It is really important for you to have one place in your home for relaxing and entertainment. A balcony garden may be the nice place you wanted. Think how cozy it is to relax at your balcony garden.
If you have a balcony or a deck off your main living area you could try somethings out and recreate a little French balcony in your neck of the woods. Here is some inspiration for you…

REMEMBERING AN AWESOME TRAVELING TIME!
I love to travel a lot and I am a well versed traveler but this is my first time in South Korea for business and fun. And since the Winter Olympics are happening in this country our family decided for us to stay three days at the Conrad Hotel in Seoul and then go to Pyongyang for the finals. So, so long Seoul, hello Pyeongchang!
It was very hard to track down accommodations close to these mountain events but we did it with anticipation though, we learned our lesson in Sochi 2014 where we stayed on a cruise ship near the coastal cluster and had to commute every day to watch my events. The way the security was set up most of the mountain based accommodations would have been difficult to get to without a car. We planned better this time.

CANADIAN POUTINE FRIES
FRENCH FRIES A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
They were invented in Belgium, in its French country area, back in the beginning of the 18th century.
Since then, selling french fries in Belgium has been considered very profitable and it is the most popular street food. I compare this tradition to the Mexican one: eating tacos in the street.
The word ‘french’ stands for the special way of cutting the potatoes.
BELGIAN FRIES WITH SPICY GARLIC AND ROSEMARY
BELGIANS WAY TO COOK THEM:
French fries should be thick ( for taste and health) and fried twice: first time at 175 C for about 7 minutes.
Then the fries should be cooled (best way is 15 minutes in the freezer under a towel.
A second frying is at 190 C for 1 to 3 minutes. The temperature shock makes them really crispy. Make sure not using canola oil. olive oil, or any vegetable oil.
NOTE; Coconut oil is the only oil not changing its chemical structure under the mentioned temperature.
LOADED POTATO WEDGES
Origin: it has been attributed to both countries: France and Belgium, but way earlier than the first version. This one goes back as far as to the 1600’s.
Potatoes became popular in Northern Europe, because they did not require all the milling, grinding, relatively long cooking and other preparation that grain required.
Some people say that the French style of cutting potatoes is to cut in half long ways and then long ways again, to prepare for dicing into cubes for soups and stocks.
Sometimes they leave vegetables long ways, which is known as “julienne”. Long and finely cut, this would reduce the cooking time and make them easier to eat.
