A few months have passed since my last post in November. Since then, a new decade has begun. And now it’s already February of 2020…! Time flies
As preparations for my recital in the beginning of January took up a lot of time and focus, I skipped the usual end-of-year things and ignored the holidays altogether. No massive end-of-year cleaning, holiday cooking, New Year things. After the recital, it took a long time to recover, physically as well as mentally (this probably due to just getting older…,) and so I’m finally resurfacing here almost a month after the recital. More on this topic perhaps another time.
But here are some of the things I did cook up during this time. Even though this winter here has been incredibly mild, even too mild for my taste, I like making oatmeal for breakfast during colder months. Here is one variation from when I happened to have some fresh fruits around. I usually cook oatmeal with low-fat milk and add honey and dried cranberries. Here, topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries and apple slices.
Even though I ignored the entire holiday season, the supermarket nearby had a few nice “holiday sales” for items such as these: a mini-charcuterie board.
Yesterday, it was time again for my meat sauce. This time a cheesy variation by just adding some shredded cheese to the sauce before tossing in the pasta.
