Jede anständige Bloggerin muss mal ein komplett schwarzes Outfit posten, also hiermit poste ich meins 🙂

Bei der Gelegenheit wollte ich auch zum Ausdruck bringen, dass ich es unheimlich schwer finde, einen EINFACHEN schwarzen Pulli zu finden. Ich habe wirklich lange gesucht, und immer hatte er entweder einen Reisverschluss, oder Pailletten, oder Muster, oder V-Ausschnitt, oder war 100% Acryl. Alles K.O. Faktoren. Den hier habe ich diesen Sommer bei Topshop gefunden, es ist das einzige Kleidungsstück der britischen Marke, das ich besitze, und bin ziemlich zufrieden.

Hoffentlich Ihr auch mit den Fotos  🙂

Bis zum nächsten Mal,

Each decent Blogger has to have posted a complet black outfit once, and here I present you mine 🙂

I have now also the opportunity of expresing how difficult I think it is to find an EASY black pullover. I really looked for it for a long time, but it had always something like a zip, sequins, some pattern, V-neckline or was 100% acrylic. Every one of them K.O factors. This one I found this summer in Topshop, is the only thing I have from the British brand and I’m pretty satisfied with it.

I hope you too with the fotos 🙂

Till next time,

Cannelloni like at home…

19_caneloni 013_2

I sometimes have the problem that I cook too much and then I don’t know what to do with the rest of it. This recipe helps me with that problem. Leftovers from a turkey, chicken roast or from a chicken and beef soup are the basics for making this cannelloni.

My dad does them every year in Christmas with the leftovers of the 1000 kg turkey that my mum cooks for Christmas Eve 😀 and that’s why they feel like home every time I cook them. It’s a very easy recipe, it just takes time putting the “rolls” together, so let’s get to it 😉

Ingredients for 6 servings (4 cannelloni each)

  • 1 roasted chicken meat
  • 200gr foie gras
  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 500g lasagne pasta sheets
  • 1l milk
  • 100gr unsalted butter
  • 1’5 onions, chopped
  • 3Ts flour
  • parmesan
  • salt, pepper and nutmeg

Preparation

Chop the roasted chicken meat and the hard boiled eggs in dices. Then mix the meat, foie gras and eggs in a bowl. Reserve in the fridge.

Bring a large pan of water to a boil, add salt and cook the pasta sheets one by one for 3 or 4 minutes. You want to soften them, but not to over cook them. Drain and lay them on a wet tea towel, you’ll have to be careful, they like to stick to each other 😉 Cut the pasta sheets in halves. I always buy lasagna sheets, if there are some left I can use them for something else.

To make the canellonni, take a fresh pasta sheet and spread about 1 full Ts of the chicken mixture over the middle of the pasta sheet and roll up. Transfer the rolled cannelloni to the casserole. Repeat with the other 23 sheets.

For the bechamel. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook until onion is soft. Add flour, season with salt and fresh grated nutmeg, and cook, stirring, until the mixture is pale golden with a nutty aroma. Whisking constantly, add half the milk. Add the remaining milk and whisk until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce comes to a boil and thickens.

Cover the cannelloni with the bechamel and sprinkle with fresh grated parmesan. Bake in a preheated 180ºC oven for 20 minutes until cheese is browned.

Hope you like it!

2. Cut the pasta sheets in half, they should be at least four by six inches. Bring a large pan of water to a boil, add 3 tablespoons of salt and cook the pasta sheets for 3 to 4 minutes. You want to soften them, but not overcook them. Drain, then lay them on a wet tea towel. Sprinkle with some water, cover with another wet tea towel before adding a second layer of pasta to prevent them from sticking.

3. Put 1 ½ cups Simple Tomato Sauce in the bottom of a large casserole dish (9 x 14 x 2 inches).

4. To make your cannelloni, take a fresh pasta sheet, put it on your work surface and with a towel or paper towel pat it dry. With a spatula, spread about ¼ cup of the chicken mixture over the middle of the pasta sheet, leaving one inch at the top and bottom. Roll up in jelly-roll style. Transfer the rolled cannelloni to the casserole. Repeat with the other sheets.

The little striped dress

16_anna 013

Dress: Boutique by Jaeger via asos (ähnlich hier)| Booties: Ganni via asos | Bag: Zara

Ich wollte grade triumphierend schreiben, dass ich auf heutigen Bildern nichts von Zara trage, aber ich sehe grade, dass es mir auch heute wieder nicht gelungen ist: die Tasche!…

Die Hauptrolle spielt jedoch das Kleid, und darüber wollte ich schreiben. Eigentlich mag ich gar keine Kleider und trage sie recht selten, aber in dieses habe ich mich sofort verliebt, und das aus einem sehr einfachen Grund: es ist gestreift. Der Preis lag jedoch weit über meinen Möglichkeiten, also habe ich es auf meine Merkliste gesetzt und einfach so lange gewartet, bis ich es mir leisten konnte 🙂 Geduldigsein hat sich mal wieder gelohnt!

Bis zum nächsten Mal,

A.

