Breakfast when Bear is far away working: fruit salad and granola

I’m craving for summer and its wonderful fruits. So I’ll go back in time and share with you a meal and some memories.

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Breakfast
Fruity salad (watermelon, melon, apple, pear, tomato, carrot, mirabelle) with orange sweet sauce
Homemade granola

Bear is away working. My little eyes are puffy and tired as I’m not really disciplined in going early to bed when he’s away. I therefore needed a little cheering up breakfast full of vitamins. A little fruity salad topped with homemade granola with a orange caramel sauce.
A real treat!

Back from the market: apple chestnut bread

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Snack
Apple and chestnut bread with cheese spread
-Spring sprouts
-Fresh veggies: raw cauliflower, raw carrots, apples
-A glass of lemonade

We like to wander in the market on Saturday mornings under the pale sun of spring. Usually when we come back home with our bags full, we like to take a moment to sit and enjoy to eat some fresh vegetables with fresh homemade bread. For a change I went for a chestnut and apple flavoured bread.

Porridge for wintery days

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Breakfast
Apple and cinnamon flavoured porridge
-Hot beverage made from soya milk and chocolate

Winter, grey and cold days, icy wind and snowy mountains. What can one dream of on such days? The little ogre in me longs for a basic savoury and fulfilling porridge. Here it’s the apple and cinnamon version. But I can also go for any other variation with cranberries, sultanas, bananas, pear or even chocolate.

Olive and tomato cake

Bento (Bear’s)
Olive and tomato cake
-Tup of mayonnaise
-Two steamed onigris stuffed with spread cream and sprouts (nori)
-Lentils sprouts
-Carrot sliced
-Mushroom sliced
-Quarter of apple

I don’t now how many photos I tried to take of my Mamie’s olive and tomato cake (my French Granny). So this is my last shot, it’s not good and doesn’t seems as yummy as it should. But I’m fed up of trying, I did everything I could possibly think of. So here you are with Bear’s favourite salty cake. With some little items to highlight it.

Apple and chocolate tart

Tea treat
Banana juice (homemade)
Apple and chocolate tart

Just a little post which will testify of my greediness. This week-end I’ll be enjoying a simple apple and chocolate pie with a pinch of cinnamon to forget winter. Time to share?

Express pasta meal

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Meaty tofu and gluten balls
Tomato sauce
-Pasta
Apple crumble

Some evenings are a little bit more busier than others. For these evenings I have some meat alike balls in the freezer that I can quickly accommodate with tomato sauce and pasta. It is one of my favourite express meals. What are your favourite express meals?

Apple crumble pie and chinese spinach soup

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Chinese spinach and tofu soup
-Steamed Jerusalem artichokes
-Steamed carrots
Sauercraut with mushrooms
Apple crumble pie

I quickly pop in to show you a quickly baked tart. As things go so quickly, I’m not really creative in my kitchen so I stick to the basics. Bear took care of the sauercraut while I took care of the pie, the soup and my mummie’s home grown vegetables. I’m just trying to do quick and tasty meals that would make me happy to be alive and leave me time to share some quality time with Bear. I hope that you can find some ways to share at least half an hour a day with your loved ones.
