So I got “birthday voucher” from my brother “in law” (I’m not married”) because he goes to Sicily and wants to bring me something as he knows my love for Italy so I was browsing what it could be and came across this amazing blog, even if it didn’t help me a bit I wish to go there myself.

    Italy was always my dream destination, I dreamt of going there since I was a kid and 2 years ago I did go, and OMG, this country is LOVE! Honestly, fell in love with it harder than before, the streets, the alleys, the people, the FOOD, just wonderful!
    My new dream now is getting myself a little house on the islands of Lake Maggiore 😂💔

      It’s so easy to fell under its spell!!! I love their bakeries and markets and the sens of fashion. When I was eighteen I was traveling little bit with my sister by train there (sleeping in a train and waking up in different location 🙃 ) and while in Firenze we were passing the shops with shoes and we were so bewildered. I’ve never seen so well done and amazing shoes alive. It’s pity that my italian friends have to work out of the country to have decent life though.

        Yes, the shoes and bags and watches! What I love about it the most is that every city has a different thing to offer, just so beautiful.

        Yes, sadly, that is true!

    Are those wild mushrooms?! They look planted on thick wooden stems 🤔

      It’s called “parasol mushroom”. It’s very tasty just panfried on butter and the stem is normally dried and made into powder to be used as spices. When they appear it’s sure there’re mushrooms. Mushrooms are very important source of vitamin D.

Today instead of b-cake I bought myself grapes. I’m sure that they’re full of chemicals (the most treated fruit together with apples) but let’s make myself some pleasure other than k-drama related 😊

      Nope, I could compare it to one situation in my life. Eight years ago when we moved to a house of our friends grandma for few months, because we were working on ours, I found out by being bitten by night that we have cat flees in our bedroom. So I hate chemical treatment so the best thing is to vaccum everything. But those little creatures didn’t disappear and I was going to get crazy so I bought the antifleese – antithick collar for cats and put it on my wrist. I was wearing it for few hours, I’ve thought ” cats are smaller and finer creatures as human are, so it could work”. I feel sorry for any dog or cat who is wearing it! All the time I drank some water or ate I could feel the product. It impregnated my skin, I started to get crazy because of that thing!!! I use now vinegar and eucalyptus or lavender aspic essential oils for treating my dog. So finally getting to the point, I think it’s like this with grapes. The chemical treatment is, thanks to the rain, going to soil, which is heavily poisoned and it takes years to get it to better shape. That’s why it’s included in fruit itself because animal and vegetal kingdom is very similar to the fluid distribution – blood circulation versus sap circulation.

what\’s your favourite sweet treat?

    I have a huge sweet tooth so hard to narrow down, but I do love ice cream.

    And cookies and milk will always be a good comfort fix.

      I’m like you, Beverly. Too much of a sweet tooth to be able to pin down one thing!

      If I had to choose, maybe ice cream (Baskin Robbins has a great pumpkin cheesecake seasonal flavour which I’ve been devouring lately) or maybe donuts?

      Interestingly, I don’t eat cookies except when you put them in ice cream!

      I’m sugar addict as well.😂 It’s hard for me to resist and I love to explore new desserts and sweets. Recently I bought cotton candy machine to make my son happy time to time and it works! But it’s the best eating it on festivals and farmers market, nothing will beat.

      But last time I bought for visitors organic hazelnut spread and I was craving for something sweet so I finished to open it and of course I don’t find it enough “juicy” so I added some homemade raspberry jam and that was it!

      Cakes… I can sell my soul for cakes. Cakes with simple flavors and minimal frosting/fondant cause when it starts to get complicated, IT’S NO LONGER CAKE!!! I want to taste the cake not frostings or fillings – JUST THE CAKE!
      Sorry for yelling. I’m pretty passionate about cake.

      I look forward to my birthday for just one reason – to buy a whole cake for myself and eat it by myself with a justifiable reason. Last year, I bought a cake for my brother’s birthday. He doesn’t live with me…👀… not even in the same continent but I bought it and ate it for him in celebration. I’ve grown to be a person that deals with the shame of sheer gluttony with pride. When there’s cake, there’s a way!

      The first 2 years in France were tasting years for me. Especially the second one when I started to talk in french as well. Going to these boulangeries where there’re on display so many goodies to try. I didn’t like all of them, but “tarte of fraise” or “framboise” and “kouign aman” are my favourites. Later I started to make them and I love homemade “Tarte citron” from real organic lemons and “tarte tatin”.

      But every country has their delicious desserts and I love Pavlova soooo much and carrot cake. Oh, there’s so much to love!!!

    Is it in the basket in the second picture? I like mushrooms, but I dont think I’m brave enough to forage for them.

      In the middle of the last one 😂 I went to pick up mushrooms with my dad when I was very little so I pick only those ones I know well but sometimes (different countries I lived in) I tend to add some to my repertoire. I hated them to eat until recently. We dry them, it’s a lot of work but I found out they stock themselves with vitamin D while being sun-dried and that’s why during winter they’re the best source of it.

        Pointed out I can see it so clearly. I didn’t know that about mushrooms, more reason to eat them this fall and winter.
        I’m not sure of it is as lucrative now but there were some very serious foragers for a certain type every fall where I live to sell to overseas buyers.

        1
        1

          There’re countries which love certain types of mushroom. It could be lucrative though. It’s like the snail business in France. They don’t have enough snails anymore so they exploit now Czech Republic for that.

          I find today’s idea of everything must be accessible to everyone very destructive for nature. While growing up I’ve never dreamed of eating lots of different kind of fish or seafood. I’ve never desired to try it either neather savage animals. It’s still heartbreaking to see all the not sold fresh food getting wasted.

Looking forward to seeing this one. Although I would have nightmares for a while, but it’s like The Guardian reporter said “I can state without hesitation that this is a monumental piece of work and one I’m deeply glad to have seen. I can also say that I hope to never cross its path again.”

      I hate horror movies but this one is so close to reality that it will be hard to watch. But I have to be in perfect moral condition to not to fell under its influence. I wonder about that “slavic esperanto” how it will sound like, because the director used lots of different actors from different countries, maybe I won’t need subtitles. I used to dream about war very lively dreams and waking up crying although I didn’t experienced one and I don’t want to neither so.

      They’re the smallest alpine type mountains in the world with all those wild animals around. Bears were and still are in some places regularly trying to feed themselves from bins that’s why they’re locked mostly. Maybe they could make a feeding spot especially in autumn when they need to put on weight for hybernation because the amount of tourists increased and the amount of buildings as well. Less space = less food.

      I was imagining Lyra differently and more younger and little. Her mother is my beloved Jane Eyre from BBC’s series.

        I love the mom too. You’re right, Lyra should be younger especially if they are planning to make 3 seasons.

        I hope this series is better than the 2007 film.

          3 seasons = 3 books make sense

          I imagined also the world of Lyra darker medieval style like. I’m curious how they’ll make the hell and heaven part. I think studio Gbilisi would make it great.

      The movie was typical american like so there was plenty of missing and so far in that trailer it looks much better.

        You can’t put everything from a book in a movie. That is why I don’t like many movie adaptions of books. There’s always plenty missing. Series are much better.

          Yeah, I know. But there was lot of character change. The book is spooky in many ways, I love it soooo much and it’s like Lord of the Rings – Philip Pullman takes sources from legends, religions, fairy tales mixing it with recent events, global warming, migration and creating his own imaginary world with great story behind. It’s so complex and beautiful.
