Is this a blog about cooking?

Pork cutlet with new potatoes and peppers roasted in the oven

Fresh pasta with eggplant, tomatoes, mozzarella and rocket

 ... no, it isn`t! I had a kind of snarl-up when both of my boys left home. I did not enjoy cooking anymore and thought for the two of us omelettes, sandwiches, quick pastas would do. Meanwhile the pleasure of good cooking has come back as these pictures of the weekend prove. Preparing a tasty, wholesome, homemade meal is something one owes to oneself and which is definitely worth preparing no matter whether you cook and setting the table for one or two! Don`t you think?

Happy evening and a good start into the new week!

  1. Hello Christa
    Your dinner looks delicious. We love oven dinners and particularly on Sunday, without fail, we roast pans of vegetables.
    Hope you have a wonderful time in Ireland. There is a wonderful seafood restaurant, a short drive from Oranmore, called Moran's of the Weir. I think you will enjoy it very much. Bring your camera.
