The pumpkin series - continued II

One hokkaido pumpkin is just too big for just one dish - so each pumpkin I buy ends up in two to three different this one, pumpkin bread, was adapted from here
It looked great, as my pics hopefully show, I wished I had followed the recipe more closely....unfortunately I put too much nutmeg in which I cannot recommend - so I rather have a nutmeg bread than pumpkin bread - but it is still tasty at least for those who like nutmeg...

Autumnal sunsets

One good thing about those last sunny and warm days was that you could still sit outside without freezing and enjoy the beautiful autumnal sunsets.
This is one of my favourite spots in Heidelberg, down along the Neckar looking at the old "Wehrsteeg".
Such beautiful and warm colours....and serenity...

The pumpkin series - continued.

I feel like Im living on pumpkin at the moment, this time it is a pumpkin curry with carots and potatoes! We still have a huge pot on the stove so it will still be pumpkin for a few more days. At least, Im creating some autumn atmosphere...although it is 30 degrees celcius outside :-)
Cant wait for the leaves to turn red and orange, some chilly air and spiced apple juice with some cookies...or pumpkin pie :-)

But for now, here is the curry...
and sorry this seems to become a food blog but since I stopped my beloved life of travels and settled down in Heidelberg, scenery isnt changing as quickly as before so my cooking and baking adventures are becoming my photo models :-)

The curry, as I said....

Enjoying Coffee

I recently started taking pictures of coffee cups at special places to remind me of some relaxing minutes when i paused for a cup of creamy cappuccino. Here is an insight - coffee in the alps, in Venice, Bordeaux and on my balcony...enjoy a cup of coffee on this beautiful and sunny sunday afternoon!
