22 March: Honey-mustard chicken wings, broccoli salad, bread and cheesecheesecheese

21 March:Kimchi fried rice
First, the kimchi bubbled over, straight through the clasp closure of its jar. Then it exploded all over the kitchen and up my sleeve when I opened the clasp. And then the husband spent 24 hours ousting the smell from the kitchen. But I would not be deterred and stirred a few large handfuls of the stinky, fermented cabbage through our dinner. Yum. (Despite appearances, the baby did not share in the spicy stuff. Her muck from a jar just looks remarkably similar in the picture.)
20 March: Pasta rosa with shrimp, fennel salad
The baby was zonked out by 19.30hrs, so we had a quiet dinner with pasta from Nigellissima. With “quiet” being the operative word, because Friday nights are not our most energetic. these days.
19 March: Pizza al taglio at Fucina
Léa’s last day at her first daycare, and we marked the occassion with delicious pizza slices and somewhat underseasoned soup (and a pile of toys to explore) at Fucina.
18 March: Pasta with tomato sauce and sardines
