Pita Party

It has been one of those weeks, where everything goes fast and you feel like it is still Monday when actually, it is already Saturday. I have been reading and studying for my midterms and I’m almost ready with my master! Time flies! I feel nowhere near smart enough to finish, but after the exams there is just a master thesis left and that is it. While I have been slaving away with reading articles and books, Julia has been crazy busy with her secret projects and has been doing all kinds of cool stuff. She’s been organising meetups, recipe tests, making ebooks and has been cooking a lot!

I have seen pictures of her cooking all kinds of good stuff and I really wish I could have been there (to eat all the things!). I am enjoying all the pictures we get back from the recipe testers though. It is so nice to see all of you cooking and sharing what you have made. So keep it up! And if you have made something else from the blog, please tag us in your Instagram /Facebook picture or send us a message, we really love seeing it!

So let’s talk about this ‘pita party’. Of course Julia and me took the time to cook together as well. I have recently moved to a new apartment in Copenhagen and the kitchen! Oh. that. kitchen. I love it. It is big, and it has a kitchen island and even a dishwasher! So we have been taking advantage of this fact by cooking many things and making a lot of dishes. One of these things was three different kinds of topping options for your pita bread. And it is so hard to pick a favorite! Now I’m going to have myself another Pita Party, wishing all the exams are over soon.
