Saturdays are for..


Waking up in the morning without the alarm clock screaming it’s lungs out, sipping your coffee silently in the garden while your legs are getting tanned under the morning sun, taking care of the flowers you received last week – trimming them, splitting them in different vases 🙂 Image

Taking the time to do a little house cleaning, some online shopping and your nails in shimmering colors :D, a little nap at noon cuddling with your fiance (in my case) and finally, trying out a new recipe in the kitchen.Image

This time I cooked Tagliatelle with spinach and Cheddar 🙂

Ingredients

  • 300 g pastas Tagliatelle
  • 150 g Cheddar cheese
  • 1 spoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 250 g spinach
  • garlic and onion
  • salt, pepper and paprika (the quantity depends on your own taste)
  • 100 ml sour cream
  • 2 spoons of sunflower kernel

Boil the pastas follwing the instructions on the box (I used Barilla, so the time was 6 minutes).

Meanwhile, cook the garlic and the onion (you choose how much) for aprox. 3 minutes in olive oil. Add the spinach, peeper and the sour cream and mix them for 5 minutes tops, with a wooden spoon. Add the sunflower seeds and after 1 minute add the pastas, as well.  Mix them all a little in the frying pan and add the Cheddar cheese and the paprika.

Et voila, food for the heart and for the stomach in a few minutes! 🙂 Enjoy!Image

Hello, November!


Sunday mornings are all about getting up late, yawning your heart out and hiding under the warm embrasses of your goose feather duvet. Everyone has its’ own idea of how Sunday mornings should be spent. Mine involves a hot cup of black tea to wake up my senses, while snuggling in my huge bed filled with fluffy, colored pillows, holding a magazine in one hand and with the other, strolling through Tumblr I can’t help but multitask, even on this beautiful, sunny morning 😉

The second best think about the bedroom (fallowing, of course, the immensity of the wardrobe) is the view: yellow, burgundy, a splash of green and chocolaty leaves brightened by these early rays of November sun. And while the garden turned into a carpet of leaves, I can’t help but smile at the green explosion that covers all the windowsills. It is said that flowers grow better if you talk to them on a calm, loving tone 🙂 even if it’s not proven to be true, saying positive thoughts out loud gives you a general optimistic feeling. So give it a try!

This sunday is even more special because it’s the first of many spent in our new bedroom, our peach colored bedroom, filled with bits and pieces of our individual persoanlities. Therfore, lots of kissing was involved, cuddling and laughter 🙂
