Gazpacho with Ravioli

It's been like an oven for the last few days. None of us had appetite. So I decided to make something cool and refreshing for dinner. Simply purreed the peeled tomatoes, onion, garlic, cucumber, and the soaked day-old rolls and seasoned with salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil. The raviolis were stored bought and filled with cheese.

Black Eye

No you were not in a fight. I was shocked too when I noticed your black eye. Apparently you woke up crying in the middle of the night because you somehow managed to hit your eye on the ladder of bunk bed. Being a deep sleeper I slept through it and only realised what had happened when your mother pointed it out the next day.

Kai Can Ride!

I was so proud! You could ride like a big boy! Well you still need to work on the breaking... Four years old and riding your bike. I remember I learned to ride much later and even had training wheels. You didn't need them at all! Thanks Grandpa Gote for the cool new bike!

Cooking Updates

I know. Looking at these pictures it seems like we don't eat any vegetables. I just usually don't take pictures of the sides dishes...
Cold zucchini soup with steamed butter fish and caviar.
Strawberries are in season and are oh so sweet. Simple dessert with fresh strawberries and vanilla ice-cream after lunch - steak with peper sauce.
On our anniversary I made a filet wrapped in bacon. First time I baked the steak instead of pan frying, worked out pretty well. 5 mins on each side is good for medium.
Made pizza with the kids one night - hawaiian. They really loaded it up with cheese, you can't really see the pineapples and bacon.
Baked chicken wings marinated in lemon juice and olive oil wrapped in bacon. If it's not for the biking and jogging we really can't afford to eat so much bacon.
Lunch by myself. I discoverd this canned kimchi at the Asiashop here and bought loads. Simply topped some rice with it plus couple of eggs and some seaweed and chilli sauce.
