New mile stone - 200 blog postings

Hannibal the Cat on the look out for new blog posts about life in the kitchen and kitchen garden belonging to "his land-lady". As Hannibal the Cat not are able to vote on my blog, I hope you will use the opportunity instead of. I need your vote about, which type of muffin I should bake for a picnic row in the coming week-end. I am leaving it in your hands to make this decision !!!! (voting ended 5 August 2011).

This blog post is actual blog post number 200 on my blog, so yet another mile stone, which I have achieved blogging about activities in my kitchen and kitchen garden as well as eating out.

Therefore I would like to put focus on two of the overall five most popular on this blog:

  1. TUC cake
  2. Blooming apple tree
  3. Fantastic fast-food meal at Beta
  4. Ice cream for lunch
  5. Home-made yogurt
It is amazing to see, how popular the post about the blooming apple tree in my garden is.

The apple tree was full many beautiful white flowers in April (the picture to left) and at the time being I will able to pick 3 apples later here in August (the picture to right).

My family apple was also blooming less, but I am getting NO apples this year :-(

In the post about my blooming apple tree I also mentioned my raspberry bush having small flowers. And 2011 has turned out to the best year for harvesting my own raspberries, which I have used as topping on breakfast cereals as well as preserving them in  raspberry jam, raspberry vodka and raspberry vinegar.

My fig tree is not doing very well at all concerning growing figs. I have only found ONE fig on it, and it is very slow in maturing !!!

It is very interesting for me to see, how a new post from mid-end of July month already has moved into a position as top 4. Here I am referring to the post about eating more or less nothing else than ice cream for lunch on a picnic row from Aalborg to Aabybro Dairy.

And the post about making home-made yogurt has also managed to move into a top 5 position. I am planning to made other dairy fermentation in the kitchen here in autumn, so be on the look out for these. Perhaps not like Hannibal the Cat in a tree !!!!

The actual starting point for me creating this blog was/is to bake my way through the baking book called "Hjemmebagt". Here it looks like, that I am in stand still position, as I have so fare baked 11 recipes out of 73 in total. And the last time I used this baking book was back in May month. I believe I will start to bake again after the summer vacation period is over.

Meanwhile I have got "Almanak" by Claus Meyer as a birthday present, which I so fare have tried two times using raspberries from my kitchen garden.

Together with some friends I have also been having our very own blog event in form of the very first selection process of THE BEST recipe for a specific dish. Here we started with lemon mousse (citron fromage in Danish). Next time we will remain in the lemon corner with focus on THE BEST recipe for lemon cake also known as lemon moon (citronmåne in Danish).

Since the last posting about a new mile stone on my blog I have for some unknown reason started to have quiet many readers in Portugal. Welcome to you as well :-)
