Loosing Weight

I´m on the diet again, I gained too much while we were in Finland.
I always do when I like to taste everything that I can´t have on Tenerife.
This was my meal last night before I went to work.

The white sauce that looks like whipping cream is fresh cheese with 0% fat.
I eat it almost every day when it fits to the most of plates and you add flavour to it by mixing in a little bit of  herbs, garlic, curry or other spices, etc. Easy to make and tastes good!

Smoked Herrings

On my night off (Wednesday) we made smoked herring.

 First they must be soaked in a salty marinade for about an hour.

 In the oven. We can make 34 herrings on the same time.

 Big fire in under,

Almost ready! Mums!

I continue buying a lot of clothes and jeweleries
when combining outfits is like a hobby for me. I love it!
Brito took this photo of me one night before I went to work.
He thought I was dressed like an angel. What do you think?

Smoked Salmon

 My new smoke oven.
He,he, Britos feet showed up in the oven! HE,HE!!!
It´s so shiny that it turned out be a mirror and I didn´t see it while I took the photo.
Looks stupid! He,he!

 Oh, Tonight I will probably smell like a smoked sardine at Lewinskis.
The problem is that I had washed my hair before and now it´s impregnated with the smoke smell and I´m not gonna wash it again.

I bought a smoke oven while we were in Finland and brought it to Tenerife + a few bags of the special coarsely sawdust that you put in it too.
It was Daniels idea that I must buy a smoke oven after one of the fishermen here in Los Cristianos had asked him to bring smoked salmon on his return to the island.
So sad Daniel moved to heaven and could not be here today when we took it in use for the first time.

Anyhow, we made salmon and it turned out to be so delicious! Just perfect!!!
Next project will be smoked sardines. We can smoke 30-40 at one time in two different layers inside the oven and we will do that and then give some sardines to Britos family so that they can try it out. If it´s nice weather we will make them the coming weekend.
Oh, such a good idea to bring this oven to the island. Now we can surprise and bless our Canarian friends who normally don´t have this kind of fish. I hope they will like the taste.

First you must put the sawdust in the bottom of the oven.

Then you put the steel plate over the sawdust and then the grid.
We only used one grid today when we only made two fillets of salmon, but
the oven has got two grids.

The heat is coming from two oil rechauds in under the oven.
Can you see the smoke coming out from it?
It´s a very strong smell. I just wonder what the neighbours were thinking?
But we enjoyed it anyhow. Imagine it worked like it should!!!

Like you can see it got the right beautiful color, but I wish you even
 could feel the smell and of course have a taste too.


Last night when it was my night off we had a fondue on the balcony.

Garachico, Sept 14, 2013

We spent last weekend up in the north of the island at a hotel in Garachico.
We went up there on Saturday morning and came back on Sunday when I was singing Sunday night.
Like many times before I just forgot to take photos for the blogg and I have only got a few to show you.

Garachico is a small harbour town in the north of Tenerife.
December 1645; Heavy rains in the high mountains caused a huge landslide and 
about 100 people were killed and about 40 ships were destroyed.

5 May 1706 ; Volcan Negro exploded and the town was covered in lava.

Our hotel was near the ocean and I took this photo from the terrace.

Brito down on the street waiting for me to get down.

Brito and me.

We had been 4 years together in the beginning of September, so we tried to make the trip like an anniversary celebration and a disconnecting of the bad experiences that we are going through after we lost Daniel. 
And we had a good relaxing time even when it´s not possible to disconnect from what has happened. It will take time before we can start thinking like normal again. He is in our thoughts every minute and we always end up sitting talking about him. It is as difficult for Brito as it is for me when they had a very good relation and were the best friends.

The loose of Daniel was so shocking and tragic that we still have difficult to accept it´s true and it´s like we live in this world and try to take care of the things that must be done, but there is somehow a feeling that we are separated from the reality. It´s difficult to explain but it feels like you are somewhere, don´t know where, let´s say in the nowhere, and you haven´t landed yet so that you can enjoy the life and see what is around you or make any plans for the future. It feels like you live in parentheses.

I sing in the nights and I think it helps. The nights are like a "break" for my brain when I then have to concentrate on the songs and the line dancing etc. But, to be honest, I many times find myself lost on the stage because I loose the concentration and then the lyrics, and sometimes I don´t remember if I´m in the beginning of the song or in the end. Oh, please have patience with me. It seams like my brain is still getting black outs after the shock, but I have heard it will become better, but that it will take time.
But I watched the guests tonight and the most of them looked like they did not notice that I sometimes lost it a little bit.

Oh this is getting very long now and it´s in the middle of the night..I better stop! Sweet dreams!
