Me and Max

What a beautiful day!

Today was great, actually we woke up pretty early given the fact that we’d both been having a night out, Charlotte at Annette’s Bachelorette party and I playing Fifa and watching the Championship League final with Claes and Koray.  Both events had been fairly good although, Charlotte’s ended fairly badly as one of the group …

Budapest

Trip to Budapest

Last Easter I found, to my surprise a trip to Budapest rather than the usual chocolate that comes in my Easter egg.  I don’t know if that was a subtle hint from my wife that I needed to work on my waistline, but it was a welcome surprise as the city has been on our …

diablo3

Its time …

After waiting for 10 years after Blizzard releasing a sequel to its Diablo series, Diablo III is finally out.  After a nightmare start in terms of server connectivity etc. I finally started yesterday with Charlotte almost falling asleep in front of the computer  Anyhow, always up for a game, my gamer tag on Battle.net is Bestur#1504

Barbecued Pineapple

Pay close attention as this dessert is to die for.  I prepared this one on the grill, using a rotisserie accessory from Weber.  You can also cut the pineapple into pieces and barbecue, glaze it and turn regularly. This dish is best served with whipped cream and plain vanilla ice cream, and it simply melts …

Having dinner outside

Charlotte’s parents visiting Switzerland for the first time

Last Wednesday Charlotte’s parents, Krister and Elisabeth came to visit us, they seemed to have timed their trip well as the Thursday and Friday were the best two days that we’ve had all summer. During these we managed to enjoy great dinners outside in the evenings but during the weekend it became a bit cooler …

Charlotte blushing!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Oh boy!  Why do you think my darling wife is blushing so much on the picture above?  Tired? Stressed? Too much wine?  No, nothing of the above, she has started to read the trilogy of the Grey books which are storming the charts across the world.  These erotic/romance love stories really seem to have an …

Birthday party in Iceland

We had planned to spend last weekend in Iceland, that was at least the plan until I got an text message on Friday morning saying “Forgot my pass!!!”.  I don’t know about all of you but at that moment I realized that I would probably have to go to Iceland myself without my angel, so …

Salmon Teriyaki grilled on wooden plank

Grilled Salmon Teriyaki on a wooden plank

My not-so-fish loving brother asked me to put this recipe on the site after I cooked this for dinner last night.  Unfortunately I didn’t have any wooden plank, but I grilled directly at 150 degrees for around 20 minutes.  Best is to marinate the salmon for 4 hours+ (preferably overnight) and then grill in-directly on …

Leisure Suit Larry

Are you a backer?

As many developers don’t have the luxury of being well funded its safe to say that the site Kickstarter has been received with fanfare. Now gamers can support developers directly who want to focus on niche, independent or risky new gaming genres. So far I have supported Al Lowe who is bringing an old favorite, …
