Something real yummy this weekend?

Todays post in English

Me a gourmet chef????


Cooking dinner has always been a necessary evil for me….

Yes, I do realized that with my former post about boikotting ironing and not being any good at needlework I seem to be an awful wife material… BUT luckily I already have a boyfriend that loves me with all my short comings…

And thats not all! HE actually loves cooking and is very interested in food…

He watches every food program and his favorites are:  Masterchef USA, Masterchef, England, Masterchef Australia, Masterchef New Sealand….

Incredible boring programs if you ask me…. but there are som benefits 🙂

He cooks practically all our dinners!


Yes! I know I am very lucky 🙂 🙂 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤

«I love cooking dinner together» he says in the weekends.

And I totally agree – because when we «make dinner together». He is cooking and I am on a chair, enjoying the view of my gorgeous man, drinking my wine ❤



With my boyfriends permission, I am sharing one of his recipes today. This is one of my favorites and it is for 2 persons. ( you may multiply for more people

Tom Yum suppe ala Jan Andreas ❤


5 Kaffir lime leafs

5 slices of galangal root

2 lemon gras cut in three 3



1-2 tea spoons of  Tom Yum paste (depends on how spicy you like it)

1-2 tea spoons of chilli paste (depends on how spicy you like it)

couple of drops of fish-sause ( a lot of taste so dont use to much!)

1-2 chicken bouillon

1 carrot in slices

1 onion cut in medium bits

optionally cherry tomatoes

2 cans of coconut milk

20170623_075936 we use the light version

Chicken already fried in a pan, or Scampi or fish – whatever you like.

This is how you do

  • boil 1 1/2 cup of water with the kaffir lime leafs, galangal root, lemongrass, carrot, onion and chicken bouillon  – make sure all the bouillon has been dissolved.
  • Add the tom yum paste and the chilli paste and cook it until it is all  mixed in.
  • Add the coconut milk and bring to a boil  – add a few drops of fish saus ( dont use to much, it is very strong on taste!)

At the end add chicken, scampi or fish as you like. Right before serving so it doesn’t get chewy 🙂

Taste marvelous with focaccia bread or garlic bread on the side.
