Bakoula, feta and pine nuts hand pies

Bakoula, feta and pine nuts hand pies

We’ve had two to three good consecutive weeks of very nice weather and it finally feels like summer in London. I have to admit that some days were very briefly interrupted by a few hours of rain but nothing that lasted too long to bother us. I am so excited about this summer! We’ve planned a few trips and I am going to spend quite a lot of time in Morocco. I really miss those school days when my mom and I would spend two months in Morocco every year. By the end of the summer I was so sad to go back to Brussels, every single time! This year between travelling and work, I will be spending about three weeks in Rabat and Marrakech in July and August. I haven't spent that much time in Morocco in the summertime for years, so it’s safe to say that I am beyond excited.

I feel like I should say something along the lines of “happy almost spring” but it feels wrong because it’s freezing and it’s been snowing for the past two days. Oh well! The good part is, I did notice some beautifully blossoming trees in the streets of London these past weeks, so everything is not lost friends. I have even managed to put my hands on some Narcissus, which by the way I don’t think are particularly pretty but I have to admit that they do smell nice (and we do share the same name)!

What’s a Buddha bowl? Because I have been seeing many of them on the Internet these past 2 years and I still can’t figure out what it essentially is. I got the basic concept behind it: compartmenting your salad but then, is that it? Is there no other requirement to achieve a Buddha bowl? I really want to know.

Happy Friday and happy first day of the last month of the year! Can you believe it’s already December? How do you feel about 2018? I have a good feeling about it, but it’s probably because I have this weird habit of thinking that years which end with even numbers will always be better… So let’s see how 2018 turns out. Rendez-vous next year!
