We got our mojos back

julros3

There’s been some fantastic sunny days and I should have been out taking pictures but as always I do things the wrong way around so I’ve been cooped up in the darkroom instead. I love experimenting but in some ways I’m a person of habit like sticking with the same film and developer, recently everything’s changed. I accidentally ordered the “wrong” film, a new developer and my Swedish retailer stopped selling the Lith developer that I’ve used for years so I had to try a new one from Germany. I’m glad for it! The Lith prints have a lovely “pop” to them and beautiful tones. Feels like I got my mojo back. What’s even better is coming up from the basement after hours in the dark finding out that my husband’s got his baking mojo on. Fresh baguettes, sourdough bread and a large dish of shepherds pie in the oven. My daughter got inspired and decided to try out the new baking book we bought. Also a change in life, I’ve been using the same recipe book all my life, once in a while trying something from the internet but we invested in a new cookie book. She is very pretentious so one type of cookie wasn’t enough instead she declared that we had to try three recipes. The kitchen looked like someone had dropped a flour bomb in there but the cookies were great! Especially the chocolate/almond/peanut ones, gone already.

  1. Looks delicious, I bet it tastes even better!

    I have been reading about Graham’s sourdough bread has always been a hit among everyone! Now I’m kind of hankering for a loaf. On a random note, a few days ago Graham’s roasted chili oil came to mind. I pestered Arif trying to figure out the ingredients. It’s just downright appetizing!

    Been thinking of you, your family and Hönö a lot lately. I wish you and everyone well! -Iqa-

    • Yes I wish I could post you some 🙂 He’s making Nam Prik Pao again this weekend, I’ll send you the recipe. Thinking of you to Iqa!
