HIKING GOALS

👩‍🍳What a day for all of us. Hiking goals in Purkersdorf Natur Park with hubby and daughter. Around the nature park- uphill and downhill. The Purkersdorf Natur Park is easily accessible by car and train, and in addition to several animal enclosures, also has a lookout point or view Deck which is made out of wood.

Hiking goals, looking for wild mushrooms

Looking for mushrooms. We learned something today about mushrooms. From edible one to poisonous one. Biologists actually say that mushrooms are more like animals than plants. If you walk through the forest with common sense, you see trees, shrubs, grasses and mushrooms growing in between, then they also grow upwards like a tree. So you might think that mushrooms are also plants. But then you immediately notice a few differences. Mushrooms cannot. If you put it negatively, they are parasites, just like animals and humans. We don’t get our energy from sunlight, we have to eat; we gain energy by chemically breaking down existing biomass. And this is how the mushroom works it also feeds by breaking down and metabolizing foreign biomass. Either dead plant remains that he gets out of the ground, or he immediately attaches himself to the living plant and enters into a kind of partnership, a symbiosis. But the important thing is that it breaks down foreign biomass, just like animals. Therefore the mushroom is not a plant.

SALMON HEAD

👩‍🍳Salmon is one of the most valued edible fish today and is an integral part of many kitchens. Whether raw, cooked, baked or grilled, the salmon can be used in a variety of ways. In addition to healthy fats, salmon contains a good portion of protein and lots of fat-soluble vitamins A and D. Here is my salmon head recipe for today’s lunch on this gloomy-rainy Sunday. For you to try if you love salmon cooked in sour soup with romaine lettuce. Happy prepping and enjoy.

OVEN CHICKEN ASADO EMPANADA

👩‍🍳My very own version of making EMPANADA, actually another version. Filipino empanadas usually contain ground beef or chicken meat, potato, chopped onion, and raisins somewhat similar to the Cuban “picadillo” in a sweetish wheat flour dough. Some Filipinos are not partial to the sweetish flavour notes and prefer empanadas that are closer to the Hispanic versions. There are doughy baked versions, as well as flaky fried versions. Often, to lower costs, potatoes are added as a filler, and olives– relatively expensive in the Philippines—are omitted.

ARROZ CON POLLO

👩‍🍳Since rice is relatively neutral in taste, it is an ideal combination for the spicy spices of Mexican cuisine. Even dishes cooked Poco Picante goes well with simple, cooked rice. To add a little extra pizzazz, white rice is often cooked with a little chili powder. It is advisable to start with a teaspoon of the mild chilli powder per cup of uncooked rice. The quantity and character of the chili powder can then be adjusted to suit your own taste. I added Sambal Oelek instead. This rice is an ideal combination to omelettes, meat-like chicken, Asada, and pork chops. Spanish rice or Mexican rice is richer. Here the rice is cooked in chicken broth with turmeric seasoned salt. Thanks for dropping by. Happy prepping and guten appetit!

PURE VEGGIES

BULGOGI EGGPLANT

👩‍🍳Bulgogi is a Korean recipe made from beef, sesame seeds and rice that is cooked in a wok. But I go well with eggplant too. Try it. The eggplant is a healthy vegetable and impresses with its purple colour. Eggplant inspires with their purple colour. Since they hardly have their own taste, they look good in almost every dish. In order for the taste buds to be perfect, a few things should be considered when processing. Eggplants mostly in Germany are also known as egg fruit, plum, eggplant or Spanish eggs this is very suitable for roasting, steaming, filling and baking in foil or as a puree. do you know that 100 grams of eggplant have only 4 g of carbohydrates, almost no fat and only 25 calories. Eggplant actually comes from India but have been at home in European latitudes since the 17th century. Italy and Spain, in particular, are among the main growing countries. How to know if eggplant is fresh: Make sure you have smooth, shiny skin and a crisp green stem when buying.

OVEN TROUT/ RON (son) VISITED us YESTERDAY

👩‍🍳Fish not only provides a lot of vitamins but also a lot of high-quality protein. Fish should be eaten at least twice a week, although the trout are particularly recommended due to its high proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids. The trout in the oven tastes very aromatic. A recipe that just works as simple as that. You just need 5 ingredients for this recipe namely rosemary, flour, olive oil, salt and pepper.

BEEF MEAT

QUARTER POUNDER with ONION GRAVY

👩‍🍳So what is this all about? Quarter Pounder is a hamburger, a 100% Beef Patty. I made without cheese just red onion gravy, green lettuce, ox heart tomato and the sauce are made out of sweet onion bacon sauce and catsup. Because a quarter pounder with cheese is caloric enough doubling that sandwich gives you a half-pound of beef and more saturated fat than you need in a day. If you are Burger lover this recipe is for you.
