Yesterday started bad but ended good. I am talking about cooking not other things. I prepared another batch of baked potatoes like the ones in the photo. I calculated 1 – 2 hours till the child will start screaming:”Mommy, I am hungry!”
I opened the oven and putted the tray inside. I turned the oven on and surprise: It was not working. I tried everything but nothing worked. I called my husband and he got the same result. He called a friend to come and help. He is a great electrician. He said is gone take a while. I was leaving home for a German course and I knew I am gone be gone for a few hours, so I thought I need to leave some food for the child. Husband is an adult and can take care of himself.
Anyway, I had an idea: I am gone take some potatoes from the tray that I prepared and boiled them and made them with sour cream and dill. In another pot I took the chicken liver and made it with beer and garlic.
Chicken liver was supposed to go on top of the potatoes in the oven.
In the end, I managed to make something to eat for my kid before leaving the house.
Is the first time when I tried something different with chicken liver: I put the liver in melted butter and let it cook for a few minutes and then I added 100 ml beer and 3 garlic gloves and let it simmer for another minutes on small fire.
When I was in the middle of cooking the power went off. Outside was a storm. I was lucky that our stove is not connected to power, otherwise I was doomed. Our friend came and checked the oven in the same time we didn’t have any power. HA! HA!
In the middle of his checking the power came on. Great! But, still no oven, and now we have to wait for the guys from the shop to come and repair it.
All I can say in the end is that I tasted the food before I left the house and I was surprised how good it was. When I got home my husband told me that my kid and my neighbor kid ate a full plate of liver and potatoes and they loved it.
So this is another cooking improvisation that went well. Do you have any good recipes coming from improvisations in the kitchen? Please, share it with me! I would love to hear all about it.
