New Ride

I have a new bike. And it is not just new to me. It is really brand new. After many years of buying used bikes it feels good to get one that doesn't already come with particularities. I am sure I will spend many wonderful hours riding this around town.

In the summer it is always nice to take a walk though Barokhaven, the garden of Frederiksborg Castle. I spend my last afternoon in Denmark there with my parents and enjoyed all the green and symmetry.

Sunday Is... no. 16

A trip to the country side.
My Aunt is selling her house. Therefore I suggested that we would go and visit, while I was in Denmark last weekend, as it might be the last summer she spends there.

A few of the many nice things about the place is that the beach is just nearby, there is a friendly neighbor with lost of cherry trees and another one who catches scrimps in the summer.

So of cause we had some nice fresh scrimps and after all the hard work getting them ready and the meal, we went for a walk along the water where there was a jelly fish invasion, like I have never seen. Sadly the birds had beat us to the cherries, but instead I found a lot of luck in the grass.

"Hot" Food

Like the rest of Europe we have had a couple of very hot days here in Berlin. Now it is cold again, but on those hot days all I want to do is eat light and drink lots.

In the weekend I let myself get inspired by the middle east and made quinoa taboule and hummus for lunch with a big glass of cold homemade lemononade.

From The Field To The Table

One thing I love about the summer is strawberry season. It is not necessarily my favorite berry of them all but it is for me highly connected to the sensation of summer.

Like a couple of years ago we went to Hoppengarden to pick some ourselves, and for some reason we always end up picking until the bowls are more than full. Almost three kilos we got, if you disregard the ones we ate out there. From this I made a wonderful gluten and sugar-free strawberry marzarin tart, strawberry jam and strawberry basil toppings for our Sunday pancakes.

So delicious.
