There is no bigger joy than the time when my daughter is coming into the kitchen and asks: how can I help? Then I believe that any regular meal can become a royal one or any cloudy sky can become sunny … just because we did it together …
If the last weekend we were very active and full of energy this weekend we felt tired, me and my huuby were very stressed and busy with the exams of our sweetheart. Thanks to the weird weather wich was wet, wet, wet …. I was in a cooking mood and even baked something. :)
Because of that on Saturday we had some sausages … maybe just because thinking of the cabbage I have in the fridge and how good will match a sausage I ended up by buying some for lunch … Difficult to decide because not all of us enjoy the spicy ones :) so I had to decide for two choices : original and spicy !!! Lucky me I would say … a little bit of everything is how I like it :) !!!
As a side dish, cabbage mixed with whole wheat pasta and crushed tomatoes and italian herbs …what can I add, it was like a madness on a plate. :)
Whole wheat cabbage pasta with sausages:
I know there are lots of calories, it is a very rich food …but hey it’s once in a while :)and we try to balance it a bit on Sunday when we had a gorgeous salmon baked on a fennel and cherries tomatoes layer. The recipes I found on BBC Good Food really turned out wonderful. But if there is salmon I cannot resist but also make some fresh dill and butter potatoes which adds some richness to it but lots and lots of flavour as well. :)

And because of the weather and because it was weekend, we could not end it without a dessert … with blueberries of course ! At least I had a reson to bake :)
Sunday evening, after a cloudy and pouring afternoon, to end our weekend in a better mood I just looked outside the window and ran to take my camera and to capture a wonderful full moon. :)
Have a great week everyone !!!
