Happy Sunday everyone! We saw this purple cauliflower in the market so we thought of cooking it with the chicken.
Following Jamie Oliver’s easy cooking with 5 ingredients, we prepared the 5 vital ingredients: for the two of us, a small piece of chicken, half of cauliflower, 4 pieces of potatoes, fresh coriander and tikka masala paste. First, wash and quarter the potatoes, don’t peel. Cut the flowers of the cauliflower into small size, stalks and all.
Cover the chicken with 2 to 4 spoons of tikka paste (or other indian paste, like tandoori, korma, vindaloo). Use hands (a bit messy, but fun!)
Put the rest of the paste to the vegetables. Season the potatoes and cauliflower with salt and pepper, olive oil and wine vinegar. Cut the stems of the coriander and add them. Put the coriander leaves in a bowl of cold water, to be sprinkled later.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and put the chicken and the vegetables.
Roast for an hour up to 1 hour and 20 minutes. Let the fat of the chicken drip to the vegetables.
Voila! Our roast chicken tikka 🙂

Hello everyone!I met my friend C in town last week. We haven’t seen each other for quite some time so it was nice to meet again. We went to our favourite Japanese restaurant and had sashimi and yakisoba plus tea. Then we went shopping and had some ice-cream. It was a good thing we were in the tea shop when the rain poured hard. We just stayed a little longer there catching up with our news.
Yesterday I went to see my friend N for lunch and she cooked chicken curry, fish with black bean sauce and rice. They were delicious! I made leche flan for our dessert. R came, too. We spent the afternoon just talking and laughing and having tea.
This morning, Him Indoors and I went swimming before we went to work. Such a good way to start the day.
It has been raining for a couple of days but today is a bit sunny. That made me smile, too.
What made you smile this week?

According to Wikipedia: Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. It’s a nation known for historic sites related to a succession of rulers including the Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John, French and British. It has numerous fortresses, megalithic temples and the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, a subterranean complex of halls and burial chambers dating to circa 4000 B.C.
Sharing with you some of the street scenes in Malta.
as well as water scenes.
We had some of the wonderful sunset experience.
We’ve joined a cruise to Gozo, Camino and Blue Lagoon. But as you could see, it was a windy day and we had quite a rough voyage.
Then, we had a three-hour bus tour around Gozo.
Sharing with you some of the food we’ve had on this holiday. I’ve had fish and seafood and Him Indoors has had burgers, steak and chips.
and of course, our drinks.
All in all, we really had a smashing time! Cheers!

Hello everyone from a cloudy Bavarian morning.
Oh well, we can’t have lovely weather everyday. Last week was brilliant, though. We were able to cycle around. Him Indoors is on holiday for a month, so he was out gardening most of the time. Sharing with you some of our new flowers.
Last night, we had dinner at the Greek’s – the place was full, people were outside and the food was really delicious!
By the way, I’ll have a break from blogging. We’re going on holiday for two weeks – in two countries – yay! I’ll tell you all about it when I get back. For now, have a lovely week everyone!
So, what made you smile this week?

Leche Flan is my favourite dessert. When we have some get-together, I always make leche flan and everyone loves it. My brother has this recipe and it’s so delicious! Here it is: 10 egg yolks, 2 cans evaporated milk, 1 can condensed milk, rinds of a lemon. First of all, prepare your tins and caramelised some sugar in them. Just put a couple of spoons of sugar in the tins and in a medium heat keep on stirring until brown caramelised. Put them aside. For the leche flan, put all the ingredients together, slightly stirring it, making sure no air formed. Double sieve it to the tins you have put aside with the caramelised sugar. Steam them until done. Usually half an hour steaming. Put them in the refrigerator. Best served cold. Enjoy!
