Weekend cooking

Weekend cooking

Beautiful weekend with our normal activities... it seems like it hasn't happened in such a long time... probably two months or even more with all the traveling in March and April and the visitors in May, plus some bad weather...  it means playing tennis, gardening, going to the seaside, and it also means some nice cooking, bread making and pasta. I made two breads: a large muesli and rye bread for breakfast, with a little addition of sugar to obtain a very savory bread, and a classic focaccia, always a success. With the temperatures rising it is so much easier to prepare bread. The risong is do much easier than in the winter. This time for the pasta, instead of making ravioli I made lasagna with my classic pasta recipe, rolled with my pasta machine, some salmon (it's not often that there is some nice Hokkaido salmon! But recently I found some) and some fresh baby spinach, just add a bit of cream, bake and it's ready. Really simpler than making the ravioli because you don't have to dry the filling and wait for it to cool down and it is super delicious.

I wish you a great week ahead!
