This report straight from summer blog hiatus: fresh things are fine (except the still wriggling fish – they might be a bit TOO fresh. Thankfully some nice lady chopped the heads off them for us *shudder*).
Patrick brought home meat. I had cheese of different kinds. One quick trip to the shop and it all worked out perfectly.
The Patrick is promoting some healthy living these days. Which means we have an amazing amount of fruit and vegetables in the kitchen. I love it. We are going to sign up for a local produce co-op later today – it will be amazing to get fresh and locally grown food into the house on a regular basis.
This morning I’m having a whole lot of fruit on top of my cereal – or maybe it’s more like I’m having cereal under my fruit.
On top of all this we have gotten into the habit of making delicious orange/lemon/ginger juice which is a very relaxed and fun activity to be doing together in the kitchen and at the same time the product is so damn delicious.
The thing with sharing food with your roomie is that sometimes you overstock on some things. Like this Friday when we both brought home a lot of eggs. So we thought we’d have an eggstravagant eggsperience and do something eggstaordinary. Then we decided it sounded like work and just made an omelette.
I always liked the omelette concept since it basically means you can throw anything you want 8or happen to have handy) in to the mix. Besides eggs there are some things that just belong in a good omelette (or “egg-cake” as we say in Danish): purløg (chives), mushrooms, peas and bacon would be my best bet for a wholesome omelette. But chopped up sausages and mushrooms (+ chives) will do just fine in a pinch. I usually spice it with salt, pepper, paprika and a bit of cardamom.
He has been here for three weeks or so… and I have almost trained him to make coffee on command.
I have no idea why the combination of white bread, beef, egg (it’s inside the bread) and beetroot qualifies at “Parisian Toast”. But it was a delicious break from the hard work that has been going on since Patrick replaced The Randi this Monday. I still miss The Randi but it is also nice to be living with one of your very good friends.
As always I use my chopping board to measure the amount of ingredients. There’s not really a recipe. I just thought spinach would go well with potatoes and added some broccoli and onions. The only rule for the soup is that at least one third of it needs to be potato.
Since I was cooking for Patrick and he is of the carnivore variety I fried some bacon along with rye bread and mushrooms in order to make the dish less veggie.
