Last day of our vacation and we went to a pancake restaurant. In Holland we also eat pancakes for dinner. I had a pancake with banana, raisins and apple.
For lunch I tried a new recipe: a tuna salad with corn on a whole grain bread. Very tasteful, I made two portions so I could have another one for lunch on Sunday.
Last day of our vacation and I made an Italian dinner. We started with bruschetta with tomato, basil and olive oil. Followed by scalopine al limone (veal with lemon sauce) and potatoes with rosemary. Dessert was fresh fruit with a cream of mascarpone, whipped cream, lemon and orange juice.
A simple dinner: meatball, potatoes with a little bit of gravy, spinach with garlic and pine nuts.
I made this new recipe: Babi Pangang with yellow rice. We usually eat this when we get Chinese food but that dish is high in calories and sodium. The version I made was healthier. I liked it but R. didn’t so much and therefore this recipe isn’t going to end in my recipe collection.
Two recipes from my cook books today. Main was chicken breast stuffed with mozzarella cheese, garlic and basil.
Side dish (also carrots and pees) was warm cooked potatoes with salsa verde.
Recipe for the salsa verde
We had tortilla’s filled with beef, chorizo, yellow pepper, tomatoes and onions. We ate a little sour cream and guacamole with it.
No plans for this weekend. We’ve just had a vacation and it is nice to spend a weekend at home.
