I should be honest and say that probably cause I have travelled so much in my life I really don’t get the fuss over the French Riviera i.e. Monte Carlo, Nice, St. Tropez, Cannes etc. I think its quite over rated, mainly cause Paris Hilton parties all the time in the VIP Room and cause Heidi Klum takes her clan on a yacht around the coast. All things said, French are lovely and nice and we all just want a resting vacation where we can bum around the beaches and do nothing at all…

Now on to some food/exercise news!

There is a Korean/Japanese food store in the city which is much cheaper than if I were to buy some of the Asian goodies in a normal grocery store. Unfortunately its quite far for my casa but I did go there this week. Amongst other things I got these:

SEASONED LAVER. This is a really good option for us cause I just don’t know how to much sushi, and cause I don’t like rice. Well I like it a little, but I love seaweed. Need to find a compromise….

So I take some cauliflower , microwave it and then mash it. Oh, and don’t forget to add salt+pepper!

Other things I/mama made this week (I am not a fan of either, but the familia loves it)

Salade Olivier

I don’t actually have exact amounts but here is the guidline:

  • Boil potatoes (okay if they are with skin, you can peel them off later) and eggs
  • Leave them to cool (I actually put them in the fridge and continuted only the day after…)
  • Drain a can of pickels and cut them into cubes
  • Get the potatoes and the hard boiled eggs, peel them and cut them into small cubes
  • Mix all in a bowl and add mayo, salt and pepper

Baba Ghanoush Gone Wrong

  • Grill 1 large or 2 medium eggplant
  • Let it cool
  • Take out all the insides and trash the skin (sounds gross sorry)
  • Put in blender and add some tahini, salt, pepper, tons of garlic and lemon juice to the mix
  • Mix until you get a smooth texture

Dunno why, but something just went wrong with the taste.

Exercise

Friday was a run, Saturday was a run….I am not getting bored of these (duh). I am trying to use up my time of good weather, cause soon, I am telling you guys, its going to start to be cold and I will be freezing my butt off

Same old, same old:
