Talking about Meals with Heike Pushbikegirl

Heike has asked me again for an interview, this time about cooking a meal while cycling. I love being interviewed and had a lot of fun making pictures just for Heike’s questions.

Busy cooking a meal on a wood fire. I make pasta, something I get very tired of, but it is quite difficult to come up with something original if the ingredients lack originality!

See how much fun I had with the photo’s, but the answers are equally interesting, as was a logic reaction to the good, thoughtful questions of Heike.

Heike had done an interview with me earlier on, read that here.

Together we now try to be more self-sustainable, grow our own food and live off-grid. I now juggle with the logistics of being an old-fashioned housewife, cook and creative artist loving the outdoors. The pouches I create are for sale on

Don't just stop here, I appreciate your thoughts too : )
