It has occurred to me that I haven’t posted in a very, very long time. I don’t know why. We are still eating. I am still shoppping, and cooking and taking photos. Well, I will resolve to do better from now on.
I am rediscovering the joys of bircher muesli for brekky. And the joys of lovely luscious fruit. I bought a tray of mangoes from the Engrosmarkt* for CHF6 on Saturday, and although they didn’t look much, they are divine. Really ripe, fragrant and juicy. We have been enjoying them everyday, in smoothies, in bircher muesli, in slices and cubes eaten straight from the chilled cheeks…so good!
I’ve just prepped a bircher muesli for brekky tomorrow (or should I say later this morning, as it is very very late, way past my bedtime, but I was waiting up for Bruno who went to see the Dead Kennedy’s play in Winterthur. Yes, I thought they were dead, too, but apprently not), with masses of strawberries and mango, to be eaten with glops of cherry yoghurt. Now that is something to look forward to in the midst of the morning rush.
* For the information of any Zürich residents, the Engrosmarkt (fruit and vegetable wholesale market) is open to the public between 8 – 10am each Saturday morning. It is well worth going. We (a group of about 9 families) have set up a little fruit n veg cooperative and take it in turns to go and buy in bulk for everyone. A huge box of seasonal fruit n veg costs somewhere between CHF14 – 25 per week, depending on what is in season and what looks good etc. This is a post in itself, which I will elaborate on another time.
