2011_01 | Solar Eclipse

At 10am in the morning on January 4th, 2011 there was a partial solar eclipse visible from northern Europe. With up to 90% of the sun's disk being obscured in Sweden. I managed to take a couple of shots of it below using 4 pairs of sunglasses in front of the lens.

2011_01 | Crab Cakes

Making Crab Cakes - this was really tasty, although I didn't chop stuff finely enough! Oh well - will improve the next time!

2011_01 | Rack of Lamb Persillade

This is a traditional French recipe with Persil (French for ParsIey) being the foundation for the coating on the lamb. I based this loosely on Ina Gartners recipe form Barefoot Contessa. It was the best tasting dish that I've ever made. And relatively simple as well.

2011_03 | A week in Normandy

Normandy trip March 21st - 29th, 2011. These are some pictures that we took around the city of Rouen and also on our trip to the Mont Saint-Michel in western Normandy on the border with Brittany.

2011_03 | Le dîner chez Huby

Le dîner chez Huby - dîner avec nos nouveaux amis Serge et Marie-Laure Huby à Rouen - March 26th, 2011. We really should have taken more pictures. The evening was entirely in French and we had a great time. What a great way to road-test what we'd picked up over the prior 5 days. We will definitely be heading back soon.
