Lazy Sunday with Woody in the background ...

Please let nothing happen today...we get up late and still in my pajamas, I cook pancakes for breakfast. We make some coffee, and do not have the desire to do anything. Good. 
Today is Oscar night. A new Woody Allen film has the nomination for "Midnight in Paris". Like always, a genius plot, music, and setting! Especially the portrayal of the 20s! The costumes! 
Feathers and cigarettes! The music, the music, the music!
We are also keeping our fingers crossed for Agnieszka Holland's film, "In Darkness". Finally a film, which we can be proud of.  Wieckiewicz , whenever he has to act, he does an amazing job. He makes us fall to our knees, and with this role he has only proven that he has no competition. This film definitely has to be recognized. 
So today, we are staying at home a digging up some old movies. 

There is no option for me to get out of the house today, I shall cook whatever is in the fridge. 

Ingenious ricotta scones with cream cheese

From when I found this recipe on a divine blog called mojewypieki.blox.pl, I have been baking pancakes almost every sunday! They are wonderfully soft, and melt in your mouth! Thank you for the recipe!

250 g of  ricotta cheese
125 ml of milk
2 large eggs, separate white and yolk
100 g of flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of oil
(You can also add sugar)
Today, I added a grated rind of orange and the juice of half of the fruit.
Whip egg whites to stiff and set them aside.The rest of the ingredients should be put together and mix gently with the foam at
the end.


For dinner
 I made two tarts: they always taste good,  are made fast and are a nice fit for a movie day

Crust (a portion of two tarts)

250 g of flour
125g butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon of water or cream (according to how dense the dough is)
The crust, should be knead quickly and put in the fridge for at least a half an hour

Stuffing 1

500g spinach
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
4 slices bacon
2 potatoes
salt and pepper
blue cheese to sprinkle on top (I used Gorgonzola cheese)

 Spinach blanch and drain very well. . Bacon  cut into pieces and fried.  Now we cook onions with a spoon of olive oil on frying pan  for a couple minutes .  Wash the potatoes,  peel and cut them into thin slices and then fry in oil until golden. Then put to the pan spinach with garlic and fry until  all water evaporate.  Add the bacon and onion ,salt and pepper (as much as you need).On the crust, place potatoes and spinach, on the top sprinkle blue cheese and bake in temp. 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

Stuffing 2

1 package of maccaroni and cheese
1 broccoli
1 red paprika
1 onion
1 egg
half cup of sour cream (I put less)

salt, pepper,nutmeg
sharp cheddar or Parmesan for sprinkling

Cook the pasta according to directions on package, but let it harden a little.Fry the onion on a spoon of olive oil, add chopped peppers and then, use a minute for it to cool. Broccoli should be moved up to a minute to the boiling water and cool down in ice water.Macaroni, broccoli, onion and pepper should be placed together, add cream mixed with egg and the spices . Put the stuffing out on the baked part, and sprinkle with cheese. Cook at temp.350 degrees for about 20 m.
