The best view, or panorama, of the mountain range is from across the valley on Gubalowka where tourists who aren’t in a rush often spend their first day acclimatising and taking in the spectacular views.
Finally, a perfect opportunity arose to use the half kilo of palm sugar I had bought some time ago and generally found too sweet for my liking.
I was going to take part in a 5 km run followed by a picnic to celebrate our running club’s fifth anniversary and the idea of making flapjacks sounded appropriate; firstly because they require a lot of sugar, and secondly because they were not known where I live in Poland so I thought it would be something new for my running mates to try out.
I’ve never been to the Carribean but the idea of jerk chicken, which was new to me, had been following me around for awhile, until I decided to give it a go.
Have a look through these photos and imagine you are sitting right there, on that little veranda overlooking that lake in Inle, Burma as the evening unfolds…
Who IS Godfrey Bloom?
This is not the first time I have tried to make kopytka/gnocchi and it’s probably not the last time it didn’t quite work out as expected..
The recipe instructed me to use :
1 kilo of potatoes cooked and THEN peeled
300 grams plain flour
and some grated parmezan cheese, some of which I added to the mixture (about 80 grams) and the rest was sifted over my homemade tomato sauce on the gnocchi.
So I improvised a bit; in addition to the one kilo of potatoes I added one large sweet potato (cooked and THEN peeled). I then decided that since the sweet potato weighed over half a kilo, I should add a bit more flour and another egg.
Aghh! I think that is where I got it wrong.
„I know Poland has coastline, but “beach” is the last thing I think of when imagining the Baltic”
What better way to have your feathers ruffled (should you happen to live on that coastline) than to hear a statement like that? What? No beach? I’ll show them beach.
