food trends of the week # 3
alright, I have to admit I have been extremely lazy to cook these days - working, social life, doing those little things that make your day smiley have been keeping me away from the oven. But I promise to make up for this real soon with some good recipes. This doesn't mean that I have been keeping my hands off yummy things, though. So here are my latest addictions :)
For a month now, I have been trained for a new position at work and together with 9 other people I am part of the commercial passage team. Last week we were invited for a team building dinner and we went Italian. So I had this very delicious meal of pumpkin-filled ravioli with sauce made of cream, pumpkin, zucchini and tomatoes... all of this topped with parmesan cheese. And it was an extremely delightful meal! :)
The yummy non-edibles
This week I bought some cosmetics as well - shower gel and body scrub. The shower gel is milk with red berries and the body scrub from Sephora with chocolate toffee aroma (this week in Prague they had a really nice offer - 1+1 free on the Sephora brand, so I decided to take advantage of it). Both things smell so good, I can hardly keep myself from actually eating them.
Randomly discovered restaurants are the best! I never expected a great Thai restaurant is hiding right next to an underground stop in Prague. I mean the things that are usually very close to the underground and places for fast food and so I though this restaurant was, until I discovered it is quite unique atmosphere with great plates, fresh tea and very well-sized portions (after eating you are just full enough, but you don't feel heavy). The place itself is called Yam Yam at Vyšehrad station. Definitely the experience is to be repeated this week!
Hello Kitty puffy cakes
Italian small pastry called merendine al cioccolato is the latest thing I discovered while grocery shopping yesterday. The are soft and very light, indulging and puffy :) and the have Hello Kitty gifts inside (I myself got a pencil and an eraser with that kitty's face)... wonder when will I grow up and whether it would eventually happen at all :D until then I am going to proudly sharpen my pencil and bring it to work :P
