I locked myself in the kitchen all week as I wanted to prepare some stuff for my colleagues and a couple of my best friends and of course for my brother who loves all kind of sweet stuff. I didn’t get the idea however that this will squeeze my energy out completely and bring me the hardest back pains. I swore to myself.. and everyone that I will not get in the kitchen for the next 2 months.. I doubt it.
I’m writing on the kitchen table in my parents’ house at the moment and my mom is making these beautiful and delicious rose cookies ( as she calls them ) and the smell is amazing but even this reminds me how dead I was during the last week.
Anyway following my previous post I wanted to share with you what I cooked for my boyfriend and the presents I prepared for my family and friends. As we are going to celebrate the Christmas holidays separated I decided to make dinner just for both of us. Well this wasn’t easy as he said: “I’ll help with everything” but his help consisted pretty much of sleeping on the couch…of course I didn’t expect anything else.
Of course I did all of it with pleasure: and most of all my present was a Pasta Machine… and I loooved it!! Here’s what we enjoyed.
We started with Sandwiches with Poached eggs and Hollandaise Sauce recipe will follow:
