-Chicory beverage

Okay banana isn’t local, but from time to time I like to have some. Here I mixed it with some chocolate mousse to please my greedy sweet tooth of mine. As it wasn’t enough (I’m really greedy) I hopped to my cupboard and went to fetch a little treasure: our homemade rose hip jam. Did you ever do some? It starts with a walk on the hills to pick up the fruits, then it continues with two nights of cooking! But it’s worth it. Just taste it on a slice of brioche…

P.S.: Mum, here’s the chocolate mousse I was talking about the other day.

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?

It’s snowing here. And mamapasta was saying that it would not snow here. Good gosh, I love snow. I love to dress up to brave the wintry cold. But I seem to be the only one down here…And maybe I’m the only one who has her boiler out of order…for five days now…
So, to tease you (and myself) I’ll show you one of my sunday meals when I had no oven, and when sun was still shinning bright, clear and hot. And sundays are usually the days when I try to make a special meal. So what can we do without an oven? I thought nowt…finally it isn’t as bad as I thought!

Pea and mint purée in Duchesse

I really don’t have much time, it’s too bad. I will need to reorganise things so that I have a little more time for anything else which isn’t work. Well, here is a leftover bento with not much new in it. Except maybe that it is the first that I show this bento. I’m not really fond of it, to say true, it leeks, it’s not even airtight and I don’t really manage to play much with it. It looked pretty on the net, and once more I listened to the mermaids’ consumer song. I’m not really proud of myself.

Tea time treat
Vegan chocolate rice pie
Iced tea
-Orange juice
-Squashed banana with a pinch of cinnamon

Lately I’m a little overwhelmed, so I’m a little away from the net and this blog. I’m really sorry, will you forgive me? Though I was really busy, I did find time for a little winter vegan treat: chocolate rice pie. A real pleasure that rarely lasts long here, though Bear hasn’t really a sweet tooth, he can’t resist to eat one more serving.

Courgette treat

Monday isn’t my favourite day. Going back to work with a cold, being so tired and knowing that I’m late in my work, that I should have worked the week-end too, that I’ll need to hurry…I’m so happy I took time to prepare this little bento Sunday to warm my heart up with good homemade food. And this bento has a new item which is truly great eaten cold also: courgette slices seasoned with soya sauce, rice vinegar and to which I tossed in some homemade furitake. Tomorrow will be easier, it’s Tuesday.

Courgette cupcakes, banana-coco vegan cupcake

-Mandarin slices
-Kiwi slices
-Carrot salad
Vegan tsatsiki
Japanese style vinaigrette

I just can’t read. I mean at least a recipe! I was catching up some recipes in Julie’s blog when I fell on this cupcake recipe with Tastsiki. The recipe seemed tempting and the idea of having it for a bento was just great. So here I go straight to the shop to get what I was missing in my fridge. I don’t know how in my twisted mind I thought I needed courgette to do her cupcakes. Please don’t ask. I felt so stupid back home in front of my computer, ready to try her recipe…and seeing that my memories of the ingredients were really fantaisist! And I had promised Bear some fantastic courgette cupcakes…So this is how I ended up with some courgette cupcakes with Tsatsiki. A good bento item, it was a real joy to gobble up my lunch today! And, because I really bought too much courgette I did some sweet courgette cupcakes for desert. Can you see any difference between the two?
The other bento has banana-coco flavoured cupcakes.
