After a rather difficult week it was nice to give room for thoughts and enjoy the weekend. We were lucky to have a beautiful weather so I spent some time outdoors too. On Saturday I had a little picnic with H. Nice sandwiches, coffee and sweet cherries tasted good.
From our backyard I found a big bunch of nettles. Nettle (Urtica dioica) is often considered a weed but did you know it's full of vitamin C and iron? They only need to be boiled or steamed for a little. I added some salt, white pepper and cream. The nettle stew was served along fried perch, boiled potatoes, green salad and dry white wine. Simple but delicious!
Pretty Cowslips (Primula veris) are blooming under the apple trees in our garden. They are among the first spring flowers over here. I did cut just a few and placed them in a glass. For some reason the kitten likes to drink her water out of this glass, I have re-filled it a couple of times yesterday and today. Even though the glass is high she hasn't knocked it down. A handsome young lady.
I just adore her ability to ignore the outside world. She sleeps so contently without fears or doubts of any kind. I do wish I could do the same. How much simpler the life could be that way!
Hopefully you had an enjoyable weekend too. I wish a good new week to all of you!
