I got a pretty good harvest today, thanks to the sweet pepper-plant I bought. I harvested two of those small peppers, one small cucumber and three little tomatoes (I grow mostly small varieties because the plants usually also stay smaller). What started out as a way to keep the sun out in the summer has [...]
Today I installed the last bits of my balcony. I got some more small green pots and planted rosemary, a bay tree (more like a bush), two new types of oregano (makes three in total) and I planted the beans and peas. Also planted the courgettes, and put the rest in pots to give away. [...]
I’ve missed eating pizza since surgery. I did, a few times, but it only went well if I ate take-away pizza from one of those pizza places, not the kind I can buy in the supermarket. I could only eat 2 or 3 slices, and it seems a bit expensive to order in and only eat 1/4 of the pizza. It has to do with the dough, although I don’t know the details of why it doesn’t go well. Can’t eat bread either, same problem. I get really ill.
Today I made a most excellent discovery. Gordita’s (small, thicker tortilla wraps) work really well as a pizza-bottom. I tossed on some tomato sauce, chopped up veggies and mushrooms, added shredded cheese and popped the whole thing in the oven for 15 minutes.
Best pizza I ever had.
So I made another one just now. Two pizza’s in one day. I like to spoil myself.
I wanted a simple stew to put in my lunchbox for a busy day tomorrow, so I basically took some stuff I had in my cupboard. It approximated this:
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup lentils, red
- ½ cup lentils, brown
- 14 oz tomatoes, chopped, with herbs
- 2 tsp maggi sauce
- 1 tsp marmite
- 1 tsp pepper, grounded
- ⅓ cup parrano, grated (50 gr)
- ⅓ cup parmesan, grated (50 gr)
Cook the lentils and mix together. Simmer with tomatoes and spices for about 45 minutes.
If needed drain excess liquid, and serve with grated cheese on top.
Note: I used a can of Bonduelle (brown) Lentils, dried red lentils and Heinz Tomatoes chopped, with herbs, in juice.
