I have decided to learn to make bread, including gluten-free, because the lists of ingredients on the one you can find in shops are scary.
V 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 were such failures I couldn’t immortalise.
This one at least looks quite nice, but it’s just out of the oven, we haven’t tasted it yet.
Second act of my contribution to tonight’s Christmas dinner… I love eating with friends when everyone cooks parts of the meal.
This one is a recipe from Kitchen Stories, one of two cooking apps I keep coming back to. I love the videos (and seriously who doesn’t want to listen to some soulless ukulele jingle while cooking? 😉 )
I found a great hummus recipe and I tried it today. I am very happy with the result, it’s clearly the best hummus I ever made. It’s been years since the last time though, it has become too easy to find mediocre hummus in supermarkets and laziness takes over quickly…
Third in our new “recipes” series: the Visa to India
- Original Passport (must have at least 2 blank visa pages).
- One original signed visa application.
- One copy of Austrian ´Meldezettel’.
- 1 recently taken passport photo (51mm x 51mm against a light background, maximum head size 3.5cm).
- 2 Letters of Invitation.
- Conference Organiser Clearance letter.
- Conference Organiser Clarification letter.
- Endorsement Letter from US employer on company letterhead.
- Copy of 3 months of bank statements.
- Copy of CV or resume.
- Flight and Hotel confirmations.
- Visa fee of 101.20 Euros in cash – no credit cards. Please bring extra cash.
Print all the above on 36 pages in A4 format, mourn the loss of a tree, then get psychologically ready to spend some time in a waiting room, at least twice.
Interesting that obtaining a visa to attend a conference is way more complex than a tourist visa.

- A pair of pants
- A shirt or t-shirt
- A pair of shoes
- Optionally, a plane ticket to Vienna
- A bit of money, but not that much
- A map of Vienna
Stop working for a bit, put some pants on, and get out of your house. Once in the street, depending on where you are, you may have to go to the airport and fly to Vienna, or if like me you already are in Vienna, walk five minutes to Gasthaus Rebhuhn.
Once there, take a seat, order a drink, then a Schnitzel, either the Veal or the Pork one. I personally prefer the pork one that is tastier, cheaper, and comes with those amazing parsley potatoes. The veal one comes with a potato salad that contains way too much sauce.
Wait a little bit for your Schnitzel to be cooked, then eat it when it is served. Trust me, that’s the best way, cooking it at home is quite messy. 🙂
PS: In case you wonder why I didn’t take the photo myself: I wanted to go there today at lunch, but someone preferred a pizza…
