Weekly Dinners With My Big Brother

I have two older brothers, Sebastian and Dariusz. The latter one lives in Gothenburg just as me, and since January we meet for dinner once a week. We take turns cooking for each other, and tonight it’s my turn. I think that it’s a really nice “tradition” we have, it’s cosy to meet so often and it’s nice to get a lunch box with leftovers for the next day. At work when I warm the leftovers from my brother’s dinner every second week, I proudly say that my brother made it for me :-) During dinner we talk about all sorts of things: movies, computer games (escpecially World of Warcraft that we both play) and many other subjects. I’m glad that I meet my brother so often and that we have a good relationship. In December this year he will turn 40 and I will turn 30 next March, so we have even talked about arranging a special birthday party together. But until then we will continue with our weekly dinners.

Now a few words about not blogging for a long time. I’ve been really busy at work, please don’t mention Denmark and electronic invoices or I’ll have problems breathing :-) Life as a programmer isn’t always easy…. And also I’m nowadays an online game addict, thanks to Fredrik and my brother I can’t stop playing World of Warcraft… Shame on you! But I do have some photos and recipes from recent baking och cooking that I will post very soon.

Tonight when my brother comes I will serve a great vegetarian lasagna, I’ve meantioned it in my blog earlier. Yesterday I prepared the sauce and today I’ll assemble the whole lasagna and put it in the oven.

Vegetarian Lasagna

Red Sauce
2 carrots, chopped
2 zucchinis, chopped
2 onions, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
0,5 fresh chilli, finely chopped
1 handful fresh basil, finely chopped
1 tsp sugar
400 gram crushed tomatoes (tin or box)
1,5 deciliter cream
black pepper. minced
1 stock cube, vegetable

1 bag of fresh spinach
125 gram Feta cheese

100 gram grated cheese
Some grated Parmesan

Last but not least
Lasagna sheets

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees C.
Fry the garlic and the onions. Add carrots, zucchini, cream, tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients for the sauce. Let the sauce simmer for 10 minutes. Assemble the lasagna by first greasing a casserole dish with olive oil. Add the first layer of lasagna sheets and then the sauce. Add half of the spinach and half of the Feta cheese. Then add a new layer of lasagna sheets, sauce, spinach and feta cheese. Then add a last layer of lasagna sheets, cover with the remainings of the sauce and put all cheese on the top. Cook in the oven for about 25 minutes. Serve with a salad.

    Hi Kate, Thanks and welcome! Unfortunately I don’t live in the same city as my brother anymore, so I really miss our dinners.
