:: GIRLS NIGHT + RECIPES ::

January 06, 2013

Since few years now, me & my girls have a tradition of making a "Christmas dinner". The concept is simple -  we have gifts (we draw cards with names), spend some quality time together, eat something & drink mulled wine. Usually we cooked - one meal each girl, but it was too much, so this year we went for the "healthy snacks" and the party was at my place so I was the "big chef". :) 
The sauces were a big hit, since all the girls already called me for the recipe. ;) 

Že nekaj let imamo s puncami tradicijo, da se za božične praznike dobimo in skupaj praznujemo. Potrebno je narediti žreb (da vemo kako poteka obdarovanje), določiti jedilnik in izbrati prostor. :) Dve leti nazaj je vsaka bila zadolžena za nekaj (predjed/glavno jed/sladico/solato), lani smo si naročile tajsko hrano, letos pa smo se odločile samo za prigrizke. Zabava se je odvijala pri nama, tako, da sem se lahko poigrala z omakicami+prigrizki in mislim, da je uspelo kar dobro. Omakice so bile pravi hit, ker so me že vse prosile za recepte. ;) 

So I`ll share my kitchen secrets with you guys as well. On the first photo there are dates filled with blue cheese. I`m not a big fan of dates because they are really sweet, but with the cheese, the taste is perfect. 

Odločila sem se, da svoje kuhinjske skrivnosti delim tudi z vami. Na prvi fotki so dateljni polnjeni s plesnivim sirom (žal ne vem, katero znamko sem kupila). Sami dateljni so mi sicer presladki, v kombinaciji s sirom so pa odlični (recept je pa prispevala moja tasca). :) 


1. Dates filled with blue cheese.
1. Dateljni polnjeni s plesnivim sirom.
2. Nothing special, just some Macadamia nuts. 
2. Nič posebnega, kupljeni Macadamia oreščki.
3. Carrots (you need a lot of that, cuz people are like bunnies when they start to eat it)
3. Korenje (velike količine, ker ljudje so kot zajčki, ful hitro ga zmanjka) :)
4. Hummus - the recipe that I used is here and it`s the best one from what I tried out (the recipe is in slovene, so please use translator if you don`t understand)
4. Hummus - recept sem našla na kulinariki in je najboljši od vseh kar sem jih do sedaj preizkusila. Vsekakor upoštevajte, da je notri tahini, ker naredi prav poseben okus.
5. White sauce - that`s our very popular (not so secret anymore) sauce , for which you will need: 1 sour cream, 2tbs mayo, 1tbs dion mustard, olive oil, few choped olives and spices (origano, basil, pepper, salt)
5. Bela omaka - to je najina omakica, ki je zelo popularna (in nič več skrivnostna). za katero potrebujete: 1 kislo smetano, 2 žlički majoneze, 1 žličko dion gorčice, olivno olje, nekaj na drobno narezanih oliv in začimbe (origano, bazilika, poper, sol in malce rdeče paprike)
6. Cashews - put them on a hot pan for a minute untill they get some color, than just put some ground red pepper on them. Delicious! 
6. Indijski oreščki - na vroči ponvi jih malce popražite (brez olja), nato pa jih začinite z mleto rdečo papriko
7. Mixed dried fruit  (did not make that) and
7. Mešano suho sadje (kupljeno) in
8. Pretzels ( did not make that either) :)
8. Prestice (tudi niso domače) :) 

My friends Urška & Iva sharing happines. :D

  2. Mega!!! Ideja! In pogostitev!
    Indijske oreščke še nikoli nisem pražila, a si me prepričala!
    Datelji?! Hja,zveni zanimivo...
    Če imaš rada suhe slive, poskusi ob priliki v razkoščičene vstavit orehovo jedrce (mandelj...) ali košček fine grenke čokolade. Meni je njami. Za lepši izgled lahko posuješ s sladkorjem v prahu:)
