Anne Frank's house. A very emotional moment for me, I'll be honest.
A casa de Anne Frank. Um momento muito emocional para mim, vou ser honesta.

No idea how this happened, it wasn't even night.
Não faço ideia de como isto aconteceu, nem era noite.

One of the best museums I've ever visited. Bought way too many postcards in this one.
Um dos melhores museus que já visitei. Comprei mesmo demasiados postais neste.

This kind of view really made me fall in love with this gorgeous city, and even consider learning Dutch so I could move there. No joke. What a magical place.
Este tipo de vista levou-me mesmo a ficar apaixonada por esta linda cidade, e até a considerar aprender Holandês para que pudesse mudar-me para lá. Não estou a brincar. Que sítio mágico.

These are clearly not the best photos ever. The film was well over its expiration date and I clearly made some mistakes while developing some of the rolls (water spots anyone?), but I still treasure these pictures immensely, as well as the memories of Amsterdam. When I was packing for this trip, I decided to risk it and take my new (used) Mju I, so these were all taken with it using either Kodak Gold 200 or Fujicolor Superia 400. Kodak is probably the ones with lines across, as I had this issue with another camera (therefore I'm assuming it was the film, not the cameras).

Não são as melhores fotografias de sempre, claramente. O filme estava super fora do prazo e fiz alguns erros na relevação dos rolos (marcas de água), mas mesmo assim guardo estas fotos no coração, assim como as memórias de Amesterdão. Usei uma Mju I usada, com filme Kodak Gold 200 ou Fujicolor Superia 400.

JOANA COOKS: CREAMY PUMPKIN SOUP

Pumpkin Cream Soup
Nothing screams more of winter than a creamy pumpkin soup. But wait, it's summer approaching, not winter, right? Well, to be honest I've just been craving a bit of warm food comfort so the fact that the sun is coming out stronger couldn't keep me away from this pumpkin soup.
Nada diz mais 'Inverno' que uma cremosa sopa de abóbora. Mas espera, é o Verão que se aproxima, não o Inverno, certo? Bom, para ser sincera eu tenho estado desesperada por um bocado de conforto de comida quentinha, portanto o facto de que o sol está a sair mais forte não me conseguiria manter longe desta sopa de abóbora.
Pumpkin Cream Soup

Pumpkin Cream Soup
Ingredientes
3 cups butternut squash
1 large potato
2 cups carrots
3 medium onions
2 cups green cabbage
1/2 Portuguese sausage 'farinheira'
Coriander
All purpose seasoning
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Cream cheese

Step by step
Sweat the onions in olive oil in a big pot. Once they are translucent, add the chopped butternut squash, potatoes and carrots. Cover the pot and let the vegetables cook down. When they are slightly brown on the outside, add the Portuguese sausage, the coriander  and the all purpose seasoning and salt and cover with water. Let it cook for about 30 minutes or until all the vegetables are falling apart. After take the pot off the hob and blend it all with an immersion blender. Put the pot back on the hob and add the green cabbage. Cover with the lid and let it cook for at least 20 minutes, depending on how hard the cabbage is. Once cooked, check if the seasoning is to taste and adjust accordingly. Serve the creamy soup with one or two teaspoons of cream cheese and a sprinkle of black pepper.

JOANA COOKS: YOGURT FRUIT BOWLS

Fruit Yogurt
I'm a big fruit and veggie consumer, so a typical breakfast for me is a fruit and veggie smoothie and something to snack on, or a bowl of yogurt with fruit and seeds. The strawberries here in London have been amazing so I've been putting them everywhere, including my yogurt bowls.
Sou uma grande consumidora de frutas e vegetais, portanto um pequeno-almoço típico para mim é um batido de fruta e vegetais com algo para comer, ou uma taça de iogurte com fruta e sementes. Os morangos aqui em Londres têm estado fantásticos, por isso tenho-os posto em todo lado, incluindo nas minhas taças de iogurte.
Fruit YogurtMy next goal is to make my own yogurt. Challenge accepted! Do you have any good recipes?
O meu próximo objetivo é fazer o meu próprio iogurte. Challenge accepted!
Têm algumas receitas boas?
