Focaccia recipe

Thank you all for your kind words about the little grenadiers, which are now secretly conquering town.

I will be away until the end of the week but - as some of you had asked for - I didn´t want to leave without
sharing the recipe for the focaccia


Have a good time, maybe with baking Italian bread, or making little paper people for your town?

sea kings

"They had more beautiful voices than any human being could have; and before the approach of a storm, and when they expected a ship would be lost, they swam before the vessel, and sang sweetly of the delights to be found in the depths of the sea, and begging the sailors not to fear if they sank to the bottom. But the sailors could not understand the song, they took it for the howling of the storm. And these things were never to be beautiful for them; for if the ship sank, the men were drowned, and their dead bodies alone reached the palace of the Sea King."

Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid


Wishing you a magical weekend!
