Pasta With Frozen Peas and Carrots

One of my close friends gave me this recipe, I upgraded it a tad bit, as I did not have some ingredients on hand.

Ingredients

1/2 pack of Spaghetti (or any pasta you like)
1 Scallion, chopped
1 package of frozen carrot and peas mix (or any vegetables you like). Or replace with canned or fresh vegetables.
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup water
garlic powder to taste ( I used garlic salt)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese (I used flaked Parmesan cheese)

Directions


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add one tablespoon oil to water, so the pasta does not stick. Add pasta and cook according to instructions or until al dente. (Al dente means that you cook it one minute less, than required). 100g pasta on 1L of water is the best proportions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet or pan saute vegetable mix in olive oil until heated through or to your required tenderness. Add lemon juice, garlic salt or powder and water.
  3. Add chopped scallion and cook for 3 more minutes or until done. Do not overcook. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  4. Place strained spaghetti in plate and place the cooked vegetable mix on top. Or you can do it my way. I combined spaghetti and vegetables in the saucer. Placed in plate and sprinkled with flaked Parmesan Cheese.


Bon Appetit! 

ECODENTA Melon flavor enamel toothpaste with mineral calcium salts and fluoride 100 ml

I have tried a lot of different toothpastes. From the ones that costs 0.54 Euro to ones that costs more than 10 Euros per tube. But I like Ecodenta the most. It is made by our brothers Lithuanians and they make really great cosmetics and hygiene products.
I have used Ecodenta toothpastes in the past and this time we used melon flavoured one. And the price for such big tube is really good. This was 100ml, but most of toothpastes comes in 75ml tubes.
I do not recall in my memory when we started this tube, but I think it was more than one month back.

UNE Healthy Glow Enhancer *M13* 30ml

I did use this foundation very little, as I bought it online and the shade was way too dark for my skin colour. I did mix it with lighter one I had. This expired.
Although, it was too dark for my skin, I liked it. It cam be easy applied with beauty blender or with fingertips. A little drop covers large area.
This is perfect size for travelling.

Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream 30ml

This is the must-have product for your kids and yourself too in winter and autumn. Surprisingly, this is the only product that helped my kid when he had flea bites in our country home. He always had some allergic reaction on flea bites and this cream with some anti-allergies pills did the job really well. The pills was for itching and this cream we used to heal the skin, because occasionally the flea bites got watery and like blisters.
Luckily, he had not been bitten in like two years, and the cream expired as we used only in winter weather when it was below 0 C.
I am throwing this one out and will buy new one in Autumn.
I do like Bübchen Wind & Weather Cream for harsh weather conditions better, but it is not available in local stores any more.

  • Protects delicate skin from drying winds or cold, wet weather
  • Provides a natural protective layer without blocking the skin
  • Ideal for protecting lips
  • Ideal for sensitive skin
  • Contains natural essential oils

Potato Pancakes for Lunch

I had two deep freeze potato pancakes left in the freezer. I had an intention to cook them as breakfast, but I always forgot about them.
So, today I am having a day off work and decided to make a small pre-lunch for myself.
I baked cooked them on slightly greased grill pan for 5-6 minutes. Topped with sour cream and sprinkled with premade cooked onion.

I used these deep freeze pancakes.


Yo do not have to use deep freeze pancakes, you can make them yourself. You can grate your own potatoes, add egg, salt and pepper. Or you can buy already ready made potato pancake mix. Ingredients for ready made mixture are below.
