{this moment}

A Friday ritual.
A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

sitting and sunning

a wonderful spring afternoon out sitting under a little tree, while thea is playing soccer with her friend and a big group of 6 year olds...
naomi decided to come along and keep me company. i really appreciated this and we got to chat and laugh and play and totally enjoy the lovely afternoon. snacking some apples and chocolate bars, water and juice. my plan fell through, i wanted to read but we kept talking, and so i doodled away on a blank page of wonderful paper...

sitting and sunning my feet! that's really what i have been doing all afternoon. after a 10k morning run and a longish bike ride with joel yesterday afternoon, this is really what i appreciated. meanwhile three loads of laundry dried on the fresh spring air...

the good food

there has been lots of good food on our dinner table lately. it's spring and new greens are plenty to be served in salads and soups and appetizers for hungry kids as well as grown ups...
the first picture shows a recipe from gale gand's  brunch book, just wonderful and super easy to do. everyone liked those eggs and we had it for a quick lunch with rice and a tossed salad.

the second picture is sundays lunch. the boys cooked pasta as well as grilled the meat over the fire in our backyard. lots of fun. i added a tossed salad with radishes to it. o yes and amos also cooked a tomato sauce (that one on the stove top). it was lots of excitement to make a fire and then use it.

well the third one shows the ingredients for our salmon soup. dry vermouth, lemon zest and juice, half and half, pepper, cut fresh basil, salt and fresh salmon. wonderful, very tasty and super quick to prepare. this one is from the "suppen kochbuch"
