It’s already November but still no sign of winter. So the last days were still ‘warm’ and sunny. Great to have a last walk along the coast and enjoy the sunny weather.
I had a long walk along the Brodtner Ufer, the hiking walk from Travemünde to Niendorf along the Baltic Sea near Lübeck. I loved the mushrooms still everywhere to find – also if not eatable. But they remind me that my mother when I was a child always has gone to look for button mushrooms in the fields. And sometimes we had funny encounters with cows…
I only took the walks where most sun was coming through the foliage and the leaves under my feet were doing that wonderful noise while walking on them. Yes, I splashed them as well 😀
Do you like the pastel colors of the trees in fall? Or do you prefer the more vivid colors of a real Indian Summer?
Chestnuts are something very autumnally. I think the day I smell the chestnuts roasting in the streets that is for me the day summer definitely has gone, fall has arrived and winter is not far anymore. And I love them! They are part of the winter, they warm up and they are so tasty!
When I came home from the walk I wanted to eat something rustic. What better than a bread? So I tried out a new recipe with buckwheat. It’s a long time I thought to try some with this pseudo wheat and was so happy to find a recipe in a magazine I sometimes read. They make it sound so easy and I had all the ingredients at home.
In a few minutes I put the dough into the oven and just had to wait the bread to be ready.
One hour and a half later I was indulging in the best bread I ever made. Homemade jam on it and some vegan cheese and my day was made!
