Pasta with Spinach and Shrimp

19 Nov

After a hard day of work this dish is just heaven. A variety of pasta, garlic, red onions, pepper, spinach and shrimp. Shortly stir fried in a pan. Simple, easy and quick, but also very tasty.


Cheezy Pizza Flavor Crisps

12 Nov

It is kind of a funny thing. This post marks the beginning of a whole lot of other posts that will feature food that I ate this summer whilst traveling through Indonesia, and it is a post based on some strange flavored crisps and beer. Not really representing the fine cuisine of Indonesia, but it has a tale nonetheless. After arriving in Jakarta after a flight from Amsterdam, my girlfriend and I took a Blue Bird cab to our accommodation. Not that hungry, and quite tired, we ventured to a nearby 7-Eleven store and settled for a Bintang beer and something to snack: “Cheezy Pizza Flavor” crisps. At least it was a flavor that isn’t available in The Netherlands, but also not one that I am really eager to introduce here, if I remember correctly. Still, as a tired traveler settling with something to snack, a Bintang in my hand and the prospect of all the great food ahead, I went satisfied to bed…..and woke up after just two hours jet lagged like I have seldom been before.

Brown Bread with an Omelet and Smoked Dutch Bacon

8 Nov

When I eat a thick piece of brown bread like the one above, I want to have enough toppings on it so I can really taste the toppings instead of only bread. Instead of a thin slice of ham or salami, I want slices of crispy smoked Dutch bacon, topped with a large omelet which give you a rich and filling lunch just when you need it.
