tomato fried egg sandwich

There are days when I don’t feel like having a big dinner or days when my head is too tired to deal with a new recipe and everything I would usually make just doesn’t seem appealing. Those days I call sandwich days.

A sandwich can be just as good as a cooked meal, it’s just made a lot faster and I’m all for fast meals these days. This fried egg sandwich is a big favorite in our home. It’s done in no time, but is so filling that I hardly have room for dessert after this.


cottage cheese toast with grapes

Rok and I were talking about school the other day. We’ve both been out of Uni for a few years now and it’s amazing how life changes when you’re done with it. We went from having days filled mostly with school to not thinking about it at all.

I don’t really miss it, I don’t miss the teachers (with one or two exceptions) or the work, but sometimes I do miss the simplicity of it. Saying that is kind of an oxymoron, as the word simple and school don’t really go together and “simple” was never a part of my school vocabulary.

Nothing seemed simple back then, but now when I look at it, it actually was in a lot of ways. School filled the majority of my life, of all our lives and very little time was left for anything else. And knowing what you have to do every day is simple. We had a job to do and while it seemed hard at the time, it really wasn’t.


blueberry layer cake

Oh, I made a cake. Just a short time after I told you about how I don’t like to bake when it’s hot outside. Which is still true, but, ohhhh damn, I just knew I wouldn’t be able to stay away from the oven.

I’m stubborn. Probably less now than I was when I was younger, but I still am. And when I want something, like homemade over-the-top blueberry layer cake, well I just have to have it. Who cares about sweating in the kitchen (well, I do care a little), doing a ton of dishes, when you get a piece of blueberry cake in the end? Or two? It’s worth it.

It was also our anniversary week, when I made the cake, because I thought doing something special like this would be fun. We don’t have dessert like this one every day.


chamomile iced tea

Are you a coffee or tea drinker? I admit I never really ask people this, but I do always get the impression that it’s an important question as well as the answer that follows. Coffee drinkers and tea drinkers can be friends, right? We don’t hate each other? One can be both?

I admit I’m more of a coffee drinker. I want to get into the habit of drinking more tea, especially in the evenings but I haven’t done that yet. I’ve been trying for a while and just cannot commit to it. It’s funny because I love trying new tea varieties and I stock up on a lot of tea, especially during the colder months, but then I never finish drinking the whole box. Which is why I have a shelf in the kitchen packed with tea, but that’s a story for another day.
