Office fashion

One of the best things of working with girls is to admire other's sense of style and fashion. Everybody is so different in choices so there's plenty to look at. 

One of the most stylish women I ever met is my French friend Fanny. You can rely on her to wear something v stylish and unique everyday. Today she had a very nice outfit and I couldn't resist asking her for a photo.

childhood books

Now that I think and look back at my childhood books I realise how privileged I've been to benefit of beautiful meaningful stories and gorgeous illustrations of them. To the talented Romanians that live all around the world a hearty 'La multi ani!' for tomorrow and I know you remember these.

Fesenjun - the food of kings

Sometimes making a food that is not in your repertoire seems scary, but once you try it and succeed the efforts are rewarded. Making fesenjun seemed to me quite a challenge but once I tried the recipe I saw how I could simplify it and make it by saving time and effort.
"The fesenjan is one of the best stews of Iran which is believed to have originated in the province of Gilan bordering the Caspian Sea. The area was particularly renowned for its wild duck population and the fesenjan recipe made use of the duck meat initially, which was substituted with chicken later on. The dish was much favored during the fall season in Persia when the pomegranates matured. Fesenjan was also considered to be a Persian Rosh Hosanna dish." - ifood.tv

INGREDIENTS
2 chicken breasts - medium size
1 medium onion
75 ml pomegranate molasses
2 tbsp tomato paste
5 tbsp sugar
200 g walnuts
1 tbsp oil

METHOD
1. Peel and cut the oinion to small pieces.
2. Fry it until golden then add the chicken breast cut in small cubes.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer until meat is thoroughly cooked.

Weekends with Robert

Magical weekend with Dashenka

Tesco, Botanical Garden, Library, Making paper dolls, Cooking, Scooting, Swimming , Cinema Kung Fu Panda 3

Yesterday we were visited by a wonderful friend who gave us very good advice and brought a lot of chocolate. Perfect for making some lovely cupcakes. They turned out so good they surprised me. I usually look for recipes but then when I find them I change them. Here's my own recipe which came out really nice.

INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cup self raising flower
250g chocolate - I used 1 Cadbury egg and 2 bars
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk

METHOD
1. I melted the chocolate egg and left aside 90 g chocolate - the 2 bars.
2. I chopped the chocolate bars.
3. I mixed everything and placed the mixture into paper forms.
4. Sprinkle with coconut and put in the oven. 200 Celcius for 15-20 mins.

Chinese new year and yearning for beauty

Yesterday attended a deepening in Jonathan's house. Turns out it was gorgeous. Filled with beautiful paintings from Asia! On the way back I saw an ad about Chinese new year and wished out loud that I can participate. When I reach home, I find the neighbour downstairs letter to invite me to the Chinese new year at his home. yay

Weekend food

community

I was really inspired when I read about this.

Jessica Gowin Brown "Food for thought:
Poverty exists in many forms, and our market-economy-minded culture causes us to default to thinking of those who are financially less fortunate before we consider all of the many other ways our neighbors may be in need. This is true especially this time of year when the cultural hype of buying things makes us realize how much stuff we have or how much we have-not.
I encourage you to consider this as you offer gifts:
Some are poor in spirit. Lift them up with a smile, a note, a call, a hug as you use a gift to meet them.
Some are poor in skills. Give of your time to teach something new.
Some are poor in human connection. Become their friend as you choose them for your gift. Did you know many people go shopping just because they are lonely?
Some are poor in time. Save them a trip to the store by choosing to give them a gift. I have a friend who has two sets of twins! I know she appreciates every gift that saves her time away from the store, even if she does have the money to buy things for her 4 children.
Some are poor in family. Meeting you while receiving your gift might give them the boost they need to get through an otherwise depressing season while they wait for a loved one to return home or while they wait to go home to their loved one.
Some are poor in community acceptance. Your gift might be the first one your neighbor receives in this community, and it may be the first impression they receive of the community.
Some of our neighbors are poor in health, whether mental health or physical health. Keep them away from the anxiety of shopping this time of year by offering your gifts to them.
When we strive to only give to those who are financially less privileged, we can become blind to the other needs that are right next door. Not all who are suffering are suffering financially.
This is the difference between a gift economy and a charity; A healthy gift economy can fill the emptiness brought on by each one of these forms of poverty. We all have, and we all lack. Let's work together to bring more smiles and joy to ALL members of our community."


I will think of few projects and implement them. I already have in mind free tutoring for children - math. Involve in book sharing.

Turkey - my favourite dishes

1. Borek - filled pastry can be either boiled, baked or fried and fillings vary from spinach and feta to spicy minced chestnut and so on! Needs to be freshly prepared and hot when served.
2. İskender kebap - contains thin and wide strips of meat in tasty tomato sauce with yoghurt and bread.
3. Stuffed oysters - with rice and lemon juice.
4. Roasted chestnuts - everywhere on the street.
5. Turkish pilaf - tastes same as the Romanian one yum yum.
6. Muhammara - spread, made from roasted bell peppers and walnuts. Spicy and concentrated with a good kick.
7. Pasturma sausages
