Hello everyone ! How are you today ? What kind of weather do you have today ? Here it’s quite a fall time weather, not to hot, not to cold, with a little bit of sunshine. Tell me, what do you traditionally eat for Sunday ? Is it a traditionnal meal from your country ? Or something from another country ? Or is it just different every week ? At home, we don’t really have a special Sunday menu, we eat the same as during the week. Sometimes, we have something a little bit more special, my Mom cooks one chicken from our garden, my brother peels off some veggies from the garden( again) for a salad, and I bake a dessert ( because I love baking and desserts 🙂 ) But we don’t have chicken and cake to eat for everyday,, for every Sunday, that’s why I found this kind of menu quite special. So today, I wanted to share with you what a Sunday menu could look like for me. I’ll show three recipes, one salad, one chicken dish and one cake. I hope you’ll like them and let’s get started !
For this delicious salad, you’ll need 1 lettuce, 1 cucumber, 1 carrot, green beans and shallots.
Wash all your veggies, peel them off and cut them in a bowl. Add some shallots (mine were dried, but you can use fresh shallots). And finally, add oil and vinegar and mix everything. It’s ready. 🙂 Enjoy !
You’ll need chicken thighs, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, some yogurt and milk, paprika, garlic, herbs and butter.
First, prepare the sauce with the yogurt, the milk, paprika, garlic and herbs. Mix all these ingredients to get a creamy-liquid sauce. Leave it aside.
Pre-cook your potatoes and carrots by steaming.
In the meantime, cook the chicken into a cast iron casserole with some butter. Add the sauce and mushrooms. When veggies are cooked, add them to the mixing. Cover with a lid and let it stew.
Just make sure to stir the mixing sometimes, to prevent it from sticking to the casserole bottom.
Wait until the meat is cooked(and don’t woory about leaving it to long, chicken meat is never to much cooked)
Here it is ! Honestly, this is some easy to make but so yummy !! I wish I could eat that more often. 😉
For this cake, you’ll have to prepare one chocolate cake and one almond cake. Let’s start with the chocolate one.
Ingredients for the chocolate cake:
-1 teaspoon of baking soda
Mix all the ingredients together until creamy; and bake at the oven for about 45 minutes at 180°C.
Ingredients for the almond cake:
-90g almond powder
-1 pinch of salt
Separate eggwhites from yolks. Add salt to eggwhites and beat. In a separate bowl, mix together eggyolks and sugar. Add flour and almond powder. Then add eggwhites by gently stiring. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes at 170°C.
Let cakes cool down, in the meantime, prepare an icing butter( we’ll use it to “glue” the cakes together)
Ingredients for the icing butter:
-100g of icing sugar
-40g of unsalted butter
-1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder
-1 and 1/2 teaspoon milk
Mix all the ingredients together. Keep in mind that it can dry quite fast, so stir it a few times, when waiting for cakes to cool down.
Now, both cakes are ready. Cut each in two parts, horizontally. Put aside the top of the chocolate cake and the bottom of the almond cake.
Cut in 6 parts the two other half-cakes.
Place on a plate the bottom of the almond cake. Apply a layer of icing butter. On top, place 3 chocolate parts and 3 almond parts alternating them. Apply another layer of icing butter. Place the remaining parts, using the same technique, but on one chocolate part, place an almond one. It’s like making a checkboard. 🙂 Then, before placing the chocolate top, apply another layer of icing butter.
Finally, apply all the remaining icing butter all around the cake.
That’s all for today’s recipes. I hope you enjoyed them. I f you redo one of them, let me know.
Thank you for passing by and reading this post. 🙂
I’ll see you soon in a next post 🙂
Take care of yourself ❤
