Ett något annorlunda restaurangbesök … en vegetarisk pop up !

 

Häromkvällen var vi & käkade vegetariskt på en pop-up restaurang ?
utplacerad i en liten söt skogsbacke belägen mellan hyreshusen i Hammarbyhöjden

Det handlade om närodlat & närlagat,  dvs. direkt från odlingen till våra tallrikar.

Lite gott plock innan de fyra varmrätterna serverades.
Kålrabbi med getost & en fantastiskt god balsamico!

squashblomma

vegetariskt

Friterad squashblomma fylld med ricottaost smakade också ljuvligt gott.
Det ska jag testa att göra här hemma, vi har så många squashblommor just nu, tänker att det passar super till kvällens grillade seabream.

Odlaren/kocken fortsatte plocka & laga sina grönsaker över grillen.

Vi gäster,  åt, drack, pratade & skrattade. Det blir en väldigt öppen & lätt känsla när man sitter såhär tillsammans i skogsdunge.
Inga konstigheter liksom!

vegetariskt

Så roligt att även denna kväll få prova på smaker jag aldrig tillagat
tidigare.

Kvällen fortsatte länge tills kylan & mörkret landade över oss.
Det var en fin kväll, en kväll att plocka in i minnenas påse!

Alla går på Formex utom jag – jag letar badrumsinredning

Hej hej

 

Skojigt att vara i Stockholm när Formex pågår, man träffar alltid inredningsfolk/bloggare från hela landet, och man träffar alltid denna snygga donna :-)!

I år går jag inte på mässan då jag har en massa annat jobb här och tiden räcker inte till bägge delarna, måste prioritera.

Inredning från HTH

 

Imorgon ska jag leta badrumsinredning åt en kund, sedan ska jag träffa mina kunder från Abu Dhabi och kika lite på lampor bland annat.

Men om vi återgår till det där med badrum. Bland annat takdusch, vattenfallskran, fast inredning (kommod, skåp etc) och badkar ska jag leta efter imorgon, så om ni har tips på butiker med riktigt trevligt utbud tar jag gärna emot det.

Piñatex

In looking towards the future of packaging and viable materials to make fashion, accessories, furnishings, car products, and more, Dr. Carmen Hijosa has harnessed the power of pineapple. Piñatex is a natural and sustainable non-woven textile made from the fibers of pineapple leaves. Developed by Ananas Anam, the material is a by-product of the pineapple harvest, requiring no extra land, water, fertilizers, or pesticides. Leather is not only harder to come by but rather expensive, and this alternative option is just as reliable and strong. And don’t worry, no pineapples are harmed in the making of Piñatex!

The current product range of Piñatex is available for brands that specialize in footwear, fashion, and furnishing, but we hope to see more of it soon. Piñatex answers the call for alternative materials that don’t waste natural resources, harm animals, or pollute the environment.

“Piñatex™ was created by Dr. Carmen Hijosa. Carmen’s journey began in Spain, but her career has taken her across the globe, from Ireland to Germany, to the UK and The Philippines. She worked in both the design and manufacture of leather goods for many years before going to the Philippines to carry out further research into the development of products made from natural fibres.”

“A breakthrough came when she realized that she could make a non-woven textile, a fabric bonded together without knitting or weaving, from the long fibres found in pineapple leaves. The culmination of her work resulted in the creation of Piñatex, a unique natural and sustainable textile made from pineapple leaf fibres, a by-product from the pineapple harvest.

While you are reading these lines, Carmen Hijosa and her team are working in London. On the other side of the globe, the Filipino farmers are extracting the fibres from the pineapple leaves. The fibres are then sent to a textile finishing company in Spain where the transformation from a fiber mesh into Piñatex takes place. This is the Piñatex magic.”

“The fibres that make Piñatex™ come from pineapple leaves. The fibres are extracted from the leaves during a process called decortication, which is done at the plantation by the farming community. Furthermore, the by-product of decortication is bio-mass, which can be further converted into organic fertilizer or bio-gas. Both the extraction of the fibers and the consequent bio-mass will bring added revenue stream to the farming communities. The fibres then undergo an industrial process to become a nonwoven textile, which is the base of our material Piñatex™.”

“The final step in the making of Piñatex™ takes place at a textile finishing company in Spain, where our unique finishing process is done before being shipped all over the world. With leather becoming more scarce and expensive, there is an enormous opening in the market for alternative materials, which to date have been partially filled by plastics and technical textiles. The arrival of a suitable material of natural origins such as Piñatex is likely to be a welcome addition in this growing market segment.”

Barista Coffee

Wake up and smell the coffee! Then open your eyes and look at its packaging. Skybox Design Agency designed the brand identity and packaging concept for The Barista, a brand targeting coffee loving Russians.

