Forcing myself to love Winter

Despite being here for six Winters, I find that the period June to August is always so difficult for me to deal. So this year, I decided to compile a list of things that I like about Winter. Don’t worry, it’s extremely short.

  1. Soup for dinner, YUM Smile
  2. Scarves as a vital fashion accessory. I have many beautiful scarves so I am good.
  3. Having a ready excuse to avoid going out in order to stay indoors and stay cosy.
  4. Not having to shave my legs.
  5. Shorter days. In the morning, I definitely enjoy getting up when it’s dark outdoors; reminds me of growing up in Nairobi.

Do you love anything about Winter?

Some recipes for the winter and the weekend

For some reason, this week, I have been drooling at so many recipes and wanting to get into the kitchen and whip all of them up. Must be the colder mornings and evenings because Winter is slowly creeping up on us. Please enjoy and do drop me a line or a picture if you do try any of them out.

Microwave Chocolate Mug cakes (for two)

My favourite lunch menu has pesto, pasta, black olives, green beans and feta. Available here. I wanna replicate it and now I can as I know how to make pesto 🙂

Peanut butter and jelly smoothie

Strawberry and Coconut ice cream

Buttermilk Pana cotta with passion fruit curd

Because Sweet potatoes,right?

10 Citrus deserts, just in time for the lemon tree in my compound.

While I don’t particularly like eggs, I can have the occasional poached egg.

Yum! Off to cook!
