Not a Liebster award post

Image

Yesterday I found out I was nominated for a Liebster award by the satirical, sarcastic and super funny author of The Playground. For the record, I’m not a fan of the “blog award” thing. I was excited when I got my first one, but then I realized it’s more of a spam than a Pulitzer. However, I made a deal with my award-giver and I’m just going to answer the questions. The temptation was great, the questions – hilarious.

1.) Have you seen Alexader Skarsgård in True Blood, and if not, why not?

I have and I’ve drooled a lot because of his abs.

2.) Would you rather fight 100 duck size horses or 1 horse size duck? What’s your first plan of defense?

I’d take the horse size duck. I’d lure it with corn to the nearest lake. Because it’s as big as a horse it will simply drown. And now I’m sad 😦

3.) The olympics are just around the corner…besides the inevitable riots that will take place, what event are you most looking forward to?

Drinking beer and eating fries while watching.

4.) Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

Sure, every third Friday of the month.

5.) If you could have one food only, for the rest of your life, and it wouldn’t be bad for you or have any ill repercussions whatsoever, what would it be?

Pizza. Always pizza. Forever pizza.

6.) What is your own personal favorite piece that you have posted that didn’t get nearly enough attention the first time around, that you would like to take this opportunity to plug?

I would have to go with “Christopher Reeve: The true Man of steel”. I out a lot of work in this tribute and I think his story is truly inspiring.

7.) If you were a desert island, what book would you be? (Yup, you read that right…just trying to mix up a standard question and get your creative juices flowing).

I would be one of the Phoenix islands and the Harry Potter series will order me (lame pun, I know).

8.) Have you ever played with a Ouija board? Think it worked?

No, I’ve always wanted, though. The closest I’ve got is summoning the Queen of hearts and my head is still intact, so I hope the Ouija is more reliable 😀

9.) What’s the oddest job you’ve ever had… You know the one that you did because you were young and needed the money?

I did interviews for a marketing company. It doesn’t sound very odd but I had to do very strange researches like “Do people need libraries”, “How much money rich people are willing to spend on cars” and “What time people spend speaking on the phone” and I had to speak with even wierder people.

10.) What Star Wars character are you and why?

R2D2- I’m small, cute and witty.

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on these great questions 🙂

Homemade pizza

I’ve been making pizza for quite some time and now is time to share my recipe. It’s very easy and doesn’t take too much time.

First I spread some oil at the bottom of a pan. Then I put some flour on the dough and roll it out till it takes up the whole pan. After that I smear it with tomato sauce, sprinkle some basil and put the turkey ham which you can replace with meat at your taste, or you can skip the meat altogether.

ImageIt goes to the preheated to 180C oven for 5-7 min so the dough can rise. Then I put some pesto, cheddar, mozzarella, grated parmesan and grated Bulgarian yellow cheese and return it to the oven for another 10-15 min.

ImageThe result is a crusty, yummy and rich homemade pizza.

  • 400gr dough
  • 2 tsp flour

Fun and Strange facts about food

I’m still sick and bored to death, so I was searching for some facts about food. It appears that some people eat to live, others live to enjoy the food. However, there is some interesting information that many people hardly know. I picked the 15 most shocking facts about foods and drinks.

1. The largest food item on a menu is roast camel. It’s stuffed with a sheep’s carcass, which is stuffed with chickens, which are stuffed with fish, which are stuffed with eggs. This feast is sometimes featured in Bedouin weddings.

Pizza balls

I love pizza, pasta and all things Italian and these pizza balls are no exception. They are quick and easy to make and taste great. So here is the recipe:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Coat a pan with olive oil. Let the dough rest outside the fridge for 20 minutes. Take a golf ball size piece of it then flatten it with your hand and place the wanted ingredients in the middle. You can experiment with the filling in order to get many different tastes. Seal it around the fillings and place in the dish seam side down. Repeat till you have no more dough or till you have reached the desired quantity (I made 12).  Coat each ball with olive oil then sprinkle basil, oregano, garlic, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese, to taste. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until the balls are golden brown.  Serve with pizza or marinara sauce. Bon apetit!

Ingredients:

  • pizza dough
  • Yellow, Feta and Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Bacon
  • Kalamata olives, halved
