I had the thought today that I`m a mother. It`s mother`s day and I`m a fur mother! I haven`t thought about it but I`m the proud mother of Kajsa. She is a dog but my dog baby. I hope all mothers (and everyone else) have a good day.
I have been a vegetarian from time to time and when you are you learn how to cook with vegetables. There are many things you can make out of every vegetable. Being a vegetarian is not all about eating raw vegetables. I think vegetarian food often is more delicious than food that contain meat.
Today I made oven baked squash. Squash is a versatile vegetable. It doesn`t taste much but with spices it`s delicious.
I cut the squash into slices. I covered the slices with flour, beaten egg and bread crumbs. I begin with flour then egg then bread crumbs. I added salt and pepper in the egg.
I put the slices on a tray covered with baking paper. I added some butter on them to give them a crunchy surface. I also made a salad consisting of tomatoes and peppers in a tinfoil. I mixed the vegetables with olive oil and spices. The potatoes were bought but they taste like homemade ones. I baked everything in the oven at 200 C for 30 minutes.
Sometimes when you have eaten healthy food you can treat yourself to a little bit of cake. This is a “Princess cake”. We bought this but if you want to make it this is how you do it.
Beginning from the bottom of the cake you take a thin slice of sponge cake and cover it with raspberry jam. Place another thin slice of sponge cake on top of it. Spread a thin layer of custard on it. Cover the second layer with lots of whipped cream. Put a third layer of sponge cake on top of the cream. Cover the whole cake with marzipan.
All that cream.
