Good morning makes your day. When you get up, have a shower, listen to some good music and eat delicious breakfast, it will make you happy. It makes me happy for sure.
I went to Rome for few days and I ate as much pizza as never before. It was delicious! Ok I haven’t been eating only pizza, there was other yummy food as well. I think I’ve gained on 2 kg at least. I came back, few days passed and I couldn’t stop thinking about pizza. I’ve made a breakfast pizza some time ago and you must believe me, it is a perfect start of a day. This time I wanted to try something new but in a similar spirit - stromboli. It looks and sounds italian to me, but apparently it’s origin come from United States. Surprise surprise :)
iPhoto has just swallowed 2/3 of my pictures! Only few left (you can see it in a post) and it makes me very very unhappy. But a girl has to do what a girl has to do, so I’ll post this ones.
My souffle collapsed a bit, but was delicious. A friend told me that it takes a good good chef to make a souffle that won’t collapse. I think she’s right. Let me know if yours didn’t.
Do you have these days from time to time, when you prepare a breakfast while your partner walks around you and asks each 5 seconds if he can eat it already? Well, I had a morning like this today and I have to admit that I wasn’t surprised. Figs were so ripe and delicious that I ate few pieces while I was making the sandwiches ;) The recipe is very simple, fast and worth trying out. Take an advantage of fresh figs in stores and crunch something sweet in the morning!
I am currently in search for an apartment in Berlin and I have to admit that it is an experience I’ll never forget. Five years ago I was going through a similar process in Sydney. I was looking for something interesting online, going to the indicated address at the specified time, and there have already been 50 others, interested in the same place. Of course, there was usually a principle “first come first served”, so one person was waiting in a line to see an apartment and the other was waiting for a phone in front of the agency, ready to submit papers and to pay bond. It was a real fight, no friendships were made. By the way, there has been a series of papers, like a bank statement, proof of employment for the past three months, recommendations from previous landlords and so one. For some of you it sounds obvious, but not for all :) I remember that at the time I used to think that such things may happen only in Australia. Well, Berlin is the same. Crowds are waiting, a collection of papers in a briefcase is obligatory and not enouch cool apartments is vacant. In addition, in the apartments there is usually no kitchen equipment, not even a sink. Nevertheless, I found a dream apartment, Iapplied for it and I hope I’ll get this one or maybe something similar. Berlin is definitely worth it.
Are you also totally consumed by preparation for Easter? I am currently searching for some interesting recipes and each new blog makes me change my mind. This will be the first easter that I’m actually going to make something so I am very exited. I’ve collected 7 recipes so far and I can’t wait to start.
I should reduce sweet breakfasts that I love so much. I can’t do it for long, that’s for sure, but I can at least start. Today I had an amazing pesto crepes by Nigella Lawson. It’s a quick one and you can fry them in the evening and just reheat in the morning.
Searching for new recipes is like an adventure. Sometimes it’s difficult and I don’t feel like preparing anything. Fortunately most of times I’m able to find something just perfect.
As spring is coming and everything very slowly starts to grow, I feel like herbs and vegetables. I’m sure you do as well. I especially like tomatoes. So today I made some delicious sandwiches. But first I baked the biscuits.
I’m still in the beer bread subject. I’m honestly in love with it. And since my friends know that I like breakfast, they quite often ask what I had in the morning. I can answer beer and it makes me happy as a child.
