Well, Friday was a very long workday. Since the kiddos who I take care of (two more weeks and than I am done!!!) are out of school I’ve been spending some very long days having play dates, going to swimming and tennis lessons, baking cupcakes, doing endless art projects, jumping on the trampoline, playing baseball and hide and seek, dressing dolls, knitting, sewing, preparing endless amount of snacks and lemonade – you got the idea. 100% Momma work. No complains though, other than the long hours. On Friday I also made dinner for the family.
This is what I made:
Hungarian style “Paella” or Spicy Sausage/Chicken/Rice dish or Rizseshus 🙂
1 bell pepper
3-4 medium roma tomatoes, or 2 big heirloom tomatoes
4 links of spicy Habanero & Green Chile sausage ( Aidells )
1 large chicken breast
1 ½ tablespoon Hungarian paprika
1 cup rice (cooked separately) –
Sautee diced onion and bell pepper on some canola oil
Dice chicken breast and slice sausage
Chop the tomatoes
When the onions and bell peppers are soft add chicken, sausage, tomatoes
Sprinkle with paprika, salt, pepper
Cook it for about 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked
Mix with rice
EAT 🙂 Warning: This dish is very tasty! It has true Hungarian flavors, rich paprika, smokey sausage and spicy juices. It can be made with chicken thighs, turkey meat or any kind of meat. The only thing is necessary is the spicy/smokey sausage.
The other thing we made were some fancy Rainbow Cupcakes. The girls really wanted to make something that we never made before and it is unconventional so this is what happened :
The secret is to make a regular vanilla batter, get 5 bowls (at least), divide the batter and add food coloring to every single batch. This way we had 5 differently colored batter. When filling up the cupcake liners we mixed and matched and went gaga with the colors ( I mean the girls did ;)))
This is how our hippi cupcakes looked like out of the oven.
And this is how they looked after my sweet girlie girls frosted them 🙂 Pink and blue and super girlie. What happened to the rainbow colors?
Oh well. I guess there are two super fun steps about making cupcakes and one of them is definitely the frosting part ( they want no adult opinion or supervision or any adult presence at all). It is their art after all.
The second best part is licking the frosting 🙂
