So yesterday I got some bad news, I got to know that the company where I worked for the past two years has called for bankruptcy. I think it’s a combination of both bad sales for the past months and covid-19. Even though it hurts and scares me, we will survive this, as a family you always make it work somehow, not for yourself but for your kids. One door closes and the next one opens, right?! , I’m looking it to the future with open heart and eyes. And I know I’m not the only one loosing my job in this hard times, but we all have to be strong, keep our heads up high, it’s all going to be okey in the end!
The funny thing is that when we was in Tenerife last time we was speaking about moving there, or not really moving, but spend a longer time on the island ( Im happy we didn’t because of how the world is looking right now!) but then the plan was for me to quit my job, so somewhere back in my head I already planed not to stay there.
It’s going to be okey ❤️
I LOVE making food and today I made such an easy, healthy and delicious lunch, that even could go as a dinner!
All you need is; green and red lentils that you boil together in tomato sauce, season with a lot of curry , salt and pepper and let boil until the lentils are done. Chop sweet potato, onion, carrot, broccoli and mix together with bean sprouts, chickpeas, one piece of garlic and some oil and put in oven for about 25 minutes. And then enjoy a lovely lunch 🙂
Today we celebrate “fettisdagen” in Sweden. That means that we eat this special buns with cream and almond paste, and they are extremely delicious! Of course I had to make them vegan, and that was so easy, you just have to change out the butter and cream to vegan options!
All you need for these cream buns is:
25 g yeast
2 dl almond milk
1/2 dl sugar
1 tbs cardamon
5 1/2 dl flour
75 g vegan butter
Mix all of those things together well and let rise for one hour.
Make 12 small pieces and roll to buns and let rice under a towel for 30 minutes. Brush them with almond milk and put them in oven for 10 minutes in 225 degrees.
Take the buns out and let them get cold before you take off a small piece from the top on every bun.
Take out a little bit from every buns so you get a hole in them and fill them with a mix of:
The inside from the bun
3/4 dl Almond milk
200 g almond paste
Top every bund with vegan whipped cream and put the small top back on and there you have 12 delicious cream buns 🙂
My weekends nowadays usually consists of working and attending kids birthday party’s. Who knew so many kids could have birthday in February 🙈 Anyway, today me and Elias went to one of his pre school friends birthday party, he lives in the same neighborhood as us, so it was close to just walk there.
The kids had so much fun, and it’s amazing to see Elias with all of his friends ❤️
After we came back home I made dinner, and Adam fell asleep all of the sudden in the sofa, he woke up this morning with an eye infection in both his eyes, poor little guy, so he was so tired but hopefully he will wake up feeling better tomorrow even though he will have to stay home for a few days. Even if Adam is sick we had an amazing Sunday but now I’m prepared for a new week with new goals 🥰
Today it’s Valentine’s Day and me and the boys are having an cozy night infront off the tv with popcorn, candy, soda, donuts and watching Alvin and the chipmunks. I could’t wish for a better Valentine’s Day, and later Jawad is coming home and me and him will have a late dinner together 🙂 Now it’s time to join the boys ❤️
I’m feeling so focused right now, I want to change my life to the better, I’m already a vegan but like everyone else I need that little bit of extra and that means starting to train. Today after I left the boys for preschool I took a power walk, it felt so nice just walking and listening to music, and believe it or not, I already feel like a new person with more energy.
Today Adam turned 3 years old. It’s quite unbelievable that he has been a part of our family for three years. It feels like I got him on my chest yesterday. I really think that time goes by so quickly, especially after having kids!
Happy birthday to my little big boy, I love you to the moon and back ❤️
Todays dinner was really easy to make and so yummy!
Boil pasta, cut onion, zucchini, eggplant and red pepper and fry it together, add tomato sauce and some vegan cooking cream and let it boil add salt, pepper and barbecue spice and then mix it with the pasta, and voilá you have a vegan dinner 🥰
The past three days I been having pain in my lower back, and this morning I couldn’t stand the pain anymore, So I called the health centre, but they had no time for me, so she told me to go to the ER in the city, so I did. When I came there they was in shock why the health centre would send me there, so they sent me to another smaller ER…So much traveling around when you are in pain, and in the end I didn’t actually get any help, more than that I need to book a time with an physiotherapist and start to train in the gym.
So I guess it’s time for a change and start to workout 🙈
On Thursday Adam had his 3 years control at the doctors. Ever since Adam started preschool he’s been really sad every morning when I leave him, witch is breaking my heart every time, and he is not speaking to either his teachers or friends, the only times he is speaking in school, to the teachers, is when me or Elias is with him. In the beginning when he started there we thought it was because he was shy, but two weeks ago one of hes teachers stoped me and said that she is worried about him, so I decides to speak with his doctor, and she said its nothing wrong with him. The first thing she said was that she see no signs of autism in him (witch was a big relief, but then again if he would have it I would still love him the same!) and she said that he’s probably just one of those kids that wants to be alone because he is shy, because at home his speaking and playing so much. She also said that maybe he’s teachers are pushing him in the wrong way and making him feel uncomfortable, because the other day when I was speaking to Elias teacher about this, she was in chock because Adam been speaking to her.
Elias was also really shy when he was younger, and he only wanted to hang around he’s teachers until like a year ago when he’s friends started to be really important for him. The thing is I was just exactly like Adam when I was a kid, its actually crazy to se what your kids gets from you.
I am anyway going to contact a psychologist just to ask for some guidens in this case, because I just want the best for my little boy ❤️
