Good Morning

Sunset 24.12 (1)

Almost unbelievable, but when even Mr. Swiss goes outside on Christmas Eve in the early evening to take a photo, there must be something going on. This was our sundown sky yesterday evening. We say in Switzerland that a red sky at night means that Santa is baking Christmas biscuits – although he should hurry.  It certainly was wonderful to see on 24th December.

Otherwise I had one of the most relaxed and stressless Chrismas that I have had in a long while. I had kept my day clear of any extras, just computer fun and cooking a meal that was easy to cook and tasted good.

This is my filet of beef with the self made herb butter in the background. I had also been busy chopping parsley for the carrots. The beef was in one piece as I prefer to cut it myself before cooking. I can then size it up to my taste.

And here it is in the pan, only needs just a few minutes and ready to serve, and it was so tender. After the food a quiet evening relaxing with a good film on the TV and reading, what more do you need?

This morning the sun is shining and temperatures are moderate, so what could be better.

Enjoy the day everyone

    • Maultaschen? I have never had one, but something I would love to try. Everyone here now makes Fondue chinoise. Not a bad idea as you do not have to cook anything yourelf, everyone does it at the table. I do not mind it, but for three people? – No, not really. Wishing you a happy whatever it is you celebrate. 🙂

    • I have many cow photos, but this one I like particularly. It was by the banks of our river at the top, taken with the 300 lens, otherwise they would have been too far away.


  1. Merry Christmas, today its Boxing Day in the land down under, Christmas was beautifully warm where I live but I fear today will be a summer scorcher…..have a great day and best wishes for 2017.

    • Summer scorcher? In my dreams. I do not even know if could manage that, seems strange when you live in the land of alps, snow and ice. Hope your Christmas was great and you did not get any sun burn – and now for the next year – have a nice one.

    • In England it goes

      “Red sky at night shepherds delight
      Red sky in the morning shepherds warning”

      It was a good dinner, but enough is enough. Yesterday veal, today ham and tomorrow chicken wings at last, something normal 🙂
