‘It feels like summer is here to stay’
We had the start of a summer party this friday with a few of my girlfriends to welcome the warm long and light evenings. We spent time on the balcony (where I had just panted flowers and herbs) as the weather was so amazing, had some rosé and canapés and later went out to town. It was an amazing day, lots of laughter, happy tears and girl bonding! Everything is in life at the moment, the cherry trees blossomed last week and now the apple trees have opened into beautiful flowers. I’ve also kicked off golf season and summer has really sprung into full force in Finland. It has actually been one of the warmest country’s in Europe at the moment, which feels totally surreal. On Saturday my hubby and I took a drive to the countryside and had a picnic in a meadow and spent time on the golf couse and with Bella. During the evenings I’m craving for a creamy feta and watermelon salad that has lots of avocado and parsley. For the dressing, mix a bit of lemon juice, mayonnaise and tangy mustard. This is the easiest summer salad you can wipe up in a few minutes! You can also substitute parsley for mint and add pomegranate seeds into the dish.
