Sunday painting 🌹

Elaine's life and Acrylic paintings 😊

Did I ever tell you I paint to John Denver music, hence the sweeping strokes 😳 I also think about people on the site whilst I’m painting. I seem to have become very critical of my paintings now, even John seems more critical.  I wonder why we are so hard on ourselves it is not as if we have to prove anything to anyone else. 🙄

I’m looking for perfection which my brain tells me is silly 😬 My head wants more and more but my heart tells me to paint for pleasure otherwise painting will become a chore.

Anyway this is today’s finished result.

PS I refuse to keep looking at it thinking I could make it better! 😉 Argh 😤

Cheese sandwich

Cooking without Limits


I love cheese and I love sandwiches so one day I made an easy cheese sandwich for myself. With a few ingredients that I had in the kitchen, I adapted a recipe and in the end I got this amazing snack.


  • 1 egg
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 50 ml milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • My homemade Red chili jam
  • Cedar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil


Whisk the egg in a bowl with salt, pepper and milk. In a pan add the olive oil. When the oil is hot add the 2 slices of bread after you put them through the egg mix both sides.

Cook for 2-3 minutes. Change the sides and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Before taking them out put the cheese on a slice and add the second one on top.

Take it out put it on a plate. Serve it hot with Red chili jam
