Classic Donuts

I finally got around to writing this entry on donuts, I’m behind with everything and I’d nap all day if I could, just like a cat. Spring teased us a couple of days last week, but since then it’s been snowing a bit and now it’s just soggy and foggy- yikes! From my living-room window I can see the pine tree tops in the distance and the snow melting on the balcony- remind me to go outside and hang Sam’s mouse on a hook to dry, or else it’ll be moldy by Monday!

Good morning, Saturday! πŸ˜‰ It’s been snowing for a couple of days now, big, wet flakes dancing down, I’ve watched them from the comfort of my home and felt happy that I have a place to call my own

Yesterday I felt like writing, and so I started reminiscing about that one time when my father came home with a huge suitcase and told us to pull down the blinds, before revealing its contents: green bananas! It was the communist era and we hadn’t seen bananas yet, but it was easily understood they were a black market find and consequently something to cherish. πŸ˜‰ Continue reading

Langos

Remember our trip to Budapest in the beginning of December? You don’t?! Then head over to my entry about it. Although I was in a particularly cranky mood and the lack of service got on my nerves like never before, we had some amazing food there! For our first lunch we ordered two big portions of goulash and they came with freshly baked langos. They were so good I promised myself to repeat the deed at home.

Espresso cookies 2018

How y’all doing? Nothing much here- dentist and doctor’s appointments, baking cookies and agonizing about my raging hormones and all their side effects. πŸ˜‰ Sam is with us until the 25th and we’ve been walking and walking, he’s been enjoying himself and I’ve been pretending I did, too, for his sake. Meanwhile I’ve been longing for warmer places, both while day dreaming and in my sleep. πŸ˜‰

Lunch at Sentralen

Ever since I moved away from the city centre, most weekends have been about walking Sammy, visiting friends or having people over for coffee. Thinking back I’ve probably stayed in more often than not- taking in the view, doing yoga and baking cake. And since there was no Sam to walk yesterday and we’d both been quite busy lately, I invited F out for lunch, like in the good old days. πŸ˜‰
