Pie is the Path to the Outsize

So I hope you also had a nice Star Wars day or (in my case) weekend. Our Star Wars weekend was very springlike! We had green asparagus with smoked salmon and eggs: And a Whiskey Mai Tai (I had no rum around): With a Grenadine Darth Vader Ice Cube! And we ended our dinner with…

The curious incident of the bunny in the Easter-time

I know I’m not really blogging a lot the last weeks…maybe I get more time and a clearer head in the future…. But here’s a short review on our Easter weekend, starting with Good Friday and our Meatless dinner: I made a Pasta with mussels and squid 1 glass fish stock 200 ml white wine…

The butler, the bounty hunter and the wardrobe

First of all the Movie ‘The Help’ mysteriously turned into ‘The Butler’, a great journey through U.S. history in a soft tone and without too much pathos and with a great cast even in the smallest parts. Even Darth Vader liked the movie…but he didn’t make it to the end, he was Cherry Coke flavored…

Sad Nostalgy

You won’t believe me, but last Sunday was the first time I ever saw ‘The force awakens’, I got it as a Christmas present and I had to admit that I enjoyed it more seeing Carrie Fisher’s Leia again than Han Solo….and than 2 days later that tragic news. I was ten years old when…

Lost in Relocation – A Star Wars Story

Today is a Star Wars day because Rogue One is at the cinema now, so I need a Star Wars post. Looking at old photo-files I found this and there is a sad story behind it (not really sad, just strange) Years ago I made my sista two shopping bags for Christmas, one was with NIN…

And here is my recipe for it: Rheinischer Sauerbraten 1 kg…

A dark sided start of the week and finger losing photo trips

This week took a dark start with Mr. Vader himself and a Stromtrooper on Monday’s and Tuesday’s calendar door: (Oh dear Sunday was a Tie-Fighter!!) Is the dark side really stronger? Stay tuned until December 24th!!! My fingers had a very bad day, first I cut my thumb with a scissors at work and then…

Last steps and first signs

So here are pictures of our Star Wars Advent Calendar door 2 -4 And we also finished decorating our balcony which looks like this in the end: And this weekend we had the first real sign of winter:

Of Apes and droids

So today we’ve opened the first door of our advent calendar and of course it’s  Star Wars calendar! And what was behind door number one? A chocolate R2-D2! Hey I really like R2-D2, he is a great character. Droids are good characters in general, looking forward to see K-2SO, the trailers look promising…. But back…

Appendix Perdelira

There are two more things for today. The first is a picture of Hannibal And I have to talk about some news I got last week which disturbed me a bit. My sista play Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes and she told me that now there are also ships to fight with….okay no bad idea…
