Back to pre-Christmas time - picspam

Czech Christmas has lots of traditions and one of these is cooking special things: cakes, rich potato salad with mayo, Christmas plaited pastry with raisins and almonds called "vánočka" and others. I am an average Czech woman and I am not as good as my friend Marcela from our village but I can do something and I am proud of that.:-)

Honeybreads

I promised to myself NOT to get involved into a usual baking madness this Christmas. Mind you, women here get crazy every year, baking at least 7 different kinds of Christmas cakes, some devoted ones even 20! Well, I have 5 (so far) but unfortunately there are our delicious honeybreads and these should be decorated.
Yesterday I prepared icing, a special plastic bag for decorating and all the honeybreads. I started about 5 pm and finished at half past 11 pm....totally knackered. But even though my first pieces were clumsy, I became better after a while. I am quite proud of them.

A trip with friends

Saturday was such a special day! Together with a group of my friends, we took a different route again to the "legendary pub in Plešovice".
And we were so lucky because the weather was, probably only for us, exceptionally beautiful, sunny and not very cold - the only day in the whole week.

One tooth less and a picspam

vjezkova
Yesterday, my lady dentist pulled out my big dead molar. She did try to save it but the canals were closed and no one was able to clean them and the tooth was VERY tender, ready to torment me at Christmas. So - there was a consensus and we did it on the spot. But - the anaesthetics didn´t seem to work on me, she had to duplicate the dose but then it went out smoothly. Ugly one, I tell you. I was so happy to survive with flying colours!

These days

Winter is back with freezing even during the days. But at least we could see some sun yesterday and today. I try to catch up with all my regular appointments at the doctors. These are in two towns and I have to go there by car if I don´t want to lose the light part of the day.Read more...Collapse )
