Sunday breakfast

To be honest, I've never liked Sundays. I've always considered them as sad days. The next day is Monday. They are too short and extended to the maximum at the same time. The next day is Monday. I can't do anything, beacuse I'm thinking how much I have to do. The next day is monday.
So maybe I just don't like Monadys.

But nowadays I'm trying to do the best of Sundays. Try to cook, go for a walk, bake, read a book. And take photos.

So this is it. Cinnamon buns, tea grapefruit and camera.
I baked those goodies and I will share the recipe later, promise.

And I think it wast a good day. But don't tell anyone. I'm still not that into Sundays. But we're working on it.


salmon pasta.

Oh, those winter days, when you're craving for some carbons.
And I don't know how about you, but I find pasta really healthy. Really. And delicious. Really.
But maybe it's only me.
And maybe it's my imaginery italian heritage.

One way or another, there is salmon. And tomatoes. And dry tomatoes. And other healthy stuff. So maybe it's really healthy, right?
