A Yummy Week

   Sorry for my absence, I had trouble uploading my pictures this week, but I'm good now! 
   I'm finally feeling settled in our new rhythm of life. School is going well, & I hope to do a post about it soon. I also had some lovely visits with new friends, so the week has been quite delightful.
   As I look back at my random pictures from the week, I have to laugh. Most of them are of food! I got some pictures of other subjects, but the majority are of yummies. =P We've eaten well this week.

   This is a soft boiled egg. Basically it's like a hard boiled egg, but creamier & the yolk is runny. I used these instructions & my eggs turned out wonderful! (I cooked mine for about five & a half minutes.) You should give it a go, they make a delicious & easy breakfast! 

   Sabbath Tea from last week. 

   Mum has been amazing with our suppers. The other night she made this focaccia with rosemary loaf & used our leftover couscous, vegetables, & eggs to make this lovely medley of flavors! I hope I can cook like her one day...

   This was my first ever green smoothie! I've been wanting to try one for a while, and I'm so glad I finally did. If you've never heard of a green smoothie, basically it's made with fruit & some kind of leafy green. My friend Emily sent me this recipe & it wasn't just tolerable, it was good! I'm definitely going to make it again, it gave me a ton of energy & I felt so healthy!

1 cup milk
1 tablespoon flax
1 tablespoon peanut butter
A handfull of spinach
One banana (preferably frozen)
3 ice cubes

It makes about 2 glasses though, so next time I will probably half it.

   Then Saturday we had a grand adventure going to the village of Coton. I got a ton of lovely pictures which I will share with you soon! But for now, here is a picture of my humble yet tasty picnic lunch. Nutella & Pringles are the best.

   What can I say? I really like food. =)


  1. This made me laugh. Food posts are the best. :) Your photography skills are improving so much!! These were pinterest-worthy. :) And wow, that friend of yours, Emily?, must have really great green smoothie taste.
