It has long been known phrase: the path to the heart of a man lies through his stomach. If you do not know this yet, you have a chance to make sure of it. Soon after February 23! Make a festive dinner, do not be lazy to cook delicious dishes, cover a beautiful table and thus delight beloved men. I tried to find the menu so that the men were full and you, lovely hostesses, were not very tired.
Salad is quick, simple and tasty. It is somewhat similar to the native Olivier and at the same time has a light taste. Very good for snacks.
Ham cut into strips (300g), one fresh cucumber and one apple cut in the same way. Add there a jar of green peas, you can still 2-3 boiled eggs. I like to add Bulgarian pepper to it, but I know that many men do not like it. Mix all the ingredients, refuel with mayonnaise. Now spread the salad in beautiful ice-cream bowls, you can use wide glasses. Top with oranges and herbs. Oranges can be cut into strips and put in the form of a flower, the sun, and can be scattered into cubes.
Fettuccine with chicken and mushrooms
Pasta in a naval manner is already tired of cooking, and, frankly, their taste is mundane. And we will cook a more exquisite dish.
The main rule - fettuccine should be served exclusively hot, so you need to cook just before the feast. Buy 400-500 g of noodles (you can also call flat spaghetti), 300 g of chicken breast, 150 g of champignons, Parmesan cheese (100 g) and 200 ml of cream.
Mushrooms should be washed, cut into plates and fry in vegetable oil on both sides. Mushrooms are laid out on a skillet and over medium heat until golden brown. It is important that they are not very fried and not burnt, so watch the cooking. Remove the mushrooms on a plate. Now fry diced chicken until cooked. Chicken roast quickly, about 15 minutes. Then we salt, we pepper meat and we fill in with cream, we add mushrooms. Grate Parmesan and add to the same place, stew all to medium thickness. Part of the cheese can be added already on top of the finished dish. Now cook the pasta in salted water, they should not be too soft, throw them in a colander and allow to drain.
Portions spread on large flat dishes in the form of a nest: sprinkle the pasta with olive oil so as not to stick together, but you can also creamy, and put the chicken and mushrooms inside the nest. Sprinkle with cheese and decorate with greens. It is convenient to eat fettuccine, when you have a fork in your right hand and a spoon in your left hand: wind the pasta on the fork and hold it with a spoon.
The cake turns out great, sweet, and I, how many years have been preparing it for the holidays, have not yet met those who would not like it. I usually buy a package of ready-made cakes (there are three cakes), light or dark, this is a matter of taste. One can of boiled condensed milk, 250 ml not too thick sour cream. Sour cream dilutes the cloying cake. And somehow, instead of sour cream, I added a glass of yogurt, it turns out a very unusual fruit flavor. Therefore, I propose to use yogurt in combination with fruit (if we decorate with pineapples - pineapple yogurt, if cherries - cherry yogurt, the essence is clear).
When you have decided on a cream, we begin to prepare it. Condensed milk, glass of pineapple yogurt, beat with a mixer, add dessert spoon of lemon peel. And we begin to thoroughly coat the cakes. Put more cream between the layers, it is very quickly absorbed, otherwise the cake will be dryish. Place the first cake on a flat dish, drizzle with cream, then cover with the second cake, spread it with cream and place a shabby banana on top, and put the last cake on. We lightly coat it with cream, and top it with canned pineapples, kiwi and oranges. We cover the cake and put it in the fridge, it should soak for 3-4 hours. But you can, of course, eat immediately.
