I love healthy foods: veggies, whole grains, legumes, fruits. I usually avoid sugar and dairy products, but I still crave sometimes flavors of childhood.
Today we had a tasty meals. Sometimes when the fridge is almost empty, you can you can go to the pantry in search of treasure.
For breakfast we (my kids and me) had millet with soy sauce (my husband usually eats cereal). For lunch french toasts (children), for dinner dill potatoes, peas and garbanzo beans and for desert: soft rols with pastry cream. I found recipe on the internet:


This is the recipe:

500 grams flour
42 grams yeast (fresh)
20 grams honey
2 eggs
250 grams milk
7 grams salt
75 grams butter

Mix Milk + yeast + honey + eggs
Add flour
Add the soft butter
Add salt

Knead for about 10 minutes.
Leave covered for about 1 hour in warm place.

Pastry cream

4 tablespoons of soft butter

1/2 cup of powdered sugar

1 yolk

1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar

400g of creem cheese

Thoroughly mix ingredients.

Divide the dough into buns 50 grams each.
Make boule shapes.

Rest 20 minutes covered. Punch down the dough with it to create a hole to fill with pastry cream, do this just before putting them in the oven.

Bake at 240°C (460F) for about 10 minutes.

Today is my husband’s name-day. This is a special day. I cooked “lazy pierogi” for us. Our kitchen is messy now 🙂 I have a lot of things to do: cooking, cleaning, laundry.

I like evenings when everything is all done: I can watch LOST (I am addicted to LOST 🙂 ) – I’m kidding), sew on a machine, read, make postards, play with polymer clay etc. But before I will do something for me, I need to clean my house. OK, It’s time to go.

He said: I want to play with Ella (she is almost 5-years old daughter of our friends). This is my right!
I wonder what he will say in 15 years??????
