So yesterday we finally threw down some coins for two new desks and are all officially set up with our first home office everrr.

As much as I loved perching in random coffee bars, shopping malls and guesthouse windowsills (yep!) for that next sweet hit of wifi connection on the road, itโ€™s such a good feeling to be sitting here writing this in our own dedicated work space, our modem blinking happily by our side.

The life of a blogger is so glamourous haha.

Apart from cooking and eating (all for your benefit, promise!) and endless refills of our favourite teas through the day (oh my god tie guan yin get on it), the best part of working from home would have to be endless free puppy cuddles.

Although I have to admit that sometimes it is hard to stay focussed when Bonnie is over there woofing and twitching in her sleep.

THAT FACE. Ahh the cuuuuuuteness.

Anyway back to business. ๐Ÿ˜€

Yep, itโ€™s another Super Simple Saturday but today is extra special because itโ€™s Easter! Hope youโ€™re all having an awesome day wherever you are and ready for a weekend of wandering adventures, family fun or just plain old chilling at home (which is seriously the best plan).

Whatever youโ€™re doing, we hope thereโ€™s a good dose of cooking in there too.

In case youโ€™re in need of some quirky inspiration, today weโ€™ve got a brand new combination coming to you all the way from Japan. Itโ€™s another of Akkoโ€™s zany Japanese creations, just like these 5 Minute Honeyed Pepper Clove Strawberries.

Japanese Strawberry Salami Salad

This one is also conveniently a 5 Minute Wonder, but despite the fact that itโ€™s packed with gorgeous fresh strawberries, this super simple salad packs a definite savoury punch.

Joining our strawberries are โ€“ wait for it โ€“ slivers of spicy salami (!!), shreds of baby spinach, cracklings of black pepper and a good drizzling of olive oil.

Each ingredient balances the other in perfect Japanese harmony, while the olive oil brings out the amazing flavour potential locked away inside.

I know I know. I KNOW how it sounds. It sounds CRAZY.

But what it actually is, is seriously GOOD. We even got our housemateโ€™s seal of approval.

      Same here, we never would have thought of this combo without a little inspiration. It’s a little spicy, a little sweet, and totally moreish. ๐Ÿ˜€
