Sitting in the kitchen: October

Black, huge birds from the North have arrived! This is a high autumn already. I like these birds a lot, because of their  serious appearance,both with their voice. The sounds they give are also serious and dramatic – this is something like of the throat “A!” , “A!” ( very funny). It makes an amazing atmosphere! I guess, these big, black birds must live somewhere on the North, in the Scandinavia and near the White Sea in Russia. I’ve been expecting them every year … Hundreds of birds, and such a noise! They are usually sitting on the trees here, in the afternoon, and is better not to walk under these trees… I always avoid this area. Really huge number of birds!

I love to  sit in my kitchen and watch birds by the window. ( Here is not far from the river, and next to two ponds, so lot of wild ducks are passing my window – due to I live very high). This is like a documentary, this sight!


Recently I had very yummy food, so I was watching birds and having my feast at the same time! On these images below you will see… Quiche with celery, walnuts and Roquefort cheese, ruskie pierogi ( pierogies stuffed with a mix of white cheese, pepper, potatoes and onion) … These are cooked and if you have enough, that you keeping for the next day, it’s even better to fry it a bit on the frying pan. These dumplings on the display are from the catering industry – homemade are usually smaller than these. This is very popular catering dish in Poland, and also schaboszczak ( pork steak, breading with a breadcrumbs and fried – similar to German schnitzel ). I have to buy schaboszczak for the next time. There is quite good catering store a stone throw from my house! I have also Italian sweet cream with pistachios and gorgeous honey with French edible chestnuts. And I am drinking my ginger drink in a jar!!! I must be a freak. ( Or maybe I drink it in a glass more often, but I wanted this picture to be artisan/hipster/ boho a little bit…

Blogging with my dog

You see, that is not easy to blogging, while my dog craves to lick my face, or she wants me to scratch her tummy. Thus, I let her win this time! No boars toady, but I went shopping to the supermarket, have spent few hours there and I’m so tired.

The rain has set in and the weather is very autumnal. I thought I will read the book on Mariacki Altar in Cracow, because I am making the post, but I guess that she wants to play with me.

Tame boar at Polish farm

I want you to know, that it’s not a blog on wild boars, but simply I cannot resist, cannot help myself… Another boar’s post! Isn’t he cute?

And I have a spooky, bloodcurdling story, again! I had invited my Mom for a supper, yesterday. She was walking near my house and it was not too late, between 20:00 and 20:30. The streets were empty because of chilly, unpleasant rain… She noticed ” alone dog”, you know ( who was not a dog, in fact). She started to watch, and stopped, and was looking around , thinking : ” The owner must be here…” And in this moment she realised, that this is a boar! So early!

He, or she, ( but rather he, if alone) was running a while and then did hide himself into the decorative plants and bush, and disappeared into the darkness…
