THE VIEW



This has basically been my view all week long. A cup of coffee and the notebook to note down my research. Not bad, not bad.

BEETROOT LASAGNA




I saw this recipe a while back and wrote it down (I can't remember where it was from but if you do please let me know so I can link back). Last night I finally got around to making it; beetroot lasagna. I promise, it tastes a lot better than it sounds. It's very easy. This makes enough for four to six people.

1 kg beetroot, cleaned and grated
4 carrots, peeled and grated
8 garlic cloves, grated or finely chopped
2 tsp chili, chopped - or to your taste
1 red onion, chopped
1 can (400ml) crushed tomatoes
coriander
cottage cheese
lasagna sheets
grated cheese to go on top

Mix everything together on a pan, but leave out the cottage cheese, lasagna sheets and grated cheese. Once heated and blended well together on the pan start layering in a large baking dish - beetroot mixture, lasagna sheets, cottage cheese and finish off with grated cheese on top. Bake in a 200°C oven for about 15-20 minutes. I served mine with freshly made spinach and coriander pesto - so delicious!

Bon appétit!

FERM LIVING SS15



I'm sure we've all been drooling and dreaming over the new SS15 collection from Ferm Living. They are bringing their A-game this season, I feel. My favorite thing though is the wall rug seen above. I love that the wall rugs are coming back - they can bring so much texture and versatility into the space without being too much, you know? I recon I just might pick one up.

What is your favorite piece?

THE BIRTHDAY EDIT



My sons fourth birthday is coming up next Saturday and we are having a celebration to his honor. I always get so excited about his birthday parties and start making plans months in advance - remember the Lego decorations from two years ago?  This year it'll be yellow - his wishes for a party theme - and white. I'm thinking garland, balloons hanging from the ceiling and something along those lines. I really liked what Jennifer from AMM did for her daughters first birthday, very clean and simple yet festive and fun.

While we are on the subject of birthdays mine is also coming up soon and my boyfriend and I are packing our bags and hoppin' over to Copenhagen for a little weekend getaway. If you have any recommendations for what to see, do, eat let me know - I'd love to hear from you!

SINCE YESTERDAY



Here's one since yesterday that appeared on my instagram from when I was on my way to the bus stop heading to school. The air was crisp and the snow cracked underneath my shoes. It was a beautiful day. The afternoon was spent at the pup with beer and nachos with the classmates. It was lovely. What did you do?

RECENTS




So far, this year, the blog has been quiet. I know. But there is a reason for that! It's all very new and exciting. I just can't tell you about it - yet - so stay tuned my loves.

But my pinterest has not been as quiet. It's booming with pictures like these above. Check it out - here.
