Logging time

I barely have time to sit down and write a post, but loads of things are happening around me and I feel like I should record some of it. Honestly, I miss my diary.

My sister and I attended a Vegan Milk Workshop to learn how to make vegan milks, cheeses, and sweet curd (from millet). We made almond milk and rice milk, a cheese using sunflower seeds as base and cashew sour cream. The recipes were quite easy and the result was really yummy! 🙂

The glasses are layered with baking paper and they contain the cheeses. Behind them to the left is the cashew sour cream in the bowl, and to the right is the sweet curd with raisins.

As we arrived early, we had a little extra time and found a nice coffee shop, Madal Cafe. I really liked the interior and the atmosphere was quite cosy.

Should I stay or…

Most of the year’s first month was spent wavering between two possibilities: the idea of traveling abroad and the idea of staying home. There are many pros and cons to both options, so I will not line them up here. Traveling abroad means London. What do I want to do there? I want to work and make enough money so that I can begin the publishing process of the trilogy. This is an old dream of mine and I feel that I am in a good place now to make it happen. But… Well, there are a few of those. In the first place, my health and the fact that I would travel alone. My mom says I should offer this plan to the universe and send love to it. In my mind that’s okay, let’s just hope it helps. A couple of days ago I got this email message which wonderfully answered many of my doubts:

Happy happy New Year :)

I had a very eventful week though, I admit, I had hoped to have more rest. Luckily, I found time to enjoy nature’s beauty down by a lake with some friends. The surface of the water was already frozen, so people were using it for skating and messing around. So far, we’ve had zero snow but a lot of sunshine and temperatures at negative five degrees Celsius.

Christmas preparations

Last weekend I attended a Raw Vegan Christmas Candy Workshop in Budapest. We made six types of super cool Christmas candies from healthy ingredients. The recipes were so easy! My favourite is the Date-Caramel flavoured one. The other flavours were: Dried fruits, Dried plums, Marzipan-Sour cherry-Poppy seed, Coconut and Jelly. All of them got covered with fine quality tempered bitter chocolate. 🙂
