what's for lunch?

Yes. What IS for lunch?
This is not my kitchen counter but one I totally, totally love. 
Do you see that very handsome oil container? I bought it myself as a present and I have serious anti-drip oil container envy now. 
It is a well-known Catalan design (by Rafael Marquina) and I seriously need one for my kitchen. Next time I go home, I am getting myself one too. Lunch has to be well-dressed ;)

What is for lunch, then? Dunno. Not my kitchen.

Lots of corner views somewhere over here.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
That was my corner view, which I had ready last week, one week early. Basically because I cannot read and because I have the attention span of a mosquito. It said clearly on Francesca's post. Oh well.

However, this week you get the original corner view plus some free ninja sprouty and springy silliness. Both literally as well as figuratively.
Here goes:


What had I told you; both spring-like and stretchy at once (plus some blurry pics to boot.)

I noticed something going on in that right container when I entered the room and, upon inspection, it was clear my seedlings were making the earth move. Some feisty little contenders we have there. Hooray.
I had obviously covered the radish seeds with far too much soil and they were pushing it up (green-fingered ninja, not.) As it happens, I had also forgotten to label them, so it is good to see who is living where.
Cucumbers seem to be a tad cooler (how else could it be, ei?) However, I had a peek and they will hopefully be joining their neighbours soon enough.

So, what's for lunch? Radish-cucumber salad, anyone?

  4. I have oil container envy too now: we just bring the olive oil bottle to the table, never thought about a stylish catalan container! I like your window sill vegetable garden.

  21. Radish cucumber salad sounds great.
    Now I have radish sprout envy. You made me wanna grow some!!
    I also love the elegance of your counter photo.
    And the whole idea of a "counter photo", could be like a counter culture, and very Ninja-cutting-edge-esque:))
    Happy, Golden Week to you!

    xo
