Salmon and Spelt

Not really a recipe I presume.

The spelt pancake is filled with soft cheese and served with avo, smoked salmon and some young crest leaves.

I just baked the spelt pancake with the normal pancake recipe, substituting spelt flour for wheat flour. Perhaps the relation of flour to fluids is different, I didn’t measure.

You can bake them with buttermilk as well if you like.



Perhaps if you zoom in on this fountain in Barjols, Provence you will discover new species of moss..


Moustiers Sante-Marie

A charming town in Haute Provence. Some genius put a star on a cable high above the town between the cliffs and now they are famous for the star 🙂

Their altitude is 634 meter but it looks as if they can see the full 600 meters down..

Not the only Oleander, the whole of Provence seems packed with them, especially on the coast.


Spar in Salzburg


Guess who visited Spar? Looks good to me, but then I bought it..

The chocolate was still in my bag, its from the Czech Republic. A rich chocolate and chestnut butter filling, hmmm..

It is the Salzach flowing past my window there. It makes you understand why so many lieder in Austria were written about the rivers and streams.


Vienna – Franz Joseph’s city

Its his birthday today, so here is a picture for him. It is the stadium at Schoenbrun, – one of his palaces in Vienna 🙂

Odd isn’t it how leaders sometimes have the names of other countries.. Hollande, leader of France, Franz Joseph, leader of the Austro Hungarian Empire..
