« Blog Birthday Party - the report. | Main | Guess what I did yesterday... »

Jun 29, 2006



I had to reread one of your sentences twice to make sure I'd understand properly, and then I giggled. Sometimes it's so easy to forget that in many parts of the world 30 degrees *is* considered sweltering heat. Melbourne is one of the cooler cities of Australia, but 30 degrees is pretty standard through summer and autumn. I'm not fond of any temperature above 24, personally. Definitely a winter person!


I have never been cagey about the fact that your recipes are of the kind that I like and most of my "blog-found" recipes originate from yours. So it's not just a saying that I will definitely try both recipes (very) soon... We also have gone thru a heat wave here but today it's much cooler. Nevertheless, cold treats are so much tastier... A nice weekend to You and Yours, angelika


Yes, I consider this the perfect summer food. I've made it for years and I'm 100% with you, I may never have made it the same way twice but it's always wonderful.
Now, about that blind date, I'm thinking that's one I haven't tried yet!
Stay cool!


There was vodka in our gazpacho shots??? They were delicious and I will definitely 'steal' the idea for entertaining (especially back home, where vodka shot glasses abound:)
Puff pastry twists were great, too!


hi jo, haven't visited ur blog in a while - gazpacho shots are a great idea! thanks! weather over here is always hot - so something cooling like gazpacho is always welcome! :)



this site is great! and i think i can find a lot of hints and tips for my next party (i told you on sunday, 9th of july). thanks a lot for the picnic and hopefully we can see each other in vienna again.

best wishes to you,


Niki, of course this must sound strange to you - but we had 35C and it was almost unbearable last weekend. Lucky that we could dip our feet in the Thames at the Royal Regatta on Saturday!!! I don't like the cold too much either, I must say - so that makes me a spring and autumn person, I guess? I'd like it to be 20-25C all year round!
Pille, no Vodka this time (for very selfish reasons), but I do add it sometimes...

Ich wünsche dir wunderschöne Ferien und einen gelungenen Urlaub mit deiner Familie.

Lg, Martina


oooh. Now those look divine. I could have used one or two today.

oh and join us any time for weekend baby blogging. We have it every week


I like to imagine myself as a model, like a fashion type.
It never happened for me, so now I'm going the
glamour route. I came back
for the one in my green heels two days later.
The weather was warm so being bottomless was actually a lot of fun.
