Nick is working on finishing his handmade doors, Sadie is his sidekick, and Esther is (not very) patiently awaiting spring. This life is slow and intense and sometimes frustrating...but it is beautiful. A NOTE TO OUR FRIENDS: Our middle child, Stella, had a bad fall on this day. That's one of the reasons that we didn't upload all weekend. The other three reasons were snow, snow, and snow. Stella fell on the concrete at school and the school staff was very concerned for her. As it turns out she is fine, but she still had a bad day and didn't want to be on video. We went ahead and made a vlog anyway, with the rest of us, and she'll be back in tomorrow's update, just as spunky as ever. And you know I'll get caught up again with uploads someday. :) Thanks for hanging out with us! We appreciate you! -- The potato casserole is another no recipe recipe. Nick is the one making it in this video, but we both make versions of it. If I were making it the gravy might have been a little thicker and I probably would have added corn. I can corn and am always looking for ways to sneak it in. :) Prepare your potatoes and your chicken ahead. We do this to use leftovers, and you can do pretty much the same recipe with pasta or rice instead of potatoes. It is a poor man's food. If you've got a few cups of cooked chicken and nothing else, that's the time. Cut the chicken into cubes and precook your starch (your potatoes, rice, or pasta) and any vegetables you want to add that aren't already soft from being canned or frozen. Then heat up a skillet for the gravy. The gravy starts with equal parts butter and flour in a cast iron pan. I do about 3 Tbsp each. Cook this (the roux) until it is just barely turning brown, stirring constantly. Add 2 cups chicken broth and 2 cups milk, which you hopefully remembered to mix together ahead of time and bring to room temperature. :) Add the liquid steadily, stirring constantly, and keep the gravy over medium heat until it thickens. When it is thick, you can add the rest of the ingredients, including some crushed dry herbs and salt and pepper, stir gently, and throw it in the oven for 20-30 minutes.

NEW EXTENDED VERSION WITH SPEAKER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZK8REu-8pGw&t=28s INFOS: https://www.stefanforster.com/ Greenland - Since 8 years I'm traveling to this magical country. Today quiet and untouched places are becoming more and more rare. On my first visit to Greenland, I was fascinated by the incredible power of nature that can be felt everywhere. But during the last years things have changed. The amount of icebergs is increasing savagely. Glaciers I'm visiting every year are retreating not meters but kilometers a year and the unending amount of ice seems to be endless. There is nothing more beautiful than an iceberg - everyone is unique and the light reflecting from its surface is magical. It's sad how close beauty and decay can be seen in an iceberg. This movie is is an appreciation to the ice - for me the most amazing aggregate state of water. Behind the scenes For this short film I travelled to Greenland with my drones several times. Always with the target of a certain region in a certain light situation. The shots from the calving glacier took me 4 days at the Eqi Glacier and over 70 battery charges for only 4 usable shots of a few seconds. It's a very hard intention to film the very right moment on a glacier front of about 6km wide - especially close up. But the hardest thing of flying in Greenland is the fact, that every 2-3 minutes the difference between the magnetic north and the geographic north (which are not the same place - especially so far north) causing a fatal p-gps flight error and the drone is flying away (also the camera's horizon). But at the end every single flight was worth it - filming Icebergs from above is one of the most beautiful things I've ever done. Additionally I used the drone to scout the landing spot and look for polar bears. The best thing for bears and humans is to not meet each other on shore.
