Hey lovelies!

On Sunday we finally arrived in Amsterdam. We wanted to be in Amsterdam before 12 o’clock but I didn’t want to leave my bed. So we drove a bit later.

We parked in a garage and went with our belongings to the hotel. Our stay was the beautiful Manor Hotel. Which we booked for 2 nights.

After checking in the hotel, we went to the Oosten Park that is next to our hotel.

Then we walked so much through beautiful Amsterdam. Slowly we got so hungry and we went to our favorite restaurant: Kantjil de Tijger. It is an Indonesian restaurant. The food is so tasty and to die for. I ate Nosi Goreng. My Nasi Goreng was made with fried rice, marinated meat and veggies. Every part of my dish was a mouth explosion. Jan, on the other hand, wanted to try something else out and ordered a special menu that included coconut rice, veggies and marinated meat as well.

Unfortunately, it started raining after dinner. We walked for 40 minutes in the rain. Because of that I caught a cold 🙈

See you in the next

Hallo ihr Lieben!

Am Sonntag haben wir es nach 3 Jahren  endlich wieder nach Amsterdam geschafft! Wir wollten eigentlich früher raus, aber ich wollte länger liegen. Da ich die Tage nicht so gut geschlafen habe. 

Wir waren im schönen Manor Hotel angekommen und haben uns etwas ausgeruht. Danach sind wir zum Oosten Park gelaufen, der Park war bei uns in der Nähe.  

Daraufhin sind wir in der Stadt spazieren gegangen, haben viele Bilder geschossen und viel gelacht.

Wir waren sehr hungrig und sind zum Kantjil de Tijger gelaufen. Das ist ein indonesisches Restaurant, wo wir schonmal gegessen haben. Ich hatte das Nasi Goreng, welches ein gebratenes Reisgericht ist. Dazu hatte ich Gemüse, ein Ei und Fleisch. Jan hatte ein balinesisches Menü, das Kokosnuss-Reis, Frühlingsrolle, Gemüse und Sparerips beinhaltet. Mein Essen war so lecker und alle Zutaten haben so anders und so gut geschmeckt. Das Restaurant ist wirklich echt empfehlenswert!

Es hat nach dem Essen geregnet und wir sind leider 40 min durch den Regen gelaufen, weil wir keine öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln nehmen wollten. Und nun bin ich dadurch leicht erkältet.

Wir sehen uns im nächsten Post! <3

Hey!

Sunday is the day where we get the most things done. We always do laundry, deep clean the apartment and we remove clothes we don’t wear anymore. Besides, I don’t like to feel detached to things.

After that, we were very hungry and knew we wanted to eat a burger. Then we looked for a good burger restaurant on the internet. We found one and  drove to Jamy’s Burger to try their food out. At Jamy’s Burger, I ordered a delicious cheesy portobello burger and Jan ordered an ordinary one with eggs. The portobello burger was the only vegetarian option that they had. And some of you know that I’m always on the hunt for a much healthier option because in general I consume  little to no meat.

Ok, now let’s put the focus on my outfit. Because as always it turned into a little ootd session and it really makes fun to shot with my love. 😉

This jumpsuit with little shoulder pads is over 6 years old, can you believe it? Yes, I keep good and unique stuff sometimes, when I know that it will be trendy in the future, isn’t it clever? By the way, I bought it in Primark, when Primark was very cool and the most famous shop back then. If I find a similar jumpsuit, I will let you ladies know, I promise!

I  put on my Birkenstock sandals that I usually wore as a “house shoe”. But I think it still fits my outfit. To complete my whole style, I wore my new sunnies and grabbed my brown faux leather bag I bought last year at H&M.

As you can see, I kept it simple as always.

See you in my next post! <3

 

//Hallo ihr Lieben!

Sonntag sind wir immer sehr fleißig. Wir putzen die Wohnung gründlich, waschen unsere Wäsche und sortieren Kleidung aus, die wir nicht mehr anziehen. Die werden dann meistens verschenkt.

Danach waren wir das 1. Mal Burger essen bei Jamy’s Burger. Ich hatte einen leckeren Burger mit Portobello Pilzen und Käse, Jan hatte eins mit Fleisch und Ei.

Nun zum Outfit. Ich hatte meinen blauen Jumpsuit an, den ich schon seit 6 Jahren habe. Manchmal behalte ich gute und einzigartige Sachen. Dazu hatte ich noch meine Birkenstock Sandalen und meine braune Tasche, die ich letztes Jahr beim H&M gekauft habe.

Ah und meine runde Sonnenbrille habe ich von Rayban. Ich hatte auch eine Ähnliche, aber sie ist dann kaputt gegangen.

The Best Vegetarian Jollof Rice ever!

The Best Vegetarian Jollof Rice ever!

Jollof Rice

Hey!

A week ago I cooked a rice dish that is named Jollof Rice. I showed a little of the process on my instagram story. Jollof rice is made with tomatoes, paprika, spices and ingredients. It’s mostly consumed in Nigeria, Ghana, Gambia and Senegal.

And here is a vegetarian/vegan vision of my own way of making healthy Nigerian Jollof Rice. I kept the ingredients minimalistic and very tasty!

What you’ll need for the Jollof Rice Recipe (for 4 people)

2x tomatoes
1x bell pepper
1/2 habanero
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1x charlotte onion
3x garlic cloves
5x sliced spring onions
thumb size ginger
1 teaspoon of oil
1 tablespoon Thyme
1x veggie cube (Knorr)
2x bay leaves
tablespoon curry powder
3 cups of parboiled rice
3 cups of water
salt/pepper to taste!

Tomatoes and OnionsJollof Rice Spices

First of all blend the tomatoes, bell peppers, habanero, onions and garlic. After that pour this puréed goodness into a pot of oil and add concentrated tomato puree into the mix. Fry and stir everything until you get a thick aromatic paste. This process will take you almost 20 minutes.

Jollof Stew Herbs

Now it’s time to add the remaining spices to the puree. After that, throw in the washed parboiled rice. Mix everything thoroughly.  Pour enough water to the red rice mix. It’s important that the water is on the same level as the rice so that the rice won’t stick to the pot.

Lastly, close the pot and cook the rice till it’s soft on very low heat for 15 minutes. Enjoy..!

P.S. I’m sorry for being so inconsistent with my blog. In the future, I will get hopefully better in doing this. 🙂

Hey!

Thursday was a holiday in Germany. Actually, we didn’t know what to do. So we decided to drive spontaneously to Heidelberg. Heidelberg is just 45 minutes away from us. The city isn’t that far compared to the long distance which we have driven.

By the way, we’ve been in Heidelberg before. We just stayed there for a few hours because we drove in the evening.

We went for a walk, took a lot of pictures as always and went to the Old Bridge.

After that, we spent our time looking for a good and cheap place to eat. Then we chose a Korean restaurant ‘Gogi Matcha‘. I ordered Bibimbap and some other things. In my case, Bibimbap is a rice bowl with veggies, chili sauce and is served with a fried egg. The food there was more than delicious. You should visit that place, too!

Hey!

Am Donnerstag war ja Feiertag. Wir sind abends spontan für ein paar Stunden nach Heidelberg gefahren.

Dort sind wir spazieren gegangen und haben viele Bilder auf der Alten Brücke geschossen. Leider haben wir das Heidelberger Schloss nicht mehr besucht.

Nach längerer Essenssuche sind wir beim Koreaner Gogi Matcha gelandet.
Ich hatte ein leckeres vegetarisches Bibimbap. Das ist ein typisches koreanisches Gericht mit Reis, Gemüse und dazu ein Spiegelei.
