Happy friday my christmas friends.
Have you washed your boots and cleaned your room allready? I have a healthy and sweet treat for you today - yes meaning I actually prepared 2 recipes for this day.

The first recipe I prepared for you is this extremely yummy eggplant and zucchini lasagna.
You'll need:
  • eggplant
  • zucchini
  • hokaido pumpkin - about a  quarter to a half
  • 2 carrots
  • tomatoes or tomato juice
  • onion
  • garlic
  • seasoning of your choice - pepper, kurkuma, basil all are great choice
  • olive oil
  • cheese
Cut the onions and garlic and roast it on oil for a while. In the mean time prepare the hokaido pumpkin, slice it into whatever shape you like the best and also clean and cut the carrots. Put all of that into the pan with roasted onion and leave it roast as well while you cut tomatoes. Put tomatoes in and pour about a cup of water so that nothing will burn until the tomatoes make some juice. Leave it cook for about 15 minutes, or until you feel the hokaido and carrots are almost cooked. You're going to bake them afterwards. While it's cooking put the seasoning and salt into the pan an stir it in.

Cut zucchini and eggplant into slices, rounds or what ever you like and line them on the bottom of your baking tray you oiled a bit first.Then pour your cooked ingredients on top of that, and if you have enough of ingredients you can dofew more layers repeating this step.

In the end sprinkle some cheese on top, because that's what make it into a lassagna and bake for about 20 minutes on 180 degrees.

Christmas treat recipe: Shortbread cookies (Linecké pečivo):

  • 650g of smooth (dusting) flour 
  • 400g of butter
  • 150g of sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 20g of raising dipped in rum (optional)
First, you crumble hard(meaning you just picked it out of the fridge) butter into flour, add sugar and egg yolks. Mix into a dough and leave to sit for about 10-20 minutes. Then you spread the dough and core the shapes you have  the christmasier the better.
ALso at home we used to do ring ones and half of them with tiny small ring in the middle so that when they're connected you can see that jam scoopping out in the middle.
 You can decorate with raisins, even though I never done this step. Put into oven check out every 5-10 minutes and in about 15-30 minutes they should be done.
Once they coold down you can decorate it with decoration of you choice and finally connect them together with that home made jam you made yesterday.

Question of a day: What about those boots?
For those of you, who don't really know what I'm talking about, there is a tradition here that if you wash one of your boots and leave it on the window of your room (from inside, safety first) saint Nicolaus will come and fill that boot with sweets.

I sure did wash mine, and I told all of the toilet spiders we have to wash theirs too. And not to cheat, only one can go into the window, not all six of them. Do you think that spiders get chocolate flies in their boots?

Gilmore girls episode for today: 7x20 Lorelai? Lorelai?
Still not in the Christmas mode but again, I am absolutely loving this episode and when I watched it today my heart melted as always. Because there is simply too much perfection going on, like Luke and Lorelai bonding again and realising they still love each other and Rory coming home for a while, that song on that karaoke and also Logan. Who can not love this episode?

Christmas Carol for the day: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Now, don't tell me that as you pass by all of the houses all ready for christmas you don't sing this song along your journey. Wll if you didn't, now you will because I am as well. And I think that this christmas radio I found isn't really helping me.

Get a boiled wine, if you are old enough, because it's friday and it's a must!
