Sanapari, joka ei ehkä ensimmäisenä tulisi mieleen, Rovaniemi ja meksikolainen ruoka.
Kirjakuvausmatkamme vei meidät sattumien kautta Rovaniemen uuteen meksikolaiseen Yuca-ravintolaan. Heti ravintolaan astuessa tarkan visualistin silmä lepäsi raikkaan rauhallisessa, mutta silti persoonallisessa ja hauskassa sisustuksessa.
En ole ollut mikään suurin meksikolaisruoan fani, sillä usein se on ravintoloissa raskasta, rasvaista ja jopa hieman tunkkaista. No, näin ei todellakaan ollut tällä kertaa. Tätä ruokaa kannattaa ehdottomasti käydä maistamassa, vaikka vähän pidemmänkin matkan päästä!

Kaikki valmistetaan Yucassa alusta alkaen. Niin maissilastut ja tortillat, mausteinen kanaliemi kuin ananas-kookosmehukin tehdään itse, ja ero tavalliseen on huomattava. Ihanan raikkaista annoksista omat suosikkini olivat sienillä täytetyt tacot (kauden sieniä, creme fraichea, fetaa ja morita-chiliöljyä), maissilastut guacamolella ja pico de gallolla (guacamolea olisi voinut syödä lusikalla suoraan kulhosta) sekä mausteinen tortilla-keitto (mausteinen kanaliemi, maissilastuja, sipulia, creme fraichea, fetaa ja avokadoa). Ihaninta hyvässä ravintolassa syödessä on herkuttelun lisäksi inspiroituminen. Kun jotain haluaa kokeilla kotona, on ruoka sopivan simppeliä sekä superherkullista ja valmistettu arkisista mutta laadukkaista raaka-aineista.

Olisiko siis hulluutta matkustaa uudestaan Rovaniemelle pelkän ruoan takia? Ei, jos ruoka on näin hyvää, edullista, raikasta ja aitoa meksikolaista.

  • Sweater weather!
❄️
I’ve been here under 24 hours, but I feel so relaxed and all stress is gone! It looks like wonderland here, the air is so fresh and it’s quiet everywhere.
❄️
For me it’s essential to get away from the city once in a while. Being in the middle of nature is like therapy for me. Do you feel the same? Does nature lower your stress levels?
  • One from last summer. I’m heading to north today and I can’t wait to spend a whole week there! It will be under -20C but I don’t mind the cold when it’s so beautiful there!
🌿
One reason why I love Finland so much is that we have seasons. Summers are warm and green, autumns are beautiful and colourful (and I love those rainy and dark evenings too) and winters are always pretty magical. And although springs can be cold and muddy, it’s still exciting to see when the nature is starting to bloom again. Do you have a favourite season?✨
  • I hope you’ve had a relaxing Sunday! ✨
My day has been all about cleaning and packing (not a big fan of either one) but oh how I love to come back from a trip to clean and beautiful home.
🧹
How do you feel about cleaning? I have two different sides in me, the one that tries to avoid cleaning as much as possible and the other one who is a neurotic organiser. You remember Monica from Friends? Yeah, that’s me when I’m cleaning. But right now I’m happy the second one took over today - it’s much easier to focus and work in beautiful space!
🌸
And these beautiful flowers were arranged by @Laura.syvaniemi for Blossom book.
  • I feel like my brain has way too many tabs open right now. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Do you know that feeling? When you’re so excited and motivated about so many things that it can actually turn into frustration and anxiety when you can’t focus on one thing at a time. What’s your solution when your mind is on overdrive?
☁️
My way to calm my mind is to write all those thoughts on paper (no matter if it’s about work or personal life), so I don’t have to be afraid of forgetting something. Then it’s easier to focus on one thing at a time.

  • “It doesn’t matter what others are doing. It matters what you are doing.”
✨
We all compare ourselves to others but sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is to stop thinking what others are doing. If someone is better or more successful. If someone is having something you’ve always wanted. It’s hard, but when I’ve learned to forget that, I’ve saved so much energy. When I only focus on what I’m doing and what I value the most, the result is better and I’m closer to achieving my own goals. ✨
Now I’m ready for a busy weekend with work because I’m spending my next week in Lapland! Any plans for the weekend?
  • There are days when the inspiration for something is totally lost and it can be really frustrating. This week I’ve been so excited about photography, but not that inspired about cooking. But hey, you just can’t feel creative everyday and you shouldn’t blame yourself for that. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Forcing it never helps. But that’s perfect time for becoming inspired by other creative people! So, what are your favourite savoury recipes for busy work days right now?
🌿
Also, the recipe you voted for is now in my stories! Easy crispy potatoes from my next cookbook. Remember to save the recipe for later! ☝🏻
  • Look at these beautiful creatures! 🐑
I always get so much energy from spending time with animals. Usually with my family’s dog but also with other ones, like this summer afternoon I spent with the lambs of @tiirinkosken_tehdas . I don’t know what it is, but with animals I can’t feel myself anything else than calm and happy. Do you know what I mean?
✨
That’s also one reason why I’m waiting for my next week’s trip even more – I can spend the whole week with my favourite dog!
