Pasta

More Veggies #1: Mushroom pasta

I love trying new things in life. Learning a new language, get a new hobby, travel to places I haven’t been yet and of course trying new foods. Growing up, we usually ate a lot of the same things for dinner; boiled potatoes, boiled vegetables and a piece a meat and in winter time the Dutch ‘stampots’. Of course those three things would vary every day and when my mom had less time to cook we would  occassionally eat pasta bolognese or lasagne. (I love lasagne) When I started living on my own I was delighted that I could choose every evening what I wanted to eat.

Take it easy

There are some days that I just want no hassle when it comes to cooking (they are very rare but still). On those days I want to cook something simple and quick that does not take a lot of preparation.

It didn’t matter how many times we got it fixed, it continued to break down.

Tastes better from scratch

What happens if the internet decides to stop working on Monday night? Taking Netflix down with it and the television decides to join? Yes! It means that it is time to finally try-out my pasta machine. Well I thought it was. I first had to make an attempt to read an Italian instruction manual on how to put the individual pieces together. After 15 minutes I figured it out and all that stood between me and my plate of home-made pasta was the creation of the dough.

Stepping into the comfort zone

Tired, hungry and cold. Those three things that went through my head  I was cycling home from work on Thursday fantasising about that greasy portion of chips I was going to order as soon as I was home. When I finally came home I realised I would rather have a big plate of steaming comfort food. Semi-healthy comfort food. Anyway it would be better than greasy chips and without a doubt much tastier too
