In Topic: The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

15 June 2014 - 10:38 AM

Thank you, everyone.  It feels great to be missed and fabulous to be happy!  :)


Tonight we simply had fresh local cheese from a neighbour drizzled with olive oil from another neighbour, topped with local capers, air-dried ham (Croatia's is better than Italy's prosciutto), yummy pickles and an incredibly moist, low carb banana bread with chocolate swirl.  Yes, bananas indeed are high in carbs but the quantity is low.  We are now doing the Mediterranean diet alongside low carbs.


Oh, did I mention the food here is spectacular?  No GMOs allowed.  :)

Tonight is the first time posting since moving to Croatia.  Wow - it sounds great even saying that!  :)  No more winter!!!!!!!!!


We are settling in (finally, after a very busy few weeks).  The new kitchen will be installed soon.  Until then, I have been using a small outdoor oven and a hot plate.  There is an outdoor wood-burning oven but it has been too hot outside to use it.  So, tonight we had pulled pork (in the slow cooker - I was lazy pants!), roasted cauliflower with garlic, thyme and Parmesan and a simple cabbage slaw.  Nothing earth shattering, but being living in the Mediterranean is completely different and absolutely exhilarating!  :D  I am in love.  :wub:

6 cm of snow in the forecast for tonight. So done with this winter. Where is spring?

Snowed again last night - this is sickening!  We have had snow on the ground continuously since November 1.  However, it has reached -1C this afternoon and the sun is shining.  It could be worse!  ;)

Thanks for your lovely comments!  Yes, it is actually a little rough at this point, trying to get things accomplished while under the emotional stress of leaving family behind.  But we both know Croatia is where we belong, where we feel the most at home and the healthiest.  I look forward to settling in and cooking with astonishingly fresh and local ingredients including food from the sea!  :D
