  • Parsley

To do

1. Chop all the veggies.

2. Fry onions, sweet potatoes, zucchini, capsicum, chickpeas, lentils for few minutes on medium heat.

3. Add the yoghurt and taco spices. Blend well.

4. Add the chicken broth (or water and chicken cube). Cook until the potatoes soften.

5. Add chopped parsley.

Enjoy !


Making dumplings with chicken filling 🥟

Good Thursday to you!

Today I want to gift you a recipe for chicken dumplings which is just delicious! It’s easy to make and you can involve your kids in the making as well just as I did.

The dough consits of water and flour. You can add a teaspoon of oil if you don’t want your dough to be too sticky. Use always warm water else your dough will be like worse than a rubber.

For the filling I have used :

  • 2 chicken legs
  • 2 red onions
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • a half chicken cube

You have to cook the chicken legs. While the chicken legs are cooking dice the onions and garlic. Fry it together until the onions becomes soft and the colors seem to be less purple with the chciken cube. You can add a little bit of water if the chicken cube is not disolved. Set aside and check the chicken. If the chicken is cooked and there is no sign of blood left peel off the skin and put the meat in a bowl together with the fried inions and garlic. Use a handmixer if possible or blender to blendall the ingredients together into a paste.

Then roll the dough and cut out circles with a glass. Put feeling inside with a spoon and fold the dough. You can use the fork to tighten the edges just like my baby did.

You can cook the dumplings in water, steam them or fry them. Don’t forget to enjoy!

The way I celebrate Mother’s Day

Hello my dear people! Welcome to another amazing post ☺️. The season for happy mothers shall begin 😂 nah … I’m joking. But it’s actually Mother’s Day. I started a little early to be honest. In Poland we celebrate on 26th of May and in Sweden on 28 of May. I’m going by the Polish date. But instead of making this day all about me I choose to do something fun with my kids.

We’ve discussed a few days earlier about going outside to eat and play. Unfortunately the McDonalds in Globen ceased to exist so we could only play. I took the kids to Tolv Stockholm which is placed in the same building as Tele2 arena.

My boys were super excited when they saw so many different games in the arcade room 😂. They had a difficult time settling for one game for a longer period of time.

I think the most fun attraction for kids are those mini settings for bowling. I feel really happy that I took my boys to Tolv Stockholm. Except games, there are many restaurants, bowling, karaoke and night club. You can even find a small hotel in the building.

For me seeing them healthy and happy is the best gift I could get as a mother. Maybe it sounds a little too corny 😅 but it’s simple as that. Because if not for them I wouldn’t be able to celebrate this day. To have this little devils in my life is filled with unexpected events but I wouldn’t exchange my role as their mom for anything else.

Life is an adventure and it’s much more fun when you spend it on making your children happy. Still I do not forget to set boundaries, else I wouldn’t be able to leave that place 😂.

Since there was no McDonald’s and kids wanted to ride bus back home we’ve decided to have pizza for dinner at home but before that a snack at a nearby fast food building, without it I would have two dissatisfied kids.

Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more amazing posts ! 🌟
