.: Fallin’

Nor a romantic neither a new recipe, but a good one. Chickpeas polpette or egg-falafel

200 gr chickpeas – ceci
onion (shallot) – cipolla (scalogno)
parsley – prezzemolo
cumin – cumino
coriander – coriandolo
nutmeg – noce moscata
1 egg – 1 uovo
breadcrumb – pangrattato
salt – sale

Chop the onion and add the spices – tritate lo scalogno e aggiungete le spezie. Chop the (precooked) chickpeas, then mix all the ingredients (some breadcrumb too)* Tritate i ceci (precotti), poi mescolate tutto (un po’ di pane va anche dentro il misto)

Make some balls and roll them in the breadcrumb * fate delle polpettine e impanatele nel pane.

Fry carefully, for they burn very quickly * Friggete con cautela perché bruciano molto velocemente.

They’ll be falling away very quickly 🙂 espcially if you serve them with batbout bread and eat them with your fingers

I keep on fallin’
In and out of love
With you
Sometimes I love ya
Sometimes you make me blue
Sometimes I feel good
At times I feel used
Lovin’ you darlin’
Makes me so confused…

.: (Things gonna be) alright

Are things alright ? Can you really say so in any specific moment of your life ? Sometimes I feel things are never alright… or maybe things are always fine but we just can’t see it.

I still can’t cook falafel perfectly… but I think they are… just fine !

my recipe is this:

200 gr chickpeas – ceci
onion (shallot) – cipolla (scalogno)
parsley – prezzemolo
cumin – cumino
coriander – coriandolo
nutmeg – noce moscata
1 egg – 1 uovo
breadcrumb – pangrattato

I add an egg to make them easier. Chop the onion and add the spices –  tritate lo scalogno e aggiungete le spezie.

Chop the (precooked) chickpeas, then mix all the ingredients (some breadcrumb too), make some balls and roll them in the breadcrumb * Tritate i ceci (precotti), poi mescolate tutto (un po’ di pane va anche dentro il misto), fate delle polpettine e impanatele nel pane. Fry carefully, for they burn very quickly * Friggete con cautela perché bruciano molto velocemente.

Se volete potete aggiungere un po’ di parmigiano, oppure più spezie… a seconda dei gusti. Anyway they’re gonna be alright

.: My life is going on

Here is my polpette again. Things go on. Sometimes they look the same, sometimes they look like changing… who knows what’s really happening ?

you think you are mixing always the same ingredients, the same way… but things turn out different.

Look….these are from another cooking day

I was more careful with fire and they turned out paler

Food is a metaphor for life…. going on.

.: Bad things

We love bad things. That’s the truth. But what really are “bad things” ? Some things can really do us harm, but mostly, tasty food is not bad if you only have it once in a while. I don’t like fast food, but hamburgers, in their originally idea of just meatballs, are not so bad. So, if you don’t add too many other fatty things, you can enjoy them and not feel guilty.

So I decided to make some larger meatballs with some cheese… are they hamburger ? hum no. Hamburgers’ cousins ? Maybe …LOL

Anyway I think you’ll like them.

They’re just like my usual polpette, but with a larger slice of cheese, anche that’s it.

oops.. need a better picture to show the cheese inside

I wanna do bad things with you 😀

.: All good

Some days you start good, go on good and end good. First, a nice breakfast with my lovely biscuits…

Then tagliatelle al ragù…

Third: you start to cook some bread

and you will have it with some simple and nice polpette

this is my bread

and in the end… you add ice cream to some beautiful strawberries

isn’t it all good ?
