Fish soup Sunday dinner

I invited mum and my little sister round last Sunday for lunch. My dear friend Nana gave me a recipe for a fish soup last autumn and it's become a favourite. Together with the youghurt bread I've baked before it turned out quite a feast.
Ingredients for le soup:
1 leek
4-5 carrots
8dl water
2 cubes of fish stock
1 tub of Creme Bonjour cheese (Garlic)
0,5-1dl creme
5-7 pieces of cod (Alaska pollock pieces work great)
4dl shrimps (peeled)
Lemon pepper and cayenne pepper
How to:
Chop your leek finely. Peel your carrots and grate them roughly. Put in a saucepan with the water and let boil for 25 minutes.
Add the fish stock cubes and the fish after 25 minuter and boil for another 10 minutes.
Add your Creme Bonjour and creme after your own liking and turn down heat to simmer.
Season with lemon pepper and cayenne pepper, taste!
Add your shrimps right at the end to warm through.
Serve straight away with a nice full-grain bread and cheese.

Bisto gravy beef burgers and mash

Hello you! Long time no see, huh? I know. It's been a problem with the Internet and it is not yet solved (Monday hopefully!). Luckily this hasn't stopped me from cooking and I have managed despite my miniture kitchen.
Gravy is something English and not common in the Swedish kitchen, but mark my words - you're missing out. It's not creamy like the sauce we have with our meatballs in Sweden, and it's not watery either. If you add a few teaspoons of Bisto gravy powder you get this 'laaaavly' gravy. 
I mixed together beef mince, 1 small chopped onion, 1 egg, a few shakes of breadcrumbs, salt and pepper and formed burgers. I fried them in a little bit of oil and added a bit of hot water. I mixed a few teaspoons of Bisto in cold water and stirred it down into the pan and brought it to the boil. Add sliced onion to your sauce and let simmer.
Serve with mashed potatoes and any kind of vegetables!

Italian meatballs

Woah. Yep, that's what I thought yesterday when I managed to whip up a fab meal in just an hour before I went to work. I had defrosted mince to create a masterpiece with and I miscalculated time a little so I was running round the kitchen trying to cook something I'd never done before - Italian meatballs in tomato sauce with spaghetti. The result was lovely, believe it or not! Forgot my camera in my flat though so I only have a picture on my phone. I'll be re-creating this dish and showing you a different time. Just thought I'd let you know I'm not starving myself just because there are no posts here...
Standby. I'm moving out in a few days!

Chicken - backpacker style

That feta cheese in my sauce does not take a good picture..

HEY GUYS! I was so hungry earlier that I thought I was going to collapse. I remembered a "recipe" Julia and I used when we went backpacking in Australia last year. Quick and easy and all I did was add chicken and a few other fun things from the fridge.
You need:
3 fillets of chicken
125g feta cheese
1 yellow onion
150g bacon
2,5dl creme fraiché
Black pepper and paprika powder
Fresh pasta
How to:
Chop your onion finely. Fry in oil in a pan on medium heat.
Chop your bacon and mushrooms roughly and add to your pan. Season with black pepper.
When the bacon has a good colour, pour into a seperate bowl.
Fry your chicken in pieces chopped to the size you want. Season with paprika powder.
Bring water to the boil for your pasta when your chicken is sizzling in the pan.
When your chicken is cooked through, add your bacon mixture to the pan again.
Start boiling your pasta at this point (the fresh pasta I used only takes 2,5 minutes).
Crumble your feta cheese over your chicken, add your creme fraiché and stir - turn the heat down.
Serve straight away when the pasta is done!
