Jeg har længe gerne ville have et plankebord som spisebord. Da min lejlighed ikke er så stor, har de fleste færdiglavede borde været alt for store til rummet, og derfor tænkte jeg, at det kunne være en idé at få lavet et bord efter mål, der passede til en mindre lejlighed. Det har jeg så fået gjort, og jeg er super glad for resultatet!

Jeg har behandlet mit bord med drivtømmerolie, inspireret af bloggeren Christina Dueholm, og her så mit færdige resultat. Nu mangler der bare stole! :)

Den anden dag bagte jeg denne lækre banankage med hindbær og chokolade. Den blev simpelthen så god!
Hindbærerne tilsætter en let syrlighed til den ellers søde banansmag og chokoladen. Den er super hurtig og nem at bage, så her er opskriften :)

Ingredienser:
- 2 modne bananer
- 100 gram smør
- 100 gram hindbær
- 2 dl rørsukker
- 3 æg
- 1/2 tsk salt
- 2 dl mel
- 1 tsk bagepulver
- 100 gram mørk chokolade
- 50 gram hvid chokolade

Fremgangsmåde:

Tænd ovnen på 175 grader.

Mos bananerne i en skål, og tag hindbær ud af fryseren for at tø op. Smelt smørret og lad det afkøle.

En vaniljestang flækkes og kornene skrabes ud og blandes med sukkeret. Sukker og æg skal piskes til en luftig masse. Resten af ingredienserne tilføjes i sukker- og æggeblandingen. Hak chokoladen og vend det i dejen. Hæld dejen i en form og fordel hindbærerne i.

Kagen bages mellem 25-35 minutter. Tjek kagen ved at stikke en gaffel i dejen og se, om den hænger ved. Når kagen er færdig hakkes hvid og mørk chokolade og stryges på toppen, så det smelter henover kagen. Pynt til sidst med hindbær :)

Pictures from yesterday's Christmas shopping in San Diego. It's an eerie feeling to experience Christmas in a place filled with palm trees and with the hot weather :)

Lidt billeder af julepynten i San Diego. Underlig følelse, at der er varmt og palmer, når man er vant til frost og kulde i december :)

Seeing as my adventure here in California is soon coming to an end, I got this very beautiful piece of jewelry to bring with me back home. I love it so much! It is a 14K yellow gold flip flop with diamonds. It will forever remind me of this study abroad adventure, where I have mostly worn sandals and flip flops due to the nearly perfect weather in Southern California. :)

Mit studieophold i Californien er snart ved at være slut, og i den anledning har jeg gået og overvejet, hvilke ting, jeg skulle have med mig hjem. En af tingene er blevet til denne flotte halskæde, der skal ligne en flip flop. Den er lavet i 14K guld og har diamanter på toppen - jeg simpelthen så glad for den. Den vil minde mig om en helt unik oplevelse, og eftersom jeg næsten ikke har gået i andet end flip flops herovre, er den et fint minde om min tur. :)

One thing I must say about San Francisco is that it has some very pretty houses. They are colorfully decorated and many of them are placed on hills which gives a particular visual illusion. If you visit San Francisco, make sure to walk around and enjoy all the beautiful houses. :)

Some months ago we headed to San Francisco for about a week. Here I show you some pictures from our first day in the city. San Francisco is very expensive, at least during the summer months, so we did a lot of walking to save some money. The area around Pier 39 and Golden Gate Bridge was very crowded, but it's definitely worth the sight nonetheless.
If you want to avoid all the tourists, you should visit the city during late Fall or Winter. It was almost impossible to walk on the Golden Gate and it was even more impossible to enjoy the view over the ocean due to the many people and cameras when we were visiting in August. :)

Today we took the bus to Pacific Beach to watch the sunset. It seemed that today was a really good pick, and we shot some beautiful photos of the enchanting sunset.
Watching the Sun go down over the Pacific Ocean is so beautiful and something I would recommend anyone to do if they get the chance. The waves in the Pacific Ocean are huge and wild, and they go well along with the stunning scenery where the Sun quietly disappears from the sky. :)

Back home I used to make this for breakfast for a while, but seeing as I'm currently living in California, I have no blender or mixer, meaning that I can't make this super delicious breakfast here. When I return home in a few weeks, I will make this right away. :) The recipe is as follows:

- Berries of choice (my favorite is raspberry)
- Soy milk
- Squeeze of lime
- Fresh fruit (I prefer kiwi, fresh raspberries, blueberries and plum)
- Other toppings (coconut flakes, 100% raw cocoa and home made granola)

You just mix the berries, soy milk and lime juice, put them in a bowl and add your fruits and toppings. Easy and delicious. :)

We have only 5 weekends left here in California, and I thought it was time to find some treasures to bring with me back home to Denmark.

Seeing as San Diego is placed very close to the Mexican border, the town is heavily influenced by its culture. I love wandering thru the small streets filled with colors and music. Every corner seems to be decorated with colorful, Mexican pottery in Old Town.

Seeing as I am not that thrilled with collecting the typical souvenirs, I deciced to look for something that will always remind me of my study abroad period in San Diego whilst at the same time being something I can use in some way rather than something that would end in a box in a corner at home.
When I saw the Mexican pottery, it didn't take me long to convince myself that I wanted some.

I deciced to buy some dishes and small bowls, since I think the colorful patterns could be a nice contrast to the typical Scandinavian, minimalistic style :) I am already looking forward to all the dinners that will be served using this beautiful pottery. :)