“Contrary to what is common in the coffee industry, we created a very catching color palette using white packages. Recognizable. By adding particular colors and varnish patterns to each specific blend diversification was stretched in a subtle but qualitative way.”

The result is a strong brand identity which features on a iconic packaging that stands out. What we love most is the clear colour distinction for the different blends and the contemporary use of icons and patterns. Flavoursome and delicate, like the perfect cup of coffee!

GATHER

Sustainable food…for pets? Petcurean has released GATHER, a new brand of cat and dog foods that are made from certified organic, non-GMO, and sustainable ingredients—nothing genetically engineered. This is the first Canadian-manufactured dry dog food to get the MSC certification, which is a label the Marine Stewardship Council grants to seafood that’s been caught by fisheries that follow sustainable practices for the environment.

Rick van Schagen, president of Petcurean, said, “As a company, we’ve always been committed to providing nutritious, quality recipes for pets using whole food ingredients, and with GATHER, we’re taking our commitment one step further by meeting the growing consumer demand for complete responsibility and accountability. We took time to seek and find partners whose integrity, transparency and sustainability practices mean we can deliver functional, whole foods from the earth and oceans to keep pets healthy, happy and loving life, as naturally as possible. Consumers are increasingly demanding unique, natural brands—we created GATHER to be proactive and ready to meet that demand.”

GATHER features three varieties: Wild Ocean, Free Acres and Endless Valley. Each one features an outdoor scene that elicits warm, comforting feelings. On the bottom right of every bag is an image to indicate whether it’s for dogs or cats, and the front includes icons to indicate GATHER’s organic, sustainable qualities. The traditional font exudes simplicity in the ingredients they use and feels welcoming, appealing to pet owners who want the best for their furry friend.

Jay Lugar, program director for MSC in Canada stated, “We applaud Petcurean for bringing seafood sustainability to the forefront in a category where the provenance and sustainability of seafood is often an afterthought. By purchasing the MSC certified GATHER formula, dog owners directly support fisheries and fishermen who care about the environment and protecting the stocks they fish for the future.”

Allt fanns där av en anledning – och det kändes

_DSC3758

 

Det här är den ynka lilla bild jag hann ladda upp innan jag blev utkastad, och inkastad, och utkastad igen från nätet i morse, morr!

Hade tänkt visa er några bilder från ett reportage jag fotade i Karlstad för några år sedan. Bilderna såldes till Allt i Hemmet tror jag…

Älskade verkligen det hemmet. Allt fanns där av en anledning, inget fanns där av en slump, och sådant känns 🙂

Nåväl, jag får återkomma med fler bilder när jag får ordning på min uppkoppling. Just nu sitter jag på tåget på väg till Sthlm det är därför det funkar, jippi!!

Väldigt tidig morgon och ett boktips

 

Vaknade alldeles för tidigt, soluppgångstidigt … kokar lite te,
på med morgonrock & i sällskap av Eskil traskar jag ut i trädgården.

soluppgång

En varm kopp te i tystnaden såhär på bryggan … fantastiskt!

soluppgång

soluppgång

Det är så sällan jag är uppe vid denna tid, så när det händer måste jag liksom bara fota. Härligt att kunna kika tillbaka på under de där gråa kalla höst/vinterkvällar när man inte lyckats få en skymt av solen under hela dagen.

sovrum

Tillbaka i den varma sängen igen plockar jag upp den sista sommarpocketboken för i år.

sovrum

Liane Moriartys bok Öppnas i händelse av min död  en lättläst bok inom feelgoodgenren, en bok om lögner, svek & framförallt hemligheter.

Jag gillade den, den gav en insyn i hur små obetydliga händelser kan få oerhörda konsekvenser & hur människors vägar kan korsas på oväntade sätt.
Ni som läst den, vad tyckte ni?

Nu är mitt bokförråd slut,
sommarens böcker utlästa,
tips på några bra böcker mottages tacksamt.

Goa kollegor på Sköna Hem (utom Helena N som flyttat till Elle)

 

Idag sticker jag till Stockholm för två dagar. Några möten är inbokade och sedan ska jag söka badrumsinspiration till ett inredningsjobbjobb jag håller på med åt en kund.

Jag har varit vaken sedan 05.00 i morse för att arbeta, men det har inte blivit något gjort på grund av det jäkla bredbandet som beslutat sig för att inte funka just idag. Är nu på gränsen till nervsammanbrott efter att ha försökt lösa situationen med Tele2 som inte ens hittar vårt abonnemang i sitt system!!! Smaka på den ni, grrrrrrr!!!

 

På återseende!
