Relaxing Weekend

IMG_5283

Having read my supervisors’ feedback on my work, it seems I have managed to get over the first hurdle of my PhD studies. Now I can finally relax a bit and plan what I need to do by when over the next two months.

This morning, I read a novel (without a deadline, summary and references!) and ironed our 14 work shirts that were left after washing over the past two weeks.

After noticing that I was doing housework, Luca started cleaning the whole bathroom.

After ironing, I baked ‘cheese and pea muffins’ which I have wanted to make for a long time. When I travelled to Venice with Luca in April, we were invited to a lunch party at his relative’s house. His cousin’s wife made us the pea muffins for a starter, which was really, really delicious! All of her home-cooking was fantastic. When we left at the end of the party, she gave me the rest of the muffins, which we had with wine at our accommodation for dinner.

I found many recipes of savoury pea muffins online and tried one of them today. My muffins didn’t taste bad but they did not rise well. Maybe I added too many peas. I need to improve my muffin baking skills, but more than anything else, I am happy to try the recipe and to have such a relaxing and peaceful weekend!
