Back in the City
So we ended up staying the whole week at my parents´ on the beach, from christmas to the New Year. It was relaxing and beutiful, and the fresh air much appreciated. Coming back to the city and our small apartment was hard at first, and now we´re just starting to get used to it again and organizing the spaces a bit here and there. Today we went to La Vega which is a huuuuge market where you can get mostly fruits and vegetables straight out of the trucks that come from all over the country and also lots of other stuff like meat or rice or eggs and really, it´s huge. It´s walking about a half hour from home, so it´s also a little bit of exercise for this pregnant lady. We got ourselves a brand new cart for carrying all of our goodies and then on the afternoon (or should I say the afternap?) I baked this delicious creation. The recipe is here, from the always wonderful Smitten Kitchen. Originaly it´s done with nectarines, and actually I made it with nectarines while we where at the beach and it turned out amazing, but this time I had a bunch of Apricots so that´s what I used. There´s quite a bit of brown butter in it and mmmmmm, well, let´s just say, I highly recommend you make it as soon as posible.
So here I am, staring the new year with a big pregnant belly and a sweet yummy tooth.
Smiles and happy new year to you.
