It’s never too cold for ice cream.

I got to spend a couple of days with my boyfriend this week (YAAAY!) and we had a fantastic time. Of course Ethiopian food was on the list (at least according to me πŸ˜‰ ), but we also tried out a GelateriaΒ which I had spotted a little while ago with the most amazing looking artisan ice cream. Aren’t those tiny cones cute? πŸ™‚

You can even bring your own fruit and they will make ice cream or sorbet out of it within a day. They offer dairy-free/vegan ice cream too, so I got to try a delicious dark chocolate creation:

On another day we took a tour of Bundeshaus (Federal Palace of Switzerland) which was pretty impressive.

There is a huge painting in the National Council which is breathtaking and also the glass artwork in the Dome is amazing:

Luckily the sun decided to make an appearance as well and it almost felt like spring. Sometimes one should just be able to press a button to stop time from passing by. πŸ™‚

Home is…

…where the pumpkins are. Or at least that’s what it was like last weekend. πŸ˜‰

I went home for two days and got to take a little trip to a close by farm. They had set up a really adorable exhibition, with pumpkins in all shapes and colors.

The weather wasn’t exactly sunny, but that didn’t stop the gorgeous sunflowers from shining at their brightest. πŸ™‚

And can you guess the magical concoction on the picture below? It’s freshly pressed apple juice from the farm, or”fall in a glass” to me. Not comparable to the stuff you can buy at the supermarket. πŸ™‚

My schedule is pretty busy nowadays, so dinner has to be made quickly. Thank god for microwavable wheat berry pouches! They add a a lovely chewy texture to a plate of Mediterranean vegetables and make it a complete meal.

Another dish I eat quite often lately: Oven baked potato wedges with curry and a big dollop of hummus. Sometimes I add sauerkraut, because I love the refreshing flavor and texture and it offers lots of health benefits. Is there anyone else who enjoys eating sauerkraut without being forced to do so? πŸ™‚
