My favourite coffee shop has opened their summer garden and I can’t get enough. I try to stop by at least twice a week just so I could sit outside with a delicious drink of cup of coffee. (I can’t really use my balcony for that because it only gets shade in the early morning and then in the evening.)
They have the best coffee and make excellent mimosas. Win/win!
And I take my mum along now and then, too. 🙂
I still haven’t had any local strawberries this year (apparently the horrid weather in May destroyed them all) but luckily I’ve been able to get some strawberries from Poland. I eat them every day now because their season will be over before we know it. I usually eat them with yogurt and a handful of my home-made granola. Best dessert ever.
And I also had to make these strawberry pancakes.
I’ve also been making Buddha bowls a lot lately. I can’t get enough all these fresh veggies. I always try to up the protein so I usually add some eggs, salmon, lentils of tofu.
This one is carrot, cucumber, orange, turkey, goat cheese.
Bell pepper, cucumber, carrot, iceberg salad, gherkin, black lentils, egg.
Bed of rocket, kohlrabi, carrot, cucumber, black lentils, tofu, egg.
Other things I’ve been lately include:
Tofu, cheese and vegetable tacos.
Lemon minestrone soup.
Grilled cheese, aubergine, potato and zuccchini.
Spinach, chorizo and parmesan pasta.
Last Saturday was the last theatre play of the season. I loved my mum’s outfit!
I wore my new Promod dress.
Our Harkness rose has been making me very happy lately. It smells heavenly.
I wish poppies kept longer than 24 hours in a vase.
How pretty is this lavender soda? There are recipes for summery sodas in every issue of every food magazine I read and I intend to try all of them. This one is my favourite so far.
– go to a place I’ve never been to before (if everything goes well, it should be happening very soon)
– if possible, have Eda around for a couple of weeks and spend as much time outside with her as possible
– have breakfast on the balcony as often as possible
– slow down, in every aspect, and relax
– most importantly, I want us all to be healthy and happy
What are your goals for this summer?
