When I think of going back home I feel a sense comfort, the ability to be around family, my friends and my routine.
Ah routine, the thing that by letting go finally gave me my life back. As much as I love having the same schedule everyday i know that when going back home I can’t won’t allow myself to slump back into those strict habits.
By being spontaneous and accepting opportunities as they have been presented I’ve been able to see that there’s a whole other girl that’s been hidden inside of me for so long.
So back to comfort… I’m not even sure what that word means in my life anymore considering the amount of change I’ve been going through lately; mentally and physically of course.
Comfort can be food which I seem to have resorted to being lots and lots of carbs
Comfort can be the place we call home; but where is home when you’re an expat?
Comfort can be knowing you have support when the the times get tough
Comfort can also mean change.
Five things i ate
Cherry Clafoutis has become my favourite summertime dessert and I plan to bring to recipe back to my parents restaurant! It’s pretty much an upside down cherry cake but with a pancake like batter so it’s light and fluffy! That being said there’s a lot of sugar in it!
Since I’m working all day everyday up until the day I leave my host dad came and friended my girl and I lunch! He knew I loved eggs a and cheese so I got a Quiche Lorraine fresh from the bakery! Who can turn down something so good!
More free time means more baking time for me! I made these Vanilla Protein Kinder Pancakes for breakfast as a nic ebalanced treat. Yes I ate chocolate in the morning but hey, it was good so that’s all that matters.
When I was in Berlin I grabbed a Mint Chocolate Pulsin bar and I’m so mad at myself for not getting more! It’s by fr my dbaorite bar other than questbars of course! I had it for snack long side my trusty Kombucha!
Overnight oats topped with soya yogurt, blueberries and apricots! Oh! and hemp seeds!
