work is crazy right now
food is the only thing keeping me sane
it always is
because i´m afraid i´m loosing it every time i get hungry
driving my bike becomes dangerous, things slipping from my hands, oh so grumpy mood...
.
so thank you dear blog world for a few new soothing additions to my repertoire:
Fräulein Texts SWEET POTATOE CHIPS 
(do not let them get brown or you´ll end up like me nibbling the good orange stuff from brown burnt rims)
Heidi Swansons RHUBARB ROSEWATER SIRUP makes an awesome granita (as do those little green melons)
also i´m drying rose petals for her ROSE PETAL GRANOLA
.
yesterday i got sentimental and made focaccia with grapes
 made it with my roommate a lot while studying
we tried every variation Jamie Oliver suggested
our favorites were tiny tomatoes + mozzarella and cherries, brown sugar + butter 
or stuffed with rocket, onions, gorgonzola, parmesan + herbs
yeast is not that good for my stomach but i just had to eat some
.
any comforting food suggestions?
.
TINY BOUQUET #10 BROKEN JAR
very disappointing leaking little pretty doll house jar
full of roadside weeds
the best kind

  1. yesterday i watched that video with jamie,!
    and the one where they sit in the forest
    making mushroom sandwich, he is so good,

    i don`t know why but these days
    we enjoy wild rice with chuka salad
    seems like summer food, the way it looks
    and tastes
