Foodporn - Rice pasta recipe

Waaait, if you opened this post thinking it was an outfit post, that means that it's now the time to admit my third real passion (after music and fashion), food!! :D So if it's not your passion too.. I don't know, I guess it's impossible to not be in love with food.

I'm not a professional chef but I just wanted to share this recipe, seen on the internet and then made it became more personal, and for 2! We can simply call it "rice spaghetti with veggies, chicken and soybean sprouts"! Maybe too long haha but the recipe it's pretty short:

1 - Cut your favourite veggies in thin slices ("à julienne"), like I did in the photo! I prefered to add just zucchini (one half zucchini) and carrots (one half carrot)!
Put some olive oil on a pan and fry the veggies, but not too much.. add some salt, let them be a bit crispy. After that, put all in a plate and we'll think of them later!

2 - Now cut and put on the same pan (adding a bit of oil again) half chicken breast

3 - The less asian part of the recipe is putting some white wine on the chicken breast after it became of that great golden color! This wine here it's really a random one, 1 euro at the supermarket haha 
You need the wine to have that kind of "gnammy" sauce! So when the alcool of the wine evaporates, you're ready to turn off everything. 

4 - After you prepared everything to put on the pasta.. I guess it's time to think of your pasta! :D
Rice pasta was so good, I adore it and it's way better than the normal one. It says it takes 5 minutes, but I realized it needed less than 5 minutes, so just stay close to it and pay attention. 

5- AAAND now, if it doesn't suck that much, re-take the pan and put on your veggies, some soybean sprouts, the chicken and obviously the pasta. Call me fat, but I added some olive oil again because I like it and because it's easy to get a massive ball of rice pasta! 

Hope it wasn't too boring!! I really had fun taking photos and writing this post.. let me know if you decide to cook it (do it!) and let me know if you liked it :)

Dream within a dream

I love ugly photos

As you can see, my brother loves taking photos when I'm in strange positions with my legs and also taking profile photos, you may notice my nose who just wanted to participate haha
I had to take some photos before my brother leaves (he'll return in Italy now), and one of the recent purchases I own at the moment is this pretty and delicate thrifted skirt.. THAT'S what I was talking about months ago! You know, cute things doesn't really have to cost too much, that's something that most of the girls in Italy have to learn. This skirt was 3 euros and it was originally a midi skirt, but I prefered to cut it as a mini skirt, so that I could wear it in winter too with some tights on!
So the 1st september I'm moving to a new apartment (soooo pretty, but just for a month), and then I'll look for something to have for a longer time, I guess a room with others. But this home where I live now has a great kitchen and I want to try something before I move to the other one.. "rice spaghetti with veggies and chicken"! Doesn't it sound nice? :D I recently fell in love with asians recipes.. I may write a recipe-post about it, it would be funny (but just if it turns out well haha). 

I like to call my hair "leaf-hair", and I guess that's pretty appropriate for the season!
