14 - Caesar salad & raspberry-coconut muffins

Tuesday, 22th of March - I was home alone (with Elvis of course) and decided to make Caesar salad for myself. Before the recipe some history of the Caesar salad for you.
This popular dish was originally created in 1924 by Italian chef Caesar Cardini at his restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico and was prepared and served right at the table. The original recipe for this salad did not include anchovies.

And my recipe:

Ingredients
  • fresh lettuce (for an example cos lettuce) - I used a mixture;
  • 300 g of tomatoes or cherry tomatoes - I used the yellow ones;
  • chicken fillet;
  • salt and black pepper;
  • 4 slices of white bread - I used 2;
  • 0,5 dl of olive oil;
  • 50 g of Parmesan cheese;
Lay the fresh lettuce on the plate. Slice the tomatoes or divide the cherry tomatoes into two halves. Fry the chicken fillet until it's golden from both sides and flavour. Cool a little and cut into strips. Lay on the salad.
Fry the white bread and cut into cubes. Scatter on the salad. Trickle the olive oil on the salad and chop the Parmesan. Serve right away.

The delicious outcome!

I also cooked raspberry-coconut muffins.

Ingredients
  • 4 dl of flour;
  • 2 dl of sugar;
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder;
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla;
  • 2 eggs;
  • 120 g of butter;
  • 2 dl of coffee cream;
  • 185 g of coconut flakes;
  • 3 dl of frozen raspberries;
Heat the oven up to 180 degrees. Take the muffin pan and muffin cups. Mix flour, sugar, vanilla and baking powder in one bowl. In the other bowl mix eggs, melted and cooled butter and coffee cream. Finally put the two mixtures together, add coconut flakes and frozen raspberries. Mix and put in the muffin cups (fill at least 2/3 of the cup). Bake for about 15-20 minutes. Serve your muffins warm or warmish.

I ate my muffins with fresh strawberries and orange juice.
Feel free to ask if something is unclear!

    aah suve ja maasikaid paluks! kuigi, see tahtmine ei ole kellelegi üllatus, arvestades seda, et talv on üle nelja kuu kestnud juba... and that's just way too long

    sul hakkas talv juba oktoobris või? :D
    mulle muidu eesti talv väga meeldib, siuke õige talv ikka, eelmisel aastal oli mõnus ja sel aastal ka, kuniks esimene sula tuli ja kõik ära rikkus. edasi läks juba nii koledaks. ja nüüdseks on lihtsalt liiga kaua juba olnud, võiks tulla kevad ja sealt edasi... kaua võib

  4. mhm, oktoobrist alates on lumi maas ja see tähendab automaatselt talve! :D (õnneks ma pole ainuke, kes asjast nii aru saab) ja see on lihtsalt ebaaus, et ülejäänud kolmele aastaajale jääb kokku sama palju aega kui ühele vastikule talvele! :|
