You might already know that we have our first week of Holiday. The first 3 weeks of June are actually my regular Holiday period. And because we wanted to finally fix our garden, we decided to not go on Holiday this year, but stay at home.
I wanted to relax, rest and make a lot of new recipes. But until now I haven’t spend one minute in the kitchen to make a new recipe. We are busier at the moment than when we are working. Monday Jens started with the garden and I started on the kitchen cabinets. And that continued throughout the week. Every day I cleaned another cabinet in the house, I emptied it, took photos of the things I wanted to sell, cleaned the cabinet and reorganized it. Jens is still working on the garden and at the moment usually at the garden shed. He is doing a lot of different things in it, made his own work bench and changed our garden shed into a work place. So nice that we finally have the time to organize everything and see it getting better.
And of course Leyla also gets enough attention. Yesterday we started the day with a nice walk on the beach and the day before we made a walk through the woods. I love being in nature early in the morning and enjoy the time with the three of us during these weeks.
Last week I decided to make muesli bars to take with me to work. I was at the supermarket and saw puffed spelt and though that would be perfect to make the bars. I everything according to my good recipe, pressed the muesli bars into the mold, but when I got it out of the mold they fell apart and weren’t firm enough to become muesli bars. But when I saw that mixture laying down, I saw that I had made a delicious granola. This shows that when something fails it can still lead to something beautiful and it did because this granola was really delicious!
