Veggie fryday – carrots/morcovi

23 Nov

RO: Mana sus cine uraste legumele!!
Daca ma intrebati asta anul trecut, ridicam doua maini. Daca ma intrebati asta cand eram mica, va dadeam si-o palma 😂 Azi ridic doar una si va chem la masa!

Morcovii nu sunt preferatii mei, nu imi place gustul lor crud, insa vreau sa mananc mai multe legume in general asa ca experimentez in bucatarie diverse retete prin care sa le gatesc in asa fel incat sa mi se para delicioase.

O portie de morcovi pai:
2 morcovi mari
50 g unt
Sare
Piper
Salvie

Am taiat morcovii jumatati si i-am pus la fiert sa se inmoaie putin, dar nu prea mult. 10-15 min de fiebere sunt suficiente, luati o furculita si testati-i: daca intra usor atunci sunt gata.
Am scos morcovii pe un fund (de tocat :)) ) si i-am taiat fasii lungi, ca si cum ar fi cartofi pai.
I-am pus intr-un castron cu untul care s-a topit pentru ca erau inca fierbinti si am pus peste ei, dupa gust, sare, piper si putina salvie.
I-am prajit intr-o tigaie de teflon fara sa mai pun ulei pentru ca ei erau unsi cu unt.

Sincer, nu credeam ca voi manca morcovi prea curand, dar sub forma asta o sa-i gatesc mai des.

EN: Simple Carrots Frites

I’m not a big fan of veggies, but I’m working on it. Carrots are one of my least favourite dishes that’s why I was so impressed about how delicious they turned out. They don’t really taste like carrots anymore, maybe that’s why I like them!! 😂

Carrots for one:
2 big carrots
50 g butter
Salt
Pepper
Sage

Boil the carrots in half until they soften up and you can get a fork through.
Get them out of the water and cut them in long thin sticks, as if you’d cook french fries.
Put them in a bowl with butter, salt, pepper and sage and mix them all together.
Fry them in a non-sticky pan without any oil because they’re soaked in butter.

Enjoy a delicious side dish and try it for your veggie haters friends…you might be the one to bring them on the right track!!

Red & gray glitter nails

3 Nov

Here’s a cool idea for weekend festive nails:
Get a red nailpolish, a grey one and another one with red and grey glitter.

I wanted to have a hint of colour only on my ring fingers, therefore I applied the grey nailpolish in two layers on every nail except those two fingers where I applied one layer of deep red polish.
On top of every nail I added a layer of glitter, and as you can see the base colour brings out different particles from the glitter polish, you could even say I used two different glitter shades!
Don’t forget to add a top coat to protect the colours!

Smart TIP: to get a cheap nailpolish to last longer, use glitter on top. (Glitter polishes wear off harder than a normal polish)

I used cheap nailpolishes for this manicure but I will do it again with better products, maybe to wear a similar idea for the Christmas party!

Here’s what I ended up with, where would you wear this kind of nails?
