There is a definite coffee theme to this collection of photos and I know it’s a cliché, but I can’t help taking a photo when someone has taken the time to make my coffee pretty. I think going forward I’ll limit these posts to a maximum of nine images per month so that they don’t get too long.
Here is my Instagram roundup for January.

When I bought this spanspek (also known as cantaloupe) I knew that I wanted to eat it with prosciutto or a similar style cured ham. The only cured ham the supermarket had at the time was something called spek which I’d never tried before. That didn’t stop me from buying it though. I’m not going to lie, the alliteration in the title tickled me, but I found the flavour of the spek was too strong for the melon.
- Cubes of spanspek wrapped in spek and
- a salad with shredded cabbage, red onion, sugar snap peas and baby tomatoes.

Inspired by this post over on Add To Taste, this is the first in what I’d like to become a regular series on the food related photos I’ve uploaded to Instagram.
Here are my foodie instagrams from December, click on any of the images to view a larger version in it’s original form.

The lunch in today’s post is an example of how I often plan for lunches by organising an extra portion of food at supper time. On this occasion we had a fairly lazy dinner of sausages and salads from our local German deli. I divided the food into three portions (one for me, one for my boyfriend and one for my lunchbox) and packed my lunch at the same time as I dished up supper.
- Sliced debreziner sausage,
- German potato salad,
- a few quartered baby tomatoes and
- mixed bean salad.
Hello out there! Is there anyone out there? I really hope so, it’s been way too long since there was a new post around here. With this post (and more to come) I’m hoping to revive my dear blog and also healthier lunchtimes for me. So without further ado, here is what’s in today’s lunch box.
- A salad of nectarine slices and goats milk chevin
- on a bed of mixed salad leaves, red cabbage, sugar snap peas, shaved carrot and baby tomatoes .
