Sutlu irmik tatlisi01

When the weather of London is not nice to us, there is always an extra activity in our kitchen. Today we didn’t want to eat the stew we have in the fridge and cooked mezzanelli pasta in owen (fırında makarna), aubergine salad (patlıcan salatası) and semolina dessert (sütlü irmik tatlısı). Semolina dessert, is one of the most practical desserts we cook in Turkey. Mostly, mothers’ saver for a milky dessert to serve to their children and all children (and big children) love it.

The ingredients and the recipe are super easy:

Mix 150 g of semolina with 180 g of sugar in a pan.  Add 1 litre of milk while whisking.  Add 1 teaspoon butter.  Cook ower low heat until getting thick (like a very thick cream soup), meanwhile keep whisking. Take the pan from the cooker. Divide the pudding in 6 small ramekins. After cooling down little bit, cover with aluminium foil and put to the fridge to set. Serve with ground cinnamon.

Note: Normally we serve this dessert after taking out the dish and upside down. For taking out easyly the dessert, make sure that you wet inside of  the ramekins with water before dividing the dessert to them after cooking. You can use different molds to serve your dessert in different shapes.

Enjoy!

Cotswolds towns are one of our favorite destinations in UK. The second town we visited last week after Painswick, is Bibury which is a 600-700 persons populated little town.

The town’s most visited parts are Arlington Row and the riverside lined by beautiful stone cottages. Bibury is not a place to spend hours maybe but certainly worth to pop up even for a short walk to see these beautiful old cottages.

Last week on our way to Silverstone for Moto GP, we visited two beautiful Cotswolds towns. The first town we stopped is Painswick. We walked on the narrow streets of the town and took some photos. We looked for a nice place to drink something but it was little bit like a ghost town and most of the shops were closed.

Anyway we enjoyed our walk on the streets lined of Cotswolds stone houses. The sun was not shining on that part of the day, pitty for the photos but it was nice to visit another town of this beautiful part of our little kingdom.

British Moto GP 2013 Silverstone

British Moto GP 2013 Silverstone

When we were in Turkey, we were riding in every possible occasion but since we came to London we are away from our bikes and our riding joy and we miss to be on the way again. Normally we are not very big fans of racing bikes or watching the races from tv but we definitely enjoy to watch the Moto GP on the track.

Last four days we were in Silverstone for British Grand Prix 2013 and we came back home with lots of beautiful photos and big smiles in our faces. We watched with big pleasure big boys leaning in the curves just in front of us, heard the amazing voice of the engines during three days.

Three Spanish riders Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa crossed the checkered flag first, second and third but we supported as always our number 46, Valentino “The Doctor” Rossi. Our Italian boy finished fourth the race but still number one in our hearths.
