I ate, he ate

Tonight I ate:

and tonight he ate:

Do you spot the difference? 🙂
At first I wanted a sausage as well but then I saw it swimming in its own fat (oh so much fat) which made me think differently about wanting it. Ate corn-on-the-cob and tomatoes instead and I’m very happy about that decision.

Gnocchi with cream and bacon
Gnocchi with a Bacon-Cream Sauce

It’s a dinner which goes fast and men (at least mine) love it (it’s got bacon) 🙂
Got the idea from my mom, she made it a couple of weeks ago and it was soo good so I started making it as well (with the help of my boyfriend of course).
Gnocchi with cream and bacon
You need:

  • Gnocchi (500g for two people)
  • Butter (you can use oil, but seing it’s a quite fatty meal already (cream, butter, bacon) I use butter for the taste
  • Onions
  • Bacon
  • Cream
  • grinded Parmesan Cheese
  • To spice it up: Herbs, sunflower seeds, black & white pepper, Curcuma, salt

In a pan, put a chunk of butter with the onions and let them get glassy. Then add the bacon and sunflower seeds if you want. Add the cream and grinded parmesan and let it simmer. Add spices.
I then made the Gnocchi in a separate pan and added the cream sauce and mixed it all together. Tastes good with a big mixed salad on the side.

Dinner @ Schatzi
Just a random dinner post

Why do so many bloggers post their dinner? Maybe to have something to blog about, I don’t know.
Here’s our dinner we had tonight
Dinner @ Schatzi
Quinoa with Gnocchi (made in butter with sunflower and pumpkin seeds) and green asaparagus made in olive oil with garlic and onions. And herbs and spices. It was very yummy and the lover was proud he ate a dinner without meat.

Last week was a very hot one. Around 35° Celsius Monday to Thursday. At the gym I only made my strength circuit and on Friday I made some barbell training. Cardio I made by riding my bike to work every day (35km) or going jogging, although it was soo hot I didn’t even go jogging. It’s cooler now, it’s raining every now and again and it’s 20° Celsius colder than last week. I’ll go to the gym tomorrow morning again for a few hours. Can’t wait 🙂
