A coconut cream pie, scary dreams and happy turtles. {Ten On Tuesday}

Hallo meine Lieben,

how are you doing? I hope you are enjoying your week! Have you checked out our Three stories of going vegan on Celeste's blog yet?

I am linking up with Alyssa and you can do the same here.

1. You should all visit my friend Martha's blog Quick Cheap and Pretty because you can win a fantastic set of vegan make up brushes. Plus Martha is brilliant so you should visit her anyway. 

2. I realized that I don't really need that much sugar in my diet when I tried cutting out refined sugar for five days. I can drink my tea without sugar and I don't need any processed food with sugar in it. I did need a piece of vegan chocolate cake on Sunday.

3. Pretty generous. It is good to hear some good things once in a while: Dutch and Swedish lotteries make the largest donation ever ($21+ million) to fight rhino poaching. You can read more about it here

4. A couple of days ago I realized that I had only seen the first 15 minutes of Superbad which is why I decided that it was time to watch the full movie. And I have to say that I did not regret it. It seems like Daisy from Bones only accepts annoying roles. I was surprised to see her in that movie. 

5. Last night in my dream a girl tried to kill me with a hammer while I was in the basement searching for something. She did not succeed.

6. I don't know much about the meaning of dreams but people always try to kill me in my dreams (they never succeed and I am not scared) and I am sure it reflects that I read a lot of crime novels and watch a lot of Criminal Minds. 

7. I really like turtles a lot. They do make you happy. 

8. I don't want to have a funeral when I die. I hate funerals which I why I don't want people to bother with mine.

9. My next baking experiment will be a vegan coconut cream pie. I found the recipe on the Post Punk Kitchen blog and because I love anything coconutty I have to give it a try. 

10. I usually sleep with three blankets, fuzzy socks and a hot water bottle. I must have warm feet and it must be cozy otherwise I can't sleep. 

Happy Tuesday! Thanks for reading!


  1. isn't Superbad hilarious?! I also had a 'scary' dream last night, mine was that a Chuckie-like kid was trying to find me and hurt me, but I ended up making friends with him.. weird. but like you, when I have a 'bad' dream I'm never scared. I always find a way out of it.

    1. That movie is indeed hilarious! Loved it so much!
      Oh my, that is a weird dream! Chuckie is so weird. But funny that you ended up being friends. Haha. Glad i am not the only one with scary dreams without being afraid!

  2. 2. We'd all be surprised by what we can live without if we try!
    4. NOT one of my favorites.
    5. I HATE dreams where I'm being chased!
    7. Aawwww! I love it! I need me a happy turtle today!
    8. I've often thought about this.
    10. I have to be warm when I go to sleep but usually I end up waking up and throwing off the quilts and stripping my PJ pants. So whatever.
    Happy Tuesday to you!

    1. Yeah, I always thought that I needed sugar in my tea but turns out, I don't!
      Hope you met lots of happy turtles. :)
      I know funerals are a hot topic but I really don't feel like it is necessary to spend that much money for me when I am dead. My family should do something nice instead. :)
      Haha, that never happens to me! :) I wish it would!

  3. That's so neat that money has been donated to such a great cause! And by the way, I really admire your love for animals, Katrin ;).

    I've been having a lot of bad and weird dreams lately; a lot of which involve my mom who's always mean to me in my dreams :(. Last night, I dreamed that Marilyn Manson had kidnapped me and I was very scared, hahaha.

    Let us know how your vegan coconut cream pie turned out ;).

    Tight hugs!

    1. I love that they donated so much money for that cause. Things like that should happen more often! Thank you so much for your kind words, Miki. It means a lot.

      Oh wow, that really is a bad dream! I am sorry about that. I mean, you mom being mean? That would freak me out! And Marilyn Manson is creepy even without kidnapping you, haha.

      I definitely will. I will bake it next week I guess, I still have some other cake I need to eat! :)

      Hugs! <3

  4. omg I am a no 10, too minus the socks. I need my hot water bottle!

    I feel a nightmare(5) is due to stomach issues. well, that's what my father says!

    1. Minus the socks? How can you survive without socks? :)) Haha

      Hmm, then I must have a lot of stomach issues. I often have nightmares! I agree that there must be a reason!

  5. Hi Katrin!
    Nice pic..i hate pple who kill turtles for fun or food :X

    I like coconut too, it is considered a scared fruit in my religion and is a part of prayers and auspicious ceremonies :)

    I'll try cutting down on my sugar too.

    Three blankets, fuzzy socks and a hot water bottle!!....God! even reading that is enough to make me sweat :P

    Have a nice day!


    1. Hi Ankita! People who kill animals for fun are the worst. I hate them so much!
      I did not know that coconuts are sacred in your religion! That is so cool! I need to read more about this!
      Good luck with the sugar! It is in soo many products!
      Haha, I wish I would not need all the blankets etc. :)
      Have a great week!

  6. 1. Thanks for the shoutout! You're too sweet!
    3. Finally some good news!
    5. & 6. I have a lot of dreams like that too. Maybe it's all the books I read that are creeping into my dreams.
    7. What a cute picture!
    9. Yum!

    1. You are very welcome, Martha! You are the sweetest!
      And I agree, it is great to hear some good news once in a while. There are too many bad ones.
      Well, seems like I am not the only one. I would say that 97% of my dreams are bad ones. People always try to kill me!
      Have a great day!

  7. I had weird dreams, too, last week. Maybe it was because of the full moon? I sleep weirdly when it's up and I tend to dream a lot :)
    I love turtles and I love that picture!
    I can't sleep either if I don't have warm feet - so I always need a heat pillow and a big blanket, too :)
    Ich hoffe, du hast eine wunderbare Woche liebste Katrin. Ich drück Dich noch ein letztes Mal ganz feste :)

    1. Maybe it was because of the full moon! I have not thought about that! Love your pictures so much by the way!
      Turtles rock so much!
      Seems like we are both Eiszapfen. :) Ich drueck Dich! <3

  8. The turtle and the cat... SO CUTE!!!

    1. Yeah, I am in love! I need a happy turtle!

  9. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    This means that you actually burn fat by consuming Coconut Fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from major medical journals are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
