I woke up today too early, Léonie was sitting on the bedroom window, scrathing the glass. I got little bit annoyed and couldn't sleep anymore, so I got up. Coffee, reading some blogs and getting ready for the day. I'm working at the office only twice a week, so I wasn't in a hurry to work.
At 9.30am, I got dressed up to go out and headed to the other side of the city. The mistral was gone, so it was just nice calm weather to walk to the Police du Domaine to get a macaron for the car. Not a macaron you can eat, a yearly parking pass so we can park the car anywhere inside the walls of Avignon.
After I went to Le Halles for get some vegetables, rye flour and brasilian nuts.
I also visited CycloPanier(local and bio products) near us as they had rutabagas.
I am planning to make some christmas food again, kind of addicted to Finland and finnish things lately.. Home sick a little bit.
Léonie was all over the bags, not sure if she was more interested of the veggies or the paper/plastic bags.
She loves crawling into a plastic bag. And ripping it to pieces.
Sweet potatoes, rutabagas, carrots and beetroots.
And colorful hands after cutting the beetroot.
Mix some of your favourite veggies, cut these into cubes
add good olive oil, honey and spices (sea salt,pepper,herb de provence,garlic,onion)
Cook in the oven for at least 50mins / 175degrees
I made quickly some ground beef steacks with a creamy sauce (super delicious!)
half cube of chicken broth
I made the garlic sizzle in the olive oil before adding the rest of the ingrediences.
Super easy and good. Can add HP sauce (we didn't have) and other spices too.
Between the cooking, I made rye bread dough and after lunch it was time to bake some bread.
Easy and good!
I love everything that smells good.
I cannot resist good candles, perfumes and sprays.
Last weekend we went to a new shopping center and I bought Durance Vanilla ambiance perfume.
What can I say, delicious..
And I am kind of addicted to girly stuff like make ups, creams and stuff.
So when I saw lately this BB cream in TV,
also in Kalastajanvaimo's blog (she is a Finnish woman living in Norway, and I adore her style)
I needed to get the cream.
And as it's winter time, my hair is flying everywhere, all electric. And itchy skin.. It means only one thing:
it needs some moisture!
So I got this Nuxe's oil what can use from head to toes, literally. It can be used to tame the flying hair, or too dry feets. And it smells so good! A big plus for the good smell.
Now it's time to relax and cook the dinner.
