Chicken fillet, fried potatoes and a green salad

743BE22F-5493-42EB-A8BE-8940011FB553This is a refreshing dinner, perfect after a sunny day. Quickly ready, ideal after a working day. Every one is happy in the house!

Ingredients for the green salad: shallot, green lettuce, cucumber and chives. Or you can go for a vinaigrette or simply use mayonnaise like I did.

The potatoes are first boiled in salted water and then fried in quite what olive oil in a frying pan. Add onions and red peppers and let fry for half an hour.

The chicken can or be boiled in water or be grilled on a grill. Avoid to fry it in a frying pan as we used already a lot of olive oil for the potatoes. And don’t forget, we try to eat healthy as our wedding day is coming soon…


Spaghetti Bolognaise

26F2DABD-C32A-415D-8FBF-1AB5BE86713AI know, I know. I’ve posted already so many times pictures of this pasta recipe. Can’t help it, it stays one of my favourite lunch dishes: Spaghetti bolognaise.

You do know that in Italy they don’t do this bolognaise thing? It’s a belgian « creation » thinking we have italian habits, haha! In Italy they have the « al ragù » pasta that is quite similar, but you’ll also find many different recipes of it. And they don’t limit it to spaghetti, they also serve it with penne or tagliatelle.

My homemade sauce is prepared with onions, minced beef and tomatoes. Nothing else. Just perfect. And I love this picture!

Spaghetti Bolognaise

BC3F48E6-590A-42A0-A004-C788B41F65DBSunday 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.

Chicken, carrots & quinoa

4A282215-2207-4F85-A971-C33F80E32B47I’m going to be honest… I saw so many recipes with quinoa that I really wanted to give it a try. But I won’t try it again. I don’t like the taste at all… I prefer rice or pasta.

One-pot chicken: onions, carrots, chicken, rosemary and chicken stock – let it cook in the oven, 20 mins at 180°C
