Friday February 3, 2012: The TGIF edition

Monday dinner: a piece of beef and cauliflower with piccalilli. Decided to leave the cooked potatoes behind because I don’t really like them and wanted to try if just meat and vegetables is enough.

Tuesday an oven dish with red cabbage, apple, pear, potato gratin and sausage.

It has been cold all week. Temperatures around -1C (30 degrees) during the day with lots of sunshine and blue skies. What made it cold was the wind that came from the east which is the coldest wind we can get here. Below some photo’s I took while walking Bella on Wednesday.

Brrrr cold!

Wednesday dinner: pasta with spinach, onion, garlic and bacon.

Thursday dinner: kale with mashed potatoes and sausage.

On top of the cold we got snow today. It snowed all morning which made Bella very happy because she loves snow. This weekend it’s going to be even colder than the beginning of this week (-15 C / 5 degrees during the night and -5 C / 23 degrees during the day). At least the brutal wind is gone which makes the cold much more bearable.

Speaking of Bella: our little one turned 2 today. Happy birthday Bella!

Have a great weekend my dear blogger friends.

  5. Bella looks so much like my little Sophie! Aren’t Cairn’s great! I have also heard about the European cold snap. You asked about my relatives in the Netherlands. I have never met them but have corresponded a bit with them via email. Some are in Amsterdam, but I will have to look up the other city. Have a nice warm weekend.

  6. Happy Birthday Bella? Did you have a party? I have a friend that has a dog birthday party each year, with a balloons, party hats, and a cake. It is quite hilarious, but fun too. Sure looks cold there. I won’t tell you, the sun is out here, and my husband is wearing shorts. Have a good weekend, and stay warm.
