Throwback Tuesday

Not far ago this year I got this beautiful greeting card from a BFF. Quite unexpectedly and surprisingly. Well, it’s not just a card I would say. Even if the gift it was attached to, a nice white and brown colored handbag with a red woolen pompom I couldn’t help but have been wearing and showing around since then (chuckles), is handsome on its own.

I must say that I didn’t expect any present this year. May be because I slowly feel the weight of time lowering deeper and deeper on my shoulders and I realize that biggest joy and fulfillment are to be found in small things. Some call it wisdom (more chuckles).

But back to our topic. The card is made out of light wood. It appeals to my nature side by its simplistic rawness. Its perfume brings me back to my teenage-hood where I used to explore woods, smell at trees and fallen broken branches. At times I found myself pushing the experiment to some extend… Have you ever tasted wood? Not like a child but with the consciousness of an adult. Well, I did. This greeting card brought me back to the time I was spontaneous and open for adventures, not caring much about how it looked like to other people or about the consequences. That is consciousness of responsibilities some will say again (smirk). Nowadays, consciousness goes together with caution and deep thoughtfulness. Added to it the busyness of our daily routines, there is not much left to oneself.

So letting things go through my mind is like allowing myself to recall who I really am and where I really want to be. Not-so-off-topic and then, knowing or been remembered that I am fabulous to somebody I surely cherish is kind of a great feeling and grants me another glance at the essence of life: That smooth but solid anchor in the middle of a swirl.

Brochettes de poulet aux Ă©pices des CaraĂŻbes

Bonjour chers tous,

Nous dĂ©marrons l’annĂ©e sur de nouvelles saveurs et avec un nouvel appĂ©tit 😋. Pour commencer, j’aimerais vous proposer une recette assez rĂ©cente que j’ai trouvĂ©e pas mal. Il s’agit de quelques dĂ©licieuses brochettes de poulet assaisonnĂ©es avec amour 😊.

En principe, les quantitĂ©s peuvent nourrir entre 4 et 6 personnes. Cela dĂ©pendra surtout de la grosseur de vos sticks de brochettes et/ou de la quantitĂ© de lĂ©gumes que vous prĂ©fĂ©rerez. En ce qui me concerne, les lĂ©gumes ont la premiĂšre place dans la plupart de mes repas 😉.

Alors, pour 4-6 personnes, vous aurez besoin de :

  • 600g de blanc de poulet
  • 30 ml de crĂšme de noix de coco
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 gros poivron
  • 1 grosse tomate
  • 1 gros oignon
  • Ail
  • Gingembre
  • 2 tranches d’ananas
  • 2 cs de jus d’ananas ou d’orange
  • Un peu d’huile
  • Coriandre
  • Thym
  • Cumin
  • Curry
  • Moutarde
  • Miel
  • Poivre multicolore
  • Sel
  • Cube

DĂ©couper le poulet, les lĂ©gumes et l’ananas en dĂ©s et mettre de cĂŽtĂ©. Écraser toutes les Ă©pices, y ajouter le jus d’ananas, le miel et la moutarde, puis assaisonner. MĂ©langer l’assaisonnement, le poulet, les lĂ©gumes et l’ananas, puis laisser mariner au frais pendant au moins 30 minutes. Enficher le tout sur des sticks et faire cuire au barbecue ou Ă  la poĂȘle. Servir chaud avec du riz blanc ou risotto. Bon appĂ©tit !!! 😋

C’est lundi!

Bonjour et agréable début de semaine mes followers :-). On y va avec un regard neuf, une énergie et une motivation nouvelles, et une foi à déplacer des montagnes.

Rock it with a positive attitude 👌 !
