Weekend in brief

Scott laid our radiant heat this week and only needs one more day to finish up.



Bathroom. Kevin, our tile guy, is going to start laying the floor this week. It's starting to shape up. Here's the tile we settled on!

We got closer to a decision on our yellow wall this weekend. We looked at swatches at different times of the day and narrowed it down to this one. It's still up for discussion a little bit. This room gets very bright in the morning and the rest of it is white so the yellow has to be soft and non abrasive and I think DALILA fits the criteria but we want to get our decorator friends involved in this one.

It was a short weekend and I wanted to make food but didn't quite have the energy for a long-cook or anything super involved so we decided on cheese FUN-due which we ate while playing cards.

Boil 1 cup of wine

Melt 1 tbsp butter
Mix in 1 tbsp of flour and cook and stir for a few minutes.

Combine the two.

Start adding cheese in cubes. I used 7 oz of Gryuere, 7 oz of Emmenthaler, 7 oz of sharp cheddar.

When it's smooth add 1 teaspoon of dry mustard and 1 tbsp of lemon juice.

We dipped toasty bread, ham cubes and sauteed mushrooms. 

It's hard to go wrong with cheese. Lots of cheese.

For sunday brunch I used the left over fondue and made Croque Madames, with english muffins, ham, cheesy goo and a fried egg on top. 

In other TERRIFIC news. Looks like I'll be heading home to Sweden for the month of April to shoot a short film that Lovisa is directing. It was just announced at the Gothenburg film festival that ORANGERIET is one of the chosen projects to receive funding this year. Sara Bergmark Elfgren wrote the spooky screenplay. It's super exciting and I'm watching movies like crazy to get inspired for the look. It's a very visual script and an awesome privilege and challenge for me. The film will premiere at the festival next January, so that's another trip to look forward to. 2011 - you rock so far!!!

Whose that behind the camera? John Shim is the keygrip on the feature I am currently working on and I get to play operator a little bit.

Gotta go to work!
