Windowsill Nursery 2018

Some images from my windowsill these days. I’m trying to grow some herbs for the kitchen from seeds. Most of it works out rather well. It’s only the Rosemary that is is a little peaky and doesn’t really seem to like growing very much. The Tomatoes were planted (from plain supermarket-tomato-slices) only about a week ago and I’m pretty satisfied with the progress. Those Chilies grow like hell and I’ll have to germinate the blossoms with a soft brush these days when I have the time and ease to do it.


First Dutch Oven Chicken Roast

My first try on the dutch oven other than for baking bread yesterday, together with some friends. Turns out, it’s an absolutely great tool, easy to use, minimum effort required and surprisingly convenient. I made five rubbed chicken legs with some potatoes, onions and a load of garlic, added pepper, herbs and a little beer and broth. Then just let it sit undisturbed for 1 1/2 hours and they came out juicy, tender and flavourful. Success!

BTW, I ended up not caring about calculating coal numbers, because – surprise! – they’re friggin’ hot and difficult to handle without tongs. I just put the determined amount underneath and then didn’t feel like bothering anymore so I just poured the rest from the chimney on top. Still worked beautifully.


Dutch Oven Coals Table

Since I’m planning to try this for the first time this evening (until now, it was only used for baking bread 🙂 ), here’s a table bringing together coals, temperature and pot size for getting your dutch oven to the right temperature:


German language only – sorry. It’s taken from here.


Chicken Spit Roast

I finally put my DIY Rotisserie to use yesterday evening. To be honest, I had no clue what to do so I just marinated 4 cut up chicken breasts in a little olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary and skewered them up. After 1 1/2 hours slowly turning over the fire, they were perfectly good, crispy outside and juicy inside. I’m definitely going to do that again.


New Cat on the Block

My stepbrother got a new housemate! Cute little fellow.


My favorite Fishing Spot

My favorite fishing spot two weeks ago in early spring, 07:30 in the morning. Just wonderful.


I made a Thing…

So, over the last few weeks I bolted and welded together some kind of a chuckwagon-kitchen-appliance for my garden firebowl. As usual I tried to use mainly scrap from the shop, recycling what I had but in this case I had to buy some steel rods and small parts.


Homemade Garlic Paste

I like garlic and besides the fresh cloves, I use a lot of store bought garlic paste for cooking when I’m in a hurry. So why not make some myself, have it fresh and have a little fun? I normally use this brand, it’s tasty, almost non-chemical and I consider it somewhat “original” since my asia store clerk strongly recommended it to me.


Spring is here!

Man! It’s so good to do do some garden work and have some time in the sunshine without freezing to death the very instant you step out of the door! We have 18 °C today! (And yes: That’s a beer 🙂 )


Sourdough Bread

So I put Hauke to a use and made a small batch of sourdough yesterday for testing. Following this Youtube Video, I made it “by feel” using a ratio of 3:2:1 (flour:water:sourdough). After letting it sit for one night it almost doubled in size and got really nice and fluffy (and a hell of a sticky substance). Baked it for 40 mins. in my trusty dutch oven and got this nice result.
