dinner time

This week’s theme seemed to be brassica vegetables. We had everything from cabbage and broccoli to cauliflower. I just learned from wikipedia that the two last named are in fact the flowers of the plants. Who knew?

Tuesday – Kulturhuset

TuesdayTuesday night Morten picked me up from work. We would go to a place called ‘Kulturhuset’ – culture house – which lies right across the street from Brinjas boutique on Islands Bygge. On a rainy day nothing much happens on Islands Brygge but as soon as the suns comes out the place is filled with people sunbathing and taking a dip in the harbour pool. Morten had tortilla chips with cheddar and chicken and 4 nice dips on the side. I went for the tagliatelle with bell pepper, zucchini, chicken and pesto. In case you wonder how this could be a 20-minute-Tuesday – it took about 20 minutes from when we ordered till we got the food. A bit of cheating, but not really… =)

Wednesday – Ground Beef with Cabbage and Cauliflower

WedensdayThis dish really doesn’t fotograph very well. But let me tell you it’s a quick tasteful dish with lots of curry and cumin, two of our favorite spices.

Thursday – Pasta Meat Sauce !

ThursdayProbably my favorite dish ever. And also one we came up with ourselves. The trick is lots of veggies that get the chance to cook at least 30 minutes in the tomato sauce. It makes it very creamy (Morten’s tip!). When all cooked, top it with cubes of mozzarella cheese – delish!

Friday – Bagels

FridayNot really a fish-dish but you when you have a craving for fast food, this one’s at least a healthy decision (at least that’s what we tell each other). Morten likes his with marinated chicken, turkey bacon and humus, and I like mine with turkey breat and chili cream cheese.

Saturday – Pasta Meat Sauce !!

SaturdayI told you it was my favorite dish! Kristian came over to watch a college football game. Kristian and Morten go way back to when they both were swimmers. With speedos and all ;-) This time we kicked it up a notch (an expression I learned through The Sims, how cool?). We would put it in the oven at the end with cheese on top. Lots of cheese!

Sunday – Left Overs with Veal

SundayWe used up all the vegetables such as brocoli and cauliflower and tossed it together with fresh pasta and veal.

This week’s project brings us all to a new level (Can you tell I have seen too many episodes of America’s Next Top Model?). Our plan is is to have soup every single night (to make up for last week and some of the weeks before). So far it goes very well, I’ll keep you posted!


dinner time

My food post, finally! I’m very excited to show you all the things we’ve had for dinner the past week (I’ll skip Monday as we only had hangover pizza, bad pizza, bad!). Hope you’ll enjoy!

Meatballs with potato salad20 minutes – Tuesday: Meat balls with spring onions and a potato salad with cucumber, radish and green pesto dressing.

RoastbeefWednesday’s surprise: This week neither MOrten nor I surprised one another. It was Morten’s dad Ole who invited us over and served roast beef, potatoes and fried onions for us.

Almost MoussakaTomato – Thursday: We had a dish called ‘Almost Moussaka’. Zucchini with ground beef, tomatoes, homegrown thyme, lots of garlic and feta cheese.

Brazilian Salmon StewFriday’s Fish: This amazing recipe I found on Simply Recipes, a food blog I just recently discovered. Nicely cumin-marinated salmon with tomatoes, onion, bell pepper and coconut milk served on brown rice.

Mac & CheeseS.O.B. BurgerYummy/Deluxe Saturday: On our date, I had Mac & Cheese and Morten had an S.O.B. burger. It was fun eating at Hard Rock Café!
