Ham-creamcheese bites with rucola and pine nuts. Simple and very tasty. I used a thin sliced Couburger-ham which is a salty ham, a little ground pepper on the natural creamcheese and I made sandwiches to take on a boat trip in stead off rolls.
Twig tree sculpture alternative for xmas. Collect driftwood in summer or trimmings in fall, build a tree for Christmas, and use the bits as kindling to keep warm in January. I'd be tempted to leave this tree up all year round.
