Playground workout

The moms among you know that dilemma: there is almost no time left for oneself not to mention time to work out. But I discovered a great gym: the playground. It’s great because I am often there with my kids anyway and it’s for free. Of course I don’t have a planned through playground workout but I am geting out of breath and then I feel great afterwards.

Das Schwein – a first class wine bar!

In addition the interior of the wine bar was very stylish and the staff extremely nice and well informed. Even though the das Schwein is a wine bar a visit is not only worth it because of the drinkable but also because of the edible delicacies.

Ever since I tasted an unusual combination of sweet potatoes and figs at a friends place I am addicted to it. And so are our barbecue guests by the way. In addition the best side dish is fast to prepare and looks really nice as well.
