It's so nice that we are cooking together :)

In this year we have had 3 common cooking evenings already. Great company, lots of fun and lots of tasty food.
Year we started with traditional Polish dumplings or "pirogi" filled with cottage cheese + mashed potatoes and cottage cheese + spinach. Ewa and Daga were our "teachers" in dumpling making and it was a great examination of our finger agility. So afterwards we even could make a competition of most beautiful dumpling :)

Result was really tasty!

Next chef was our couch-surfer Ibo from Turkey. He already surprised us once with really delicious chicken meal but for the Cooking Club he prepared "tolmas" - different vegetables filled with meat and rice. So at the end we had filled tomatoes, filled cabbage, filled egg-plants, filled sweet peppers and even filled potatoes (this was an experiment but quite successful)! Result was really healthy and really good!
Ibo in the process :)

But yesterday we made something from French cuisine - quiche Lorraine - a pie made with pastry, eggs, milk, ham and lots of cheese inside and later baked in the oven. Amazing smell and amazing taste! Just too less eaters!

Next week be prepared for lasagne!

P.S. So this is an approval to our families that we are not suffering from hunger at least once a week :)

Valentines day

As a real "fans" of all lovers day we created our own special activity - Secret Valentine game - who will give the most disgusting present. We made a lottery to find out who gonna surprize who and all day long we had time to prepare our special surprise. We can just wonder about our own creativity and sense of humor. Gifts were as diverse as we - starting from super sweet and sugar-pink greeting cards (which one guy gives to the other) and very masculine shape balloons and ending with half eaten churchellas, copies of body parts and dead fishes (I guess, if there would be prizes, this one could hit the Grand Prix). :)

P.S. By the way, since yesterday we are working in our new office!

Feeling like movie stars

On 4th of February we had our houswarming party in new apartment. To have more fun, all of us for that night dressed up like some famous actor, popstar or interesting movie carracter. But as allways, pictures can say much more than words, so here you go:
