I made a Thai Beef Salad that was easy and fast to prep but tasted delicious.

Recipe here


A simple dinner: grilled burger, baked potatoes and salad with cucumber, tomato, feta cheese and Caesar dressing.




This one came from one of my cooking magazines: potato risotto with mushrooms. I didn’t know what to expect from this dish but it tasted very good.

Ingredients: potatoes, mushrooms, bacon, spring onions cooked in white wine with water. When it’s cook you add Parmesan cheese and rocket salad.




 Spaghetti with bacon, onion and tomatoes: Bucatini all’amatriciana. Very tasty.




Sausage, tortilla from potato, eggs and onion, tomato salsa. Delicious.

Upcoming weekend

Tonight we’re going to a concert: John Fogerty (Creedence Clearwater Revival) in Amsterdam. The concert is held in the “Ziggo Dome” a brand new hall, especially build for concerts. The sound must be very good in this hall.

Sunday my Mom will be visiting us and will stay for dinner.
