Life lately has been hot! Summer is officially here. We bought a BBQ for our balcony, brought our fan down from storage, added more plants to our garden, and I’m mentally preparing for the summer heat sans air conditioning. I plan to buy a season pass to the badis (sectioned off swimming areas on the lake) and be a lake bum. And probably spend some day-times in Starbucks AC to survive the heat.
Besides my heat woes, I’ve still been hanging out around Zürich and enjoying the everyday life…
I saw the German rendition of Dirty Dancing. Baby was still Baby and we still had the time of our lives. Good thing I know the story, because my German speaking is still nicht so gut.
Jon had to take a last minute trip back to the states which left me home alone on a four day weekend. I was completely lazy and addicted to Pretty Little Liars. I was feeling guilty about not enjoying the sunshine, so I moved the viewing party to the balcony.
I recently found out about the New Asia Market which supplies every Asian grocery you could need for a ridiculously cheap price. It’s a bit of a trek though, so I stocked up. Notice the mounds of coconut milk for some more chia pudding.
I made this chocolate pudding recipe (with soft tofu) and the servings fit perfectly in my new shot glasses. Yes, I’m old and can’t remember the last time I used my shot glasses for anything other than dessert.
Monday was a day off for some religious holiday (which equals work holiday in Europe) so we ate brunch at Le Pain Quotidien and headed to the lake. I held down the fort while Jon swam. It may be hot, but I wasn’t quite ready for the chilly lake water.
Happy Weekend to you!
