Quite often, best things in life come unexpectedly and suddenly. It is that moment when you go “OMG, what has just happened?? Wow, can’t believe it! Pinch pinch!”. Then you pinch yourself to realize it is truly happening and life in all its’ shades is sooo amazing!
This exact moment
manifested in my kitchen recently when tasting one of the yummiest pasta sauces
ever. And trust me, living in the Western Mediterranean, I have tasted many.
sweet childhood days when your mum would make you a soothing and heart-warming
DIY meal? The one which would cast all of your worries away and lighten up your
heart after just first bite? With a big loving smile on her face, she would
look at you emptying the plate, and reward you with a soft kiss or a cuddle of
joy after the last bite…
There is no
other feeling in the World that could beat mama’s TLC! I am sure that these
loving memories are giving you beautiful chills down the spine right now…
Three eventful decades later, on a grey and rainy Sunday morning, this exact flashback took me over. A bit sentimental and fragile, I felt a need for something heart-warming & soothing, something that would make me move mountains again. One glimpse around the kitchen was enough for creation of this ultimate “mama’s TLC” style meal. It is truly miraculous what kind of effect one ripe banana, an apple and some oats can have on your body, mind & soul. A true quick fix mood booster guaranteed 🙂
sooo happy to share my latest kitchen breakthrough; a meal which instantly
became my weekly (nearly daily) menu must do! For the last couple of weeks I
keep blending away while singing “I just can’t have enough…” with a big smile
on my face. And after the last lick (yes, I admit licking my plate), I start
getting chills down my spine thinking: “Man, this is nearly better than s…”.
What exactly happens when you have few spare rocket leaves & carrots in the fridge, and are sooo sick of making yet another salad? And then you spot a block of feta cheese in the corner, waiving at you to remind you of an expiry date due in couple of days? Well, this is the moment when a new cool spread idea of epic proportions starts kicking in! 🙂 Are you ready for the “it” spread recipe of this spring/summer season?

I know, it all sounds too good, but in this case, it is true!
