Yesterday, In Romania , we celebrated „Dragobete’s Day”, which is our Valentine’s Day. We had it even before we knew about V Day, but most of the people living in the city did not do anything special. After all this V Day fuss started in our country, we also start celebrating our „Dragobete’s Day”. We try to make it less commercial, but is a lost war.
I don’t celebrate V Day because I think that V day is everyday. You need to show and tell the loved ones everyday that you love them and care about them. Flowers and gifts will make you a better person maybe for one day. This is my philosophy and I don’t expect that everyone agrees with me.
So it was just a coincidence when I made this dessert. I wanted to put it on my blogg before any celebration, but a stupid cold kept me in bed for almost 1 week. Even now I am not 100%, but I have to keep moving. I have a small boy who doesn’t know what cold is.
So, I made this dessert in the morning, and knowing my son will watch some cartoons, I prepared my setup on the terrace. Morning light in the winter is different from morning light in the summer so I needed to move fast. When I was almost done with my setup, my boy decided that what mom was doing is more interesting, and since he, also, has a camera, he will shoot the dessert like me.
I brought the camera and we start taking photos. Me with my setup and him with a bowl of strawberries. He was so funny trying to do what I was doing. Then he got bored and start eating strawberries. He got bored again and then he climbed a chair next to my table and start saying „I want to eat dessert!” and keep touching the glasses. I was laughing so hard that I could not say anything to him.
In the end, I managed to take a few photos and then I gave him the dessert, because I knew I don’t have any chance for other photos. He has a working camera with film and is very happy taking photos. I can’t wait for him to grow and understand a little about photography.
The setup for this photos was very simple. Large windows in front of the camera and on the left side. Glasses on a wooden background with a wooden board in the back.
So before I leave you to your day, here is the recipe for this dessert:
- 3 tablespoons Chia seeds
- 200 ml milk or soya milk or almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A hand of strawberries
Combine milk with vanilla and chia seeds, Mix well until combined and the mixture begins to thicken. Store covered in the refrigerator overnight or for at least an hour. Stir well before serving and add a bit of water to the pudding if it becomes too thick.
On the bottom of the glass add pieces of strawberries and then add the mix on top. Ornate with strawberry and serve it cold or at room temperature. I put some more soya milk on top of the pudding to get a little bit of color.
If you think is not very sweet you can add maple syrup or raw honey. Leave it over night with the milk and chia seeds. Because I am using sweet fruits I don’t like to put honey or maple syrup, but this is my choice. Enjoy!
