Cottage Cheese and Chicken Fritters. Kana- ja kodujuustukotletid

kana kodujuustu 1(6)Interesting fact: In Estonia, cottage cheese began to be produced in order to meet the cheese production plan set by Moscow to the USSR. The National Planning Committee of the USSR almost doubled the cheese production of the Estonian SSR for the five-year plan, So, this is a reason why Estonia began to produce cottage cheese which was reported as cheese in the reports 🙂

This is a very delicious and proteinuria combination for dinner.

Chicken with Mustard and Pears. Kana pirni ja sinepiga

kanapirniga1 (3)Estonians usually season their dishes with pepper and salt ( You have probably noticed this by now, I believe). Yes, we do have different edible plants that most of us know. But due to our climate we can only use ’’indoor cultivated plants’’ from October to May. However, there is this one ingredient that is able to take away some foreigner’s breath – our strong mustard. Forget about Dijon and sweet mild Finnish and Swedish mustards. Estonian mustard is hot. As this brown dish doesn’t look quite appealing serve it with some green peas or beans.

Next to my home is beautiful park. And flower beds.
Beautiful, but full of weeds.

I am walking and thinking.  Should I do a little weeding? This is not difficult and each physical movement is a good movement 🙂 When I am walking back, I will…

I am walking back and…. I see, that one women already weeding!
Waw! I am only thinking but some people are acting.  Shame to me.

I am getting closer and.. I see. Woman is not weeding. She is picking flowers… 🙂 🙂

So. Please do not pick flowers from public flower beds.

Better go to the forest and pick up the mushrooms  🙂
