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.

A French version is available here.

I’m back from a three weeks professional trip in North-East and South of France. And as usual, I had to forget something: this time it’s my camera. Well, it’s not lost so everything is okay, I’ll have it back in two weeks I believe.
Each time I come back from a trip it’s a real fuss to have me back on tracks cooking for the forthcoming days. First, I have to quickly go shopping for fresh vegs and fruits. Then, I have to urge preparing some beans, and some cereals or soup to be able to plan my week menus. But, as you can guess the evening I arrive there’s few possibility to go shopping, and this is how I came up with chestnut milk or soya milk made out of flour. And I realised that with a few drops of nut oil I could find this little greasy taste you have with milk. More over it prevents the milk from separating into a floury and watery part. Still you need to stir the milk before serving but less than before.
For the fruits, I had packed them in my suitcase as I cannot imagine a breakfast without them. I don’t know if you have access to rice flakes but if you do, this recipe of rice pudding takes less than 5 minutes. So don’t tell you don’t have time. Even my water takes longer to boil (I’m joking…)
