These past few days have been amazing. I’ve spent a couple of days in Copenhagen with two of my sisters (I come from a family of six girls). We spent two days and two nights there (from Wednesday till Friday). On Wednesday we flew to Copenhagen and went to our hostel. After we checked in we went out to find a place to eat. After which we walked around town and then went back to the hostel. The buildings in this city are really beautiful and old!
For Thursday we had planned to do a lot. We woke up early, dressed ourselves and went out to have breakfast at Grod. We had planned to go to the Round Tower then go to the Rosenborg Slot, to the Statens Museum of Kunst, then to lunch, then walking all the way to Kastellet and the Little Mermaid. Back to the city center, walking around and lastly to Tivoli.
So after breakfast we made our way to the Round Tower. While walking towards the Rosenborg Slot we shared a box full of raspberries. We went to have a look inside, walked around, really beautiful!
For lunch we walked to a lovely restaurant, called Europa 1989. As planned we headed to the Little Mermaid, actually really small. We didn't spent a lot of time out here, but it was worth the walk! We did not walk back to the city center, but we were lucky to have a free ride in the hop-on-hop-off bus.
We walked around in the city until before dinnertime and headed to Tivoli. We went in some rides, had dinner, went in even more rides and went ‘home’ just before closing time.
This was a really long, but exciting day!
The next morning we checked out, placed our bags in a locker, rented some bikes and headed to breakfast at the Union Kitchen. Then cycled to Christiania, the Freetown, there were nice and weird people. We cycled further to the Christiansborg Slot. The interior was really beautiful, all the decorations. It was only a shame that the horses were on ‘holiday’ so we could not see them. Our last stop was Torvehallerne to have a take-away lunch.
After we enjoyed our lunch we headed back to the hostel and returned our bikes. Then we took our belongings from the locker and walked to the subway station from were we went to the airport (lufthavne). We checked in, waited, waited, went into the plan and flew back home.
Our trip together was amazing and fun! I really enjoyed spending my time in Copenhagen.
At home it was so hot, so lovely! Yesterday (Sunday) me and my mum gathered some fruit and veggies from the garden. And sun. And looking at the butterflies (and bees) in the garden, flying from one flower to another. And eating fruit. And going to church. And sleeping. And reading.
This is a recipe for a really summery pie. It is a treat, although it's healthier, not an everyday food. They are gluten and sugar-free. The recipe calls for 4 individual tarts.
4 tbsp melted butter
3 tbsp honey
1 egg whites
2 cups almond flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon / salt / baking soda
Stir the butter and honey in a bowl. Add the egg whites and stir together. Add the rest of the ingredients and form a dough. Cut the dough into 4 and shape into rounds, flatten, cover and refrigerate.
For the filling you will need 4-5 nectarines, cinnamon and coconut flour. Slice the nectarines thinly. Toss with a 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp coconut flour. Then preheat the oven to 160 C (or 325 F)
Roll out the dough to 6-7 inch rounds. Rub them in with a bit of coconut flour. Arrange the nectarines beautifully 1 inch from the border. Fold the edges over. Then top the edges with egg yolk and honey mixture.
Bake for 25-30 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool, serve and enjoy!
