Thurs, Aug 19, 2009 - Chicken menus and dessert

While out doing errands, we stopped by a restaurant to try out their menus.
The Hungarian got a large piece of chicken, covered with cauliflower and cheese with rice,
and I got a chicken and mushroom cream sauce with rice.
Dessert was some sort of bread, topped with spiced apple and meringue. Not bad... it's been a while since I've had meringue, so I was quite happy :)

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 - Turo sauce noodles

The Hungarian went foraging and look what he found! So sweet! Isn't he the best? Cracked pepper and salt in olive oil is a great way to eat bread ^_^*
For dinner we tried the túró (kurd cheese) sauce but with tejföl (sour cream) this time... such a difference! It was really rich, so I couldn't finish the whole dish, but I definitely liked it this time :d yum!

The curd cheese kind of looks like a dry cottage cheese.

Tuesday, August 18, 2009 - set menu

We had a set menu today at our favorite restaurant downstairs again.
We had a raspberry lemonade... I'm quite in love with the lemonades on this street!
The soup was a cream of garlic... soooo delicious! :d
This time the main was pork with french fries. Much juicier than the fried chicken.
With a side salad of cucumbers in a very light dressing.

Tuesday, August 18, 2009 - My herbs ;)

I've finally started up herb garden ^_^*

At the local Spar, we found some chives which I splitted into four bunches and rosemary. These were planted and now sitting in the sunniest of our bedroom windows. Unfortunately, most of our windows are facing north, so we don't get much sun :/
But three of the four bunches of chives have taken pretty well and some are even putting out flowers... I'm wondering what color this one will be...
The rosemary isn't looking so genki, but I stopped watering it in the hopes that it'll perk up. It might actually be a cover type instead of upright, but for now I'm just misting it every other day or so.
We also planted green onions and part of a new piece of ginger... I have no idea how the ginger is doing... could be rotting down there for all I know :| ::gulp::
I put some of the green onions in water for a few days and then planted them. Andras was surprised that food from the store could be planted haha! He doesn't eat vegetables very much...
I smuggled in some cilantro, dill and basil seeds from the states. So far, only the basil has sprouted, but I'm quite excited!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009 - Hungarian analgesic

I've started going to the dentist for a root canal treatment... not the most fun :( but a side benefit is having the chance to taste a powdered painkiller... that tastes like vanilla- brilliant! It's mixed with a glass of water and goes does down really well with only a bit of bitterness at the end of the draught! I've also taken the habit of drinking hot milk with powdered cardamom, cinnamon and honey before going to bed :d

Monday, August 17, 2009 - Hot sandwiches

Went to the local butcher's and got some spicy sausage this time... really nice! Decided to make a hot sandwich of sausage, garlic and cheese (I think we had some butter or cream spread)...
I skipped the cheese because it's causing some breakouts around my chin... can't wait for them to go so I can have cheese again! So many delicious cheeses to try!!
As a side we had fried zucchini with paprika, but it became tasteless after the spicy sausage. Next time I'll try a cold cucumber and tomato salad as a side instead ;)
Jó étvágyat!

Sunday, August 16, 2009 - dinner at the Zentai's

At the Zentai's we had gulyasleves (goulash) with beef, carrots, potatoes, white carrots, garlic and celery. Quite nice :)
Homemade re'tes! Poppyseed...
Sour cherry and apple... sooooo much better than the bakery!
