Today we went sailing with some good friends. It was not one of those perfect blue sky weather days. We had everything. Blue sky, dark sky, nice white clouds, summer rain, no wind, a lot of wind. I loved it. Isn't it like a metafor for life? We all have our sunny days and rainy days. Without the dark clouds we can't appreciate the blue sky.


I took some picnic food with me to eat on the boat. Some colorful chicken lollipops. Perfect for a summer day out.


ca 500g chicken breast
1-2 zucchini
1-2 garlic cloves
handful basil

With vegetable peeler cut long strips of the zucchini. Put the zucchini strips into cold water for couple of minutes. Drain the slices.

Cut the chicken breast into long strips. Add pressed garlic, salt and pepper. Fry the strips over medium heat until golden brown.

Put the zucchini slice and basil on the fried chicken and roll everything together. Pin it together with a toothpick (or something nicer :)).
