pleasures of life












or should i say: "gonne fishin'" :D
This post is about the pleasure of living. I think one requirement for a pleasant life is fulfilling your hobbies. Photography is a hobby. Cooking is another pleasure of mine. It calms me & makes me feel good – when the result is tasty, of course :D. One might say : “you’re surely gone fishin’ ” – stayin’ in the kitchen on this hot weather… i never said i wasn't, anyway :P
Like photography it requires a good composition & a lot of love in doing it. Here’s the result of 2 hobbies put together: “pastrav cu smantana si hagima” {Trout with cream & hagima}



It’s very simple: take the trout & porcini mushrooms (Boletus edulis - we call this mushrooms "hribi"); Fry the fish a little bit on both sides & than add the mushrooms.



Then add the cream & after about 2 minutes add the one and the only one that here runs by the name of "hagima". Hagima (something like allium ascalonicum) is a kind of baby wild onion, something in between garlic & onion... hope you'll not use somthi' else & say i wanted you poisened :D



Let it all bubble for about 5 minutes & that’s all… almost, i guess...
well, servin' some wine will be just fine along with the fish.



Just remember: pastrav, hribi, cream, hagima, salt & pepper, two glass of wine & some love. As i said, it's all about the pleasure of living.
Bonne appetite!

maybe Vali can recommend a wine for the trout :)
