J'ai envie de lire en ce moment, j'ai envie de "voyager", de rêver un peu. Le hic, c'est que je suis difficile à satisfaire, et il est rare que j'accroche vraiment à un livre. Je ne compte plus le nombre de livre que j'ai laissé des semaines sur ma table de chevet sans jamais les finir.
J'aime les classiques, la grande littérature, mais elle peut être très ennuyante certaines fois... J'aime bien les livres assez vieux, de l'époque du XVIII ou XIXe, même XXe. Des auteurs comme Jane Austen ou de Zola, ou encore ceux plus modernes de R. Desforge.
Issue de là donc.
Imprimer la recette
- 4 paupiettes de veau
- 1 gousses d'ail
- 1 c.s. huile olive
- 125ml d'eau
- 1 c.s. de vinaigre balsamique
Laissez mijoter 20 minutes environ, en retournant les paupiettes de temps en temps.
I'm hungry of books these days. I want to read, to "travel" and to dream a bit. The thing is, I'm not easy to convince, not satisfied with any book and I don't often get attached to a story. I don't count how many books I've given up on my bedside table for weeks and never finished.
I like classics, great litterature but they may be boring some times, they go on a bit... Really love the XVIIIth and XIXth century stories, as well as XXth which is often more "historical". Authors like Zola, Austen or Desforge.
But since I'm still a teenager, I'm keen on fantasy books, supernatural worlds. I loved Hunger Games by S. Collins, which my cousine made me discover. And of course I've read the most famous ones, that we don't bother to quote anymore. But as I said, I don't like every one of them...
Finally, my passion for cooking lead me to enjoy some cook's work, food critics', and so on. I havn't read many, but I've heard about A. Bourdain, Judith Jones or Ruth Reichl so I guess I'm gonna make up my mind on one of these authors soon.
So, if you have recommandaitons, advices about books you've loved (if you feel we have kind of the same tastes), I'd be thrilled to discover new books : I'm still (and always) looking for some.
I'm currently reading 1984 by G. Orwell, just starting it so don't have a very strong opinion about it, but it seems a very good one.
Today's recipe : Veal Olives, found on Marmiton.org. I'm fan of it. It became our number 1 recipe : it's simple and require not much ingredients and it's delicious and it goes well with pretty much everything from pasta to vegetables including mashed potatoes and rice and grains and...you get it. They diserve their 5 stars (reader's rating)
Adapted from here.
4 servings :
- 4 veal olives
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp veal stock
- 125ml white wine
- 125ml water
- 1 tbsp. mustard
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
In a cocotte, heat olive oil with garlic cloves, thinly chopped. Add veal olives and brown them on every sides.
Add veal stock and whites wine, and water. Add mustard, balsamic vinegar and sitr well to coat the olives.
Let it simmer for about 5 minutes untill alcohol evaporate, turn the heat on low and cover.
Let it cook for 20 minutes, return veal olives from time to time.
I served it with homemade mashed potatoes : peel your potatoes and cook them 30 to 45 minutes (be careful not to preheat the water : start the cooking process with cold water and let it heat with the potatoes, otherwise you'll get a kind of "crust" on the surface of potatoes which is not smooth and makes it bad to eat). Mash it all with a potato-masher (not mixer/blender ! It will make it all elastic and uggly) and add milk until you get the good consitence. Don't forget to add salt and a pinch of nutmeg powder which changes everything....
