Will this ever become a chair again? Part II



Please do not look at the nailrows too close. I've undone the b****y (pardon my french) thing twice and I´ve come to the conclusion that it is simply impossible to get straight. I am not fond of lines that are supposed to be straight - but are not.
Well, what in life is straight anyway if you look close enough?
...hmmm...maybe I just paint the nail-ends with a coat of black paint, then they will not be so obvious...or try to live them the way they are;)

My fingertips have gone numb! And my hands are soooo heavy!

Now it´s time to make myself some dinner. I will make penne pasta with broccoli, garlic, oliveoil and pecorino cheese. It is a traditional italian cucina povera dish. So easy to make:

Cut the stem separate from the broccoli flowers. Cut the stem into pieces and boil in salted water for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli flowers and let cook for another 5 minutes or when the broccoli is al dente -ripe. Slice or cut 2 garlic cloves.
Lift the broccoli aside with a spoon and place penne pasta into the same water to boil.
Gently fry garlic in olive oil, but make sure it doesn´t burn. Add the broccoli into the pan and stir. When the pasta is ready, add to the pan and stir. Decorate your dish with plenty of pecorino cheese.
I usually also make a salad on the side.
And if you happen to have chilled white wine, go for it! Enjoy!

Puh jag förstår att du svär. Men det är otroligt jobb du gör. Jag såg inga sneda rader förrän du nämnde dem. Ta en paus och kom igen, det brukar fungera. Varma kramar /Therese

Näppärä likka sait sen valmiiksi nyt jo. Annetaan anteeksi että nastat hieman vinossa koska teit niin nopeasti hienoa jälkeä.
