I am a bad bad girl, as I eat so many delicious things that soon my running and exercising will not be enough. I blame Sydney. My friend told me that Sydney is a capital of breakfasts and he was right. There’s so many great places and so much of delicious food, that it’s difficult to control myself. There is one meal I need to mention, easy and obvious, but we have a tendency to forget about recipes like this one. I am talking about a bacon and egg sandwich.

BLT is a very simple sandwich but it will rock your day. I used to believe that the best one you can get in San Francisco’s Devil’s Teeth Baking Company. But then I made this one at home out of ingredients I got on one of Barcelona’s farmer market.

Sometimes there’s just not enough time in the morning. Sometimes alarm clock forgets to ring, cats are too heavy and they’re sleeping on your quilt so you’re stuck for a while under it and then you have only 15 minutes to take a shower and run to work. Pan con tomate is a spanish breakfast for one of this days. It is almost too easy to mention about, but we have a tendency to keep forgetting about simple things, so this is a small reminder :)

Love comes with a price, in a situation I will describe literally with price. I adopted a street cat in Barcelona - sweet little Lola. Ryszard (our little treasure) fell in love with her and accepted her straight away, she was the one fizzing around for first few days. After a month we are a happy family of four. But, as a responsible owner I had to check if she’s healthy, give her some medicines, vaccinations and make a passport, as little Lola will be flying to Berlin with us in few months. And O MAMA, it’s so expensive. I feel like adopting a fancy cat, as I spent a small fortune on her. I love her already, Ryszard has companion to his night runs, Mr. T. carries her around and they share secrets. And when we all go to bed and she sleeps next to me, I know it was all worth it. Then Lola and Ryszard wake me ten times during a night and I have doubts. Is it an introduction to motherhood?

Moving is exciting, isn’t it? New places, new people, new possibilities. But then the day comes when you wish to bake something delicious, your oven does not contain a baking tray and you start to miss home. You organize it somehow and life is beautiful again.

I made some delicious and sweet things for breakfast. Some of them were time consuming and cost me a lot of effort. One of these things were french toasts. You know why? Because I made my own brioche. Sounds easy? Not really as I did not have a mixer and I had to mix dough with my own hands. It took me three attempts to finally made one that grew properly.

I had to make my taxes in 3 countries this year, don’t ask me why/how/WTF, I can’t even say a word “taxes” anymore. I just hope that it’s all good. This forbidden word equals stress in my case. When I stress out, I eat sweets, but not any sweets, I eat super extra good sweets.

What is the best possible breakfast option? I would say breakfast with friends. Especially when you miss them so much every day. It also helps when they like what you’ve prepared (it makes my heart sing).

Do you remember me writing that I’ll have a break from work and traveling for a while? So I’m in Warsaw! It’s my home city and I love it. If you’ll ever have a chance to visit Warsaw, just do it. The best part of it is that I’ll be staying with the sweetest polish gal and this time Mr T is with me :) Have a lovely weekend everyone!

I’m obsessed with one song and I listen to it over and over again. I have this strong feeling that the more I like it, the more Mr T starts to hate it. Why boys are not as us girls and they don’t feel like listening to something all the time? So I’m trying to be understanding and I wear headphones to ease his pain. He tells me that me singing is not a good substitute. Boys, it’s impossible to make them happy.
