Quarter of a Century

Normally I'm not too keen to go around advertising my age. I guess it's a mixture of either feeling too old - when I'm around my younger classmates at school - or feeling not old enough - out in the working world and still feeling like a kid trying to keep up with the adults! But this year is different. Last month I celebrated the first milestone birthday since turning 18 and finally being old enough to drink vote.

Last month I turned 25!! (It sounds so much more epic when I say "quarter of a century" though, lol, don't you think?).

It's funny, when I was younger I used to say 25 was the perfect age - you're still young enough to enjoy the benefits of youth, but old enough to start being taken seriously. I can't say whether or not this is true just yet, but I'll let you know in a year if I was right ;p

In the meantime, here is a peek from my Sunday afternoon ...

{Some ingredients for our dinner - recipe via my new cookbook}

{The result: Tartine - an open-faced sandwich with homemade pesto & mushrooms - and tomatoes stuffed with pork and mashed potatoes}
**This meal was delicious, but next time I would follow the author's suggestion of pairing tartine with a nice home-made soup :) Miam, Miam!!
