Let’s skip the sugar-coating, I’ve had a really rough week. I’ll spare you the ugly details. Anyway, the current stubborn cold front has made me crave comfort food, so that’s what we were having.
Accidentally, my meals have been quite international last week. Thinking about it, we always eat ‘around the globe’. Guess that’s no surprise in a multi-national household.
This heart-warming stew was inspired by Mama Pea’s Spicy African Peanut Stew. Delicious!
Now, this is German (or Austrian?) comfort food at its best! Vegetable soup with semolina dumplings, called ‘Griessnockerl’.
Is it weird that I’m craving ice cream, even in arctic weather conditions? Whatever. This smoothie totally tasted like strawberry ice cream. No, it was even better, without all the added sugar, saturated fat, and additives. Ha!
One of the things I love the most about weekends is a relaxed breakfast. Much better than eating a sandwich while sitting at my desk at work.
On Saturday, the Husband insisted on making potato pancakes. Naturally, I wasn’t complaining. I had mine with sour cream and ajvar. Unconventional, but so good.
On Sunday I improvised a veggie pasta casserole. Not pretty, but surprisingly tasty.
