>Oua de Pasti à la Bruxelles

>

(EN) For Easter, I cooked nor “cozonaci” (sweet bread similar to the Italian Panetone) or “sarmale” (wrapped minced meat with rice and some vegetables). “Beuf salad” or “drob” (other traditional Romanian dishes for Easter), I didn’t even think about them! But I DID paint Easter eggs that I decorated with passion, putting all my personal artistic touch on at least 12 of them.

 We met at Stef ‘s who prepared a superb Romanian meal. Although in Brussels you can usually find mostly traditional Polish, Turkish or Chinese shops, Stef has managed to find some Romanian food. Therefore she delighted us with “telemea” of sheep and cow (similar to the Irish cheese), pastrama (smoked ham) and other smoked goodies from home.

The egg painting was a great experience that immersed us in the bawl filled with creativity. Along with Carmen and Cristina, I explored several types of egg painting styles: the naive painting (Carmen), detail-oriented and refined touch similar to Gaudi’style (Cristina) and the incomprehensible modernism (myself). Stef was obviously our Romanian host, who kept serving us and continuously inviting us to taste some more. The evening was great! The kitty ate “pastrama” and played while we said jokes and painted loads of eggs. 

Below find some photos that illustrate our creativity.

(RO) De Pasti, nu am facut cozonaci si nici sarmale. Salata beuf sau drob, nici atat. Insa am vopsit cu drag oua, dupa care le-am decorat cu pasiune, punandu-mi amprenta pe cel putin 12. 
Ne-am intalnit la Stef, care a pregatit o superba masa romaneasca. Desi in inima Bruxelles-ului, unde de obicei gasesti magazine poloneze, turcesti, chinezesti dar nu romanesti, Stef a reusit sa ne puna pe masa telemea de oaie si de vaca, pastrama si alte bunataturi afumate de pe la noi. 

Alaturi de Carmen si Cristina, am explorat pictura naiva pe oua(Carmen), detaliile rafinate in stil Gaudi (Cristina) si modernismul neinteles (eu). Stef a fost evident gazda noastra romaneasca, ce nu mai prididea sa ne serveasca si cu de-aia si cu de-aialalta. Mâtzul a mancat pastrama si s-a jucat, iar noi multe oua de vopsit am gatat. 
Mai jos, cateva poze ce ilustreza creativitatea din noi.

Recunosc, am fost foarte prolifica
Eu si Cristina, concentrate … in focurile creatiei
