Sometimes I like to wander on the web. And here’s what I found on Shoko’s amazing blog: Donburi. So when I managed to found aubergine at my local store, I went for it! And to say true it became a popular meal at our place! You should definitively give it a try!

Bechamel peas

Bento
-Steamed romanesco broccoli
Bechamel peas
Risotto (carrots, onion, mushrooms, broccoli)

Sometimes I wonder whether or not to post my everyday bentos. The risotto is yesterday evening’s leftovers. I do not have a proper recipe as I wasn’t the cook! Bear made us the meal yesterday and he rarely measures anything regarding spices. I believe you could go with any risotto recipe already featured here. I added some peas in bechamel and steamed romanesco brocoli.

I found a better way to heat up my meal, avoiding a microwave: I stuck it in an oven for seven minutes at 200°C (to avoid meals to dry up add a glass of boiling water in the oven). Just keep in mind that I have a tiny oven that heats up quick. Have a nice day!

Dinner
Courgette and pea (Indian style dish)
Rustic tomato sauce
-Steamed rice balls coated with sesame seeds
Little toffee cream

Still sunny evenings. The table is outside, and we enjoy to the have dinner with our feet in the grass watching at the sunset. A little dinner for two with candles. Romantic isn’t it?
The meal is quite ordinary, a little courgette dish similar to the courgette Shak I had in a London’s restaurant, some homemade tomato sauce, steamed rice balls and some little toffee puddings for dessert. An nice evening under the summer sky. A little bit of rest before moving out.

Polish bigos

Dinner
Polish bigos
Spätzle
Lentils

Tianjin, Beijin. Eleven hours flight back. A three hours train trip to meet Bear who did a ten hours car trip. Five hours to sleep and then a fifteen hours trip with a car with no air-conditioning for a week of full pleasure in Poland. Back home. With this feeling that one week is too short. That we didn’t have even enough time to see every friend as long as we would have liked to. Not enough time to sit and feel the sun on our face and have the pleasure to be silently one with each other, with this mutual understanding that you share with close friends. Now we are back in France. I wanted to cheer Bear up and make him some bigos. Okay, I know that Alsatian spätzle are not at all Polish, but Bear loves them too! I was rewarded with a kiss for this meal, so! Who cares, if the dishes are not used to be mixed together! I must add, that I thank my dear sister to repeat the spätzle recipe each time I need it…so, I’ll write it down and stop bothering you. Oh, geez, I don’t remember the exact amount of ingredients…well, I’ll phone you first. Sorry!
