Veal Escalopes,Croquettes and Coleslaw.


Hello everybody.

Lunch today was semi ready, brought ready made veal escalopes and potato croquettes from my favorite grocery store in Amman, Centro Stores. Salad was two coleslaw bowls one with raisins the other without for the boys.

By the way all butchery goods at Centro are delicious, most important thing is the friendly professional staff who cares about every detail.

Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breasts.

Hello everybody.

Friday lunch is always a last minute decision, I still have some potato pie from yesterday so needed something to go with it.

Finally after negotiations with the boys I took out some chicken breasts and added a crust on each one then sautéed in a bit of olive oil.

Crust was a mix of garlic, pesto, oregano, salt and pepper spread all over then topped with parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.

That’s it, quick and easy.







Veal Broccoli Stir Fry.

Typical Friday Lunch.


Hello everybody.

Big fully loaded burgers are our typical Friday lunch whenever we’re all home.

Today with eggs, cheese and all toppings,tried these tiny breaded fried potato balls also, nice looking for a change.

A must with these burgers Mirinda,cold with lots of ice.

Fettuccine in Rosa Sauce.

wpid-wp-1441895219559.jpg    Hello again.

You may wandered what did I do with all these cherry tomatoes in the oven, well they were very ripe and tender so this what you do…

I baked the whole tomatoes with one chili pepper, sweet yellow pepper, garlic,rosemary, oregano,salt and olive oil alongside the cake till all tender and a thick sauce is out. I then mixed all together in the blender.

Used this sauce with some fresh mushrooms,pesto and fresh cooking cream as sauce for fettuccine.
Sprinkle with Parmesan and oregano when served.

Easy simple end of the week lunch.

Veal Escalope And Veggies.

Hello everybody.

Have you noticed that restaurants these days are becoming increasingly expensive?

Well after a simple overrated lunch last Friday in Jerash I decided to compensate this week, since it’s only me and hubby are home for lunch I did these two lovely restaurant style dishes.Delicious,clean, elegant and with minimum cost.

Veal escalopes,baked potatoes with sour cream, grilled peppers and broccoli with lemon garlic sauce and a dish of baba ghanouj for each.

Enjoy your weekend lovely people.
