my second home

I'm back in the apartment where I spent my summer
friends I know for so long
they give me peace and cosyness
the lavender blue in the sleeping room is very relaxing

cooking with Ottolenghi

I got the tip from my friend T.
she is turning more to a vegetarian
while I'm turning after 20 years sometimes back to meat
to cook all day long vegetables in different ways
is just not that simple to be honest
so trying out some recipes from Ottolenghis different cookbooks

I mean, I can be happy
that I live in Antwerp in the moroccon quarter close to "Chinatown"as well
all this different ingredients are not easy to find

Thats what I cooked the last days
a lot with tomatos, they are sweet and incredible cheap at the moment

ok, I think Ottolenghi does a great job!

plants & pots

some new plants with tiny flowers
first geranium ever: pelargonium ocellatum
another green-purple one: tradescantia fluminensis
aloës from hortus Amsterdam and plantentuin Meise does it well:
aloë ciliaris Haw.
in Belgium I find the best plants on the flea!
