[EN – NL below read more tag]

For Easter dinner this year, I have compiled the following from several small recipes:

[gr = grams] [st = pieces] [el = tablespoon]

The appetizer consists of:
– Raw beetroot [500g]
– Leaf parsley [10 sts]
– lemon juice
– olive oil
– Sea salt & pepper
– Pistachios [100g]
– Water [4 tbsp]

Cut the beets into thin slices or grate them. Chop the parsley leaves finely until you have about 2 tbsp. Chop also the pistachios finely and add slowly some water, which is then a pistachio sauce (do not allow to become thin). All the other ingredients you mix together, and stir. Add salt to taste, pepper and lemon juice.

The main course consists of:
– Black tagliatelle [500 gr]
– Wild salmon cubes / strips [600g]
– Leek [1 st]
– Lemon juice [1 tbsp & rasp]
– Tarragon leaves
– olive oil

Cook the tagliatelle. Cut the wild salmon into cubes, slice the leek into rings and put both ingredients in a wok or frying pan in olive oil. Bake the salmon, fry the leeks along, season with lemon juice and tarragon leaves. Drain the tagliatelle and the main course is on the plates.

The dessert comprises:

Watches

When I started with Pinterest, one of my first boards was the board about watches. Watches are easy to categorize, everything with an hourwork that you can wear around you wrist with exception a pocketwatch, that belongs also to this category. All those watches inspired me and when I finished my study I would like to have a Seiko wristwatch, a semi-classic one though, not too sporty I guess. Or a sportwatch because I am cycling and running and it is nice to keep track of your performance and improvements during the activity. So I am not really sure yet and true, making about of watches does not let you make an easier decision. And at some universities, like the one I study at, you are not allowed anymore to wear a watch during your exam. Still, watches are a nice and useful accessory.

I write a little bit about the history of the watch further in this post as well as an overview of all brands of watches you can find on my board.

Mangochutney

A small appetizer for an Indian dish.
Or for an after eight moment, what was in my case.
I used a recipe of Thomas Feller and Maya Barakat-Nuq.

It was a sunny tuesday and I was on my way to my hometown.
And got a spontanuous thought: let’s make an appetizer today!
So I looked up this recipe but could not find every ingredient in just one way to my hometown. My recipe is, as you understand, a bit different.

I used:

  • one young mango, however an eatable one
  • a clove of garlic
  • two pieces of ginger (from a jar)
  • 60g of brown sugar
  • 4 table spoons of vinegar
  • a bit of salt.

It just takes a few steps and a lot of patience to make this little appetizer. First i sliced the mango in little cubes. The second step was to heat all the other ingredients in a frying pan. After a few minutes when it was getting a bit jelly, I added the mango. Now you only have to cook it for another 20 minutes till it is a jam sauce (besides the mango). You can serve it in little glasses you use for amuses. Bon appetit!
