Flowers and spring food.

  Spring is at it's best and the first tiny flowers are on there way out, leaving room for slightly larger and brighter ones. We have a long weekend right now due to some holidays, and the weather is finally bright, sunny and warm.

We went on an excursion to a bog close to where we live. We had never heard of it before and it doesn't seem to be a very well visited place, since there wasn't even a parking lot, you just had to park at the side of the gravel road that went by the path. The bog doesn't really fit into the surroundings, since it's mostly farm lands. That made it extra special, since it was like coming to the north of Sweden for a little while. The weather was stunning.

 Lunch: Quinoa with basil, thyme carrots with red onions, bacon imitation bits (recipe from the best veggie burgers on the planet) and some olives. Some balsamic dressing from Appetite for reduction on top of this and it felt like I was in the middle of summer.

 Our seedlings was in desperate need of re-potting, so I gave them huge pots that they will be able to stay in for the rest of the summer. We are growing red chili peppers and ghost peppers and there's also a basil plant that we bought from the supermarket.

I had iced coffee 3 times today, maybe sliiightly to excited about the good weather. Drinking it as always in my awesome Vegan Dish mug that I won during Vegan MoFo.

I made the chocolate pumpkin loaf from the Post Punk Kitchen, but subbed baking powder for baking soda and I should've known better. It came out really rubbery and sad, but pretty!
