There is a sweltering heat hanging over Germany since several weeks now. After one of the longest and coldest winters I can remember, this already feels like one of the longest hot stretches in my life.
Not that I am complaining, mind you. Actually, I feel great in this weather, and I can sleep like a little river pebble at night.
Only thing is - I can hardly eat anything. There's so many nice things to cook, but hardly anything is worth writing about.
Grilled goat cheese and fresh tomatoes on bread - who needs a recipe for that?
One day, we tried a lemon cream. It turned out okayish, but really not anything I could brag with.
Of course, I've been baking bread. Lots of it, each weekend. But that's really old news to you, is it?
As I've already mentioned, we slice and freeze the bread for convenient use over the following week, and I thought, that's one picture I haven't uploaded yet. So, here's lots of sliced bread ready for freezing.
But already, our annual summer party is looming at the horizon, with the whole family planning what's to eat and how to organize things. It'll be a comparatively small affair this year, only 40 people or so, but one we're genuinely looking forward to.
And, most importantly, it'll bring a whole lotta new cooking experiments to this site.
