Pol-presni impro / Semi-raw impro

Zadnje čase me drži na presne in pol-presne torte.
Ker mi kuharija, kjer je treba uporabljat temperaturo,
pa naj bo v plus ali minus, nikakor ne leži, je taka kuha idealna zame.
Ta pol-presna torta je bla čista improvizacija,
zato tudi ne najbolj teksturno in vizualno posrečena
(po dveh tortah še pač nisi mojster),
je bila pa vsaj okusna.
Banana+kokos+maline.
In keksasta spodnja plast.
Mmmm.


Lately i'm all about raw and semi-raw cakes.
Since i'm not very fond of temperature based cooking,
whether it be in plus or minus, such cooking is perfect for me.
This semi-raw cake was pure improvisation,
that's why its texture and visual appearance wasn't very flattering
(it simply takes more than two cakes to make you a master),
but at least it was tasty.
Banana+coconut+raspberries.
With cookies on the bottom.
Mmmm.

Februarska retrospektiva / February retrospective

Presna malinina torta / Raw raspberry cake

Plezalke / Climbing shoes

Nevesta / The Bride

Februar je krasen mesec, ker je običajno poln novosti in že diši po pomladi.
Letos je bilo tega slednjega manj, novosti pa veliko- od okusnih do nujnih.
Prva je moj največji dosedanji gastro podvig,
ki je več kot uspel po zaslugi nasvetov izkušene pripravljalke presnih tort.
Na drugi sliki je moja rojstnodnevna želja.
(Vodnarji smo zakon.)
Samo še energijo bo treba zbrat in se odpravit v kakšno dvorano.
In moj prvi avto. Fotografija posneta na dan njegovega odhoda.
(Ja, ima ime. Po Umi Thurman.)
Tudi prvi odhod ostane v spominu.
Prvih ne pozabiš nikoli.
Tako vsaj pravijo.

February is a great month, because it's usually full of new stuff and already smells of spring.
This year the smell is delayed, but variety of new things was huge- from delicious to urgent ones.
The first one is my biggest culinary venture,
which has more than succeeded, thanks to advice from experienced raw cake chef.
On the second photo you can see my birthday wish.
(Aquarians rock.)
Now I just have to convince myself to go to a climbing hall.
And my first car. Photo was taken on the day of its departure.
(Yes, it has a name. It was named after Uma Thurman.)
The first departure is also a thing to be remembered.
You never forget the first. 
At least so they say.

Pošast / Monster

Zadnje čase imam ustvarjalno zatišje.
Čas poskušam zapravljati za stvari,
ki jim dolgo nisem posvečala pozornosti.
Veliko spim. Berem. Delam to-do liste.
Gledam filme z lestvice IMDB Top 250.
Zdaj sem pri nekje 78. mestu.
Delam še več to-do list.
Vmes se je znašla tudi nuja, da se naučim Jacksonove muve iz Thrillerja.
In tako ostane bore malo časa za šivanke in barvice in čopiče.
Ampak tale je pa za motivacijo.
Ob glasbeni spremljavi.


Lately I suffer from a lack of creativity.
I try spending time on things,
I haven't been paying much attention.
Sleeping a lot. Reading. Making to-do lists.
Watching movies from IMDB Top 250 list.
I'm somewhere around 78th place a the moment.
Making more to-do lists.
In between came also an urge to learn Jacko's moves from Thriller.
Thus leaving a very small amount of time for needles and crayons and brushes.
But this one is for motivation.
Accompanied by music.

Sneg / Snow

Sneg ima zame mnogo sopomenk.
Mraz. Mokri čevlji. Mraz. Čiščenje snega z avta. Mraz.
Pasji kakci pod snegom, ki jih odkriješ šele spomladi.
Na svojem obuvalu, seveda.
Mraz.
Čeprav imam toplo jakno, nove megagojzarje (preprosto ni mogoče, da premočijo),
ni mi treba v službo, na pasje kakce bo pa najbrž treba še lep čas počakat,
me sneg še vedno spravlja v slabo voljo.
In potem pade kakšna solza.
Ali pa je to samo želja po dežnih kapljah?


Snow has many synonyms for me.
Cold. Wet shoes. Cold. Cleaning snow off the car. Cold.
Dog poo hiding under the snow, to be discovered in spring.
On your shoe, of course.
Cold.
Although I have a warm jacket, new megahiking boots (100% waterproof),
I do not have to go to work, the dog poo will likely have to wait for some time,
snow still puts me in a bad mood.
And then some tears may drop.
Or is it just a desire for raindrops?
