I've been in love with the idea... of doing more and more stuff at home, in what food is concerned! My ultimate goal is to produce my own vegetables, fruits, eggs and milk! For that i do need, as you all know, to sell this house and move into a much bigger space - but that's another story!!!!
Meanwhile... i've been doing more and more!!! I usually tell my friends (jocking, but not so much!!), that one of these days i'll go to the supermarket and will bring only raw materials!!!! It's impossible not to fall in love with this idea!!!; and in a time, when everybody is buying Nespressos , because it's cleaner, easier, more modern or because of Cloney (HI! HI!); i'm moving back!!!! I hate the idea of having it all in a single extremely clean machine!!! I love the softness of the fresh crashed coffee beans (and yes!; i also do that!!!); the texture of the coffee powder and the whole process of making a coffee traditional way!!! OHH!!! the smell of the whole thing!!!
OH! GOD! I suddendly realized!!!::: :( are those signs of old age?!?!?! Ups!
Who cares?! So what?!?! Here are some of the things i've been doing more and more often at home: cookies - i never buy them at the smarket for about 4/5 years now; and to be honest, nobody wants the smarket ones at home!!!! ; We have a winner!!!;
bread - never buy it too for about 5 years too; besides cooking it at home allows me to eat bread from all over the world instead of having always the same tastes on the table! ; another winner!!!;
and now the newest ones:
yogurt and butter!!!
Made at home they turn into gourmet delicatesses! I love the versatility of the process! I can make them any taste any kind any looks!!! Isn't that great?! On the photos you can see yogurt with pineapple jam (homemade obviously!); and fresh butter with chives. The taste?! - speecheless!! and the best of all! sooooo easy to do!
Today i'll try something new to me! I already knew this thing for thousands of years, but it's extremely rare to find it in Portugal! Curious?! I'll show it on my next post!
Have a gorgeous day!
