Trip to Pazin, Croatia

Very contrasting to the sea-side typical towns: this one is gray, cold and sad. After visiting it, one would better appreciate the sunny coastal places.

Semolina with milk - recipe (including photos)

Very easy to make it, but very tasty. I loved it when I was a child and I still do :)

  • 600 milliliters of milk
  • 60 grams of semolina
  • 1 spoon of sugar
  • vanilla sugar
  • jam

Mix the milk with the sugar and let it boil.

Sprinkle the semolina over the boiling milk, mixing continuously, but slowly, for few minutes.

You can eat it warm or you can put it in forms and eat it with jam few hours later.

Eating out - Brasserie du Cercle, Luxembourg Ville

The food was great - Luxembourgish typical food, if you asked us.

You can easily feed four persons from the full menu of two.

The price is around Eur 80 for two and for all the food below.

Terrine de chevreuil

Toast aux champignons des bois

The food was brought to us like this:

..and we've put it on the plates:

Civet de lièvre façon luxembourgeoise

Ragout de marcassin à l'ancienne

Glace à la bière parfumée à la gueuze framboise

Pomme au four caramélisée à la cannelle accompagnée de glace vanille

Hotel review - Hotel Filipini, Porec, Croatia

This hotel is more like a Bed and Breakfast.

It wasn't our preferred choice, but the reviews were very good, so we decide it to try it.

Bad decision...the rooms were very cold, rather small and beds were horrible (we changed few rooms because the beds were squeaking), the internet barely worked and the breakfast was poor.

The Hotel is far from Porec, so if we don't have a car it will be difficult to reach.

Chicken in tomato sauce - recipe (including photos)

  • chicken
  • 250 grams of tomato sauce (or tomatoes in sauce)
  • 1 spoon of fresh cream
  • 10 grams of butter
  • laurel
  • thyme
  • garlic
  • 1 onion
  • salt
  • pepper

In a covered pan fry the chicken with half of the butter and the laurel, for 10-15 minutes.

In a separate pan fry the chopped onion, the garlic and the remaining butter for a few minutes.

Add the tomato juice and the thyme over the onion and let it cook for 10 minutes.

Add the fresh cream and let it boil for almost 5 minutes.

Add the chicken over the tomato composition and put it in the oven at 220 Celsius degrees for 10-15 minutes.

We ate it with pasta, but you can combine it with potatoes or vegetables.
