Kitties, kitties, kitties !

After days and weeks of searching for a maine coon cat or a kitten, we stumbled upon an advertisement on the German Ebay, where you could buy severall kinds of items (including pets)  -istead of the normal Ebay, where the highest bidder wins the object -. There were six kittens offered. One was black smoke, one was tabby, and the other four were red-haired. Initially we only wanted the tabby one, and we visited the family a few times. When it was time to take the tabby one home, we heard that the black smoke was still available, because the buyers did not respond. So we decided to take him, too. Now we have two brother kittens and they are so cute ! At first we (and the formal owner) thought that the tabby one was a girl. But it turns out he wasn't :). I'll stop to call them 'the black smoke one' and 'the tabby one', as they have names...

This is Pim (Pim sounds innocent and so he is. He always follows his big brother).

 And this is Banjer. He's very naughty and bites sometimes (he actually thinks we like it ;) ).

As you may have noticed by the quality of the photos, we have bought a new (well, second-hand) camera. It's A HP Photosmart 945, with 5.3 MP. It's really professional to us and takes great pictures. Do you have this camera, too ? What are your experiences with it ?

Do you know what this is called ?

Today me and my mother were visiting a friend of hers. She is sewing a dress for me (she sews very, very much ). Then she found this vintage hair clip/bow clip thing in a dresser and we know how to use it, but we really don't know what it is called.

Do you (or does your mother/grandmother/aunt) know what this is called, please let me know !

love, Jip.

Delicious cherry dessert !

We made this dessert in home economics class on Tuesday and I liked it so much and it was so easy that I decided to share it with you. The measurements in the recipe will be in grams and milliliters, as I am completely unfamiliar with cups and ounces. This is what you'll need to make this delicious cherry dessert :

For 4 persons :

- 250 milliliters of cream (like whipped cream, but ''unwhipped'') ;
- 500 grams of  cream cheese (the one used in cheesecake) ;
- 375 grams of cherries (without the cherry-juice it should be 375 grams) ;
- 10 grams of vanilla sugar for the whipped cream, if it is unsweetened. ;
- 3 or 4 tablespoons of regular sugar for the cream cheese ;
- Some grated dark chocolate (as much as you want ).

Step 1 :

Add the vanilla sugar to the 'unwhipped' cream and whip it.. Mix this with the cream cheese and 3-4 tablespoons of regular sugar. 

Step 2 : 

Take a bowl (or something else you want to put it in) and start to layer the cream mix, then cherries and chocolate. You can do as much layers as you want. Just be creative ! It looks pretty if the top layer contains chocolate and cherries.

I said it was easy ;). If you liked this recipe and tried it out, please let me know or send some pictures. 

Love, Jip.
