LAMB MOUSSAKA | Served with a green sallad, cherry tomatoes and fresh honey yoghurt

So once again, I have a brand new bag. I’ve been trying another Matkasse, this time we get the goods from Middagsfrid.

www.middagsfrid.se

Currently you can even get a 300kr discount on your first Matkasse.
Introduction offer: 300kr discount

But this is not just another Matkasse. I can easily say this is by far the best quality I’ve had out of all Matkasse services that I tried so far. But then of course, this is reflected in the bill. 895kr for 5 dinners serving a family of 4, i.e. 45kr per serving. Not realy a budget alternative, but it comes loaded with fantastic groceries and 1st class meat, fish and poultry, squeaking freash.

So despite the pricey service, this is a no brainer. I say Middagsfrid has no competition in this price range and I’m happy to pay for the quality they deliver.

I predict I’ll keep this Matkasse service for quite a while.

Enjoy :-)

PASTA ROLLS AND LAMB SKEWERS SERVED WITH A MOZZARELLA SALLAD | This is some seriously good shit

20120701-220230.jpg

Fresh pasta rolls prepared with spinage and ricotta filling. Pour a little cream in a baking dish and put in the pasta roles. Spread some fresh creme spiced with roasted garlic and thyme on the pasta roll slices. Add a dash of butter on each slice and top them off with fresh ground pepper.

Minced lamb was spiced with fresh herbes and shaped up as skewers on a stick.

Pasta roll slices and Lamb skewers were baked in the oven at 180C (350F) for approximately 15 minutes until they looked amazing.

Serve it up with a ruccola sallad with tomatoes, cucumber and mozzarella.

This is all fine, but add a nice rosé wine and you’ll get some seriously good shit. I settled for a bottle of Boschendal 2011, fantastic!

Enjoy =)

FLYING ASPARAGUS | A slightly more grownup Jacob

20120428-210144.jpg

Flying Jacob (Swedish: Flygande Jacob) is a Swedish casserole based on chicken with bananas, peanuts and bacon, covered with whipped cream laced with hot sauce and cooked in the oven.

In checking the supplies I realised there were no bananas…

No bananas?
NO BANANAS?!?
So asparagus it was, and a bloody fantastic concoction it is, if I may say so.

And as per usual in preparing Flying Jacob, never go lightly with the hot sauce.

DRY & BRITTLE | Still not friends with wheat and soy

20120316-014030.jpg

15 Euro per kilo for a dry and brittle veggie sausage.

How can processed vegetables become soo expensive. Soy and wheat at two-three times the price of meat products.

And why are these alternative non-meat products still soo dry and brittle. Delicious and mouthwatering, nope.

There must be a way to prepare great tasting non-meat products at reasonable prices.

How else could you ever expect the large masses to buy these products on a regular basis.
