the 8-th of March
Hello my friends,
Thanks for your comments and new questions!
Today is the 8-th of March. International holiday and a very popular day in Russia - the woman's day. All men prepare flowers and presents for their mums, sisters, wifes, girlfriends, colleagues and other. Women are in a very good mood:) The day is warm and sunny today. That is a real present for me.
Thanks God. Actually, I do not like the 8-th of March so much. I like be a woman and feel like a woman every day. But it depends on a men :)
Hope my blog's female friends have just intellegent men around :)
Today is the day off because of this celebration and I have some guests at home. Spending time fun. Eat and tell interesting stories to each other.
It was a question about Russian food. Well, the Russian cousine is very tasty. People in Russia do not like microwave food at all. Except maybe pizza. And use microwave just to warm food (not sure it is a correct phrase "warm food").
Most families prefer fresh dishes every day.We like meat, fish, mushrooms, vegetables and love soups. Actually, I have difficulty to explain to you about Russian cousine because sure you should try to eat. It is impossible to write about a taste and a smell of "borsh" - Russian soup of red colour with meat and vegetables or "pelmeni" - a tiny piece of bread with meat inside. We do not have Russian fast food. This type of food came to us from Europe. These days you might watch fast food on the streets in Moscow. But shops offer traditionaly hot dogs or some sandwiches which are not type of Russian cousine.The last 14 years McDonald's is popular for children who like "happy meal" with toys and students who haven't a lot of free time for cooking.
About difference between England and Russian food (I saw a question about difference of our cousines).First of all as I wrote above we do not love microwave food.In the morning people eat bread, ham, cheese, yogurts, boiled or fry eggs. Some people prefer eat food like sausages. For lunch soups and hot dishes with garnish. And for dinner again hot dishes and variety of cold snacks.
People do not prefer all boiled food or only fried. We mix all types. But in Russia people like eat only tasty food. but on the other hand - tasty food is dangerous for women;)
These days many healthy diets are very popular here but this is another story...:) Russian people are friendly and hospitality. Usually people like invite friends home and cook for them home made dishes. It could be about 5-7 cold snacks, 2-3 for main course and 3-4 desserts.
So, we like eat but be in fit!!!:)
Hope you find my report interesting and will write again tomorrow!
With best wishes,
