This weekend I spent on my own. Tomek was out on his long, boys-only weekend. For me it usually means to be able to catch up on some reading, cooking, or just browsing. To be fair I didn’t catch up with too many things, I don’t know where time goes, but for sure it goes too fast.
When I’m on my own, I usually cook girly food, something sweet or fruity that boys treat rather as a dessert not a full meal. My favourite one is crepes with sweet cheese filling. My mom also needs to ignore my father’s grimace when he heard what’s for dinner. Well he is just a boy. Anyway, the filling is creamy and sweet and as usual it uses Polish cheese – twarog (also known as curd cheese, quark).
Twarog is very popular in Polish cuisine, we add it to sandwiches, stick it into cheesecakes, or pierogi, or other dumplings. I’m very happy that in Ireland you can get twarog easily, even some big chain stores have it. If you have problems with finding twarog, just replace it with ricotta, just be careful while adding liquids as it may need less of it.
Psst…If you ever wondered how my typical photo set up looks like, here you can get an idea. Very often a cat is in the middle of the table.
