Lots of food

I haven't posted about food for some time now, but I'm making up by writing about lots of food in this post :-)

Yesterday I had hot chocolate & a yummy sandwich for dinner. To me, that's one of the signs that tells me that autumn is here... It's one of the coziest feelings I know to have your hand around a nice hot cup of chocolate.

I also made today's lunch yesterday. It's a recipe I got from a relative, who said that it's her favourite lunch right now and that I should try it... I altered her recipe a bit & got a simple easy lunch.

Tzatziki-styled sauce
200 g chickpeas
100 g goat cheese, chopped into small dices
½ red onion, chopped
2 - 3 dm of a cucumber, grated or sliced
1 dl creme fraiche

Mix all the ingredients until you have a tzatziki-looking sauce. If you want, you can use kidney beans instead of chickpeas & fetta cheese instead of goat cheese. The original recipe also included a a garlic wedge, but I'm not a big fan of garlic so I didn't use that.
Serve with some slices of turkey, kassler or whatever meat you want.

I'm looking forward to coming home from university and a having nice relaxed Friday-night tonight. I've catched a cold and I feel like staying home and watching a movie and eating homemade pizza. It seems like all families have their own list of must-have-toppings on a pizza. What's yours?
You know they saying "less is more"? I sure don't apply that when it comes to pizza toppings.
Toppings on my pizza:
Tomato sauce
Fresh tomatoes
White mushrooms (not the fresh ones, the ones on a tin)
Fetta or goat cheese
Grated cheese on top

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Your version of tzatziki sounds interesting and I will give this a try. I had tzatiki some years back...what a delicious foodstuff! What made it even more special is that my sister's boyfriend made it for dinner. He is of greek heritage, and I felt that a whole new world of cuisine had been introduced to me. ;-)

Hi Elizabeth,
It looks like you've enjoyed an amazing trip to lots of wonderful places. Dublin looks so pretty.
I like all sorts of combinations on pizza, but a particular favorite of mine is a barbecue chicken one, with purple onions. Not really a pizza, but it's very good. I also like roasted red peppers, garlic and feta together, and the traditional, tomato and basil.

yum, thanks for the recipe on the tzatziki style sauce. I make the traditional tzatziki quite a lot, but the idea of trying a chickpea based one is also tempting!
