spending creativity on cooking
Right now I do not have the time to craft so I am trying to use my creativity in a constructive way, so it will benefit the whole family. The best way is to spend it on making food! I have realized the beauty of cooking and how good it is to try new recipies and how economical it is to plan the menu for a week and only buy the groceries you need for the menu. I am rummaging food sites for simple everyday food recipies. And I have found many pearls already.
Wee E is eating well and my husband likes it a lot that I am developing my cooking skills (he makes very good food too!). And I am feeling good making healthy food from scratch, eating well everyday and learning how to consume different groceries.
The whole family loves lingonberries so I made kladdkaka cupcakes with lingonberries in them (and I snuck some white and milk chocolate chips into the dough as well:). I brought some to our craft club. How is it, by the way, that you eat heaps when a small group of good friends is gathered?!
Lingonberry was also an ingredients in "kålpudding till vardags" (= cabbage pudding), a huge hit according to me!
(I know it should handed to a trained professional to photograph food, cause it do not always look so sweet and tasty when being an amateur snapping the pictures, but here I go with my pictures of my cookings!)
Cauliflower soup with bacon from the team behind Spontana smaker. I will try their wintery meatballs as well!
And how about them carrots!
Today I bought fresh fennel (= fänkål) and will try to make something with it tomorrow, probably a big pot of fish soup.
Do you have any good recipies for me?
I wish you all the best for Thursday!
