I took three days off work but we had grey weather and rain all weekend so I had time for some indoor projects. I started a new book by Lisa See. I devoured her novel “Shanghai Girls” and now I started “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan”. The story is quite tragic but I really like the stories of ancient China and so I can really recommend her books so far.
I wanted to make a blog post earlier this weekend but it was kind of dark outside all day long so I couldn’t take any pictures. Apart from that my camera is broken. There is a little black spot on every picture I take. I had this once before and then it was suddenly ok again. It is quite annoying because there is really nothing I can do. I think I will look for a camera shop today to help me out, because the sun is coming out again.
So we had brussels sprouts in our vegetable box on Friday. Usually I prepare brussels sprouts by putting them in boiling water until they are soft but frying them in a pan with almonds is also a nice alternative, as I like crisp vegetables. I used almond slivers because I had some left over but you can certainly just use chopped almonds.
