Saturday pure and simple

Posted by Claudia Moser on 7:42 PM in ,
Hm ... this Saturday was spend so far in the kitchen, in town, with friends and in the living room.

In the kitchen I was pretty inspired today, after a lovely egg liquor cake which was yesterday's highlight, I was busy with a cherry clafoutis and a spicy cajun chicken pasta.

The cherry clafoutis looked truly like this:
 Recipe from here

As for the spicy cajun chicken pasta, it is based on a surprising discovery - a wonderful food blog, called Skinny Taste. After seeing this picture:

I knew that I had to try it and boy I was not dissapointed. It is super delicious and trust me Peter was having a smile on his face during the entire meal.

In town I did a little bit of shopping plus I had a date with my husband, we are in the middle of a project, I promise I will reveal some details soon, I just don't want to jinx it, I am pretty excited, I tell you!

Then B., my good friend, came over for some coffee, cake and chit chat. Before she came I had a horrid headache which was gone by the time she went, she is so positive and I enjoy spending time with her.

And now in the living room, writing, talking with Peter, watching some sports and looking forward to read some magazines which mom send me - what a special treat!

Yes, Saturday, pure and simple!

Sounds all sorts of wonderful...and I can't wait to hear what your project is!

You certainly know how to make the most of your free time! Sounds like a perfect day in every way! My kind of day (apart from the cooking and baking). I'd be in the garden, instead :)

gosh, wish my saturday was so sweet! Grocery shopping, cleaning etc. hot dogs for dinner.

I wish you have more good days.

Sounds like an absolutely wonderful Saturday. What more could you want?! I'm really terribly impressed with your cooking skills, and no wonder Peter had a smile on his face!

Not the lazy day I'd wished for you, but more fun instead :-)

YUM! i like the green pan, claudia.. the dish looks so appealing in it...

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
