|Parents:||Ohhh, look, it's the baby's first word!|
|Baby:||o-oo, o-o, o|
|Parents:||I wonder what the baby is going to say?|
|Baby:||Only those with excellent social standing and those from filthy rich families are lucky enough to spend their time here at the elite private school, Ouran Academy. The Ouran Host Club is where the school's handsomest boys with too much time on their hands entertain young ladies who also have way too much time on their hands. Just think of it as the Ouran Academy's elegant playground for the super-rich and beautiful.|
It’s a cute little thing though.
What a weird cat.
Hello! Long post about Romanian cuisine coming :D
So, to begin with, I have to tell you that the peoples of South-Eastern Europe tended to influence one another quite a lot, including food, so there are a lot of dishes that entered these cuisines hundreds of years ago, and have become so deeply rooted into our cultures,and a lot of recipes deemed “traditional” or “specific” for a country, are, in fact, encountered at our neighbors as well, with more or less changes. Romanian cuisine has been heavily influenced by Turkish, Greek, Russian and German cuisine, so don’t be disappointed if you encounter “sarmale” sold as Romanian traditional dishes, only to find them again in Turkey, because they suffered major changes and they even vary from one Romanian region to another.
The first thing foreigners should try when they come here is Borş. It is a type of soup with different ingredients, soured with either vinegar, or, in Moldavia, where I come from, with a traditional product called… “ borş”, made from fermented wheat bran. We usually add sour cream (don’t let the name fool you, it doesn’t add extra sour, it generally sweetens it up a bit), onion/spring onion or hot peppers. There are many types of borş, and here are my favourites:
borş de vita ( beef borş) with potatoes/homemade noodles:
borş de perişoare ( meatball borş with rice)
borş de fasole cu ciolan ( borş with beans and smoked meat)
In many parts of the country, borş is called “ciorba”, but in Moldova, we differentiate them : borş contains that fermented bran product, while ciorba is soured with vinegar.
The following one is usually the one that foreigners are really skeptic about trying, the tripe ciorba, soured with vinegar, sour cream and garlic
If you are uncomfortable with tripe, as I am, there is the delicious alternative of ciorba radauteana, which is made similarly, only from chicken breast.
After borş, the next thing you should try are Romania’s most beloved Sarmale. They are made from minced meat and rice, wrapped in sauerkraut or vine leaves, usually served with sour cream and mamaliga (polenta)
The same stuffing can be used to make ardei umpluti (stuffed peppers):
or varza a la Cluj (cabbage a la Cluj)
Another popular food is the tochitura. It is made from beef or pork, served with polenta, salty cheese (telemea - similar to the Greek feta), fried eggs and tomato sauce). From my personal experience, this is the dish that most foreigners get to love.
If we are on the subject of meat, these are worth mentioning :
Chiftele/ Parjoale (in Moldova) - deep fried meatballs, that can be served simple or in tomato sauce
Mititei - fried or barbecued minced meat with special spices, served with mustard, this is our own fast food :
And traditional meat products - sausages, smoked meat,
One of my favourite dishes is the ciulama de pui (chicken ciulama) - it’s a meat dish served with sour cream sauce and mushrooms
As for appetizers, three salads are worth mentioning:
Eggplant salad with mayonnaise
Boeuf salad ( sounds French, but it’s totally Romanian) - we usually eat it on holidays, my mom makes the best one I’ve yet to try :D
Ardei copti http://www.reteteculinare.ro/forum/files/placinta-foi-cu-mere-64334.jpg - Roasted peppers with vinegar
And of course, the beloved Romanian zacusca
Romanians also love mamaliga- polenta, and they eat it with sour cream and various types of cheese
As for deserts, these are really tasty :
Cozonac- usually around holidays
Various types of pie (apple, sweet cheese, pumpkin)
Alcoholic beverages- try our wine, it’s worldwide appreciated, the wine making tradition has thousands of years on our lands, also tuica (traditional plum brandy), visinata (cherry liqueur), afinata (blueberry liqueur) and, of course, our beer, which is good and cheap ;)
