Del Rey - Summertime Sadness
8. I`m gonna end Sunday with a little bit of LOST.A few years ago I started watching it,but then got stuck around season 2.Recently I just started to watch it again and I`m totally hooked up!Love this series!
Lost

So I`m off to watch LOST.Wish you all a nice Sunday and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Älplermagronen


Älplermagronen recipe

Sometimes it must be something quick to do, don`t you think?At least that happened to me yesterday.I spent the whole afternoon at my favorite couple`s home,saying goodbye to them as they leave for Africa today!By the way Good trip to you guys and have fun!I`m already curious about the photos you`re gonna take...
So,coming back to what I actually wanted to say.When I got home,I was really tired and still needed to cook something.I decided to cook Älplermagronen,which is a common Swiss dish.Most important,it`s very easy to do,without a lot of effort.

What you need:
  • 15 - 30 Baby potatoes or 5 big waxy potatoes
  • 2 - 3 cups of macaroni's
  • 2 Cervelats or if they don`t sale that kind of sausage in your country you can also use ham slices cut into little pieces or beacon cubes
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 - 1 cup of milk or single cream
  • 200g = ca.7 ounces of grated cheese,you can choose every sort you want.I used Appenzeller
  • 5 slices cheese (the one you use for toasts or sandwiches),also here you can chose whatever sort you like.I again used Appenzeller
  • a bit of salt and pepper,according to your taste
  • 300 - 400g = 10.5 - 14 ounces applesauce ready to serve
The quantities of the ingredients really depend on the size of your casserole...

1.Step
Halve or quarter the potatoes according to their size.Also cut the onion in little pieces after peeling it.The cervelats you cut it into little stripe,but remember to first take off the thin skin.If you don`t use cervelats you cut your ham slices (the one you use for sandwiches) into little pieces.With beacon cubes your lucky,cause you can buy them like that and don`t need to cut them.
Now everything is ready and you only need to grease your casserole with a little bit of butter,as you don`t want your dish to remain stuck on the casserole.Start filling the casserole with the cut ingredients.
PS: I didn`t peel the potatoes,because I love eating them with skin.Of course I did wash them :D

Älplermagronen Step 1

2.Step
Add the milk/single cream and half of the grated cheese.Now gently shake the casserole,like that the grated cheese and milk are evenly distributed everywhere.Spice it up with a bit of pepper and salt or whatever spices you like.
Älplermagronen Step 2

3.Step
It`s almost done,you just need to add the rest of the grated cheese and the cheese slices as followed: First put the 5 cheese slices on top of the Älplermacaroni`s.Then you cover everything with grated cheese. 
Älplermagronen Step 3
Put your casserole in the oven at approximately 200 degrees.It takes at least 45 minutes,try the potatoes,if they are well cooked the dish is ready to serve.It is served with applesauce,both on the same plate.Usually the applesauce is cold,but I like to eat it hot,that`s why I always heat it,while the Älplermacaroni`s are in the oven.

If you`re having more time to prepare this dish,you can boil the potatoes and macaroni's first,so it won`t take that long in the oven later.Of course you can also do the applesauce by yourself.If you are interested,I`ll be happy to share the applesauce recipe with you.Or maybe you have your own recipe or tip,then be welcome to post it here!
