2014 is close to its end and, at least for me, it was a strange year filled with many changes. I switched jobs, again, I cut my hair and dyed it red, I met some amazing and some not that great people, I traveled more than last year, I watched and helped my parents develop their restaurant and I learned a lot. There were some sad moments this year, some scary even, but I think I came out of them stronger. I’m grateful that I have my loved ones beside me and that I can pour my thoughts here on this blog. I’m also grateful that there are so many people interested in my thoughts 🙂 But if I have to put my finger on the best thing of 2014, it has to be the not-so-little-anymore white ball of love that is Churchill. And, respectively, I decided it’s best if I use him to wish a Happy New Year!
Yesterday I was watching Fine living and there was this super easy and delicious looking frittata recipe that I couldn’t way to try. It was with asparagus and cheese but I changed it to my taste.
Here is the recipe:
Preheat the olive oil in a large pan and add the onion. In the meantime crack the eggs in a large bowl, add the cheese and the milk and season with salt and pepper. Whisk until you get a homogeneous mixture and pour it in the pan. After 2-3 minutes add the tomatoes and wait till you see the eggs bubbling at the edges of the pan. Remove from the stove and insert in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes and you’re ready. I threw in a toast and banana and it made the perfect Sunday breakfast.
- 6 eggs
- 50 gr yellow cheese
- 50 gr Parmesan
- olive oil
- 1/4 red onion
- 250 gr cherry tomatoes
I’m a big fan of pin-up girls (here and here) and I’ve drawn this one a few months ago. It was staying in a cupboard with just a few things left so I can share it but I just didn’t feel the right kind of inspiration to finish it. Not until yesterday. So I hope you like her as I plan of making more pin-up girls:)
I have this thing with zoos. If there is a zoo in the city I’m visiting, I always go. I’ve been to all the zoos in Bulgaria, I even worked next to the one in Sofia and had my lunch breaks there. So, naturally, we had to go the one in Berlin. Even though I was coming down with the flu the penguins were waiting for me 🙂
I’ve been MIA for the past week but it wasn’t because I didn’t have anything to share but because me and Martin went on a little German escapade before the holidays. We were in Berlin for approximately 5 days and although we both came down with the flu we had a great time. What I have to say for the city is that I don’t think it’s for everyone. It’s not your typical big capitol like London, Rome or Paris, filled with sights and tourists. Berlin has a more urban charm that suited us well and made the trip worthwhile. So this week I’ll try to share this charm with you.
