.: Strange

Laura is an American singer of italian descent. Elisa is an Italian singer successfully singing English lyrics. Everybody loves to be strange… for being “strange” is the most ordinary, “normal” thing.

We are all strange
And It ain’t never never ever gonna change

Chicken is a versatile meat. You can cook it in many ways, some simpler and some “stranger”. I often cook it with just some tomato…

other times I add some ham and cheese

but tonight I tried something different. I can’t make a regular chicken curry (at least I never tried) and I didn’t have yogurt available. So I decided to make my own version, to end a long day with something new and tasty. Well.. I can tell you: mission accomplished.

What you need:

evo oil – olio evo
red onion (shallot) – scalogno
coriander – coriandolo
cumin – cumino
cinnamon – cannella
ginger – zenzero
milk – latte
Asiago cheese
and obviously chicken – pollo

Put some cumin, some curry, some cinnamon and coriander in some milk and lightly warm the mixture. Then put the chicken in the mixture for some time (from 10 to 30 minutes). Ho scaldato il latte con un po’ di cumino, coriandolo, curry e cannella.

being honest I added some nutmeg, a bit of pepper and salt.

In a pan you slightly warm the shallot in oil with  some ginger. Rosolate pochissimo lo scalogno con un po’ di zenzero.

e poi preparate il formaggio a tocchetti. Cut the cheese in little cubes.

Put the chicken in the pan on the onion and cook it a bit. In the end add the cheese cubes. Mettete il pollo nella padella e, quando è già cotto, aggiungete il formaggio per farlo fondere, alla fine.

Non so darvi le dosi delle spezie, ma ne ho messe poche perché era un esperimento. Being an experiment I used very little of each spice, but I don’t know the exact amount of each of them. Anyway I can tell the result is very good. I loved it.

Laura and Elisa really mirror the pleasure of this spiced “strange” chicken. Goodnight.

.: We will (On ira)

I need a lot of positive energy today. So coffee was not enough. Orange fresh-squeezed juice was not enough.

I need my marmalade-quinoa muffins

And also something more: a juice with pomegranate, blueberry, carrot and aloe. Oltre ai miei ultimi dolcetti con marmellata di prugne, oggi mi serve una riserva extra di energia e vitamine, quindi un bel succo di melograno, mirtillo, carota e aloe.

Oh qu’elle est belle notre chance
Aux milles couleurs de l’être humain
Mélangées de nos différences
A la croisée des destins
