I'll be the fly in your soup

Seriously, I am no good at cooking. Like not at all. Even my pasta is crap. It's not like i never try cooking, i regularly do - it just never turns out great. Except my cheese leek soup with minced meat! Even others like it :P Never thought i'd post a recipe here but then again...never say never. So here we go.

You need:
1 1/2 l water
3 tbsp oil
700 g mincemeat
Pepper and salt
200 g soft cheese
3 little packages of vegetable stock
1 pack of whipped cream
3-6 stalks leek
And some spices, as you like ( i prefer ginger and nutmeg )

1st step: Heat the oil and add the mincemeat until brown. Slice the leek in rings, add to the meat, and p our in the broth. Bring to the boil and simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes. Don't forget to add some pepper and salt to the meat.

2nd step: Boil water (including the vegetable stock!) for 10 minutes on low temperature. Then add the cheese and let it melt. As soon as melt, add the whipped cream and, the meat and leeks, and the spices. Taste every now and then until its perfect for you. If the soup is not thick enough, add some roux.

If any of you should ever try this, please let me know. :)

The one thing i was mostly looking forward to during my holidays was the trip to Alsace, which is a very eastern region of France. We went to Strasbourg for just one day but it was amazing and I don't really know where my love for France ,the french language, culture and music is coming from but being in the country i love so much ( and I've only seen it once before when driving through France to get to Spain ) meant alot to me. People were incredibly friendly, the sights beautiful and the food amazing ;) And yes, we've had a whooole lot of wine to carry home. I was in the back of the bus basically surrounded by 20 packages of wine :)

When they said yes.

I can now say that I've got a sister-in-law.
Weeks of stress for all of us are now over but all the stress was worth it. The marriage of my brother and his girlfriend (who looked beautiful!)was amazing. The location was beautiful too, it took place on a castle set on a lake, so there was also time for a rowboat trip. We've had it all: a beautiful ceremony, nice music (i learned how to dance to Rock n Roll!), firework, games and lots of good laughs. Truly a night to remember. I wish both of them best of luck for their future! And pics pics! (as lovely as my purple dress looks, it is truly the most uncomfortable thing i have ever worn...!!)

Between work, wedding and vacations

There is a reason why i could barely post anything recently. My dear brother is getting married! It will be the first wedding i ever attented and i am super excited and happy for him! However, the marriage means a l o t of stress for the family and me. It all started yesterday with the "eve of wedding party" (wedding itself is tomorrow). In Germany it is a tradition to throw and break old porcellaine dishes in front of the house. It is said this banishes evil spirits and brings luck to the couple. The more porcellaine, the better.
Now after tidying everything up, i will take my time for the last wedding preparations and to pack my bag for my vacations (starting saturday). I will be off to Palatinate (very west Germany) / Alsace (very east France ;)) for a couple of days. We will stay at a vineyard for the yearly wine festival. Let's just hope i won't be spending ALL the time there being all tipsy ;)
