Summer love salad

21 Mar

That breeze in your face, the sun on your arms and the love in your heart. But now you are hungry. What to eat that will not throw this feeling away but actually enhances it? The Summer Love Salad!

Ingredients:

  • 100 gr goat cheese
  • 1 green sweet pepper
  • 2 medium sized tomatoes
  • 10-15 grapes (add more if you want)
  • 2 big spoons of corn
  • 200 gr of green salad
  • 50 gr leek
  • 200 gr melon (yellow one)
  • Dressing consists of:
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 1 tea spoon of salt
  • hot pepper, as much as makes you happy

 

Now what?

Take the sweet pepper and slice it in 4 chunks, after you have washed it. Then take each chunk and slice it in even lines of about 0,5 cm.

Wash the tomatoes and slice them in even sizes cubes. Don’t peel of the skin! (half of the vitamines 🙂 )

Take the melon and do the same (of course here you do get rid of the skin..).

The goat cheese feels a bit mushy, which is good, but it does make it harder to get it into even chunks. Good news! They do not have to be! Just make small pieces and add them to the rest.

The grapes (preferably without the seed, if they do contain it, lose them!) are best divided in even slices.

Add the freshly washed corn and the green salad to the rest.

Take the dressing and mix it through the whole family (I prefer using my clean hands, but feel free).

 

Take this salad to where you were just enjoying the summer breeze and enjoy it. Maximum effect when you put on a Norah Jones cd!

Missed you

11 Mar

I have missed you

you simply left

heard others talk about you

filled with joy

anticipation and happyness

I have waited

impatiently I must admit

how I have been counting

weeks, days and hours

Here you are

You’ve send your friends ahead

Mr and Miss Butterfly

How I have missed you

but here you are

as if your leaving never occured

Warm me up

Holde me close

Filled with joy and carressed by a breeze

Welcome back

for Spring has begun

Celebrate being you

29 Apr

How the wind blows and messes up your hair! You are frowning but look at how many people might think it’s adorable.

The sun shining in your eyes making you close them half. While you are grumbling, others might think you are sexy looking through your eye lashes.

Celebrate all moments in life as if they are the last ones you have.

Would you really be so angry about missing your train if those clouds were be the last thing you saw?

Would you really be annoyed by a friend for ditching a get together if something bad would have happened while driving your way?

Would you?

I don’t think you would. You know why? Because I think that a self-loving person adores life in all her glory. Celebrating rain as a major clean up and dancing in the sun for the warmth it gives like a womb.

Celebrate yourself and embrace your life. Don’t be surprised if you smile more now…
