Catalan Pork Shank

Posted on Updated on

 

What you see is what you get..

Or your eyes are bigger than your belly..
Looking into pork shank cook with garlic, bay leaf, tomatoes, paprika ..
Looking into squid cook with parsley and garlic butter
Russian salads..
Bread ..
Mixed olives…
Cheese and ham croquettes
Hahahaha.. I just laugh coz everything look really nice..
Wise spending.. With two bottles of Cava..
Excuse me.. Am I drunk.. Because my nose is red as red as Rudolf..
But.. It’s only Pork shank… That stay in my mind.. So.. Forget squid.. Forget salad..
Hic. Hic.. Yeah.. With rich croquettes.. So rich.. So you can lick my finger..
But forget squid… Because.. Did I bite Good Year? Hahaha..
On my balcony.. Listening to the blues..
Rock cafe..

Barcelona, still.. I am in love with your Pork shank..

Ps: I still need to seduce the chef to get the Pork shank recipe 🙂 🙂 let you know soon..

Say No to Dog Meat!!

Posted on Updated on

Dear my lovely friends..

I wrote this letter is only reminder…
I know it wasn’t my responsibility to ask you or to let you know..
I was walking down the street in Villanova … Yesterday..
And I saw white with spot brown dog.. Stray.. Maybe..
Remind me .. Me Mollie..
Me Dog.. When I was a boy.. ( I am a man now)
She always look after the house when we away..
Sleep under me Dad “Jimny jangkrik”*
Bark to a strangers..
I was 7 at the time..
She didn’t eat meat… Rice and ” lodeh” was her favourite (thinking she must be vegetarian dog)
One early morning everyone talk about mollie.. Because she was gone..
Me Mom said.. Some one must be “bedog” her..
(bedog in Javanese it mean pinch, killed, for food)
My Dear friends.. We are not that poor
We are not that desperate for food ..
So.. Why do you still eat dog meat??
Is that part of our culture..really????
Dear friends.. My letter is just questioning about our appreciation of food..
Don’t you think sometime you just being greedy..
Just because you think it’s nice so you can eat what ever you want.. Include me mollie
Dear friends..
I don’t want digging more about how to killed the dog.. To satisfied your palates!!
Dear friends ..
I should introduce you with my Amy Gray..
She even know when I am feeling blue..

So.. I just want you think ..
( I bet you said.. “who the f***are you?? )
And my answer..
( it’s me Bobby.. Your old friend.. So.. Stop eating me f**** g Dog!!!!)

Bleeding of love.. (Of my frozen yoghurt)

Posted on

Bleeding of love.. Of my frozen yoghurt

When the sand gets warm even gets hot..
Bare foot I walk down the beach
Sad coz the chapel was closed
Did you ever go inside .. The Irish lady asked.. And she said.. Beautiful 
and my eyes just staring of the candles of OUR LADY Chappell 
Inside. I cry.. 
Walk down to the beach with my bare feet.. 
Is that Wind?… Or the angel blow His nostril? ..
Berries.. On top of mine.. And Caramel on top of yours
Bleeding of love.. 
No.. Or maybe..
But as long as I know.. My frozen yoghurt bleeds with berry compote..
And yours? You said .. You had enough with my sweet caramel?
 Can I have it .. So you can have my bleeding yoghurt.. 
Something that I learned today.. How sweet when I saw they were holding hands
Berries and caramel never been together 
But when you saw them holding hands.. 
As a frozen yoghurt in a sunny day..

675g Greek yoghurt
150g caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Berry compote

1. Mix together the yoghurt, sugar and vanilla. Refrigerate the yoghurt mixture for 45 minutes.
2. Pour the yoghurt mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions
3 Serve with berry compote
