A revolution at the breakfast table. No more discussions, who goes to buy bread and who sets the table. If D. does not go, I just eat a piece of strawberry quinoa cinnamon rolls. So I’m off the hook and he goes voluntarily ‘:-) These strawberry quinoa cinnamon rolls are perfect for breakfast. Not too sweet. Fluffy and slightly fruity. And they are also much better with a cappuccino than a ground pork biscuit :-) And I can take it quite ‘easy peasy’ on the sunlounger. Because there’s nothing better than to sit in the the sun in our garden, early in the morning, a cappuccino in one hand and from today also a strawberry quinoa cinnamon roll in the other hand.
These strawberry quinoa cinnamon rolls aren’t really sweet. But if you prefer a sweeter version, please add more sugar.
Today its time for gua bao with twice cooked pork belly. Twice cooked pork belly (á la Fuchsia Dunlop) is a dish, which we eat relatively frequently at home (I have always some pork belly in the freezer) mostly in the cool month and than with rice. But it’s also a very tasty filling for buns. What is missing in this Dim Sum variation, is something fresh, crispy, which goes well with the fatty pork belly. Therefore, these gua bao with twice cooked pork belly are the better option for me.
The wait for the weekend is over. Because now, I can also buy the most delicious strawberry, fresh from the field, on weekdays. Located directly on the train station, now stands a funny Erdbeerebude. I don’t know if this is only a German thing. But here, you’ll see what I mean. Too bad that this has not opened early already in the morning, so I could buy strawberries twice a day. Because strawberries are always a good idea :-) But sometimes, it’s worth waiting a bit, especially if the seller reserves you ‘the prettiest strawberries in town’. Well, good connections are really important for food :-)
Today, it’s gonna be fast. I don’t want to tear you from your holiday weekend flow. Perhaps, only a little bit :-) So close your eyes and dream of a place of your choice with the finest white sandy beach, palm trees, turquoise waters and a huge portion of sun. All are in a happy sunshine mood and nothing can dampen your mood. And, do you hear the sound of the sea?
This time I have a hearty, tasty, flavorful and delicious asian style soup for you: Vegetarian Tofu Laksa with shiitake and noodles. This recipe is originally from the book Asiatische Nudelküche* by Robin Donavan from Parragon Books Ltd Bath (ISBN: 1472372875). Unfortunately the book is in german. So I don’t translated the review about this book. So you are lucky, you don’t have to read the whole text you can directly go to the recipe :-)
Rhubarb! Yippie yeah. It’s already in season, (at least in Germany). I bought some bars yesterday. Do you also like to eat them raw? Afterwards, you have this squeak on your tooth. Yes, I know oxalic acid; It’s not really healthy for your tooth, but hey, it’s not a lot the rhubarb I eat raw :-) By the way, I hope that I will have my own rhubarb in my garden next year. Do you have any tip which kind of sort is best?
