MC Kitchenette – Summer week


I know that this is technically even less of a food-category then breakfast but bare with us on this one. I think it is pretty safe to assume that 2020 hasn’t been the greatest year until now for all of us, but now summer has finally come and maybe we can finally take a small break from all of this madness.

(After checking the weather for Slovenia and seeing pretty much only rain for the next week I realized that I spoke too soon, but its the spirit that counts right?……… right?)

Hello and welcome to our weekly cooking event where Noémie, Yegor, Lynn and Moritz from MC will all cook a dish from a certain category.

This weeks topic will be Summer-Food and drinks.

From Drinking Aperol Spritz on the seaside to drinking a cold beer on a particularly warm evening to drinking sangria on the beach, There are clearly countless possibilities to have fun in the summer. I realize that all of the ideas mentioned have to do with alcohol but I stand by it – sue me.

But truly I think it is time for us all to get a bit of a breather.

And even if you don’t want to take a breather, maybe you can just spice up your life a little bit.

What about a cold Spanish chili soup, just perfect to be consumed while you’re in the frontline of a ‘black life matter’ protest.

Or what about a nice cool lemonade or a smoothie while you sit alone in your garden because you follow social distancing, or finally what about a nice cocktail to drink while you wait for the end of the world, or maybe just the end of America. (Although  some Americans would probably argue that those two are interchangeable)

But all jokes aside I think sometimes it is necessary to take a step back and to take some time out of your day and just simply relax. Put away your phone with the news, put away your maddening thoughts and concentrate on maybe doing a nice cocktail, or a sweet snack, or even a nice dinner.

There are so many catastrophes going on right now and it is hard to choose one to concentrate on, but maybe catching a temporary breather can help.

So, maybe make a nice soup and drink it outside (possibly in the rain, is what my weather app is telling me), or have yourselves a little cocktail evening, if the social distancing laws allow it of course.

And then after, go back to caring about 20 humanitarian catastrophes at the same time, but now with replenished energy.

Enjoy your time out and talk to you next week.

Your Team Litija.
