Unexpectedly, parsnips are sweeter than carrots and J really loves their flavors. He quickly fell in love with these roots. If your are a parsnip skeptic, like a huge number of people are, give them a try, they taste great. Last week at the farmers' market, I had a parsnip apple soup for lunch, and it was divine!

J couldn't wait until his porrige was cooled down. This meal is just his favorite and for me, semolina porridge equals happy child. I remember my mum standing in the kitchen, whisking with a wire whisk just like me today. As a kindergarten kid, I always enjoyed my semolina porridge in a soup plate sprinkled with a little Benco. I think, my mum added some sugar, too, and I loved it when she forgot to stir the porridge and it went lumpy. The best part of eating my porridge was the first spoon cracking the skin on the surface. Today, I'm impatiently waiting for J's leftovers, but there are hardly any.

Baby food is easy to make and cooking for my seven-month-old little fellow is a pleasure! J already sits up and plays happily with his toys. He's also crawling well and very fast, too, which allows him to explore his surroundings. Our flat needs to get child-proofed – what a challenge!
A couple of weeks ago, we headed out to the countryside and had a very belated birthday lunch with my sister in-law. Afterwards, we took a walk in the drizzling rain and came back to the cozy restaurant for coffee and cakes. As you can see in the last picture, my dad was very, very kind to me. From his trip to Zurich, he brought home some marvellous Luxemburgerli from Confiserie Sprüngli.
