Sadik and I plated pumpkin seeds in the pots 3 weeks ago. They sprouted very quickly and now the tiny plants have thick luscious green leaves.

I don’t like mashed potato, and somebody thinks it’s blasphemy. It’s a shame, I don’t really like anything potato except for French fries… oh, and maybe hash browns.

Homemade Pumpkin Pasta with Meatballs

It’s not easy to not fall in love with homemade pasta at first bite. Homemade pasta feels more fresh and tender. What I love the most about it is how wonderfully it drenched and absorbed in any kind of dressing and sauce. We served homemade pasta often at home whenever there’s time enough to play with
