gingersnaps and vermouth

welcome my lazy Sunday afternoon... everyone is napping, I'm  camped out in the library listening to the Blind Boys of Alabama and  enjoying my new favourite "tea time" snack.   Vermouth on the rocks with a gingersnap cookie.  Before you jump to conclusions, this isn't just any vermouth - this is Carpano Antica Vermouth  enjoyed best on the rocks.  It's slightly sweet with a breath of bitterness ( which is what I love most about it).  I made these gingersnap cookies a few day ago, and they just get better with time. The almost spicy, but sweet cookie balances the almost bitter, and slightly dry vermouth.   Take a deep breath,  let it out slowly..... and appreciate the quiet moments.

(You can use my favourite app in the world +Delectable to have the Vermouth shipped to your door.)

Falsled Kro

there are times during travel that one has to allow space for experience. some places give us too much to be described using only words and pictures. Falsled Kro is such a place...and so I'm going to put away my camera (phone).
