How are things going? Are you enjoying your summer? Or winter – depending on where you are in the world.
It’s hot as heck here in Dubai let me tell you. I’m hiding indoors as much as possible and our aircon bill is through the roof!
But what can you do when the average temperature is 113°F (45°C). And honestly I have seen it hit 122°F (50°C) before.
And going to the beach isn’t a good plan because you can’t cool off in the ocean, since that turns into the temperature of a hot bath – reaching 99°F (37°C). It really feels weird, especially when there’s waves, like after a sandstorm, then you’re crashing about in these hot water waves. So odd.
So I’m not even going to the beach right now and usually the beach makes me very happy.
This is my favorite Dubai beach.
So it’s a good thing that we’re taking a holiday next month to South Africa, where we will arrive during winter! Ah!!! Honestly when you live in endless summer, you find yourself longing for a good winter. I am so looking forward to wearing a coat and some boots I tell you!
Anyway so it’s that time again when we do a recap of the month and all the good foodie things we did and take a sneak peek at what’s coming up in July!
So let’s take a look at what we did in June.
1.Crunchy Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies // 2. Easy Vegan Dinner Rolls // 3. Vegan Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bark // 4. Matcha Green Tea Smoothie // 5. Roasted Butternut and Avocado Salad // 6. Vegan Chocolate Crunch Bars // 7. Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting // 8. Raspberry Chia Smoothie // 9. Vegan Salted Caramel Ice Cream //
Which ones have you tried so far? Favorites? That roasted butternut and avocado salad was so amazing I want to make it again right now! And I am still dreaming of that fruit and nut chocolate bark! But I think my total fave was the salted caramel ice cream. Ohhh Myyyy!
Yay! Two new recipe videos went up this month! They are:
Coming up in July!
Oh my! There is some amazing stuff coming in July. I am very excited! Sneak peek below!
What we’re watching
Well along with many millions of others, we’re disappointed that we have to wait another whole year for Game of Thrones to return!
We binge watched our way through season 4 of ‘Orange Is The New Black’ and got very involved, and very angry (if you’ve watched it you know what I mean!). Can’t wait for season 5!
And now we’re currently involved in a binge session of the latest season of House of Cards. We’re about half way through. And honestly it’s a really good show and you get really into it, but Jaye and I were saying, you just don’t know who to root for in this show, almost everyone is so damn evil! Hahaha.
Frankie and Ernie
Frankie and Ernie have been having a really good time enjoying their lives. Revelling in enjoyment really. Cats know how to be in the zone! Really IN the moment! Here’s a couple of cute moments…
Ernie does this thing where he comes and lies on your hip when you’re sleeping on your side. I think it’s SO cute, as it’s not the best position really, he has to really perch there and balance himself, but he always does it.
And when you turn over, he’ll position himself on the other hip. Or if you’re lying on your back, he’ll perch himself on your chest. We always joke that he takes his ecstasy pill at night because it’s usually when you’re trying to sleep that he brings the love big time.
Here he is on Jaye’s hip.
Hope you had a brilliant June! And for all American readers, hope you’re having a fabulous 4th of July weekend!
