I have for you tip for lovely chicken nuggets. It was easier than I thought to make them and to be honest, they are a real treat! I baked them in oven, so no frying at all. Cut chicken breast into several pieces. Take three plates and put flour in first one, whisked eggs in second and golden breadcrumbs in third. You can add salt and pepper into the eggs. And then just simply take piece of meat, cover it in flour, then egg and at the end in breadcrumbs. Preheat your oven to 180 C. If you have baking paper, put it in a baking tray and lay all meat in. Leave it in the oven for 30 minutes or untill it is golden. After 15minutes turn it around.
Serve with some fresh salad or tomato sauce :)
I have spent last few days in Edinburgh and I would like to tell you or give you some tips for good food. It is only my personal opinion and experience what I liked and ate.
On the first night, we were just walking in very nice historic centre and started to feel hungry. We saw small pub called The Ensign Ewart Pub, we looked at the menu outside and decided to go in. Probably one of their best specialities is Scottish Venison Casserole which was venison meat cooked with vegetable and topped with mash potatoes with cheese. It was all baked together, so cheese started to melt and it was amazing. Portion had reasonable size and it was served nicely.
On the second night we were just browsing local pubs and restaurants in the part of town called Leith. We saw little Cafe Domenico and it looked very cozy from outside. Interior of restaurant was full of little lights (like during the Xmass), small tables and pleasant atmoshpere. Their menu was quite short, but everything sounded so delicious. We ordered two plates of pasta - brocoli and mushroom penne in creamy basil pesto sauce and ravioli filled with ricotta in creamy tomato sauce with shrimps. Guys this was the best pasta I have ever had. Big portion, nice looking food, tasty and ingredients played together well. Really amazing, you have to go there.
Weather on the last day was quite freezing with wind, so we ended up in placed called Newsroom. We have been walking around this place everyday and I really wanted to go in, but it was still busy. This time we were lucky, table near the window with very stylish lamps was free. They have long drinks menu, we tried some of them and I have to say, that cocktails in Newsroom are really nice with reasonable price. When you are drinking, you want something for snacking, some sharing plates. We oredred nachos with sweet chilli chicken and of course guacamole, sour cream and tomato salsa. Such a big portion! And I loved those nachos! It went well with cocktails :)
it is windy and rainy this weekend in UK, so I wanted to do some nice soup which would warm us up and would be delicious at the same time. I did homemade beef soup, which is typical for Sunday lunch in Slovakia. I did it for the first time and I was suprised how easy it is! I put in big pot some beef meat (the most important is to use any meat with bones) and pour about 2 litres of water. After 30 minutes I added root vegetable (carrots, parsnip and swede| and onion. Seasoned it with pepper and vegetable stock seasoning. At this stage you just leave soup to simmer at low heat for about 2 hours or until meat is very soft. At the end, I took out meat and vegetable and strain the stock. Serve with fresh parsley.