—————————————————————-

I wanted to write triumphantly that I’m not wearing anything from Zara at the Fotos today, but i’m seeing right now that I was today also not successful: the bag!…

The dress is playing today the leading part and I wanted to write about it. Actually I don’t like dresses and I wear them rarely, but with this one I fell in love instantly, and that is because a very easy reason: it’s striped. The prize was above my possibilities, so I put it in my wishlist and waited till I could afford it 🙂 Beeing patient was again totally worth!

Till next time,

A.

Don’t believe me

Habe ich gesagt, ich wäre von der karierten Hose geheilt?

Tja, ich habe gelogen. Oder besser gesagt, das habe ich auch selbst geglaubt, bis ich DIE von Zara gesehen habe. Aus einem nicht elastischen Stoff, schön geschnitten und wesentlich dezenter als das knallige Miranda-Exemplar von Mango. Ihr werdet sicherlich verstehen, dass ich da nicht nein sagen konnte 🙂

Zum Rest gibt es dann nicht mehr viel zu sagen – der Pulli ist vom letzten Winter und ich liebe seinen Grauton, der leicht ins Grünliche geht, und die weinroten Schuhe sind so alt, dass ich gar nicht mehr weiß, wann ich sie gekauft habe 🙂

—————————————————————-

Did I say that I was healed from the tartan check pants?

Well, I lied. Or better said, I belived it myself too, till I saw these ones from Zara. Made off a non-elastic fabric, nice cut and considerably more discreet than the gaudy Miranda-exemplar from Mango. You would for sure understand that I couldn’t say no 🙂

I can not say much more about the rest of the clothes – the pullover it’s from last winter and I love the gray tone that goes a little bit to green. And the wine red shoes are so old that I don’t even know when I bought them 🙂

Chicken Wonton

wonton 019_2

I had yesterday a dinner party at a friend’s house. We assigned the courses so the host didn’t have so much work to do alone. I was in charge of the appetizers and dessert.

One of the appetizers were these chicken wontons. Long ago I saw a similar recipe in Pinterest and I bought some wonton wrappers so I could do something alike and yesterday was the day 😀

It’s an easy and fast recipe. You can put everything you like inside, wonton wrappers work quite good with everything. I’m thinking of something diferent for tonights dinner with the rest of the wrappers I didn’t use yesterday.

Ingredients

  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • sesam oil
  • a chicken breast
  • 10 asparagus
  • 4 spring garlic
  • 1 mozzarella
  • salt and pepper

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Spray the muffin tin with the olive oil cooking spray. Push a wonton wrapper in each muffin tin.

Cut the asparagus, spring garlic and chicken in little dices. Take a wok or a pan and  sauté the chicken first, with sesam oil. When done take out the wok/pan and sauté the vegetables. Add the chicken again and sauté all together for 2 minutes, now you can add salt and pepper. Let the mixture cool down.

Cut the mozzarella in dices as well and mix it with the other ingredients in a bowl.

Now it’s time to fill in the wrappers, don’t put too much or they won’t close. It’s supposed to be a bite, we don’t want them too big for our mouths 😉

Put the muffin tin in the oven for about 15 min until the ends are slightly browned and you’ll be done. Serve hot with a soy sauce dip.

Bad body day strikes again

anna 021

Oberteil: COS | Rock: Zara | Stiefel: Zara | Parka: Zara

Heute wollte ich Euch wieder ein Kleidungsstück zeigen, welches ich anziehe, wenn mir mein Spiegelbild nicht ganz gefällt. Das generelle Prinzip ist – das zu betonen, was uns gefällt und davon ablenken, womit wir nicht zufrieden sind. Ich persönlich mag meine Beine, also sind enge Jeans und Röcke meine besten Freunde 🙂 Diesen Rock finde ich ganz toll, weil er aus einem ziemlich steifen Stoff genäht ist und an sich eine Form hat, also kann darin die nicht immer perfekte Form der Trägerin gut verschwinden 🙂

Das langarmige T-Shirt von COS kennt ihr bereits, das passt einfach zu allem und wird hier bestimmt häufiger erscheinen.

DIY Bead & Chain Necklace

image3xxl_2

I did it again, looking around in asos found this beautiful necklace that was screaming DIY and couldn’t help it! I’m really into chains, and with these beads you can play a lot with the colours and try lots of combinations.

You’ll need:

  • 15 faceted glas beads 6×4
  • 15 faceted glas beads 8×6
  • 15 faceted glas drop breads 10×15
  • 50 cm silver chain 14×10
  • 15 silver chain links from a 6,5×4 chain
  • 29 silver chain links from a 3,4×5 chain
  • 15 headpins +-30mm
  • 1 silver extension chain +-70mm
  • 1 silver clasp
  • 2 little rings

badbodyday 065

Start by looking for the middle link on all the chains, we would start in the middle and continue to the sides to centre the necklace. Place a headpin across the bead A, then chain 1, bead B, chain 2, bead C and close the headpin in a ring, not completely closed. Repeat till you have the 15 groups of beads ready. When done, take chain 3 and place it at the end of each headpin, leaving one link empty between ends. (Click images to enlarge)

With all chains tied up you’ll just need to place the clasp at one end of chain 2 and the extension chain at the other end, and you’ll be done.

I’ve done already 2, wich one do you like most?
