From Cee came a two colours or hues – challenge. I found two giraffes…no idea where or when they were photographed, but I guess they fit in!
Some like it hot…but who would guess that I was once going to quote Paris Hilton? This photo is from one of the hot areas on Iceland. Please stick to the path here…
For more hot stuff – go to Ese!
This is Earth. Isn’t it hot?
And for today, March 8, the thirsty ones are the two most lovely women I know!

Different perspectives are truly energizing…these are from one of my windows for the WordPress Challenge.

I should have gone before Christmas, but a storm closed down all transportation in the southern part of Sweden. My flight was cancelled only a couple of hours before take-off. I was finally going to meet one of my blogger friends, Maria, living in Östersund up north, and I can’t say how disappointed I was. And Maria too. We had been planning this for about half a year, and we both laughed in the phone at the disaster …there was nothing else we could do…
I had to book another flight – not until February was it possible for us to meet. I was looking forward to a lot of winter, snow and fabulous walks on their big lake, Storsjön. The trip turned out to be … something quite different, but maybe not less wonderful!

Fried liver anglaise or suédoise
Liver 700,0 gram
Bacon 280,0 gram
Flour 0,5 dl
Butter 100,0 gram
Potatoes 0,8 kilo
Creme 4,0 dl
Lingonberry jam (fresh berries – not boiled)
or capers (pickled)
How to: (25 min )
- Peel and boil potatoes.
- cut the liver into fine slices, about a centimetre. turn in flour and salt.
- Fry bacon and let the fat run off on a piece of paper.
- Heat up butter in a frying pan. When no bubbles left, put in the slices – not too close to each other. Fry 2-3 minutes on one side and 1 minute on the other.
- Warm the capers in the butter if ”anglaise”, or if ”suedoise” pour the cream in the pan and heat it up.
- Serve with capers (anglaise) or with lingonberries (suédoise).
Frying tips: Important to fry the liver fast in hot butter and not too long ( we have all tasted ”rubber”, haven’t we…) , the slices should be pink inside.

This of course means that I like liver – when I cook it myself! I remember those ”rubber soles” we had to eat at school lunches…impossible for anything but shoes. But I always liked the smell and the creme sauce. My husband also loves liver, so when we’re alone I sometimes surprise him with it. And, not only for the smell. Our children are not that interested though…they were also served rubber soles at school.
So, it’s never too late – follow the frying instructions and enjoy!
