Happy Friday, I hope you all had a great week! Mine was busy with new client meetings and traveling around… I cannot wait to sleep in, attend a birthday party tomorrow evening and maybe go for a long bicycle tour on Sunday afternoon.

Here are 3 things making me happy:

Happy Friday! I really enjoyed this week, on Monday we celebrated Swiss National Day with friends, then my parents came for a couple of days and I somehow managed to do some work and start to get ready for my US trip (leaving for Florida on Tuesday!!!)…

Here are 3 things making me happy:

Loved being in Zurich (my hometown) last Sunday

pea & coconut gazpacho

simple and chic blog pea and coconut gazpacho 5

I saw a pea recipe in a magazine a couple of weeks ago and loved the idea to use peas (I never eat peas) and because it is warm already, I wanted to do something fresh… This super simple no-cooking recipe is just perfect!

Pea & coconut gazpacho

For 4 person you will need

300gr of fresh or frozen peas (I used frozen ones)

3dl of hot vegetable broth

curry powder, salt, pepper, olive oil

Mix your peas with the coconut milk and broth until it is smooth. Add curry powder, salt and pepper to taste. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours and sprinkle some olive oil on top when serving… voilà, can’t get easier than that!

super fresh and healty summer salad 8I made this yummy little salad a couple of weeks ago, with this heat it is impossible to eat anything else that fresh fruit, veggies and drink plenty (rosé spritz is my new very refreshing to-go cocktail)…

1 Cantaloupe melon

1/2 of a small watermelon (it’s up do you if you want to put more really)

2 avocado

1 spring onion

fresh basile, parsley, cilentro

juice of one lemon, good olive oil (and a bit of balsamic vinegar if you want)

Cut all the ingredients, mix well, add the juice, oil (and vinegar). Put in the fridge for one hour before serving so that the flavors have time to mix… super DELISH!
