Diversity is a hot topic. Should we take in more or less refugees? Do we want more or less international cooperation? And should borders that have been opened in recent decades be closed again? Interestingly enough, religion is often mentioned as a big theme in the debate surrounding diversity. ‘Islam is a violent and hateful religion.’ ‘Our Judeo-Christian tradition is under threat.’
Can I call this a receipe? I’m not sure – that’s how easy this is. As we are going away for the weekend I literally threw together some leftovers from the fridge and created this. It tastes really good, definitely some steps above the average ‘let’s throw this shit together’ kinda meal, and much more like comfort food than the healthy lunch it really is. Also: greek yoghurt + spicy
In light of me wanting to put more focus on my writing, even though an actual book might not be in the works just yet, I have decided to bring a new column to the blog: Tales on Tuesday. Because a little explanation might be in order, here goes:

My parents came over and with a little (a lotta) help from my dad who actually knows how to do it, the four of us did all of the plastering ourselves. I feel like such a pro now. A lot of other work
I’ve been seeing beautiful marquee letters inspired lamps all over Pinterest for a while, and decided it was time to try my hand at one. Since moving in with the boyfriend I’ve been using the globe that was a birthday present long ago in what probably were my early teens (or even before that?).
