Hectic Life, Busy Wife!

I am now officially a Mrs, yaaaay mission accomplished!
But seriously guys I can't believe that I am now a married woman, and that we actually made it, all the preparing and planning in time and that it was so beautiful and fun and exciting all at the same time. I cannot explain how happy it makes me to see his ring on my finger knowing that this amazing man is MINE!

It feels like a balloon deflating you know, now there is no stress, just normal day after normal day, going to work, cooking and cleaning. It's surreal after that incredibly hectic week before the wedding and after with family and friends visiting. Guests flying back. It took some time to come down from my pink cloud and get into my normal relaxed self. Also one of the reasons I haven't been posting, but now I am finally back! Can't wait to get the pictures so I can share them with you guys and relive an amazing day that passed too fast, that's one tip for you guys, try to let all the impressions soak in because suddenly the day will be over and you will be thinking when did the time pass.

Gotta go now I have some amazing weather to enjoy some delicious elder-flower cordial to make (recipe coming up!)

Catch you guys later!

Simple but Delicious Chicken Curry | Recipe

You know those days where you need to cook dinner but you don't have a clue what to cook. And you don't want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen (because it's the weekend and you rather relax and spend time with your family!). Well yesterday was one of those days, it's weekend, I want to spend time with Mr. M and just enjoy my time off. But we have to eat right? So I like to have a couple of simple recipes on hand for simple easy but still tasty cooking.

Yesterday it was Chicken curry, it's very simple with only a few ingredients that you probably already have at home and it takes little time to cook.

You need:
  • 4-5 diced bell peppers (different colors for a colorful meal)
  • 1 kg diced chicken breast
  • 2-3 diced tomato
  • 3-4 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 can of coconut-milk
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1-2 tbsp of curry
  • Chili to taste (I like mine HOT!)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil
You could also add zucchini, cauliflower or celery along with the peppers and you could top it with cilantro when serving for great taste and more color :)

Start with a large pot over medium heat, add the vegetable oil and the diced bell pepper, tomato, garlic and all the other vegetables. Cook until they have softened a little. Then add the chicken breast and cook until the meat is all white. Then add the coconut-milk and lemon juice. Let it come to a boil and add the curry, chili, salt and pepper to taste.

All done!
Serve with some fluffy rice and you have a yummy meal.
Try it and tell me what you think!
