we went to this place the other day called saltyard where we had lots of kinds of small (or not so small) plates which we all shared (one thing I love when going out), such as fresh papardelle (I'm a sucker for fresh pasta), matzoh ball soup, oysters, roasted red pepper bruschetta and the list goes on and on..the place has also a choice of some really cool drinks/cocktails as well as a list of desserts you don't want to miss. we had the creme brulee and the chocolate nemesis and they were both fantastique! if you find yourselves in the neighborhood, check it out-xx

Shawls and greek coffees.

today was a bit of a cold day, so I threw on one of my favorite shawls and effortlessly mix matched a few textures.
it is a really vintage one-it belonged to my grandmother- and I love how it flows on the body and how it can instantly transform your whole outfit..

I also made a cup of greek coffee in the afternoon-I really needed one of those and although my morning coffee is usually a french press or a drip one, I simply cannot get over its beyond words smell, its distinct aroma, its original and unique taste.

ok, I also had some delicious treats to pair along, is it too bad?

Green bean and almond soup.

So, this soup has become a staple in our house, not only because it is so easy to make but because it is so, so, so unexpectedly delicious. I wouldn't believe that the ingredients that the recipe uses could create such a flavorful plate, yet when I tried it out the result was so good.
Another thing: if you're looking for nutritious but "attractive" nutritious meals for your kids, this is one of those. You won't believe how the kids love it!
I like to add a scoop of yogurt on top along with some extra olive oil and freshly crushed black pepper..
Recipe as follows:

Green bean and almond soup (adopted by Rose bakery)

serves 6
4 tbs extra virgin olive oil
2 onions, diced
2 sticks celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp salt
pinch of ground black pepper
1 tsp caster sugar (optional)
500g green beans, trimmed (I put the frozen french green beans by trader joe's)
about 1 litre (4 cups) vegetable stock or water, enough to cover the vegetables by 3cm
100g (1 cup) ground almonds (I usually ground whatever almonds I have in the pantry)

Heat the oil in a saucepan, and cook the onions, celery, carrots and garlic over a low heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables soften and are beginning to turn golden. Add the salt and pepper (and sugar if you wish). Add the beans and stir well for about 5 minutes. Pour in the stock or water- the liquid should cover the vegetables by about 3 cm. Simmer for about 30 minutes till all the vegetables are soft. Add the almonds. Stir well, take off the heat and leave to cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor and liquidize until smooth. If the soup is too thick add a little more stock or water. Taste and season if necessary.
