On Friday, me and S went to “Hlemmur mathöll”, again or again for me at least. I love that place as you have a few food options to choose from at the same place. This time me and S tried out “Kröst”, we shared the charcuterie platter first which was ok, could definitely improve a bit, too much sausage pieces everywhere for my taste, I like more “charcuterie meat slices”. And then I took the “kinda fillet” (I wanted the beef though, but it was finished…) and S took the burger, but he actually wanted to try out the burrito place but they had closed already at 21.00… on a Friday?!… But anyway, the “kinda fillet” was very good and S thought the burger was OK as he doesn’t like cole slaw that much hehe. I like cole slaw so I will need to try out the burger next time.
On Saturday I went to the Champagne brunch at Laugar Spa, I met up with our Gudrun and Melkorka. It was a very nice little meet and we got to try their new products they just released. I love lemongrass and the smell from the lemongrass body shower oil and the mist is so good!!
I’m going to Sweden soon and I can’t wait!! Never could I imagined that I would be that excited to go back to Sweden haha. I’m heading to Stockholm and Borås, S is also coming after the football season is done but I can’t wait that long. ;)
A delicious and creamy sauce made of cauliflower, making it much more healthier and lighter without all that cream in the sauce. I’m using Almond milk instead and as you mix cooked cauliflower it gets that super creamy consistence. Just perfect. I used this sauce over some whole grain pasta and chicken and topped it with some oven fried bacon, so yummy! Better choice for healthier food. :)
1 Cauliflower, cut into smaller pieces
1 onion, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 dl chicken or vegetable broth
3 dl almond Milk
Place cauliflower, onion, salt, garlic, and chicken broth in a saucepan and cover with a lid. Heat on medium high and steam the mixture for about 5 minutes, or until the cauliflower is soft.
Add everything from the saucepan to a blender and pour in the almond milk. Blend until the sauce becomes smooth and creamy. Taste the sauce and add more salt and pepper, if needed.
Here are some pictures of my weekend <3 And yes, all those food pictures, the only thing I take snaps of haha.
This weekend I had a visit from a friend from England so I took her downtown and showed her around. We went for a lunch visit to “Hlemmur Mathöll” and tried out the vegan burrito. It was very good, had a lot of mushrooms and I love mushrooms! On Saturday evening we had a nice dinner at “Apotek restaurant”, one of my favourite restaurants In Iceland. So good food there.
Sunday was a very easy day, exactly how Sunday’s should always be. I prepared an easy but very good Sunday dinner for me and S <3. Lamb prime, oven-roasted potatoes, fried broccoli, mushrooms and red onion with a white wine sauce. Yummy.
This week I enjoyed the Blue lagoon two times haha. Thats how it goes when you get visitors. My aunt and her family was here last week and now my friend from England is here for a visit. Not bad at all as I love to relax in the hot water.
I couldn’t manage to take any good photos with my camera the first time as the weather wasn’t that good, it rained and was very windy. But the second time it was so much better, perfect lighting and no wind. So me and my friend Sofia<3 snapped some quick photos before we enjoyed the lagoon. But now I think I will have some break until I visit the blue lagoon next time haha.
My white bikini is from -KOPPER & ZINK- One of my favorites at the moment. <3
