Eat, sweat, love

I know I haven’t posted much this week so let’s look up what I have to tell you.

Hannibal had his birthday party! Officially I chose 24.7 as his birthday (it’s Punic Hannibal’s Birth year 247.) but due to his bad condition we decided to make him a birthday week…

And here is a nice shot from the party:


Oh and there is also some new food pics (not from Hannibal’s meal, he got tuna and chicken)


Here you can see Coconut Chicken right out of the crockpot!!!

What you need for this? Not much:

1 chicken cut in pieces (yes, mine had three legs..)

2 onions

4 bell peppers

spring onions

1 can coconut milk

fresh cilantro

Rub the chicken with following seasoning:

1 tsb powdered garlic

1/2 tsp chili

1/2 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp turmeric

Brown the chicken in a large skillet, remove it and place it in the slow cooker. Now brown the onions and bell peppers, add them to the chicken.

Fill the slow cooker with a can of coconut milk and cilantro.

Cook on low for about 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

Season with salt and serve with tortillas or rice…


And this one is Caribbean Shrimp cocktail with fried bananas and bakes.

Caribbean Shrimp cocktail:

Heat oil in a pan, add colombo and stir, put in the shrimps and let them brown, cool

Chop all ingredients and mix everything together, use you hand and get dirty for this one!!

1 tsp salt or maybe more…just try it

Mix and pour over salad, mix again and put it in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.

500 g flour

200 ml warm water

1 Tbsp dry yeast

1/2 Tbsp baking soda

1 Tbsp butter

1/2 Tbsp coconut oil

3/4 tsp salt

Solve yeast and baking soda in water, mix all ingredients and let it rise on a warm place for about 3 hours.

Divide into small balls, flatten them and brown them in a pan or on the grill (should be very hot) on both sides…

Enjoy!!! Recipes perfect for this hot summer!!!
