Spring is here now and as the sun shows more, it is time to try news things, get ready for the summer and do a proper spring clean of the house!
First of all, I am all about food so I want to try some news recipes: starting with my own pasta. A colleague told me about Nife is Life (http://www.nifeislife.com/) which is an online shop for all Italian things at an incredible price. So definitely, this spring I will try making pasta.
I am trying to be healthier and probably go more to the gym this Spring; so the plan is to train for a 5k.
This involves new running clothes (I've got to treat myself sometimes right?!) and try new foods. Not long ago I found out I actually do like guacamole. I know you must be wondering where I have been hiding for the past few years but in my defence, I am a bit slow..
Carrying on with the food topic, here are a few kitchen appliances I would love to buy as well:
1- The mesto kitchen mortar and pestle
You probably haven't heard about the Mesto, but wondering around the internet I found this new product coming out later this month that looks like THE thing I need in my kitchen. I gave up on my mortar and pestle. I found it too heavy and too annoying to use, all the ingredients were always falling out of it, it was a mess. This is the answer to all my problems! It has a kind of lid which is perfect for curry sauces and grinding seeds without them flying in the room! And you can make 3 different mixes or grinding without having to wash inbetween them! Check it out on their website http://www.mestokitchen.com/ and make sure you come back to buy it on the 26th of April at a discounted price! I will be using this for my new found love for Guacamole! Don't fret, once I buy it I will write a review n here in case you still have your doubts. I can't wait to try it!
2- The nutribullet
I love smoothies so the nutribullet is one of those things that for some reason I haven't bought but I've been meaning to for ages.. I did say I am a bit slow! This goes hand in hand with the "being healthier goal". I would love a simple blender where I can put spinach and kale with mango and apple and kiwi for breakfast (yum) and doesn't leave me with a horrible lumpy drink. I find all the blenders I've tried before leave me with a lumpy smoothie and that is just not nice. The juicers I've tried just need too much cleaning and I don't have the patience. So from what I hear the nutribullet is the way to go.
3- A ceramic pan
I keep hearing a lot about these ceramic pans and how nothing sticks and they are easy to clean. Apart from that I don't really know much about it. I have heard a lot of mixed reviews so we'll have to try and see how it is! I will keep you posted!
Doing a Spring clean in my flat would involve a lot of time and a lot of patience (that I don't have) but I have been reading this amazing blog called organize my house and she seems to have the answer to my prayers with lots of shortcuts and ideas so I will to follow her advise and get some cleaning done! You can check her blog out at http://www.organisemyhouse.com/
I used some of her ideas when I was moving out but my flat definitely needs some TLC and Spring is the perfect time for it! Let's see if I can find the time for it!
What are your thoughts? Do you have any goals or wishlists for this Spring?
