Rocket miso pesto butter Semolina

Rocket miso pesto butter Semolina with roasted tomatoes is such a beautiful dish. It took no more than twenty minutes to make this whole complete dish that can be enjoyed all on it’s own or as a side dish for the festive season ahead. The cherry vine tomatoes are sweet and tangy perfect with the creaminess of the semolina.

After a pretty extensive vacation of walking, we are pretty happy to put our feet up for a little while. One thing or most things we do we have to consider our little munchkin.

Talking about comfort, we have been home since Saturday and I am relieved to be home. After a pretty extensive vacation of walking, we are pretty happy to put our feet up for a little while. One thing or most things we do we have to consider our little munchkin. The weather is not playing along and he gets pretty bored pretty soon and watching television is a big no during the day. But what to do? It was so amazing for us in Copenhagen just for the fact that it was so family friendly. There are parks right over the city with toys and bikes for the kids to play with.

So cool t that the fact is they are there for anyone to use. Not to mention the that local transport is by bike. Your day would start (as a kid) rode by your parents to and fro from school and to do shopping. Chats will be made and breakfast will be enjoyed via bike ride.

This was beyond cute. It’s so awesome to see different cultures just for the fact that you get to appreciate all they have and all you have in your own culture. You get to take a few things home, not just souvenirs for that matter, but real lessons to adjust your life. I’ll get around to posting our trip to Copenhagen, there is so much I want to say, but right now I’m just happy to be out of that cold weather, or not so cold weather. It’s freezing over there people, like in really. I’ll take the wind and wet weather over here any day.

So comfort food is where it’s at and it feels as though winter is super long every year for us, just because our “summer” vacation lands right slap bang in the middle of South African winter time. Great timing hey, so that’s why comfort food, cozy food has been my jam for the past five years. I have learned a lot about cooking, I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but you know what I have improved and that is something to be happy about. Some recipes I have sticked to for so long just because it was comfortable. I have certainly climbed little by little out of my comfort zone. Cooking should be an adventure after all!

So here is a recipe I think you’ll like too. Not only is this dish super easy, it’s pretty impressive too, don’t you think?
