Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)
May 29, 2013

Today I went to see the most fantastic modern ballet called “We’re not Waving – We’re Drowning” danced by dancers from the Royal Danish Theatre (incredible dancers). One of my very good friends had invited me to watch it with her – thank you so much Marie! It was a great experience. Actually we watched the general rehearsal – but that is almost the same as the actual show. Since it was the general rehearsal we already watched it at 12 O’ clock so we had the whole day left afterwards (the reading period for the exams has started so we could watch it in the school hours). So afterwards we went shopping and later on I went dancing ballet – all in all a perfect day!

The show was amazing. A very freaky show – but great! Gosh, those dancers are incredible. Also it was quite funny – strange costumes, weird music and also they talked during the show. I’ve never experienced that before but it made the show special – unique. On the whole a great show – but very freaky as well. Definitely an experience I’ll never forget.

To the right: Inside – just before the show (yep – that’s a house made of mirrors)

But before the show I just managed to make a lovely pesto (yep – I’ll find the time for cooking everywhere). Since my dad bought some sundried tomatoes a week ago I’ve been wanting to make something with them. And since I love pesto (as in very very very much) I decided that that was what I wanted to make.

Sundried Tomato Pesto

1 jar – about 1 cup
  • 100 grams of sundried tomatoes (with herbs)
  • 40 g. almonds
  • 40 g. parmesan cheese (or other dry cheese)
  • 1 dl (a bit less than half a cup) olive oil
  • 1 tsp. coarse salt
Throw everything in a foodprocessor and blend until (almost) smooth (you’ll still want a little bit of lumps).
Serve with chicken – I just had this for dinner:
Grilled chicken with pesto on a bed of savoy cabbage (yeah, leftovers since I
came home from ballet quite late – but anyway, it was delicious!)
