To say it has been hot the last few days is an understatement. Today, 26 June 2019, has been the hottest day of the years so far. 37 degrees celsius.

The worst thing about the hot weather is that you cannot eat anything. I try to eat in the morning and then wait until it’s late in the evening to eat again. Currently, having lunch, especially a hot lunch, is a big no-no.

That does not, however, mean that I do not have my sweet tooth. I still love to snack on things and I especially enjoy desserts. Cold desserts, to be specific.

One of my all-time favourite desserts is cheesecake. Cold cheesecake with fresh fruit. Cherries, strawberries etc. all go incredibly well with a beautiful, cold slice of cheesecake.
