Lime and Coconut Pie

Finally a day off and full of cooking of course! But I did something very good woke up at 8 o’clock and went to college for the first time after a month, well was the last class after all!

I feel a bit sentimental now, well maybe is the pressure of growing up…!! Ah as Magda said today …”I am not ready to grow up yet” indeed just because four years of college passed that does not mean that you need to man up, work on your career and plan a family and so on! The only thing I have on my agenda is to go to New Zealand! So today I had my best cirle of friends over for dinner and I made this pie ;-) and this is the song of the day…

Happy Hipster Day Everyone!
