  1. Bulky waste disposal

    Put it on eBay Kleinanzeigen and list it for free. You will have it gone in hours. You can try to sell, but it seems you want to throw it out. I got rid of an old bed frame, a mattress, and sheets for that bed within two hours on eBay Kleinanzeigen. Apparently it’s a big business in Eastern Europe or something. 
  2. English-speaking dentists in Munich

      Yeah, no. A dentist shouldn’t make you cry and tell you how bad your teeth are; she was not understanding at all. And they aren’t bad. I brush them like I should. Some people just have it in their genes. The dentist I go to now makes me feel good and said they really aren’t that bad.   And if a dentist refuses treatment, do you really think any problems will get better? That’s like someone being diagnosed with an illness and being told go home and come back when you are better. I wouldn’t want to be told that by a doctor! I would have been really upset at my last mammo if I was told, oh you have a lump (which I did) and then they refused to check it out and told me come back if it gets worse. Sorry, but no. It’s their job to help people. 
  3. stairwell terror

    Exercising on the stairs is strange. If you need special exercises for steps, then buy one of those step things they use at gyms. Then you can use it in your own space.    5.30 in the morning?! That doesn’t fit in with noise ordinances. I’d be angry if someone was outside my door making noise early in the morning, too. I wouldn’t film you, but I’d probably go to my landlord to complain about you.

      This dentist is great! He now has his own practice on Rezidenzstrasse. He took over Dr. Wood’s practice. His English is perfect. He makes you feel extremely comfortable. I do not have the best teeth thanks to genetics. I have had two other dentists in Germany make me cry in the chair telling me how horrible my teeth were (one of them is the toothbrush salesperson). I think the only thing good about the toothbrush salesperson is that the toothbrush is pretty good (yes, I bought one and it has helped my gums). But she also said that she refused to help me because my gums were in such bad shape. Uh, that’s why I’m at the dentist. And yes I brush and floss 2-3 times a day.    He will fight for you through insurance to make sure you get the best value for your money. I highly recommend Marinescu. 
  5. What are you cooking today?

    I made rigatoni with eggplant purée on Friday. Was really good!   https://smittenkitchen.com/2008/01/rigatoni-with-eggplant-puree/    I was very busy this weekend. Today I made a big lunch for BF and I.    I made two batches of no-knead bread (one regular, and one roasted garlic). It’s a NY Times recipe.    Then I got up early today and made a creamy cucumber salad, egg salad with homemade mayo, and a chick pea, sweet potato, spinach soup in the crock pot (Skinnytaste). I will have leftovers for days.  
  6. English speaking hairdresser in Munich

    Damier at Loitfelder on Balanstraße. He does a fantastic job and he can color well, too. 
  7. What are you cooking today?

    I made Swedish meatball burgers.    Mixed some ground beef with some onions, breadcrumbs, milk, allspice, and salt and pepper. Formed them in some patties. I fried up the burgers and let them rest. I then fried up some mushrooms (in the same pan) with butter. I added some cream to this sauce and let it get thickened. Put the burgers on buns with some lingonberry jam and the mushroom cream sauce. It was great. 
  8.   Yes, you can dare! I’m really happy about it actually. No more German paperwork for my divorce. The court was quite strange, though. It was a desk in the Gericht. It was like a meeting. I totally expected something else. I had an interpreter. Even though my German is good, I wanted to make sure I understood everything with the whole legal language. It was a bit distracting to hear her in English and then the lawyers and judge talking in German. But it’s done now! So yes, congrats is in order!
  9. I had no problems this morning. I had to get to court for my divorce (finalized, yay!) and I was worried all night about how I was going to get into the city. I tried calling for a taxi this morning and I couldn’t get one. So I decided that I would take my chances with the bus and Sbahn. The bus was there in time and I got an Sbahn from there. I got there an hour early and I had given myself 2 hours to get there. Getting back before 14.30 was also no problem for me. I guess I got lucky.

      May I ask where you get your ground turkey? I rarely see it in the supermarket, and I sold my Fleischwolf because I never used it. Do you think this would work with ground pork?
  11. What are you cooking today?

    Last night I did steak, with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. It was a Hello Fresh meal, but I changed it up.    I quarter my potatoes and put them in a pot of boiling water. I didn’t bother peeling because I use a potato ricer, so the peel doesn’t go through that. Used the ricer and mixed with butter and milk. I usually like to add mayo to my mashed (secret family recipe) and of course added salt and pepper.    I peeled and roasted my carrots in the oven with salt, pepper, and olive oil.    I sautéed some mushrooms and an onion for a few minutes over medium heat. I added a clove of garlic for the last minute. Took them out and put that to the side.    Got my steaks (Rump) ready with salt and pepper and they were room temperature, so that’s perfect for cooking. Seared them with butter at medium high in the same pan to make them medium rare. Took them out to let them rest.    Added mushroom mix back to pan and deglazed with a cup of beef broth. Added some mustard. Let that cook up and thicken. Then I added some mustard (1 Tbsp?) and let it cook up a bit. While that was cooking, I sliced up my rested beef and left that to the side.    I got the mushroom mix boiling to thicken more and added some milk, butter, and parsley. When it was thickened, I added the meat slices for a minute to absorb the flavor. I didn’t want the meat to get past medium. YMMV, and you may like it a bit more cooked.    Served with sides and all was good!    It’s a Hello Fresh recipe, but I changed it around a bit. They have really good quality meat there. I think the price is reasonable for what you get. But you have to be savvy on what dishes to pick to get the most value. If anyone wants a box, I have a few boxes in my account to send as a gift. PM me. I’m not sure how that works exactly.

    I made veggie fajitas with a peri peri chili sauce topped with a sour cream sauce with lime and coriander. It was a Hello Fresh meal.

    I was a bit boring tonight. I didn’t have much time, so I did a quick Hello Fresh meal. They have been offering these extra add-ons and I decided to give it a try. I don’t think it was worth the money, but it did taste nice.    I took some Ciabatta bread and cut that in half horizontally. I mixed up some cheddar cheese, butter, 5 cloves of garlic, spring onions, and Parmesan cheese. I melted it a bit in the microwave to make it easier to spread on the bread.    Put in oven at 200 (convection) and cooked until toasted, melted, and warm. I served it with a sour cream and spring onion dip.

        How do you spice the salmon? This sounds great!
  15. What are you cooking today?

        My mom does not, but my grandma made it a bit. Usually the meatballs were in the Sunday sauce with Bracciole and served with pasta.
