Squeeee!! Temperatures are going up and I don’t care that stuff sucks sometimes. I’m a happy girl.

Temperatures are going up to 20 degrees Celsius and I’m hoping that this ends the ‘winter’, I’ve been listening to Don Omar all day, just because his music makes me happy. And to add even more happiness to the situation, I get to spend more time with the Mr. Okey, the reason is the stress at work and me not trusting myself to get myself home in one piece, so the Mr. is going to adapt his working hours so he can join me on the drive home. I promised him dinner at a ‘meat’-restaurant for this. We might have our issue’s, but he can be quite the gentleman if he wants to ❤

Anyhow, this weather screams for lighter food and this recipe is perfect for the ‘nearly there’-days. It’s still comfort food because it’s a mash, but not to wintery because of the paksoi. I served mine with smoked bacon. Enjoy!!!

I served my portion with Smoked Tempeh from The Hobbit and the Mr’s portion with a beef sausage. I never had smoked tempeh before, but I’m kinda eager to try to make it myself. *makes mental note
