Ecogreen easy cooking - hummus special



As you already know I love easy cooking and green eco food is a favorite:)

This afternoon I made Hummus - one of the best things you can eat, healthy and very easy to make!



Kikärtor, hummus
 When you make hummus you need chickpeas, lemon, garlic, olive oil, cumin and tahini. I didnt have tahini but I had sundried tomatoes. I choosed making my own way of hummus using on a piece of bread with sundried tomatoes on top.

The olive oil is imported by Paulo Roberto and bought in the delicacy shop in Umeå called DUÅ

Baggböle
 Peper, salt, and cumin

Chickpea
 Everything put together, 
ready for my mixer

Kök Baggböle
 Nice homemade hummus, without tahini 
but still good enough using: 0.5 dl of olive oil, 2 pieces of garlic, 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, 
4 dl chickpeas 

AND 

cumin, salt and peper:)

Baggböle ecology
The most delicious sandwich with hummus sundried tomatoes, basil from the house, and pepper

I enjoyed it with a glass of ginger water:)

Rönnbär/Rowanberry - C-vitamin booster!


This time of the year, we have almost nothing left of our strenght system built up during last years summer, autumn being in the sun, eating much from nature. Its good having some kind of tricks helping yourself out, boostering up a bit, hopefully good enough avoiding weakness in the immune system

Höst


These berries might feel sour eating and not good at all, but they are very good for your health!


Rowanberry immune system
I picked and dried these Rowanbeeries last autumn. 
There were plenty of them last year.

Rönnbär Rowanberry

 In swedish they are called Rönnbär, and they are very
rich of C-vitamin. By eating 5-10 berries each day you secure your need of C-vitamin and hopefully you will remain healthy!

Future Life knowledge




Yes, Mrs Bumble Bee wrote about words I love very much yesterday

We dont know anything about the future
Vi vet ingenting om framtiden




Its true that we dont, but one thing is clear

 
We are all going to die 
we just dont know when



Some other great words are the those by John Lennon mentioned in the song


 "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans"

Mrs Bumble Bees Friday Speech



Hi Guys!:))

 Its me again

Mrs Bumble Bee:))
  

Baggböle

I want to talk about some words that The ArtandPlejWoman is kind of in love with:) Its her own kind of proverb and she mention them now and then as a way of treating her life

The words are:


We dont know Anything about the Future



These kind of words are of course very true and easy to agree with. The good thing is that they are the same for me as for you, because non of us can know anything about the future. Well, some things maybe..but not the big things coming. Its a good thing using them instead of worrying so much.

 The ArtandPlejWoman once had an art exhibition named like this. It took place at Burmans Musik, Umeå in 2010 as a part of the arrangment "Kulturnatta".

Vi vet ingenting om framtiden, Burmans Musik
This is the poster used during the exhibition

And yes, Fransiskus is in the painting, and I am very happy that she sticks to this kind of an icon as he is the protector of animals and ecology

Sunday beauty - outside the farmhouse


Its cold and sunny today. I plan staying inside and wait a bit before going out, as I hope the weather might turn less cold in some hours


Baggböle

This photo is a pear growing outside the wall of the farm house
Its reaching the sky and beautifully decorated with snow

I remember when growing up, we had pigs, cows, bulls, in the farmhouse..later on chickens..
and of course a hourse helping us with the farmwork
 
.. and always at least one cat present - mjauu:)) 
 
I loved being with the animals
 
Today we have no animals in the farm house, and in my village Baggböle, there is only one farmer still having animals

Glass fusing - New Necklace!





I am sooo happy! 


When I came home yesterday I had a small package in my postbox with the most beautiful necklace in it

I was looking at different bloggs some days ago at  
bloggers.com

and finally reached
 

by Grace Galdo

and I could not help it falling in love 
with this necklace:)


The "pearls" are made by the method glass fusing, a 4000 year old method The oldest glases have been found in Babylonia dated 2500 bc. The egyptians also used the method 1500 bc making glasses


This necklace is a piece of art in itself
its like a unique universe inside of it

I have been using some fused glass in my art painting lately myself, having small pieces together with the acrylic colours. Glass is a fantastic material! I got very much inspired continuing with my own creative path finding this necklace and I will continue creating experimenting my ideas into reality
