polish golden autumn and french onion cream soup

and we have “the golden autumn”, as we called such a time like this in Poland.

the golden autumn it’s not only the trees changing colours and nice weather.
it’s tremendously clean blueness of sky. but deeper than in the summer.
clouds are puffy and white but they don’t resemble topping of whipped cream in the cup of icecream any more.
the rays fall at an different angle than they do in the summer. it seems they are even colder.

if you look around you can see every cast of browns, reds, oranges, yellows.

wherever you are.
and I am here, looking at the orchard with gilding apple trees.
I’m opening the window to let this smell of the autumn in the flat.

I’m going out to smell this flavour of leaves.
I’m wading in settled leaves and turning my face towards the sun.
warm rays warm my cheeks up. I’m closing my eyes, listening the voice of the wind culling leaves from trees.
this rustle is making me quieten.

what my husband is able to do – cream soup and white pizza

pale blue walls around me.
typical round lamps above.
metal beds and deteriorated small metal bedside tables.
tiny plastic cups with tablets and pills.

I hate being in the hospital. even if I’m sure that they’re goting to find the reason I have tummy ache and cure me.
on the other hand I love my charming husband. he is able to do things that are beyond his imagination. incredible.

what has he done? beetroot cream soup and amazing pizza.

don’t be delighted: cetring in a hospital is terrible. tasteless, without basic seasoning.
put on weight here – mission impossible.

Kruidnoten (Kruidnoot) – the quickest and easiest gingerbreads

funny name: Kruidnoten or Kruidnoot

funny, because it derives from Dutch. no idea what it means. but I know that is the name of small ball-shaped spice cookies, which are given away by Zwarte Pietów, Black Peter during Sinterklaas – Santa Claus. 5th of December in the Netherlands and 6th in Belgium.

is this recpe the original one? I don’t know. I found it somewhere in Internet. if it’s not – I don’t bother – I don’t care. they are very similar, delicious, and, most importantly, the quickest, and the easierst gingerbreads I have ever made. they are perfect if you don’t have much time to do gingerbreads that are time-consuming.

Kruidnoten (Kruidnoot)

 

 

I can smell the specific scent of spice. cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cardamon.

the warm, light kitchen. the oven on.

masculine, manful, caring hands around my waist. kisses on my neck. I felt Christmas at the time. they are definitely coming.

for a hungry husband – beef stew with potatoes and ginger

sad autumn this year.

what dull weather. grey every day. even after my daily walk doesn’t make be happier. sad again. my thoughts and my guitar.

now I see I have to  re-string…

 

 

… and this recipe is for my hungry husband. ta dam.

 

 

 

 

 


one frosty day of autumn and the chickpea and tomato soup with cinnamon

7 am. window shade up. grey outside.

twigs, leaves and grass frosted over. frostily.

dull colour of sky above. and cloudlets of vapour from mouth. clank of keys and put a stocking cap on a head. quick march and scrunching underfoot. briskly morning.

so the perfect filling and warm soup for a day like today is the chickpea and tomato soup with cinnamon. soup again, I know. however, autumn is the great season to cook soups. so is winter, but there we cook another kind of soups.

well, now I leave you with this excellence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


the quickest, the easiest version of a pumpkin cream soup – No. 1

humid autumn. dirty, dismal and sad leaves are lying on a wet ground. it’s raining. probably dull sky above naked trees in my garden has taken umbrage at the earth. or at me. well. it’s possible. I am chesty so I caught a cold again.

5th coffee to keep my mind awake and the quickest, the easiest version of a pumpkin cream soup.

there are plenty of recipes. and every each and one of them is way-out. but if you have just some pumpkin and ginger you will be able to do it. admittedly, I had all ingredients to do the pumpkin soup, full of all these ingredients I missed this time. however, that soup is delicious and I can strongly recommend you this one.

 

 


in the feasts and weekdays – roasted chicken

I love out-of-the-way, rugged places. For me, holidays are about the experiences, and the people, and the memories, rather than sitting on a nice beach getting tanned. I try to plant myself where I am and embrace what is there in front of me. 
~Evelyn Glennie

in front of me was a beautiful beach with fabulous palms on it. and I really didn’t think I must be there. I thought I need to see more places and stop in more cafés and taste more dishes. Spain is perfect to do these things.

I’m back.

sorry I didn’t alert you.

yes, I was in Spain and I’m here with my head full of pictures and memories, but I’ll write about it later.

I’m tired and my camera is still in the camera case.

for this reason today I will give you the recipe for Succulent Roast Chicken With Vegetables “on my/your plate”.

have you ever seen such a crisp crust?


perfect soup for the busy doing whatever they want

Objects in pictures should so be arranged as by their very position to tell their own story.
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

that’s exactly what I think during taking pictures for my dishes..

well, yes, I am busy young wife.

I always do everything on the run: cook, eat, learn, take a shower, do my housework, do shopping, walk (even if want to slow down).
I live on the run.

and, of course, in this whole scrabble with time I try to find a little time for comfort zone. I mean reading a book, cooking or baking and getting a bang out of it.

for this reason I decided to start writing my blog: not to add another obligation, but to coerce myself to take a break in my hurry-up!-life. because now I have to find time to arrange a dish, take pictures, write a recipe… it is time-consuming, bu it’s definitely well worth the effort.

here you are light healthy soup. it’s time-consuming, but it does on its own. so I can just be laid up now.

perfect soup for the busy doing whatever they want.
