Apricot Jam

 This is a childhood memory at grandma's house..
Well, I have never imagined that one day I could make my grandmother's recipes and I would find them easy to make!
These memories come back when Harry brought me home more apricots than we can manage.
So, let's start with the recipe!
For 1kg apricots I used 600gr sugar and juice of 1/2 lemon [if you prefer more sweet taste, you can use 'till 800gr of sugar].
After washed and cut them in half, bring in a pot with the sugar and leave them sleep all night in the fridge.
Next day, bring to boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
Once mixture reaches a rolling boil, add the lemon juice and continue to boil it for some minutes, stirring frequently to prevent it from sticking.

[The jam should turn a darker colour and should jell when cool]
Remove from heat, fill jars and turn upside-down. Then let them cool completely.
To be honest I always put a double layer of butter on my bread but it's been two weeks that I avoid these kind of habits
 [you know-because of summer-body-crisis] !
Have a nice day and see you soon :)

make my day

Nafplio 2011
I'm waiting until these days come back again.. making frozen homemade lemonade

 ..and eating all the seasonal fruits- just to understand that summer has already come!!!

I love to watch the growing of my little plants
..and the taste of mozzarella-tomato-basil in my mouth

Finally, I adore to end my day by taking a brief study break!!!

"Oh Yes!"- As you might understand, I can't wait 'til my summer holidays!!!
As you might understand too, is very hard for me to study for my exams when it's so sunny outside... and that's all for me!

So what's up with you guys? Any summer thought?

Potato Salad

 Potato salad is one more quick n easy recipe and a great dish for summer season. 
I always make a big quantity and keep it in fridge for couple of days.

The only preparation is to boil the potatoes [with  the peel].
..chopped and combine fresh onions, red pepper, pickles and a half bunch of dill. 
Those ingredients are just my preferences, there's nothing wrong with the recipe to use whatever you have on hand.

 Sprinkle olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper on top.
Give it a good stirring and ready!

Wish you a delicious weekend :)
It was a really good break for me ..and now back to work!
Hope you like it!

ps: Thanks again for your sweet comments! Really means a lot to me and I always find the time to read them but I have no time to relpy [i feel awful].
If you are new here and you like my blog, it would be great if you followed me :)

Fried Eggs

..over pita bread
I could call it "mini egg pizza"..
I used a delicious tomato-sauce-appetizer [mix of tomato, eggplant, carrot and herbs] made by a small partnership nearby my hometown.
First version with beans and the second one with mushrooms and cherry tomatoes..
[do not forget the turkey fillet in the middle]

I have nothing more today than a very simple recipe..
I apologize for not blogging often but my exams period has already started and I have hard study because I'm so close to my graduation..

Thank you so much for your sweet comments! You really make my day and make me wanna be a better blogger :)
So, I have to go back to study now.. [Wish me luck]
Have a wonderful summery time!
