I hope you are all having a fantastic first September weekend! I know I have with a lovely day out visiting Mandelmanns Trädgårdar yesterday (stay tuned for a post all about it) followed by dog cuddles galore and a yummy sleep in this morning. Lately I’ve been trying to separate the week days from the weekend to make a clearer difference between work and play/restoration time. It is kind of working so far and I’d love to hear your tips for creating that invisible line, what do you do to make the weekend special?
One thing that makes a significant difference for me is spending a little more time and care preparing special meals on the weekend. Having dessert is another thing that makes daily life seem a little more festive and the weekend feel a little more sacred in my opinion. The dessert I want to share with you today is equally suitable for Wednesday night as Saturday evening and it’s a very low maintenance raspberry tofu pudding that only requires five ingredients.
Whilst it might be tempting to opt for more elaborate recipes on the weekend and indeed that’s what they’re there for right?! There are some occasions when you just want to chill but still want that fanciful trim to your weekend meal and that’s when recipes like these are gold. Or when you have an impromptu dinner party and quickly have to make up a meal that seems worthy of your friends and family. But as I already said it is also the perfect week day treat since it is rather effortless and pretty wholesome.
Now I’m off to continue my successful weekend with a bit of cleaning, haha. To be honest those are the things weekends are for too and when Monday comes and I wake up to a shiny home it makes it so much easier to reply to those e-mails and get creative in the kitchen. I wish you the best of Sundays and I hope you’ll enjoy the recipe! x
