Martha Wanna Be #4

This week's list

It was a busy, emotional depleting week. The friend I told you about earlier, the one with cancer, died this week. I'm really glad I've seen her just hours before she died. In this same week I also flied to Menorca to celebrate the birthday of one my best and oldest friends, a surprise party we were busy organizing since January. The cremation ceremony happened to be on the same day I would fly to Menorca, so the days before I was in doubt about what to do because whatever I would choose, I would feel guilty.  In the end I chose to go to Menorca, also because there was a goodbye ceremony on Tuesday that I visited, but the choice wasn't easy. 

Anyway, because of all this, I didn't have much time to keep up with the chores I planned for this week.

Vegetable Plate with Dips
This week my parents came over for a barbecue, because it's exceptionally hot here in The Netherlands for the May month, and as a side dish I made these dips for all sorts of vegetables. Look at these colors! Love it! 

Fried Egg Plant
While I thought it couldn't be very difficult to make the fried eggplant that I ate while I was on vacation in Menorca, mine didn't look and didn't taste like it. So, up to the trash bin with my made up my own recipe. 


Clean Vans with baking soda
I didn't really believe anything could take out the smell in my Vans since I wore them just once without socks, but the baking soda could. It really worked!


On the day that I went to Menorca, thursday that was, I made a nice lunch box for my daughters, to remind them that I would not forget them while I was in Menorca.
