Mashed potatoes with something extra

It’s one of the easiest things to do and one can vary it as differently as he or she just wants.

I do have time for experiences – at least I’m not disturbed by the different match times of ManUtd. The trouble is when your team no longer compete in different leagues and cups that you can easily get bored. It’s only the beginning of February and no FA Cup, no League Cup – and I’ve already started to miss United. (And more then ever, because my cable network suspended the channel that shows Premier League matches – they are in talks now about a new contract. And streams are not that good to watch…)

So, it seems like it’s one match per week – and yeah, Champions League may not bring any relief, given our performances. Continue reading


Steamed broccoli with lemon butter – and Norwich, away

It’s Saturday, early afternoon and I’m going for a really easy one – the next day, Sunday will be my day with a good matchday program with Premier League football and NFL on from the afternoon till midnight and more. So it’s just a bit of broccoli with lemon butter – a good try for my vegetarian days. And the green broccoli goes well with Norwich’s yellow and green…

And once again a tricky away game, and we know that, last time here United lost 1-0 in the PL. Norwich is can be hard to beat, oh, yeah, although this year they’re showing sings of inconsistency and that loss in the blue part of Manchester is horrible for them.

Prior to the game we went to Metro, to buy salmon for the next day’s menu, so we just popped in for the kick-off. By the time I sliced the broccoli and put the florets into the saucepan to steam it, ten minutes had gone from the match, and United’s possession is almost eighty percent in the game. But after something like 8-10 minutes in the saucepan – it’s Norwich pressing in front of our goal – and a couple of DDG saves are keeping us level, only. Add salt, pepper or other desired seasoning to the broccoli for the flavour.
