So far so good

My vegetarianism has been going well. So happy that I haven’t caved yet, though a few weeks ago I was craving some roasted chicken with lemon, rosemary and garlic really really bad! Luckily there are many yummie things to occupy my mind and mouth ;)
Like these lovely summer fruits. Super sweet mango from Suriname. Sun ripened nectarine with Greek yoghurt and honey hmmmm.

And for those lazy days some steamed turnip buns from the frozen food section. Soba noodle soup with kimchi, fried tofu and a soft eggy.
Stuffed aubergines, tzatziki and couscous with grilled vegetables. Fresh tagliatelle with a tomato sauce, courgettes and freshly grated parmesan.

Guess I still have plenty of inspiration to keep going. And soon I’ll be sharing more of those lovely recipes with you again.

Have a good week everyone!

Kitty cat

The other day I was browsing the web for new crochet idea's and I got totally inspired to crochet my cat a new nest. That would also take care of that leftover yarn I had no idea what to do with. Or so I thought. Cause of course those two leftover balls were never going to be enough (I had to buy 5 more), but hey it was fun to do! And just look at my little monster being happy in his new nest :)
I'm still going to add a bit of pillowing underneath so it's a bit more comfy for him. And although I tried to crochet nice and tight the sides don't stay up to well, guess I'll have to reinforce them with something. Wire, plastic strips, I dunno. Idea's anyone?

The simple things

Don’t you just love those days when you’re doing whatever and all of the sudden you spot this beautiful thing that just makes your day. Like the sun hitting those lovely purple flowers you happened to pass by. They look so pretty and perfect, like they were made just for you to have this small moment of blissful happiness. Really wanted to share these pretty flowers with you :)
