This week in my kitchen

I decided to join in Heather's blog hop this week 

Capturing my love of whole foods, combined with the activity of a bustling kitchen.
A weekly collection of photos from the center of my home.

  • our kitchen is THE place in our flat to play music and practice our instruments. Today I had my cello playing friend here to try some classical duets (piano + cello) with me. We still have to practice a lot, but it sounded quite promising.
  • As it was an urgent request from my oldest daughter, I made mixed-seed-granola. We all love homemade granola and it is actually very easy to make.
  • I had some leftover granola crumbs that we added to a really yummy blueberry soy-yoghurt. I didn't know that soy-yoghurt is so tasty. I will definitely buy it again.
  • Sometimes I have a sudden craving for lentils. Then, I'll cook some red lentil soup or like this week french lentil stew.
  • A lot of very important work is going on in our kitchen. Learning, drawing, painting, crafting, chatting, tea drinking, cake eating, experimenting and laughing, of course (those moments when the kids recite all the jokes they remember and it is never ending :-) 
I hope you had a great week in your kitchen, too!

  2. Your kitchen truly does sound like the heart of your home. How I would love to listen to piano and cello duets as I prepared my food.
    You have inspired me to make granola. I haven't done it in a long time, but I agree it is easy and delicious.

    1. Thanks for stopping by.
      I have to make another batch on the week-end because all the granola has dissapeared already. :-)

    2. Yes, music has always been a part of my life, Tracey.

      I saw that you baked sour dough bread. It looks yummy. Do you try other breads, too?

    1. Ich muss mal gucken, jojo. Ich koche die so aus dem Kopf, aber irgendwo habe ich ein Rezept mit Mengenangaben. Ich kann's ja die Tage hier einstellen, ja?

  5. Oh... music in the kitchen! I play the piano and I've taken on cello for two years, but didn't find the needed time to practice. A pity, because it's such a warm comforting sound! Duets are fun!

    1. I started playing the violin years back and didn't really find the time to pratice, either. Piano was always my priority - it came much easier to me. Duets on piano are fun, too! I used to play Latin American dances with a friend in my teen years. Great memories! :-)

    1. A real piano? I envy you. I didn't want to annoy the neighbours, therefore I bought a Clavinova, which is electrical and the sound doesn't have to be so loud. But a real piano would be awesome!
