This week has been quite hard: problems at work, horrible weather and a really awful “there is no chocolate” situation at home. Fortunately, Friday is here! It seems that the sun is visiting us on Saturday, I’ve bought a couple chocolate bars and we are attending a friend’s brithday party, so chances are that we will finish the week with a smile.
What are you up to this weekend?
This Thursday Saint Nicholas is coming! He will bring sweets and small treats and gifts. Great German tradition, if you ask me. Wake up to a nice pair of shoes full of chocolates is a wonderful idea, don’t you think?
For those who want to adopt this adorable tradition, here you have our sweetest suggestion: Summerbird and Galler chocolates.
We discovered both brands the first time we visited Hamburg. Since then, every time we visit this lovely city we come back home with a bag full of deliciousness, as you can see in the picture :-). I totally recommend the Summerbird nougat covered almonds and Galler mini bars, specially the white chocolate with walnut praline filling. Not only have both brands excelent quality products, but also gorgeous packaging. You will make Saint Nicholas really proud!
We usually buy these chocolates at Oschätzen Hamburg, but maybe you could find them in your favourite gourmet shop. Ask for them! You won’t regret it!
This a perfect treat for long cold Winter afternoons. It’s very easy to prepare and you can use different ingredients. Apples are a great option, but this time I chose pears.
We love books. All of them. We have to be careful not to spend our whole budget on books. The first piece of furniture that we bought was a huge bookcase!
And we love food. So… we love cookbooks! This is our little cookbook collection in our kitchen.
There was Zara in Bruges, so I had to stop by. I bought this beautiful necklace. Well, not just the necklace…
