"A lot of thought goes into a comfort food - usually the secret ingredient is love and a little time, a dash of patience with just the right amount of grace and restraint. You stick to your intuition and stay within the boundaries and with the right hint of salt, you find that soothing balance that lingers in hearts for years to come."
I love eating. I love cooking. I love grocery shopping. I love filling my fridge with fresh vegetables, fancy cheeses and meats, whole milk, Greek yoghurt and fresh eggs. These things are probably the highlight of my day. And it doesn't end there... After I usually make myself some tea, grab a cookie or two or three, find myself a comfy spot with a blanket and my ipad to browse through Pinterest, Bloglovin and the WWW for inspiration and new recipes.
I recently saw this TED talk about being a weekday vegetarian. The idea is not to eat any meat on weekdays. This is a less extreme way to become a vegetarian instead of all or nothing. Like he says in the video... Can you imagine eating your last steak ever!? I like meat, but I don't need it. It's definitely food for thought. You know your eco footprint, etc. There are so many great recipes with meat. Now I'll just keep them for the weekends.
Watch the TED talk here.
I have been following many blogs the past weeks and have been thinking if I should get to it again or not. Great food, beautiful interiors, heart warming families, inspiration and overall great photography. I still love sharing through Pinterest and Instagram, but I lost my DSLR charger... So I usually take pictures with my ipad. These are great for memories (and instagram acceptable), but terribly embarrassing for blogging. Oh and my macbook broke down. It was kind of heartbreaking. So maybe soon I will recover from this loss and find my charger so I can post a bit more in this abandoned place of mine
In the meantime some blogs that have been high on my reading list:
A Cup of Joe - always good
1-2 simple cooking blog - a new discovery
Brinja - love her personal style
C. Jane Kendrick - I love how she writes (her birth stories are beautiful)
Hither and Thither - definitely a favourite
Mrs. Lilien - also a new discovery
My New Roots
Soulemama - makes me want to grow everything and live a simple and beautiful life
my scandinavian home
reading my tea leaves
smitten kitchen - great recipes, her cookbook is awesome
P.S. How is it possible I had never heard of Bloglovin until now?! What a time saver!
