I enjoy listening to the Joy the Baker podcast, it always makes a day at work pass a bit more quickly. And last week they gave their listeners “homework”, to list 5 things we love right now. And since I have a few things I wanted to share, I’m taking part in this.
Reading About and Preserving Food:
I want to garden, and then I want to preserve the food that I harvest in my imaginary garden. Oh well, a girl can dream, but nevertheless I am preserving some things, like a small batch of not quite ripe strawberries made into jam or the bounty of lemons I preserved in salt to use later on in Moroccan dishes. Tajines, here I come. And there is still orange vodka to make.
Life As A Student:
Because I have lots of holidays, or just days without real schedule (the papers usually have to wait until about a week before I have to hand them in), and I really enjoy it. This Wednesday, my boyfriend and I are off to Berlin for a few days. We are visiting a friend of mine who lives and studies in Berlin for half a year, and we also plan to see the city and eat lots of great food.
Because even when they are covered in snow, they are a sure sign that spring is here/near. Can’t wait for the days that can be spent outside, enjoying the bike mentioned above, drinking coffee/or beer depending on what time it is, and eating all the asparagus, peas, strawberries… I can get my hands on.
