Hello from the past! November was sort of a strange month, also that went by really quickly and involved lots of squash but sadly no pumpkin pie. (Not for lack of pumpkin pie mix- thanks UB!) Actually due to a lack of a funktioning oven, with moving and all.

Spaghetti squash, which Milo missed out on and as far as I know has never experienced. He is skeptical. I know the truth about it and I love it. Luckily I found a one-person sized squash at the market.

Milo bought a celery root so I decided to make a salad.

For reference, this is how the celery salad from Alsace looks, finely shredded with a bit of cream.

My shredder doesn’t go that small, but I made due. Mixed with carrots and seasoned simply with olive oil, salt and pepper.

I shredded a quarter of it and had enough for lunch the next day plus a snack with garbonzos mixed in. That root multiplies when you shred it, just fyi.

In the spirit of pumpkin, I roasted one just for the heck of it.

Since I discovered that I am (I think) lactose intolerant (don’t cry for me, goat cheese in small portions seems to be okay, it is the milk and yogurt that gets me) I have been eating my muesli with soy milk, which is still really good.

Milo brought me a grapefruit from Zadar. The little tree had two giant fruits! Which tasted very lemony and bitter! But it is the thought that counts, let us not forget.

Typical salad that I have been consuming happily and regularly since summer, this one with a bit of chevre…taking a walk on the wild side.

I made a tea advent calender this year – a different variety every day with a little inspirational quote to boot! Due to the strange living/moving/chaos of December, we managed to úse it on approximately three days. Fear not, the tea will not go to waste.

And now, on to December! Which is exciting because it actually STILL IS December. Woohoo!
