A Very Merry Christmas to everyone who's celebrating!


And because I haven't done this for so long, here's a link to my favourite Christmas Carol, "Ich steh' an deiner Krippen here," words by Paul Gerhard, music (of course) by Johann Sebastian Bach.

English translation of the first two verses behind the cut. )

When darling Dago asked for spring-rolls instead of veggie strudel for supper tonight, this is what I did. Surprisingly enough, it turned out well. Go me. ;-)Read more... )

ETA: Forgot the soy sauce.

This is a recipe I adapted from Cornucopia's Carrot & Red Lentil Soup. Made it today and it was really nice.

Apparently, both chickpeas and garlic help lower your cholesterol levels too, so this is even healthy. And tastes a bit like hummus. If hummus were a soup and contained carrots.

I realise I haven't been posting about books in such a long time, when I've had some such good ones lately.

Because Shem recommended Kate Morton, I read The House At Riverton )

Meg recommended Sookie Stackhouse, but the library didn't have the first volume so instead I took out the first two novels in Charlaine Harris' Harper Connelly-series )

Hmm. What else have I been reading? I can't of anything that stuck out really at the moment. I'm on the waiting list for The Lost Symbol and I'll be bound to have a lot to say on that. I hope I'll get it this month. I was weak enough to cave in to the badness and order it from the library, but I'm not gonna buy it, so I'll just have to wait. I've been moved up to the first place now though, so it shouldn't be too long.

I'm also on the list for the first book in the Outlander series. So many people were raving about it I thought I'd better check it out. I'll have to read it in German though, they didn't have any English copies.

Oh, and I'm currently haunted by a Polish schlager from the 60s - Będziesz moją panią (Click at your own risk.) I plan to write a songfic about it. Like totally. Can't you just see Darcy crooning this to his lady love? In Polish of course. Darcy's fluent, dontcha know it.

Normally, I take the train into the city centre because it's faster and cheaper (I have a ticket with my uni ID) but today, sister and I were taking the car because we were running late (you know, the train only is faster if you catch it) and she had an interview. So of course I had to leave the car at a garage because free parking space in our city centre - so not happening. The garage works this way, you get a ticket when you enter and you hand it back to the cashier when you exit and they can see how much you have to pay. So today I discovered that on the back of the ticket there was a voucher for a free cappucchino at McDonalds. I'm not a big fan of the Mac, but I looove their cappucchino. So yeah. We did our business in the city, I got my cappucchino etc. etc.

On leaving the garage, the cashier notices I've ripped off the voucher bit, sees I'm having a cappucchino paper cup and asks, 'would you like a couple more cappucchino vouchers?' I say, 'sure, if you have any,' thinking maybe I'll get one or two extra. So he hands me my change and thick wad of what turns out to be old parking tickets with the vouchers still on them. My sister counted them and it was 20 vouchers, valid till January. All parking tickets from this morning, where people didn't rip off the coffee voucher.

How nice is that? I know a coffee at the Mac isn't the world, and they only cost one euro regular, but still. What a damn nice guy.

This I promised to [livejournal.com profile] caror. The story of this Turkish dish is, as I have heard it, that a Turkish housewife was sitting at home, doing laundry, minding her own business, when suddenly, her husband comes home from the mosque and says, 'Surprise, dearest, I brought the imam home for dinner.' She's all 'ARRRGH! Men! You know it's laundry day and the pantry is friggin' empty!' but she wants to do her best for the imam so she checks and sure enough, there's nothing but a couple of eggplants and random veggies in the pantry. So she just cooks what comes to her mind and hopes it will be alright, and as a good housewife, anxiously waits in the kitchen whilst the men eat. After the dinner, her husband comes back into the kitchen and says, 'Don't worry, dearest, it's alright. Imam bayildi - the imam was knocked out of his socks with delight )

What I like especially about this dish is that it's vegan, easy to make, very tasty and can be heated up the next day without problems.
