Around the House in May [Through My Lens Nr. 241]

May is in full swing and everything is in full bloom. The garden has taken a life of its own because of the regular rains and humidity. It's almost like a jungle out here. Beni has been enjoying his time at home with all of us. We still don't get out that much, because of the current situation in the world, so I like to make home as cozy as possible. I have been cooking a lot. Recently I made a lentil, spinach and mushroom dish (i haven't even given it a name) that I like a lot. I love lentils and have been on the lookout for good alternatives to meat when it comes to protein (even though I am not a vegetarian). At night the house lights up and the colorful interior invites you back in. I haven't experienced much of spring. Summer is just around the corner.

Thank you all for joining me in another week of "Through My Lens". I am looking forward to your submissions this week. I hope you will have a good one!

Now I want to see what you have been up to. Link down below and share with the rest of us!

  1. Loved the post. Beautiful flowers. Yummy foods.
    Stay well. In India Lockdown extended till 31 May.

    1. Oh, hold on Rupam, it’s all for the greater good. I hope the situation in India will calm down. I’m following the situation regularly.

  2. ...Beni blends into his surroundings! Thanks for hosting and take care!

  3. It’s good to have your own garden - you get to see some of Spring’s beauty without leaving home! .. . We are staying home except for short walks (with masks on). And like you both of us are cooking a lot more and trying more meatless meals. It’s a good time to experiment!

    1. Glad you are staying safe and taking care of yourself. Meatless dishes are really great. I feel much better when I eat them.

  4. What a lovely home you have Mersad. Your lentil dish looks delicious and healthy. I also like lentil beans. Cute Beni steals the show, as always :)

    1. It was so good, and makes great cold leftovers!

  5. That looks great (the lentils) - I have 2 vegetarians but they're also fussy eaters (not so big on vegetables???).

  6. Beautiful backyard and yummy looking food. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.

  7. I love that peek inside your window. Looks lovely. I too seem to have lost a couple of months somewhere. Here autumn is closing and winter is on it's way - I am already looking forward to spring. Stay safe and thank you again for the link up.

  8. I liked the content on this site. Would like to visit again.
