Notes

Baking & Cooking

Cherry Clafoutis
My baking loving daughter wanted to make this clafout together with me, but in the end she found cutting the pits out of the cherries such a dreadful job that she left it for me. Because I don't particular like it either, I think this was the first and last time we made clafoutis.

Pasta Pesto
I really had the intention to make this pesto, but used the freshly made supermarket pesto when the moment was there. It's delicious and I couldn't make it better. So I took the easy way and saved a lot of time.

Macadamia Cookies
As  a vegetarian I have to eat nuts every now and then. Macadamias are my favorites, but around this part of the world they cost a fortune, so most of the time I stick to pecans. But I just couldn't resist these cookies and they were even better than I tought they would be!


Grazing Board
My daughter loves to make all kinds of little bites that don't take too much to make, so a grazing board is perfect for her. All things on the board were her idea.



Buying

Book The Goddessess
To be honest I haven't finished the book I started to read two weeks ago, but I just don't like the book that much. I'm reading The Traveling Cat Chronicles, that I found on the bestseller's display in the bookstore and that I chose because of the words Traveling and Cat in it, especially the last one, but for now I'm a bit disappointed, so I ordered The Goddessess, which I found on a summer bucketlist on Martha Stewart.  The story takes place in Hawaii and that's enough for me for wanting it to read.

Did you read The Traveling Cat Chronicles? What did  you think about it, should I read on?

Cleaning
Due to temperatures  around 36 degrees Celsius (97 Fahrenheit) I didn't feel like cleaning that much at all, but throwing a lemon in the dishwasher was something that I could work up.
