Dinner last night with my in-law was a great success and they loved it all (and so did we) so I was quite full when I went to bed. This morning I decided that enough was enough and with the weather sooooo lovely today I figured it was time to get serious about shaping up for the summer. That means you’re probably gonna see quite a lot of salads here in the near future and possibly other healthy stuff. And ofcourse, excercise, exercise, exercise!
The weather forecast for today predicted a lovely 20-21 °C, so I was happy that I only had one appointment today to shoot a cat. That sounds horribleI mean; take photos of the cat ofcourse! Beautiful animal too!!
I had initially planned on making something out of a salad book I have. It features 150 different salads and some will probably be really good, but this book…. has no photos or not a lot anyway. And a cookbook without photos, just cannot grab my attention long enough! I just have to look at the pictures!! Not sure why I bought the book to be honest, as I tend to buy the books based on the photos first and recipes second…:) Anyway, I had some rocket leftover from yesterday plus some other green that I wanted to use, so I ended making a sort of Greek salad version with feta. It was delicious and the one slice of bread I had with it at least makes me feel full long enough. When I eat a salad for lunch it has disappeared by 3 pm and I feel hungry again, so having some bread with it prevents that from happening!
If you would like to try; here is what is in the salad
I am gonna be playing around a bit with backgrounds for the photos as I just want to try some other stuff, then just the regular white or plain background. I like the red here, but need to buy more pieces of fabric. Maybe when we go to cooking class tomorrow I have time to go to the market and have a look around!
Have a great weekend! It’s gonna be patisserie tomorrow in class!!
