Corner view: What's for lunch

Open or closed sandwiches when we don't feel like spending time in the kitchen cooking warm meals ... and to follow, coffee, of course :)

More lunch suggestions around the world, starting here.

This Easter

has been cold and rainy. We did no go into town to see the processions, if there were any, because of the heavy rain showers.

The sky and the clouds have been very beautiful to watch though.

Last week I'd ordered some organic fruits and vegetables online. One item was lime (limas in Spanish) and I received these yellow ones you see on the first photo.

As I searched the internet for a recipe for orange marmelade (I had also bought some oranges) I came across this recipe on David Leibovitz' site which made me believe that those limes were bergamot lemons.

I really love twinings earl grey tea because of the bergamot taste, but I never realized that this flavour is of a kind of lemon. So I made lemon marmelade ... . Mine got a lot darker though than on the photos on David Leibovitz' site as I only had dark cane sugar. Those limes were definately of the bergamot type and the taste so good.

The orange marmelade will be for another day:)

Have a great weekend.

There is a(n old) Danish proverb saying:
Ude godt, men hjemme bedst.
Translation: It's good to be out (and about), but at home is best.
Possible Interpretation: Seeing different things (cultures) is good, but we still prefer our own way of life.
Possible Interpretation: Can also be meant as a acknowledgement of you or someone else being homesick.

This weekend

we discovered a tiny little railway station (the train between Málaga and Ronda) in Álora where the time was 9 to 3 ...

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.

Albert Einstein

and I think it would be very sad if there were no seasons.

I have discovered lavenders, thyme, almond and olive trees on the land of our new home and a lot of wild spring flowers I don't know the names of ... yet. With time I hope to learn a lot more about all this.

I'm back

Packing done, internet installed ...

but I must admit that this very pretty Spring is distracting my unpacking :)
