Well, last week I shared this pic on Instagram and some friends asked me to share the recipe (for 4 people)...here you are my dears.
Millet and arugola pesto
280 gr millet
2 cups arugola
1 spoon pine nuts
1 spoon olive oil
2 spoons grated bread
salt and pepper
First of all you have to rinse out the millet (to remove impurities), than cook for about 20 minutes it in salty water, equal to 2 times the volume of the millet.
In the mean time with a minipimer mix up the ingredients of the pesto: arugola, pine nuts, oil grated bread an a pinch of salt an pepper.
Once the millet is ready (and the water has been absorbed) mix it with the pesto.
Sweet carrots with basils
4 medium size carrots
1 spoon of dried basil
Peel and cut the carrots and cook them with salt and a bit of water, once they are almost ready add the basil. Then place on top of the millet and taste everything.
Please note: I used grated bread instead of Grana cheese because I wanted to make a vegan recipe, but you can use Grana if you prefer.

Have you ever tried a DIY kit? I never did, but I am a bit tempted by the iPhone cross stitch case and the kits by chutbysewetlaine available on Etsy.
There are several ideas available on the Web for DIY Kits, if you are into them you can check two different kind of "subscriptions", the first idea is form For the Makers (I love their website, it is fashionable and cool), then there are the German girls od Supercraft.
Then another interesting website where you can find tutorials and, sometime kits, is Kollabora - I posted a tutorial few times ago.

Recently I started buying vegetables form a group of guys who are collecting Zero impact seasonal vegetables: they send you every Monday an email with the availability, you answer with the veg you don't want and in the end on Friday you can go to their headquarters to collect your case for just 10,00€.
I am eating a lot of cauliflowers, Savoy cabbage, lettuce, carrots...
Do you remember I redesigned my diet? Because of that I also bought a book from an Italian guy (Le ricette dei magnifici 20. I buoni piatti che si prendono cura di noi ) where he explains through recipes and a brief introduction how to combine what you eat, how to cook and what is really healthy for us. I am learning a lot.
I will try some recipes and maybe take pics on Instagram explaining the making of.
Then, here you are some food blog I follow - some are vegetarian, some are not but I try to adapt recipes to a veg version:

I like the wood desks and that old stools made by Ikea (I wonder why they are out of their catalog now), even though I think that my Aeron Herman Miller is something I would never ever change, it super comfortable and cool too.
The picture comes from Pinterest, I guess the magazine who published it is called RUM.
