When you are very busy and you still should find time to make something to eat.

When it’s hard to figure, what to make for food just today.

When your budget is tight.

When you’re not in a mood to stand beside the stove, not even 30 minutes.

When you’re so hungry you can’t wait too long for food.

Then make this kind of chicken sauce – ready in the same time as the rice is cooked. Continue reading “Yellow chicken sauce”

The differences between various sauces is usually very slight, but it can still be quite remarkable. Just adding or changing  one or two ingredients means a lot for the final result.

Instead of chicken rolls, we decided to do turkey rolls for a change. Thin turkey cutlets are noticeably bigger than their chicken cousins, so the rolls are easier to make, not to mention that I find turkey meat a bit tastier than chicken.

When you send the man of the house to do some shopping on his own without any special requests, just a friendly take whatever you feel like, you can be sure that there will be smooth pork sausages, a sausage bent on a form of oval, minced meat and chicken breasts, in his basket.
