A beautiful Spring weekend it was. We made a wonderful Spring salad yesterday and I think it will be my favorite salad next to this salad which we made a lot last Summer. It was so good that I can't wait to make it again...What else did I do. We were sitting in the sun, reading newspaper, letting the time go by, I was waking up early this morning and finished a book while I could see with the bright sun coming throughout that it was a beautiful day outside. After a an afternoon walk in our neighborhood I decided to get some Spring home with me and got some poppies. I can't wait until they all show their full colors.

That looks like a delightful salad! There's a bag of red quinoa we just bought from the deli waiting to be eaten! I really love this warmer weather...I had to study this weekend, but I made sure this afternoon I went for a walk in the sunshine :) xo

That salad looks amazing. I have spent the afternoon working out recipes for this week - I think I might add that one to the list! Oh how I love quinoa.

That sounds like a lovely way to spend a weekend. I spend some time enjoying the sun in my hammock, went to a dinner party and today I am doing lots of cooking in preparation for a busy week.

It looks like it was a nice, sunny weekend in Sydney. These are lovely photos to look at - I keep looking up and down the page at them. I spy some fancy looking polka dot socks, too!

Liebe Maria, ich bin gerade aus dem Urlaub zurückgekommen und hab genüsslich deine vergangenen Posts verschlungen! Wie immer hast du ein super Gespür für Farben und die Dinge die einem den Tag versüßen. Und deine Cathrine Holm Töpfe sind auch toll, den weißen mit dem blauen Muster hab ich auch am Flohmarkt ergattert, leider ohne Deckel, aber ich koche wahnsinnig gern mit ihm. Liebe Grüße aus Wien und schöne Frühlingstage! Julia

Liebe Maria, was für ein entspanntes Wochenende du hattest :) Der Salat klingt toll und der Katalog sieht auch sehr schön aus! Ich bin ja gerade in Berlin und geniesse die letzten Stunden. Vermutlich war das nun das letzte Sommerwochenende, dabei wäre ich jetzt lieber an deiner Stelle, der Frühling ist einfach meine liebste Jahreszeit :) Hab eine schöne neue Woche!

That salad looks delicious!
We still have most of Sunday left here and are planning on going down the coast to a organic harvest festival. Should be fun!

Mmh der Salat klingt toll und sieht noch besser aus!
Ich bin leider seit Samstag erkältet und heute im Bett geblieben; trotzdem war das Wochenende sehr schön:
gestern waren wir um 8 mit unseren (leider) Exnachbarn am Strand frühstücken - dazu wollen wir uns jetzt öfter aufraffen, der einzige Moment des Tages an dem man den Strand in der Stadt geniessen kann.
nachmittags waren dann meine Eltern kurz hier, sie kamen gerade aus Frankreich und haben uns Brot und Trauben und einen kleinen Feigenbaum mitgebracht.
Schöne Woche, ich drück dich!

The salad looks like perfection! So beautiful! I think I need a little time to sit in the sun and let the time go by. Sounds like a lovely plan for the next few days.

Amazing pics!
