My family here in Austria is quite small, which basically means that we’re extremely close to my grandparents. We live in the same town and often meet for dinner or lunch. Since we still don’t have a kitchen at the moment, we opted to have a BBQ for the first time this season. Just some simple things, quickly thrown together, and a bit of sunshine made for a lovely spring day :)

Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates it.

We’ve been kinda snowed in here – it’s pretty insane to be honest, but I don’t even have an opinion on this anymore to be honest. Spring will come… some time (soon, I hope).

I started my day with a delicious breakfast in bed, then went to hunt for easter eggs at my grandparent’s house before we had them over for lunch. It was super, super yummy. In my family we love to entertain and cook for guests, so that’s a huge plus.
We enjoy simple, good food. High quality food that you don’t haveto do much with. Something that’s easy and quick to prepare but pretends to be really lavish. Maybe you could say that we just like to cheat ;)
