A round bite-sized shell of puff pastry, with a pastry lid, can be filled with a lot of different fillings. The traditional recipe is a delicate filling made up of chicken and mushrooms, bound with a sauce. I also add a bit of cream in the sauce. A bit more calories, but worth the delicious taste! I normally serve vol-au-vent with fries, but for once I went for croquettes. Not bad at all!
Here’s a good start to a good weekend. My best friend always talk about happy fridays and she posts every friday a funny picture. I’ll go for happy saturdays as from now. Nothing better than starting them with a nice breakkie. Some yogurt, some strawberries, some fresh mint. That’s all you need!
It has been ages that I served macaroni with ham and cheese. It reminds me of my childhood, my grandmother made the best macaroni ever. In the original recipe you’ll only find ham and cheese. In today’s recipes a lot of ingredients are added like green onions, mushrooms, bacon, peppers,.. Feel free and create your own version. What is your secret ingredient 💕 ?
I love them! Spa Duo, non-sparkling water with two flavours: lime and ginger or apple and daladan. Low in calories, no added sugar. Perfect when you’re avoiding soft drinks in your life and you’re only drinking water the whole day long…
Just fab! Pancakes with strawberries and honey. Smiling faces all around in the house. And I have to admit, I adore the picture. Definately one of my best shots. So proud!
I wanted to prepare a « light » dinner as today was the first day with some sunshine since longtime. Potatoes fried in olive oil, cherry tomatoes with chives and tuna with mayonnaise. So easy and so quickly ready. Full of flavours, I can already feel the summer vibes.
Perfect breakkie for a Monday morning. Difficult start of the week, we need some encouragement 👍
I prefer a donut with chocolate. My husband prefers one without chocolate and he adds some jam on it. I think we’re both okay now to go to work 🤪
Cava became my second favourite drink (gin tonic stays the number one of course). If you reply four time « yes » to the above mentionned questions, you deserve a glass of Cava… dixit Freixenet… Cheers and to a relaxing end of this weekend. See you again tomorrow!
Sunday evening, time for spaghetti. Been busy the whole day cleaning up the apartment. Especially the kitchen got a real make-over. We also went to IKEA and we bought some new kitchen stuff 🤪 plates, glasses, coffee mugs, … I’ll use them for my next food pictures.
Didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen and spaghetti bolognaise seamed to me the perfect sunday dish. Minced beef, onions and tomatoes, that’s all you need for the bolognaise sauce.
Friday evening, staying home, which is convenient for my healthy foodprogram untill the beginning of June. No alcohol tonight.
But I do think I deserve a little something 😜 so of this whole collection I may choose one (and yes, only one!) chocolat… Hmmm…
