A new home – a new place & yummy treats // + Playlist



*

It’s almost been a whole month since I moved cities. A new home, new places
and paths, new cafés and meadows, a whole new feeling.
It can be hard to feel comfortable when everything is new and you don’t
know so many people that can help you feeling welcome.
So for me it was all about using autumn’s gifts and turn them into
yummy treats. I took the last carrots with me from the garden and they
became the most delicious carrot cake with walnuts and hazelnuts. 

I also enjoyed the last beetroot and apples from the garden
before my aunt and dad treated me with some more fruits
and vegetables from their garden. Pears, plums, apples, more beetroot and 
more carrots, pumpkin, garlic, walnuts, apple juice, cabbage turnip
and black radish. 

So every morning could start with something delicious
and on other days I prepared a quiche with pumpkin and mushrooms for
lunch or a danish with plums as a treat as well as an apple cake 
for my brothers birthday with sweet cinnamon crumble. 
Other mornings were very slow and perfect for over night oats and porridge
such as this warming one with roasted bananas and apples.

But it was also about finding my own green places. 
A meadow that became mine, a river and stones that became mine, a picnic place that
became mine, 
cats I meet daily on the streets or that I watched being cozy on the window sill in other homes. 
Willow slowly started to make this home into his too after
having trouble with the noises, brightness and new scents. 
Now he has his place by the window and on the blanket
if he doesn’t go back to bed with me.

Garden party / Thyme lemonade recipe



On Monday Florian and I prepared a little summer garden BBQ for these girls.
We had a garland and lights hanging above the table and went on a little sunset walk up the hill.


We prepared grilled avocado filled with chickpeas and cucumber, vegetable skewers , a lot
of grilled cheese, marinated cauliflower and baked sweet potato.
For dessert we had berries and grilled peaches with vanilla
ice cream!
The girls also brought a filled bread with cheese and balsamic onions, ( so incredible yummy!!)
tomato salad and a paprika bread! :)

 I also made thyme lemonade for the first time which was really good and simple as well!

All you need is:

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1 handfull of thyme (or a little less if you don’t like it too intense)
1 cup fresh jemon juice

cook sugar, water and thyme until the sugar is dissolved,
put it in the fridge over night
and mix 1 part syrup with 1 part lemon juice
and put it in a big jar filled with ice cubes.
Fill the open space with sparkling
water and enjoy your fresh lemonade on
a hot summer day!
and add some wild strawberries when you serve it! It looks extra cute!
