This is Halloween

Posted on / Leave a comment

Hi all!

I know it’s been a while, but it has taken me longer than expected to get used to being a mommy with a fulltime job. I’m still not ok with being away from home for such a long time, but I guess that’s just the way it has to be.

On a happier note, we’ve just had our first Halloween with Jamie!
We dressed him up and had lots of fun doing a mini photoshoot of our little skunk.

I also made some Pumpkin Soup and Pumpkin Pie (the recipes of which you will find here soon).
We had a quiet evening but felt really blessed to be able to spend some time with our little family.

How did you spend your Halloween?

XOXO

For the Love of Sushi II – Sushi Shop

Posted on / Leave a comment

Last Sunday I went on another Sushi date with my best friend.
I wanted to try something different so we went to the Sushi Shop in the Kammenstraat in Antwerp.

On Sunday most of the shops are closed, so it was really quiet. Making a reservation was not really needed at this time (we were the only ones there). We went around 1pm and ordered some rolls. I went with the summer vibe and ordered the ones with mango (DELICIOUS), pomegranate and papaya (limited summer edition). The Mango Tango roll was my favourite. It just adds a sweet and fresh touch, and as you all know, I am a lover of all things sweet… The Maki Tazuna roll was the one with pomegranate, this was also very good but to my taste had a little bit too much ginger in it. And last but not least: the Spicy Salmon & Papaya Spring Roll. I like papaya so I was a little bit disappointed not to find any inside. I mean, I didn’t dissect the rolls so maybe there was a tiny piece in there… But I didn’t see or taste any. The crunchy onion on top gave a really nice texture to the roll, so I wasn’t 100% bummed out about the missing papaya.

All in all I had a good experience here, and will definitely go back someday to try some of the other rolls. You can also order regular maki rolls with salmon or tuna etc. so if you’re not really adventurous when it comes to sushi, you’ll surely find something to your taste. This place is great for lunch, it also has lunch boxes ready for take-away. The shop closes at 3pm on Sundays, and reopens at 5pm. It took a while for our food to be brought to the table (even though we were the only ones there), so we barely finished in time. I definitely recommend coming earlier just to be sure. You can check out their website (Dutch or French) for the opening times and full menu.

On to the next sushi date!!

XOXO
