Family holidays

I LOVE holidays with family!
Every summer we pack a full car and leave home for a week. To the sea or lake. This summer it was sea. We always choose less crowded places, like this one -  Olando kepure.

The weather was not pleasant at all, rainy, windy... Not surprising actually, that is called the real Lithuanian summer. Nevertheless in the evenings somehow magically the sun used to appear and we were enjoying beautifull sunsets.

Apart from cozy mornings I love such holidays because this is the only time in the year when we all play domino. Like in the childhood, when ALIAS, UNO and Poker did not existed (or we just did not know about those non-Soviet Union games).

I should dig in the boxes at home to find chess and draughts. These were my favourite games when I was 5 years old! Since I will be living with my parents for a month (hopefully AIESEC will finally give me a reply and I will pack for a long trip), we could play those games again. Like in the childhood.

A recipe of chocolate pie that became my favourite [of course after my moms appie pie :)].

200g dark chocolate;
250g butter;
3 eggs;
200g sugar;
150g flour;
2 spoons dark cacao;
1 pinch of salt;
1/4 tea spoon baking-powder;
100g caramel

Dissolve butter and chocolate. Lightly mix eggs and sugar in another bowl. In the third bowl mix flour with salt, cacao and baking-powder. Pour chocolate and butter into eggs. Then add flour. Grease baking tray, line baking paper, pour the mix. Then imagine how big the slices of cake will be and put a tea spoon of caramel into each square.
Bake 25 min in 170C.

Have you seen the movie Chocolat?
I could watch it again and again...

When the storm is outside..

Do one thing every day that scares you. Eleanor Roosevelt US diplomat & reformer (1884 - 1962) 

Feel butterflies in the stomach. Not to be scared. Live the dream.
