I Am Woman- Pasta Salad

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Jun-14-2010

I found that stinkin’ recipe.I know me, I would never make anything so red and white. There had to be basil in it.

I am not doing a translation. That it so tedious.

250g Fusilli.

The juice and the fancy name for the peel of one lemon.

5 Tablespoons of Olive oil.

Salt and freshly ground black pepper.

4 Tomatoes, de-seeded , cut into slivers.

200 grams smoked salmon, slivered.

2 Tablespoons of capers.

3 Tablespoons of slivered , fresh Basil.

75 grams of coarsely grated Parmesan cheese.

OK, no cheese, we all know this. No capers. Gone. We did not like the Olive Oil, so we used cheap oil instead.

None of that lemon peel. We added a teaspoon of sugar. I think.

We doubled everything. We have some big eaters here.

Once you chop everything up, this really takes about ten minutes to make.

You cook the fusilli, whatever the bag says and rinse it off in cold water. Let it drain in a colander.

Whisk up the dressing, mix half of the basil in and everything else.

Use the rest of the basil as garnish.

Garnish.

I am not a garnish sortof person.

I have a deep craving for Codfish Balls.

This really is not the balls of some poor fish.

Really

Fudge

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Jun-13-2010

Today has been a fudge day.

The Girl and I had one h*ll of a hoot trying to paint the kitchen today : there simply was not enough light to see what we were doing.

But this was good Mother Daughter time, female bonding, whatever.

And I simply cannot find that recipe for the pasta salad. The Girl and I made this 3 times last year , until we got it right.

The ingredients are simple : 500 grams of fusilli, 500s gram of smoked salmon, cut into threads. 4 tomatoes de-seeded and slivered. And then the dressing. The olive oil did not work, so cheapo oil. Lemon, sugar.

Once I figure this out, I shall put it here, because it is a pain in the patooty to try and figure out the ratios.

This is why God made bowls. And whisks.

This is good on a warm day.

Oh wait, the way my day has gone, it most likely will snow soon.

Stop whining, Mummy Dearest.

And go, Australia ! You guys are ruggers and I shall never, ever be for Germany. And you both have Dutch coaches, go, ruggers !

Margarita

Posted by Mummy Dearest on May-10-2010

I found this recipe in 2003, on a site run by a guy named Rob Novak. His site now seems to be gone. But it is his recipe, and I shall copy some of his words.

There are three ingredients in a Margarita, period. Four if you count the salt. These are Tequila, Cointreau and lime juice, in a 3 2 2 ratio. Simply put, that is 1.5 oz. of tequila, 1oz. Cointreau and 1 oz lime juice.

1. Run a lime wedge around the rim of a margarita or cocktail glass and dip the rim in salt to coat.

2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add 1oz each of lime juice and Cointreau and 1.5 oz. of good tequila.

3. Shake.

4. Strain into the prepared cocktail glass.

Made with fresh limes, this is a really good and wicked drink.

The Father once had to carry a dear friend of ours up to the third floor after he had one too many of these suckers.
