Of Geese And Pears


1/2 kg pears
1/2 kg potatoes
800 g of goose legs and breasts
black pepper
1 lemon

How to make it?
Cut the goose's skin with  a sharp knife (not too deep). Rub the goose all over with the cut half of a lemon. Use both sides to get it good and coated. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over the goose legs and breasts. Put the goose into the fridge for a night. 
The next morning wash the goose  under cold water. After drying it, sprinkle some salt on it. Take a large pan and put the goose legs and breasts in it. First, the side with the skin down for 8 minutes, then the other side for another 8 minutes.
In the meantime, wash the potatoes and the pears. Cut them in four pieces, remove the house of the pears but don't peel them. Put the potatoes and the pears in a duck oven. After roasting the legs and breasts for 8-8 minutes, put them into the duck oven, over the potatoes and pears. Pour the fried fat from the pan into the duck oven and squeeze the other half of the lemon on the legs and breasts.
Put the duck oven into the heated oven (180 grades) for about 1 hour 45 minutes.  Besprinkle the legs and breasts with the fat every 20 minutes. Add some water if essential.

Do you prefer darker colours for winter or do you like wearing clothes as colorful as in spring/summer?
Well, as for me, I tend to wear darker colours in winter but I often realize I wear too much black. The shades of brown seem to be a good alternative to black in winter. 
How about you?
Do you like brown or do you prefer black?

Tested - Dove Derma Spa

Happy Monday Everyone,

I hope you had a nice weekend. Mine was quite busy with some  plumbing works done in the house and this week won't be more relaxing, either. But by the end of the week the baby's room will get painted. I am so excited. :)

For today I brought you a review of two products tested lately:

Dove Nourishing Care In Shower Argan Oil and Derma Spa Goodness Body Lotion

Shower Oil

My skin is not dry (Thanks God), still, I love using body oils and shower oils, especially in the winter. Since I am pregnant it has become even more important for me, as I try to do my best to prevent stretch marks.  The odour is really pleasant, not to intensive I love the extra moisture this product gives my skin. This shower oil contains Moroccan Argan Oil which I think is really-really efficient.

Body Lotion

This product is one of the products in the "Derma Spa Goodness" family. The fragrance is very mild but lasts quite long.  It has a note of vanilla with citrus, ginger and apple. 
After using it, my skin feels smooth and soft. This body lotion is also targeted for dry skin. As I do not have dry skin, I was a bit worried if it was absorbed quickly but I had no problems with it  and love the way my skin feels afterwards (no greasy feeling!). 

You may have realized by now that I usually love Dove products and it is not any different with these two products, either. They are totally worth the price.
Fortunately, they  did not cause any kind of irritation or redness. They are suitable for sensitive/dry skin but also very nice for normal skin in the winter when your skin needs extra care. 

How about you? Have you tried any of these poducts? What were your impressions?

Thanks for stopping by.
