The updates have been scarce because the wifi decided to stop working completely. Life, however, has been going on as normal (as normal as possible under the circumstances).
Normal life also requires eating. Some people reading this blog
appreciate the food posts so here goes, I present to thee some of the
(semi-vegetarian) dishes that have made it down my mouth this week.
1. Salad with salmon, feta cheese, avocado and dried
Ingredients: lettuce, carrot, tomato, smoked salmon, feta
cheese, avocado and dried cranberries.
The secret of this dish lies in the variation of texture and
flavours, and how they complement each other. The first time I tasted the combo
smoked salmon + cheese + dried cranberries was actually at the airport in
Stockholm last weekend, and I was really surprised at how well these ingredients
go together. Try it!
This salad was accompanied by a good book (the third part of
1Q84) and the essential diet coke.
2. Fruit salad
It may not look like much for the world (and the bowl makes it
look even worse), but this slightly colourless fruit salad with Greek yoghurt
was delicious. And the ingredients? 1 apple, 1 banana and ½ an orange. The only
thing missing was a pinch of cinnamon.
3. And then there was some cheating….
OK, those of you who know me, might be familiar with the fact
that I can be picky about food, at least most of the time. One of the rules is
that food should be fresh and another one holds that it should have a
purpose. But. There are certain foods that bring back a lot of
sentimental memories. When I visited Athens in 2003 I was always served this
certain kind of croissant for breakfast. So, when I saw it in the supermarket
the other day, well, of course I had to buy one.
The truth is that it tasted good, but as far as treats go
(instead of cheats), I would pick that fruit salad any day.
