Cocktail of the day – Berries Kiss

Inspired by beautiful berries and attached to our sparkling wine (Cava for the Spanish friends, Prosecco for our italians peeps or Sekt for the the Germans buddies), here is the first cocktail of the year.

Introduction – De la mi-avril jusqu’à fin juin, difficile d’échapper à la douce folie des asperges en Allemagne.

When one becomes two – Giving a kick to left overs

Remember last night macaroni al pesto? You take almost the same ingredients and revamp them for a fresh tasty salad for lunch, the following day. Elle n’est pas belle la vie, hein?

Facile, facile…

Spring macaroni salad alla Razzie

Macaroni + dried tomatoes+ garlic/herbes de Provence olives + fresh feta cheese (sheep)+ spinach (had them too in the fridge)+ pesto as a dressing.

I have added up a few drops of balsamic vinegar+ salt. Et voilà, ready to be served.

Not that I am bored but I need to go packing. I am off to keep on eating in Italy…. Yallah 🙂

Tanti carissimi auguri di buona Pasqua 🙂 Ciao ciao

Baci 🙂
