What I ate for dinner Sunday


Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Today I was in the mood to share what I ate for dinner this Sunday.

And for today’s menu my BF and I made Chicken Korma with a simple cucumber, tomato and onion salad also known as a KachumberūüėÄ.

I loved that this meal was done in 30 minutes and full of flavour. And whoop whoop leftovers to spare

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Until next post friends!

What I ate for lunch Saturday

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I could not resist sharing this quick little post of what I ate for lunch this Saturday. It was pretty dammn good!

Today I went out for lunch with my sister and my BF, and ordered this amazing  Avocado and Corn Brioche sandwich at the Thrill Grill in Haarlem ! It tasted so wonderful and creamy that I definitely order it again. The balance of sweet and soar was wonderful. To make my lunch complete I ordered a side of onion rings. Which was pretty delightful I might say!

Until next post friends!

What I ate in Bali version 2.0

What I ate in Bali version 2.0

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Another trip to a far away country means another post filled with delicious new food to share. Ok Bali is not new to me anymore, yet my  love for food will never die. If you love food like I do, I believe it will be hard for you to look away and not continue reading. So read on and drown in all this yummy food goodness.

Asian

I finally had the opportunity to try out some new Indonesian dishes. Such as Sup Buntut a delicious Oxtail Soup. The meat fell straight of the bone and was so succulent and  the soup was really filling as it was filled with vegetables and served with rice, emping and pickled vegetables.

Another new dish I had the pleasure to try out at Honeybees restaurant,was Babi Guling. Now if you  like pork and crispy skin, you will love this. Eventhough I am not the biggest meat eater I really enjoyed it. This dish was served with some rice and some green vedge. I am unable to recollect what it was.

I was already familiar with different forms of rice porridge but I have never tried out the Indonesian version, the Bubur. OMG! I love this for breakfast, hell I would have this for dinner it is really delicious and nutritious. You eat this porridge with flaked chicken, spring onions, fried onions, ketchap and sambal. So delicious. You can really dress this porridge the way you want it. If you have an opportunity to try this dish I would recommend it.

The other Asian dishes I ate in Bali were , Soto Ajam,Nasi Istimewa, Beef BimiBap, Green Curry and Chicken Springrolls.  Even though the spring rolls were tasty I had a hard time locating the chicken. Just had to share that.

 

European

During my stay in Bali I had some European/Western dishes. I had a chicken burger  with fries and some Carbonara Fettucini with a garlic crostini.

 

Drinks

Besides drinking a lot of water I had some sneaky drinks. Boy did I enjoy drinking my Virgin Mojito next to the poolside. That drink was so refreshing and provided the necessary sugar rush for during the day. Also I thoroughly enjoyed having a nice fruit smoothie, being banana or strawberry.

 

Deserts

During my holiday I did not have a particular sweet tooth. However I had the pleasure to try two. One was a bread and butter pudding served with strawberry ice cream.

The second desert was mind blowing and so delicious.  Now let me tell you what this was. Sweet Potato Doughnuts with a caramel based sauce. This was so good and the portion size was just perfect. Now If I would know how to make these doughnuts I would definitely give it a try.

 

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post as I have enjoyed sampling all this goodness.  If you have any recommendations of dishes I should have tried out in Bali or dishes I should try in the future please leave a comment.

Until next post friends!

What I ate in Bali

What I ate in Bali

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

This post is dedicated to all you foodies out there. I thought it was about time to share what I ate in Bali with you. Trust me food is very important  in my life and Asian food is one of my faves! So I could not say no to writing this post! Please note  that there were 2 days I had some European food ( I know shame on me! )

But without further a do please check out the food and some drinks I had in Bali!

Unfortunately I cannot remember what I had on each day but here is the overview :

Nasi Goreng Gambing, Seafood Curry ( Cannot recollect the name) , Nasi Goreng Kampoeng.Singaporean Noodles, Gado Gado, Corn Fritters and  Kwetiaw Goreng Seafood.

European

Haloumi and Beetroot Salad and Penne with Mushroom

Drinks

Tropical Cocktail ( Again forgotten the name) and a green ice tea. The great thing about that one was you could adjust the sweetness of your tea. As my experience was that the Iceteas in Bali and Singapore are real sweet.

Deserts

Pisang Goreng with Ice and Nutella and cheese croissants.  Now you would say this sounds strange but I was pleasantly surprised.

Food is a joy in my life and I hope to find more delicious food in the years coming.

What is your favorite food and what would you recommend me trying? Feel free to leave  a  comment.

Until next post friends!

Quick and Easy Vanilla & Banana Smoothie

Quick and Easy Vanilla & Banana Smoothie

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I think I mentioned this smoothie 2 posts ago? I am not sure anymore , but as I bought back 4 banana’s from work,  I decided to make this smoothie. This smoothie is great to finish up some ripe/ over ripe banana’s.

Ingredients needed for a liter smoothie

4 x Banana’s

500 ml Vanilla Yogurt

Method 

Chop up your banana in tiny  pieces and put the banana’s in the blender. Blend the banana’s until smooth. Poor the yogurt in the blender and blitz for another minute or so. You can drink this smoothie immediately ,all though I think it tastes better after you have chilled it in the fridge for at least an hour.

This smoothie serves very well as a quick breakfast or if you want  a quick pick me up during the day.

I hope you all enjoyed this post.

Until next post friends!

Rainbow salad in a Jar

Rainbow salad in a Jar

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Ok, ok I confess it is not very creative that I am posting two food  related posts in a row. But I felt like sharing this one! This Rainbow salad is so simple to make, uses left over veggies, is healthy  and looks so colorful.

For this Rainbow Salad you will need some ( FYI you are free to add as much or as little as you want of these ingredients. :

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Peas
  • Quinoa
  • Lime
  • Pepper
  • Salt

Cook the quinoa as per instructions. For extra flavor I cooked my quinoa in some vegetable stock. Layer all your different components in the jar. Make sure that your quinoa has cooled down. Create a dressing with some lime juice and add salt and pepper to taste and drizzle over your salad in a jar.

 

I can imagine creating this one with couscous, Beetroot, Feta cheese and cucumber, mint and  a dressing of lime, salt and pepper.  I have not created that one yet but the flavors should work.

I hope you all liked this post. For my last post click here.  And as always please feel free to leave a comment. Until next post friends!

Indian food delight

Indian food delight

Hi all,

Just wanted to share the Indian food which I had with my parents last Sunday.  I just love Indian food. I love the spices and love the smell. The food tastes so good and comforting and I always feel very happy afterwards.

So my dad had the Lamb Vindaloo, my mum had the Tandori Salmon and I had the lamb Bangali. Does it not all look very yummy!

For the desert I had a pistachio kulfi.  Even though  the flavor was very concentrated it was very yummy. The only thing what would have made it more enjoyable for me, and this is personal off course  less coconut on top . But  I loved the pistachio flavor.

I hope you all enjoyed this little food sharing. For my last food orientated post click here. Have a good weekend and until next post.

XoXo
