Current Favorites

Hi! I’m just popping in to say hello and share some pictures with you.

Here are a few of my favorite eats at the moment:

1. Apples with peanut butter/almond paste – I saw a picture here and had to try them! Really nice and also kind of weird!

2. Quinoa flakes for breakfast – I’ve been eating oats and such for breakfast for many weeks now, and it was time to try something new. The flakes taste very nutty and look like cute little springs 😀 I cook mine for about 5 minutes (1/3 cup flakes, 1 cup milk) and add honey for sweetness.

3. Watermelon!!! – one of my favorite fruit. I can imagine being able to eat a whole watermelon at one sitting. But here I had to make do with a quarter.

4. Home grown herbs remember my little “garden”? Some of the herbs are growing like crazy (parsley), some are very slow (oregano)… plus they’re baby herbs and there aren’t that many of them. But it’s so nice to be able to grab a few and put them in a salad. I’m planning on buying big plants though, especially basil and chives!

What are your favorites at the moment?

My own little herb garden

The last days have been really busy for me and I had no time (nor strenght!) to post here. This time of the year always brings a lot of changes, plus it makes me kind of slow and sleepy. Do you also have it?

Some time ago I found a cool thing – ‘herb crate’. I’ve always wanted to have fresh herbs at home but I thought it was a difficult task to grow them and take care of them everyday. But turns out it’s nothing complicated!

I got a crate with chives, oregano, basil and parsley.

First they weren’t growing at all and I wasn’t sure how much and how often I should water them. You can imagine how happy I was when I saw this little green baby one morning!

Now I have a lot of babies!

I can’t wait for them to be big enough so that I can eat them, mwahahaha!

In other news, I made this salad the other day and it was so good!

It’s corn salad (apparently also called Lewiston cornsalad, lamb’s lettuce, fetticus, field salad, mâche, feldsalat, nut lettuce and rapunzel… TMI, Wiki!) with mozzarella, strawberries and sesame seeds, plus balsamic vinegar.

How have you been doing lately?
