Yumyum Salad And More

November 12, 2009

It is already Thursday, this week is going by so fast, so I better get started on telling you a little bit about last weekend.  Food-wise, there was Yumyum Salad, a delicious breakfast with couscous, raisin, nuts, cinnamon and cardamom – perfect to start a long (shopping)day, a very tasty potato soup with truffles at a charity event, tortellini casserole, strawberry daiquiri in the middle of the night and fresh fish rolls at the fish market at 7:30pm on Sunday morning. It was definitely a culinary weekend after all. Let’s go back to the Yumyum Salad. Delicious to no ends. One of my colleagues fixed this easy recipe a few weeks ago and I had to share it with my best friend Rine and will now share it with you. It is very easy, yet so tasty.

What you need:

a chinese cabbage cut into small pieces

a few spring onions cut into small pieces

4 tablespoons sunflower seeds

4 tablespoons minced almonds

=> roast the seeds and almonds in butter

3 packs of yumyum chicken instant noodle dish


Take the noodles, break them in little pieces and put them in a bowl. Pour hot water over them, so that they are covered. Let them sit for a little bit and then strain them and add them to the chinese cabbage and the onions.

Take the mixed herbs from the yumyum packages (only the powder, not the liquids) and put them in a bowl. 

Add 4 tablespoons vinegar

1  cup oil

3 tablespoons sugar 

salt and pepper

and stir it well. The add it to rest and you are done! I hope you will enjoy it too.

Something totally different. Next to the 20th anniversary of the German reunion/the fall of the Berlin wall, the death of Robert Enke (one of the best German soccer goalkeeper) really hit me. I hope that his family will be fine eventually. Sincere condolences. It makes you think. There is a lot the public does not know and in my view is not supposed to know. However, his death is doubtlessly exemplary for our achievement-oriented society. Sadly.

    Nick’s parents were reminiscing this week about where they were when the Berlin Wall fell. I know we were young, but what do you remember?

      To be honest I do not remember much. My dad said I was asleep when the well known pictures were on TV. I remember details of the life before it, but I do not remember the event itself. Were Nick’s parents here around that time?
