Roasted Spinach + Ricotta Stuffed Bell Peppers ///
Somehow we always manage to find time to cook together with J. during the weekends. Cooking is the kind of hobby that gives us the opportunity to have a bit of ‘quality time’ with each other. Nothing fancy or complicated, just ‘Lunch together’, chatting, listening some music or simply watching that movie we’ve been planning to watch for a while. Luckily Lia is a great napper, and she loves taking her naps on time! And that’s the moment we snick into the kitchen and start chopping, mixing, boiling, etc. That’s our moment! Sharing the kitchen and cooking together as new parents is always fun for us, particularly because J. and I tend to forget to use our regular tone of voice and start to whisper to each other while in the kitchen! Thinking that Lia is going to wake up! Until we realize that she has been ‘happily – deeply- napping’ during the entire time of our home cooking ‘date lunch adventure’. 

So there’s always something funny to laugh about,  and even though finding a bit of time to talk or have a moment of lazy thoughts and countless cups of tea (like we used to in our previous non-parent- life :)), we get to the conclusion that even with all the demands and responsibilities we have, like most parents. We couldn’t have it any other way. To share with each other as much as we could to make every second precious is everything in our lives. And we won’t change what we have for anything in the world. So here it is one of our lunches, ‘Roasted Bell Peppers with Spinach and Ricotta’! We make this  one often, just because is very easy; it doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare, and it looks great!  

To Love + Family, friends. Happy Valentine’s Day!
