Rain and a healthy recipe

One of the loveliest things in the world: Waking up to the rain drumming on the roof...


Everything relaxes and breathes more easily. The leaves of my lemon tree are uncurling, the chickens scratch
and cluck with fresh enthusiasm, and the people are smiling.

To celebrate the cooler weather, here a delicious, healthy, feel-good recipe. I was in doubt what Eva would think of it, 
but she ate without complaints.

Couscous Salad

Wash and slice any fresh vegetables. I used tomatoes, green pepper, onion, carrots, sprouts and mint leaves, and
added sliced dates, pineapples, a can of chick peas and some sliced feta.

Make a dressing out of olive oil, balsamico vinegar, honey and mustard, add to the veggie mix.

Then prepare the couscous and mix it all together.

A wonderful day to you!

Lots of love,

  1. Finally rain! What a blessing! I just have to try and add pineapple to the tomato salad, yours looks so yummy...

  2. I'll match your rain with sunshine and a thaw here for a great day. The chickens have come out of the coop and all the cobwebs in the house are showing!

  3. What a lovely way to embrace the rain. Hopefully tomorrow will feel like a new day.

  4. Jutta,
    The salad looks delicious.
    It is raining here also and I am loving it.
    Thinking of making the salad tomorrow.
    Thinking of you.....

  5. Jutta,

    1. A very happy new year to you too! Since i moved to a desert i am so crazy about rain. wouldn't have believed it if you told me that would happen while growing up in Germany...

  6. That has got to be one of the prettiest salads ever! I woke up to rain yesterday too and it was just lovely!

  7. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
