Panados de frango

...or chicken fillets with bread crumbs.

Just take some chicken breast and cut very thin slices.
Season with salt, garlic and whatever you want as, for instace, some pepper.
Beat an egg and put the slices throught it. Take it out and do the same with bread crumbs.
Fry in oil, nor olive oil but maybe sunflowers or other like that.
That it and let it stand for a little bit on a paper to take the excess of oil.
Have it with rice, salad or chips.
You may make it with porc or veal.

It's Spring or what?

Spring here is very reluctant. Sometimes looks like it's coming in full force and then there comes the rain again.
Look at that!

Nice weather

Even so, I feel already that nesting instinct I have in the begining of Spring. I feel I want to clean, to tidy up, to do some gardening...

Some days ago I found in the market these nice flowers. Aren't they beautiful?
Well, time to stop dilly dalling in the internet. Back to homemaking.
See you tomorow.

To do

Aren't they beautiful? I have a passion for this plants and have a lot of them. I found those ones for sell and it's a pitty it doesn't show properly the exact colour here.

Now, thinking of homemaking.
I have a lot to do, begining with emptyimg the dishwasher and refill it.

Shine the stove.
If you are thinking on what is that in the middle I say: it's a grill, also in need of a good cleaning.

Empty the washer machine. I'd like to put the clothes on the line but I don't know if I can. It has rained so much. Maybe it's better to dry it in the machine. Mine is both things, washer and dryer.

Clean the microwave. Not much in need but I always give it a good clean every saturday.

Vacuum. Mmmm... Looks like the vacuum machine needs a cleaning itself.

Clean and tidy the cupboars.

Prunning some of my plants.

See the plants behind? They do need some work.

Make some bread?
Well, so many thing to do, these and a lot of others.
It's so good to be at home and do homemaking.

Where is Spring?

Looks like it was Christmas yesterday and we are already heading for Easter.
I like it very much. Looks like all the nature praises Our Lord.
Well, not yet. The Winter has been quite strong. It's always raining and it's cold.
I wouldn't mind if the rain stopped for a while so I can do a bit of gardening and dry my clothes on the line.
I do like Winter and cold but I think I need a bit of sun.
I've been looking in other blogs and many are making the same complaints. Where are the signs of Spring?
Let's be patient and wait a bit more.
