Donna Hay Challenge #9 – Goat’s cheese, lemon and pea pasta

If anything became very clear during challenge #8 is that 1. I should not make it too difficult, 2. It helps if I also make the recipe first. 😉 Ok, boys and girls, the message has come across and I will make sure I prepare the recipe myself first and I will not make it too difficult to do. Given…

Goatcheese lemon pasta

I see a flutter of wings when the magpie family lands on the windowsill right in front of my office window. It’s rainy and windy outside and they’ve taken the liberty to use our windowsill as a hide-out when it gets too wet in the trees.

See the lovely green color of those peas?? 🙂 I used frozen ones this time! Will not make the mistake of using canned peas (as here) again! Today was a national holiday so we kind of spend the day cooking. Let me be more specific; I have been cooking (and baking) and Tom was busy (spring)cleaning the shed. After all…

Prosciutto, pea & mozarella salad with mint vinaigrette

I really felt like eating something healthy today. After a weekend full of unhealthy stuff… it was about time! I had spend the weekend going through my (enormous) pile of cooking magazines and re-organized everything by title. You see; I have this magazine addiction which can take on very large proportions. I have to clean my ‘office’ once every so…
