I boiled potatos, yuca, carrots and celery, and a little bit of ham. Olive oil and a little bit of salt. I left boiling in a very low heat until the yuca and potatos were disintegrating....
then I pressed them with a wooden spoon, added a little bit of milk and an equal part of water. Fresh black peper gave a special touch.
Served with grated parmesan on top.
The quantities depend on how many mouths will share the soup. For me, I used two big potatos and a small yuca. Everything else was eye balled in equal parts. The quantity of water depends on the heat you use, and how much you will boil it.
I came up with the idea for this blog while sleeping... I had sent me an email for the name, and came back to sleep.
Well, I do have a French name, just another French name....
I wanna use this blog for everything that comes along: recipes, general comments, and first and foremost, to practice writing good things. I explain: after reading my old diaries, I've realized that I only write when upset, making a really difficult time when I have to write something nice.
So, here it goes!
Yesterday I've cooked cheese topped steaks and I was surprised of how great it came out! It was served with aspargos (olive oil and pepper) and rice.
Tomorrow I will probably make a white sauce (with ground meat and ricota) lasanha. For today, I still have some steaks to go!
Talking about "to go" my sudden interest on cooking it is not helping my extra 10lb to leave.... but this is another story... =)
I always wanted to be a very modern woman. And I am! Meanwhile I got married, bought a sew machine and learned to cook! I also do not change my pans for parties, and I think it is a good therapy to work the doug!!! Apart for this surprising taste for a simple life, I have sharp opinions and an acid vision of things... I think too much and my standards are very high, which make me want to write a manual about me! =) No one will read that anyway, but at least I won't be acused of being incomprehensible!
