It’s May! Can you believe in it? One month ago it was cold, snowy and dark. Today it could not be more beautiful. It makes me very happy.
Can you feel spring? It’s officially here. I can feel it in my bones and sun helps to believe in what’s happening. I hope that for the next two months it will be warm and beautiful. It’s hard to work with birds singing outside, but a girl has to do what she has to do.
Two days ago the sun appeared in Berlin. It was a sign to leave my apartment as fast as possible. To draw you a picture - when it’s sunny everyone dance on streets and no one stays inside. That’s why I went on an Open Air Festival in a full sun and I had the best weekend. I really hope that a warm weather will stick to Berlin and that I’ll be able to wear my summer dresses soon. Also good outdoor events start to appear in my city. On Thursday I’m going on a Street Food Thursday, where I’ll be able to taste goodies from all over the world. If you’re happen to be in Berlin, it will be hosted each Thursday. There may be lines, as my friend warned me, but it’s worth waiting for something delicious.
One of advantages of temporarily living in California is an unlimited access to California oranges. Since 6 weeks T, squeezed pounds of them and I’m trying to add it to almost each meal. As you all know oranges contain a large dose of vitamin C, so it’s all about health, not this amazing juicy and refreshing taste.
Today I made it simple. Everything started form a conversation and childhood memories. I don’t know if it was only Poland, but we used to have semolina for a breakfast quite often. My mum used to add a spoon of jam, so it was sweet and I loved it! You can go extreme and add a spiced strawberry sauce or maybe a home made jam if you made some this year.
Each day I learn something amazing. Like for example that in American recipes 1 cup is not realy one regular cup but a measuring cup. The same situation is with a tablespoon. The thing is that I am in love with some american blogs and I use their recipes quite often. Of course all this time I was using my favorite coffee cup and my soup’s tablespoon to measure. Then I’ve heard from a friend that it’s not exactly right.
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.
I have a strange time lately. Too many things to do, too many obligations and sometimes things just don’t go right. For instance I lost my iPhone, it was with me for 4 years and was hardly working, but I liked it. And it wasn’t a banal death - a car run over it. And now I know that I should also write everything down on a paper, not only in my phone ;)
Those of you who sometimes visit my blog know, that I love quinoa. This feeling results in the eternal search for new recipes. However I’ve never mentioned why I like it so much and it’s not just because of a lovely crunch that I feel while I bite it.
