How to gain 4 kg in 2 weeks? Easy. Go and spend Easter with our parents.
Yesterday, I went straight form the airport to our home scale. OMG 69,3 kg! Shit!
How in the hell that happened?
I know what happened. The food happened.
Lovely, organic, fresh, local food.
And I’m not sorry, not even a bit.
Lambs are in season. The winter was strong so the pancetta taste like heaven. The bread is homemade, everything is homemade.
The beet and the asparagus are fresh from the garden and the field. The olive oil is from our olive trees. The brandy is also homemade, from our plums. No additives, no pesticides, no fertilizers.
We really enjoy living in the Philippines. Still, we just can’t wait to go back home and live there.
Have our own garden, few hens, maybe a goat or two. And a donkey! I just love donkeys.
