HOMEMADE BACON CHEESE FRIES!

by admin on / BLOG, FOOD

Sunday, rainy, cold, foggy and hungry so these American styled Bacon Cheese Fries are the perfect small dish for a sunday! I learned to eat this in Las Vegas a long time ago and it’s the first time I’m making these myself at home… I miss you Vegas! These are the ingredients which you need, no special things, just pre-cooked fries, some fine chopped bacon, mozzarella cheese and some spring onions.

As I don’t have a fryer at home (I hate the smell) I always bake my fries in the oven, also much more healthier as the fryer. And it doesn’t makes your whole house smell – ha!

Next step, cook the bacon in a sticky pan! Don’t use any oil or butter as the bacon contains natural grease and it will melt when it’s heaten. If you add butter or oil, it well get way too greasy and all the taste of the bacon will get lost.

Once the bacon is nice and crispy, take it out the pan and let it sit on kitchenpaper to soak up the grease.

When the fries are done, nicely baked, yellow and crispy, take them out and put them in a bowl that’s made to go in the oven.

But some baking paper in it too! Add some paprika powder and pepper! No salt as the bacon is salty already.

Add the cheese first, add the bacon on top and then you’ll add the chopped spring onions. Add some extra pepper and paprika powder as a final step. You just know by the sight that this is going to be tasty!

Put it in the oven all together for 5 to 10 minutes and let the cheese melt. Keep a close eye on this so it doesn’t get burned!

Et voilaaaa! It’s done! I’m just having some extra mayo and ketchup with it. Don’t think this is like a mega greasy dish as it’s all light, light mayo, ketchup is ok, the fries are baked in the oven, the mozzarella cheese is also light so you don’t have to feel guilty when you have this tasty snack!

SUPER HEALTHY BREAKFAST!

by admin on / BLOG, FOOD

Goodmorning folks! With Las Vegas coming up quickly next week I’m doing my best to eat a bit more healthy as normal. Want to get my body in the best possible shape for the upcoming Las Vegas week as I know it demands a lot from you. 10 Years strong now and I know it needs some preparation to get the most out of it, otherwise, you’re in bed at 6 in the evening. This muesli breakfast and dried fruit is supercheap and you can store it for a while. I added some extra fresh fruit to spice it up a bit.

An extra kiwi and passionfruit to make it even more tasty! Enjoy peeps! Of to the gym now!

THE LAST BBQ!

by admin on / BLOG, FOOD

The last BBQ, of the year that is. It’s mid October and on some weird way (thanks global warming I guess) it still is 26 degrees during the day and 22 in the evening, even when the sun was down.

I knew that I had this little firepit laying around so this was the perfect excuse to fire it up! Coziness level 200! Hence the smell but all worth it.

As it’s dark at 7.30pm I needed some extra lightning, christmass lightning to the rescue! Worked pretty well to be honest.

And all of a sudden Margaux popped these out of her handbag! Kevin bought these last week and these were left-overs but this was the perfect time to take these in – ha! This brings back so many memories from when I was 18.

All I need is some christmas lightning, some closest friends and a proper piece of meat on the BBQ to be happy honestly.

No this is not a painting of ‘the last supper’ (het laatste avondmaal voor men Vlaamse lezers) but just us enjoying food.

I actually have no comment for this picture… I know it’s a weird one but too funny not to post!

Have a happy sunday everyone!

MADE FOR MEAT!

by admin on / BLOG, FOOD

This is starting to look like a food blog, I know but hey it’s my blog so I can write about what I want on my happy place. As you discovered already I’m a big meat fan. Kinda different in these vegan and vegetarian times as everything needs to be vegan and gluttenfree. (All respect for that by the way). I spotted these new sauces, specially for meat and as I have a little BBQ coming up, I’m trying these out!

This one is right in to my alley! Basicly, everything that has bacon in it is a winner for me.

And this combo is also a big yes for me! Paprika is always a good idea!

I was thinking for this one but as I love curry, I can only see this working with chicken (as in chicken curry) and as I had no chicken in my basket I passed on this one. (That’s a lot of ‘chicken’ right there)

[UPDATE] After trying them with the BBQ, the bacon jalapeno is my favourite! Works well with hamburgers and sausage and not spicy at all! The grilled paprika is more neutral, the ladies loved it.

ZOUTE GRAND PRIX!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS, FOOD, LIFESTYLE

Correct, these 3 (and the ladies) went to the annual Zoute Grand Prix in Knokke, Belgium. Basicly the Zoute Grand Prix is a roadrally that starts in the week and arrives over the weekend to the city of Knokke. Together with a collection of extremely rare and expensive cars this is the weekend and place to be when you’re in to cars, supercars and oldtimers. And it must be that this is what these 3 guys above connects.

These 4 are high on my ‘want-list’. The Ferrari 488, Porsche GT3RS, Mercedes GT AMG and this Audi R8, Limited edition with a V10 inside!

The Porsche 918, not a supercar but a hypercar! Those flashy green brake calipers make the car even look faster, don’t they?

A black Rolls Royce, that’s what makes my heart beat faster these days. We must thank @RDBLA for that by making the sickest Rolls Royces on the planet over in Los Angeles. At this point I’m debating with myself to sell the M4 and 7 series and source a Rolls, Ellen is probably going to kill me but I’m sure I can sleep on the backseat of a Rolls for sure!

And these 2 photo’s sum up pretty much why I like the Zoute Grand Prix happening. A great mix of old and new on 1 place. I actually took those 2 photos with 5 meter in between the 2 cars.

Gang gang gang! Quick pitstop to the Lucy Chang restaurant for a quick bite as we were all pretty tired! (and yes, Asian food again) Thanks for the great weekend guys!

This last photo must be in the blog as we can see Jim in his daily habitat. Pumping all the gas from the gas station like it’s nothing!
