At least it was a nice view from the window this morning, opening the curtain. There is sunshine, with even some parts of blue sky. And although the temps are rather low, it still isn;t freezing in our part. But they predicted some more rain, might be with some hail or perhaps wet snow, not sure yet, for the days to come. And with some more wind it could feel colder. Still I am not really complaining, I can live with the weather at the moment LOL.
Friday I went to do some shopping for the weekend and that was about all I did that day. I decided to give my back a little bit more rest over the weekend, and it's going better and better. I might even do without a pill from the doctor today. I;ll see how that goes, it should be possible( don;t like to take a lot of medication if not absolutely necessary).
Saturday I just did a few errands and Jan went to the market on his own. And he came back with a filled bag again. Mandarines, bananas, cabbage, collieflower. So Sunday was again "preparing the veggies-day"again and my freezer is filled with fresh veggies again. I also made us dinner with a new recipe I've found and it was delicious. And quick and easy! I tried my best to translate it, recipee is for 4 persons.
800 grams of potatoes
4 slices of whole weat bread (old), best is the darkest one
2-4 cloves of garlic
50 grams of hazelnuts(but I made it without them, just as good)
4 crops of lettuce Romaine( thats the long salad,)
smoked chicken breast
300 grams of goat cheese( the dry one, so you can easily crumble it)
(you can play a bit with the ingredients, e.g. for us two I just used two big potatoes, which was more than enough)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Peel potatoes, cut them in cubes, boil the potatoes and in another pan for a couple of minutes only, the lettuce (cut in halves) and let it drip off.
Then in the mean time cut the crusts from the bread, cut the bread in small dice, peel and cut the garlic, chop the parsley, chop the nuts, mix all that in a bowl with a little bit of oil.
Grease an oven dish with a bit of oil.
Take the salad leaves, squeeze lightly the rest of the water away, fold them into "packages"and put them at the bottom of the oven dish.
(Tip: you easily can take some white cabbage leaves instead(as I did), or even some courgette, or broccoli, whatever you can think of)
Crumble the potatoes on the vegetable, a little bit of salt and pepper on them,
Cut the smoked chicken in little slices, and put them on the potatoes. (you could also take some bacon, or dices of ham)
Sprinkle over that the bread mixture.
Crumble the goat cheese over it.
Perhaps again a bit of pepper(I did, and I liked it)
Put it in the oven for about 15-25 minutes.
Enjoy your meal!
You can notice I feel already better, because I tried a new recipe, LOL!
But, all together I was rather happy with the weekend.
Now today I must write my Christmascards and post them tomorrow! I know, perhaps already a bit late, but they will arrive in time(I hope)
Time for a freebie, I suppose? What about another Christmaskit, hey? This time a completely different one, named "Welcome Dear Santa!".
Have a wonderful day!
