Chocolate and banana treats, rose hip jam

Tea treat
Chocolate and banana treats
Rose hip jam on homemade brioche
-Freshly juiced orange
-Chicory beverage

Okay banana isn’t local, but from time to time I like to have some. Here I mixed it with some chocolate mousse to please my greedy sweet tooth of mine. As it wasn’t enough (I’m really greedy) I hopped to my cupboard and went to fetch a little treasure: our homemade rose hip jam. Did you ever do some? It starts with a walk on the hills to pick up the fruits, then it continues with two nights of cooking! But it’s worth it. Just taste it on a slice of brioche…

P.S.: Mum, here’s the chocolate mousse I was talking about the other day.

Fried parsnip

Dinner
Puffed sauerkraut
Fried parsnip
-Boiled carrots from mum’s garden
-Ogorki

I’m trying to catch up a little. So this post isn’t about our favourite puffed sauerkraut, but just to point out a discovery of ours. Bear is really reticent to eat up his parsnip usually. But this changed when he came up with the idea to prepare them as chips! Sometimes, he really comes up with nice ideas!

Rice sandwiches, home-grown vegetables

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Bento content
Rice sandwiches stuffed with mushroom pâté (homemade)
-Mum’s garden carrot and parsnip
Lentils salad
-Dried fig, almonds, cranberries, and crystallised ginger
-Two little Alsatian biscuit (from Alice)

It has been a while since I last posted. Sorry about that but I’m quite busy lately and it seems it’s not going to change much. A friend of us popped in for dinner a few days ago and brought me some of these traditional Alsatian biscuits, and as we didn’t eat the full box on that evening I still had a few to squeeze in my lunch box. The vegetables are mum’s home-grown one’s, I find them so tiny and so cute, and if you had the chance to taste them you’d find them incredibly tasty and flavoured. It just wonderfully matched with my mushroom rice sandwiches. And just a little tip to enhance your rice sandwiches : use glutinous rice!
