For me, this month is all about time management. I’ve got so much going on: uni, work, blogging and in between I like to hang out with friends or do danceclasses as well. Tonight I had dinner with my roommate Sofie but as I got home from work around 18:30 and had to go to danceclass at 20:30 we run to the supermarket, bought some seasonal mushrooms and pasta and made this delicious pasta dish in 20 minutes!
Things you need: pasta, mushrooms (we got the seasonal package), fresh spinach, garlic, onion, bacon, parsley, cream and parmesan.
First: boil some water for the pasta and use the instructions on the package. Now put the spinach and the (crushed) garlic in the food processor with some olive oil
Now it looks like this
Fruit the onion in some olive oil and add the bacon
Slice the mushrooms
When the bacon is done, add the mushrooms and let it fry. After that, add the spinach and some cream.
Mix it all with the pasta and put it on a plate. Now add some parmesan cheese and parsley
I never thought this would happen but this is the first time since I started blogging in 2009 that I didn’t blog for a whole month. But it happened this summer. August was my non-blogging month. But not totally, as I was busy rethinking the concept of this blog and making a new design! I’m super excited to start with this new blog in September, as this month is the 4 years anniversary of this blog!
Last time you saw me I talked about my issues with the blog. I talked a lot with my friends about my blog and what I wanted to do with it. The message was quite clear: do what you like most. But what is that? I like so many things, it’s hard to tell what you like most. Although most things I like go with ups and downs, there’s one topic I’m always enthusiastic about: food. I love good food. I’m a superfan of burgers and pasta and you can always wake me up for a nice breakfast. I also love to photograph my food. In the pre-iphone era I made photos with my camera but since I’ve discovered instagram I just have to take a picture when I have a nice plate in front of me.
Obviously, there are still more things than just food which interest me, and I’ll probably talk about those things too, but I decided to shift the focus from personal lifestyle blog to food blog. I hope you like it and visit me for nice recipes, restaurants, bars and tips! On the picture above you can see my home made chicken burgers, recipe will follow soon!
Thank you all for your nice messages last month! It was quite hard to change the direction of my blog as it has become quite a part of myself after four years of blogging. Though I’m really excited to continue and post about the thing I’m always enthusiastic about: lots of food!
ps. On the sidebar you can find all post before the change under ‘Archive‘.
Today was one of those days that you just can’t decide what to cook for dinner. Very rarely in my case, as I usually think about supper all day long. But not today. In most of these cases I make one of my always-awesome pasta dishes but for some weird unknown reason I really didn’t feel like eating pasta today. So after wandering around for a while, searching the internet for some recipes I decided to make pancakes! With an zucchini-peas-mushrooms saus.
The ingredients! For the pancakes you need flour, milk, eggs and a little but of salt. For the saus, zucchini (half), mushrooms, onion, garlic, peas, parsley, cream and bacon (which is not in the picture because it was already in the frying pan).
First, fry the bacon and when it’s done, put them on a plate and put the onion in the same pan.
Now slice the onion and the zucchini, crush the garlic and add everything in the pan. Also add the peas.
Now it’s time to make the pancakes! With 1 egg, 1/4 l milk and 125gram flour you’ve got a great mix for around 3 pancakes, which is perfect if you’re eating alone. Also add some salt.
Add some butter in the pan and make some awesome pancakes! Be careful that you don’t make them too thick.
In the meanwhile, add the bacon and chopped parsley to the mix. You can add some cream if you like it creamy.
And they’re done!
