I’ll undergo a medical examination where I must not eat for one day in advance. So I treated myself with a grubby and substantial meal the evening before. Here is it:
Ingredients for 2:
500 g spinach, fresh
2 cloves garlic
6-8 king oyster mushrooms (depending on size)
125 g polenta
salt & pepper to taste
Although legumes (e.g. beans, peas or lentils in all their varieties, forms and shapes) are available ready-to-use and cheap in any given supermarket, many people don’t know how to prepare them from their dried state. Yet, for an old freaky prepper like me 🙂 they are very useful: Their shelf life is a felt eternity, they’re nutritious and, well, occasionally they taste really good.
The cristmas eve edition of homemade bread dumplings as made by my sister-in-law. It’s an absolutely traditional southern german / austrian dish and it’s my first time to make them myself and not use the store-bought ones. Well, the pre-made dumplings will have a hard time from now on.
… or “Kasspatzn” in southern german slang. I posted an article on them before, boasting around that I would make them myself. Today was the day and we finally made some. These are gorgeous, delicious little bastards and they’re surprisingly easy to make! An easy, yummy and filling crowd-pleaser.
TL;DR: I’ll never buy the pre-made ones from the supermarket again!
As a kid I loved the Bud Spencer & Terence Hill movies! Great stories, even greater comments and… cool food. Just remember them grubbing a full pan of beans and bacon fresh from the campfire and niftily stolen from some starving-ass villains (and occasionally sharing it with their horses). Here’s my (very simple) version – a tradition for the last 20 years:
They’re garlicky, buttery, crispy and simply yummy. If you gave me a bathtub full of them, I’d want to drown in it. Had them last night again and here’s how:
500g small, round potatoes
2-3 tbsp. butter
2-3 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 big cloves of garlic, minced
Dried rosemary to taste
Salt & pepper to taste
I made “Bangers and Mash” today, which is sausages and mashed potatoes with onion gravy. Veeery yummy! Here’s how:
Yesterdays dinner. Oyster- and king-oyster-mushrooms, deep fried with some veggies. Man I really need to get hands on some tips on how to properly take photos of food…
