We spent the weekend on the countryside and visited some lakes. Good times we had!
It´s been 2 weeks already since my aunt visited for the weekend. We planned to attend the “Zitrustage” in Schönbrunn, an annual exhibition of citrus plants and fruits with some of them going back to the times when the emperors still ruled this country. The main reason i wanted to go there was the tasting of several rare varieties of citrus you normally don´t really get in your usual supermarket by Katharina Seiser who knows her stuff pretty well.
The weather was cold and shitty so we got there early because hanging out outside was not really an option. But we were lucky to catch a guided tour of the gardens and greenhouses you normally don´t have access to. Below i show you a bit of the stuff we saw. Follow me my little Dr.Greenthumbs:
Last saturday was the long awaited day for the 3rd Foodcamp to take place. I was really looking forward to it, cause the first two events were great, so i knew number three would be too. And i can tell you: it was!
I brought my camera with me to take nice pictures. Unfortunately the camera decided otherwise and died after the first 3 pictures (does anyone know what to do when the lens doesn´t want to go back ?) so i had to take them with my crappy Iphone – sorry for that.
Anyways – some pictures to show you what you might have missed:
After a day full of interesting stuff, everyone got a goodie bag. The one last year was pretty cool already but this one left me quite amazed and speechless at the same time.
Besides various awesome goodies (i ate most of them already) this was in it:
Crazy, right? I will live of french fries and stuff for a while i guess :)
A BIG THANK YOU to Nina and Dani and their helpers for organizing this event as well as all their generous sponsors. I am really looking forward to next year (even though i don´t know how to top this goodie bag …)
i brought back some green almonds from israel
i wanted to try to some fancy recipe with them but instead….
i ate them all in one sitting.
i might have to go back to israel RIGHT NOW!
I´ve been back at home on the countryside for easter and nature around
me has been oh so beautiful!
Everything´s in bloom and green at the moment and when i noticed the
masses of herbs growing in the meadows around me i was overjoyed.
So i decided to take a stroll and collect some herbs to prepare a tasty soup.
