Personal Month overview April
"I baked pancakes with apple, boiled an egg and with a lovely coffee and the Happinez my relaxed Sunday Morning was there."
Month Overview in April, the month started off with Easter. We didn't really celebrate it and had nice relaxed days, or I had because Jens had to work haha. After Easter I had some extra days off and went to the barber. My hair was over my shoulders and I was tired of it, so I just wanted the tips off. The night before I went, I suddenly decided that I didn't want the same as every time so I went looking for a different haircut. I found a short one which I liked very much and I didn't tell Jens about it, so he was in shock when he came home. I am still very happy with it by the way.
The weekend after that my parents came for dinner on Saturday. My sister was also supposed to be there, but she was ill. We had a very nice evening and I just love to catch up with them. I see them not enough as I want to, but everybody is so busy that is usually what happens. Because I made dinner form them and they came to our place, my mum bought me the magazine 'Happinez' and it really is my favorite. Somehow it also makes me a bit tired when I am with my parents or when they are at my place. You don't see each other that often so you just want to tell each other so much and you are focused on each other and of course I wanted them to like the dinner I made. So I was a bit tired on Sunday haha, that has probably to do with HSP I guess. So that Happinez was a blessing. I baked pancakes with apple, boiled an egg and with a lovely coffee and the Happinez my relaxed Sunday Morning was there.
At night I thought it would be a good idea to raclette. So I had bought some vegetarian raclette plates and I was excited. Jens turned out to be less excited after an afternoon of playing soccer and was mostly excited to lay on the couch and relax. So sitting at the table for quite some time and have some quality time with food was not what he wanted at that moment haha. So we decided to put all the food in the oven and make some sweet potato fries with it. If you see it in the bowl it just looks like the Dutch 'bittergarnituur' some kind of appetizers. It was not that tasty honestly, they all tasted kind of the same, too bad. Next time I will again make them myself.
I did have a good day that Sunday, because at Sunday evening I already made my lunch for Monday. These egg muffins with bell pepper, cheese and mushrooms were the best. Too bad I forgot to grease the muffin mold, so they were very difficult to get out of the mold.
Oh and how good was the weather! I was so happy that one week that we got to touch the 20 degrees Celsius (68 Fahrenheit) and above. I bought new shoes straight away which I tried at home and after work I went to sit in the garden with a book and I enjoyed it so much!
And it the weather was also perfect to wear dresses and I just love it. You notice how happy it makes me and the best thing is yet to come. That one day that it was 25 degrees Celsius (77 Fahrenheit) and I got to take the afternoon off and Jens also had a day off really was the best. In the afternoon we left to the beach with the dog, which enjoyed her time very much. We had a lot of fun in the water with the three of us and had a great afternoon. And we ended the day even better with a nice beer, good food at a cafe terrace. Which was by the way the first time with Leyla on a cafe terrace, but she did a pretty good job.
It really was a perfect day and I hope many of these will follow! And it also was the perfect preparation for our holiday in Spain which we booked. A little more than 4 weeks and we will be in Spain. And after the deception of last year in the tent, we decided to rent a house and find an environment with more activity. So I am really sure we will be having fun those 10 days. And look at that view, I can only enjoy that view for 10 days already.
That vacation is definitely something to look forward to and I also gave myself a gift, a new blender/food processor. I had a Smeg blender for 1,5 years because it looked so beautiful. But since day 1 I was just not happy with it, it didn't work very good, I had to add a lot of water before it even wanted to start blending and it made a sound like a plain was taking off. Now the jar is leaking a bit at the bottom and everything became a mess it was definitely time for a new one. And Philips had a combined blender, food processor, lemon juicer which seemed perfect to me, because I also didn't have a food processor yet. That blender from Smeg had cost me 225 euros and this combination only 85 euros. But I just love this one since the first day and this is not sponsored at all. The food processor just mixes everything perfectly and it saves me so much time. I just really love this one, I wish I had bought it earlier.
So at Sunday morning I surprised Jens with a breakfast with fresh orange juice haha.
At night I made the batter for our favorite burgers, the broccoli burgers, also in the food processor. Usually I put the broccoli in the blender and mix the rest of the ingredients by hand. But now I put all ingredients together in the food processor and it really became a firm batter. I baked the burgers, usually Jens does that, but I have to say I am quite proud of the result.
They look gorgeous right?! All by all it was a really nice month for me. I am extremely happy that the Summer is nearby and we already enjoyed the great weather. If the sun is shining I am happy. I hope you liked to read the month overview and I wish you a nice weekend.
