“I still may not know what I want to be when I grow up but I do know that someday I want to live in a house filled with my books and travel souvenirs. And the walls that aren’t covered in bookshelves will be covered with photos of my family and friends. When I leave the house I will be going to a job I love, and I’ll return to a person I love. So, that’s the dream I’m working on.”

Since sowing my first seeds for 2015 on the last day of February, a lot has happened in my little nursery: Some seeds have grown into little plants, some have not. Generally, the tomatoes seem sturdier than the rest and so far have been the most successful, while my chili and capsicum varieties have mostly died.

Being a lustful lover of all things avocado, guacamole has been a fundamental staple of my diet ever since I first gave it a go. For me, the avocado has to be creamy with chunks of tomato give it texture and an ample amount of garlic and different sorts of pepper spice it up while fresh lime juice is responsible for that tangy aftertaste.

Last Friday was my birthday and I basically spent the whole weekend celebrating it (which explains why there was no Sunday post last week). In fact, I have yet to meet some of my closest friends so the partying will continue until at least Easter (by which time we’ll already be preparing for Mr A’s birthday). Continue reading Aliciouslife: My birthday weekend
After my recent, successful hunt for wild garlic I suddenly had this beautiful, luscious pile of leafy greens to work with – and work with it I did. The other Sunday I spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen, cooking up a storm and enjoying myself immensely at it. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Wild garlic galore
“Do more of what makes you happy”
As self-evident as this sounds it often isn’t.
It should be! Continue reading Aliciousquotes: Do more of what makes you happy
Whenever you travel you will come across places that are disappointing in the way that they don’t live up to the high expectations you had of them (for myself, such places were Paris or Cinque Terre in Italy). They live off legends created by films or literature and end up being neither unique nor overly special once you visit.
However, you will also find yourself in locations you had no clear expectations of or places that people tend to voluntarily miss out on their travels because they’ve heard – usually from someone who’s never been – that these places are dull/ dangerous/ not worth getting off the bus. Suddenly you will wish you had more time or you are going to completely ruin your travel schedule as you’ll spend a lot more time there than you had planned.

One pot pasta looks oh-so-beautiful on so many bloggers’ Instagram photos. The different colours of the pasta, tomatoes, onion and basil make it delicious to the eye and generally, pasta is always a good idea. Mr A seemed to agree when we compiled last week’s meal plan and there it was: Friday – One pot pasta. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: One pot pasta
At some point I must have mentioned to Mum that once she retired I’d take her to New York. Only recently she remembered it and since she’ll retire with the end of the school year, we started discussing vague travel plans. And: We’re going to travel to New York City together!!! Continue reading Alicioustravels: New York City
Along with the first flowers telling us that winter is over and, yes, spring is finally here, fresh leaves of wild garlic have been featuring on Instagram for the last week. For a lover of all things garlic like myself this meant that wild garlic had to be found and harvested asap. Because I’m a nice person (yes, that’s fishing for compliments here) I’ll tell you my favourite spots to find it. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Wild Garlic
