Poffertjes Party!!!

Well Study Projects have come and gone, and The party is always great, in the past we have done things like Icecream, nachos, Sushi. Well this time around it was time to go back to my dutch roots. Panckes and Poffertjes.
This is me cooking them on the stove.
Here are a few people enjoying their Poffertjes in the group

You all know that I'm a cook, but for this I did have to go and buy a mix. But I will say I have been on line and found some recipies, and I'll have a go at it my self.

These are some pro's making Poffertjes, I think this might be in The Netherlands.

A time to kill

Wow one of the best movies I have ever seen, besides 'spy game' and maybe a few others. I just wanted to recommend to every one if you have not seen 'A time to kill' (1996) for a while or if ever, check it out, borrow it form me.

Where do recipes come from?

Well I cooked lunch for some friends of mine today, and I had some cod in the freezer that I caught this summer, with a loaf of Ciabatta bread from the main hall and great Appy was made!

Slices of bread with some olive oil on top, into the broiler to toast. Then I took a roma tomato and slices on the bread. The cod was marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, and some white wine (my dad made that) for half an hour. Then I warped It with some proscuto (Italian ham) and steamed it for a minute to Finish cooking it. The Lemon juice seemed to cure it so I just wanted to heat the fish through.

Place the fish on top of the bread with the tomato, and a slice of parma regiano on top and broil for a minute, then its done!

Well what was the inspiration for it! I think it was the bread, or the fish, or maybe the ham and cheese that Charlie brought back from his last trip, I'm not sure, but these days I have not really been using recipe's at home, I have been letting the ingedients work, Its fun to open up the fridge and say what can I make. Oh where did I get the idea to let it just happen with out recipe's well his name is Michael Smith!

I love Food!!!

A Group of us went out to the cactus club while we were at missions fest, I thought I should show you all what I had.

pistachio crusted Halibut, on some green beans on mashed potatoes, with a Thai curry sauce... MMM...

For Dessert I had apple pie,

The wait was long to get in, but the food made up for it I thought. Free appys because they took so long to get us in. Good times!

Well the time finally came for the Albert Edward group to meet and look at pictures. I have had this dream for a long time that we would get together and check out all the great shots. We had a great photographer on our trip Phil. A. He took most of the pictures and they all turned out great. I wanted to show this one because I liked it the most, the group having fun with the mountain on the left in the back ground. We did climb it and we were all very tired at the end. Last night was good, to hang out. Its funny how when you go on a venture (bible school outing in the first month of school, every one goes on one such as hiking, surfing, bungy jumping, caving, sailing, and ocean kayaking) but when you go on a venture you get to know all of these people really well when you depend on them for the weekend, but then four months later you don't hang out as much any more. Groups of friends change during the year, not sure why but they do. Good times though, I'm loving the year, the students are great.
