Have a thing for botanical gardens. The oh so pretty palm houses where the air is damp and filled with palms and other tropical and subtropical plants and the lovely garden of course. If one day I get a (for now a dream) summerhouse I want to build a greenhouse out of old windows like this and have a green roof of succulents….and that will be my own botanical garden garden. When living in NYC I often went to Brooklyn Botanic Garden and I love this place. The japanese garden is oh so lovely.

Our new hood these days is Vesterbro, Copenhagen and after a long walk the other day we passed Foderbrættet on our way home. Popped in for at late lunch and it didn’t disappoint. Read Bitchslap’s review here and heard about this hot-dog heaven from so many already even though this establishment is only 6 weeks old. Love the booths and we got to sit there. Yay! So good service which is kinda rare for Copenhagen….or maybe I’ve been gone for to long. Tested the beef, tempura cod and the merguez (lamb). It’s a tough one but think my fave was the beef hot-dog…..and then again the tempura cod was delicious as well.

New year in Copenhagen

Was so lucky we could borrow our friends apartment with fire stove…not so common in Copenhagen, you see it more here in Stockholm. Had a great breakfast at Dyrehaven cheap (compared to Sthlm prices) and filling. The avocado open faced is so good. Random prictures from Kødbyen. Testing ginger sodas from Kihoskh. Ebeltoft Gårdbryggeri was definitely the winner.

flashback fridays

before moving from copenhagen my parents came to visit and we went to eat at manfreds…i stick to the veggie daily special and that day we also shared a chocolate mousse….scrumptious! a visit to the farmers market…they have good stuff but expensive. beetroot, apple ginger juice. danish smørrebrød at halvvejen…one of my favorite lunch places in cph. went in the opposite direction with the visit to simple raw...really liked their cashew yogurt. wascator used to be our neighborhood hang out…cheap straight up coffee and really good food. packing away our records..these two gentlemen are oldies but goodies. snack-time at a friends workshop.

this & that

the laundromat around the corner where we used to live..pretty authentic don’t you think. a lovely fish swimming around in good olive oil, some rustic bread and a sparkling soda..went to eat at fortunen. more biking in more snow…the snowflakes were huge and very pretty. at the farmers market. these guys with their furry hats came strotting down the street playing a little tune. a green breakfast. breakfast in bed. lived on this island in the middle of the picture, now its very wintery and the water is frozen but what a lovely time we had living in the swedish skærgård. flowers, new job and breakfast for me.
