Raspberries & plums

The weekend was a quiet one for us. After the Robbie Williams concert I was kind of tired and on Saturday evening Tom and I took in a double helping of Pirates of the Caribbean (1 and 2). So we just stayed at home relaxing with Soeri and playing board games etc.

We made some great raspberry yogurt ice-cream yesterday and the last of the yoghurt and raspberries I packed into the lunchbox today. He also got a few yummy and ever so sweet yellow plums, that we used to make a lovely preserve with on Saturday. A friend of mine brought back delicious goose liver pate from France and Soeren has developed a true liking to the stuff. He can't get enough of the stuff. So that is what he wanted on his bread. The bread is a plain rye bread and I spread it with a bit of butter prior to adding the pate. A herby chunk of Babybel and a few carrot sticks with a hard boiled egg completes the box today.

Adult Variation: Foie Gras is a real delicacy and we enjoy it warm on slices of toast. So that is what I recommend for today. By the way we make sure that our foie gras comes from "happy" farms and not from those farmers who force feed their geese. It is more expensive to buy but we prefer to give out the extra Euro, knowing that it comes from a proper method.
The rest of the box is great the way it is so I will just wish you happy lunching!!

Jes, Hope you are feeling better. You poor thing! Soeren and me send you a huge hug! We did not make yoghurt but yoghurt ice-cream. It#s easy when you have an ice-cream maker. Out the yoghurt in and add fresh fruit the maker does the rest. I will be posting a recipe for an ice-cream we made earlier on my food blog.Hope you check it out!
