So it was the first spring-like day after several weeks of hard winter today. Moderate temperatures and a lot of sunshine. Beautiful! We fired up the pizza oven and found that it also doubles very well for baking bread.
These are the Udon Noodles I had for lunch yesterday. Thrown together from what I found in the pantry and deemed suitable – but at least with a decent originally japanese broth (at least as far as I know).
Can any japanese Person from my valued readership perhaps provide me with a japanese word for „thrown together“ or „rag-tag“ or „random“ or similar, so I have a name to call them in the future? 🙂
As I’m still not able to move around a lot and freely, I’m cooking a lot these days and I’m growing a serious set of love handles from it… For the first time, I appreciate the benefits of the small northern germany kitchen: Almost everthing I need is within an arm’s reach and I don’t have to stress the broken knee too much.
After rummaging around in the freezer, I found some pike perch fillets and so here’s yesterday’s dinner:
So we heard some tippity-tappity, some scratching and a low clopping from the attic again. The lady of the house was super-interested as well and so we decided to set up a trap and a camera again to see if we could pinpoint somebody. Seems we have a tiny little subtenant in the house again 🙂
I came up with this dressing a long time ago and it’s been an evergreen in my kitchen ever since. Simple and delicious – the magic lies in the tyrolian pumpkin seed oil (“steirisches Kernöl”).
I’m not so much of a mobile person at the moment due to my recent kneecap-incident that I’m currrently recovering from. But you can always make soup! We had a lot of snowfall the last days and a warm and hearty soup is a winter evening’s delight: Here’s my roasted cauliflower soup:
I’m always glad for hits on my recipes – gives me a feeling that some people out there do indeed benefit a little from this website. Here’s what you all clicked most in 2020. Thanks!
