Cirnaciori with vegetables

As I mentioned in my earlier posts, cirnaciori, mititei and other stuff are Moldavian traditional food. People used to make them for a long time. And they are very very delicious. That's why I like to cook them, because there is now need these days to make them by yourself. You can by the in the market.
The super was consisting of cirnaciori, potatoes and vegetables.

The vegetables as you can see, are frozen. You can buy them in every market. All you have to do is to boil them for 10 min. Which I did for the first time in my life.

The Cirnaciori are also frozen, i cooked them in the microwave oven for 12 min. There is a red stuff on them, which surprised my, never seen something like that. They are probably using something additionally in order to make them look more attractive.
In the end this is what I got. That's a very colorful picture. You can see some broccoli there. But in Moldova we don't have this American tradition to eat broccoli. And we don't raise it.

Recently done

How mush does a kg of the highest quality pork costs in you country? Here in Moldova it is about 80 lei (less than 8$).

Here in Moldova, we don't like fat pancakes. Like in Russia, or USA for example. Since childhood I remember only thin pancakes. In my opinion they are tastier, easier to eat and healthier. You don't get fat from eating 3-4 thin pancakes, than eating fat pancakes.
The following picture represents my own pancakes. As you may notice they look different from the ones in the first picture.

The ingredients are:
1 l of milk
300-400gr of flour (but depends)
2 eggs

Mix everything and fry:) The best pancakes.

Sausages on potatoes

These days I was really tired, and didn't have enough time to cook something normal.
But it is good when you have some ready products, which can be bought in the super market.
The sausage you see in the picture, is a traditional moldavian sausage. Our grandparents were making these stuff at home. And what is good to mention that these sausages can be very different, like bloody, fatter, bigger, different meat.

These are different types of sausages. But the next one is the one I bought in the super market. It's a beef one made off.
I just cut the potatoes, put the sausage on them. And put it in the oven for 30 min. It was really great.


This is a type of traditional soup, which is very easy to cook.
It will take you not more than 15 min, to prepare it.

The Ingredients are:
all sort of salami and sausages. About 300-400 gr of different sausages.

Method of preparing:
Chop the onion and carrots and fry them all together for 5 min. Than add the chopped sausages, as it is shown in th picture. Fry it for some more minutes. And than add it into a bowl with water. Until it starts boiling. After it add some olives, like 10 for example. And when you put this soup into the plate, you should add a piece of lemon.

Felul 2 - Potatoes with chicken hearts and mushrooms, in the oven

This is my own recipe of potatoes with chicken hearts and mushrooms, made in the oven. But although it is made from traditional ingredients that are used in Moldova. It took me about 40 min. But in the end, it became very tasty and gentle taste. So here it is...

The ingredients are:
8 huge potatoes
1kg of chicken hearts
300 gr of mushrooms
1 onion

The method of preparing:
Cut the potatoes as it is shown in the pictures and put the in the pan. Than add some spices. The second level should be of chicken hearts, there is no need to chop them. Just put them the way they are. Than cover it with onions.
Another slice should be of mushrooms, follow the pictures. Also add spices.
And again cover it with potatoes. The last step is the mayonnaise.
What is important that there is no need to add any water in it. The hearts will eliminate their own sous and that will be enough. Put it in the oven for 30-40 min.
