I like to share this with all seafood lovers! This recipe is something I came up with myself. I just simply love seafood, and I tried to improvise the other day and this was the result:
For 2 portions you need:
3-4 cloves Garlic
6 tomatoes (you can get the 64p pack at Sainsbury´s)
1 packet of Seafood mix (3.99 at Sainsbury´s, sometimes you
can buy one and get one free)
6-7 tablespoons of Olive oil
Spaghetti or tagliattelle (depends on how much you want)
-Put the spaghetti/tagliatelle to boil.
Chop the onion and garlic in small pieces. Chop the tomatoes into small small pieces.
-Heat up the olive oil in either a wok pan or a large frying pan. Fry the onion and garlic until it gets golden brown. Then put in the tomatoes and cook it while you put in the salt (2 1/2 teaspoon)Remember to taste it so it doesn´t get too salty, pepper (1/2 teaspoon), oregano (1 teaspoon) and thyme (1 teaspoon).
-Drain the spaghetti/tagliattelle and chuck it into the wok pan with the tomato sauce. Fry it for 2 minutes and season it (put more salt if it doesn´t taste that much).
Then put in the seafood mix and fry for 2 minutes. Season it for the last time, and then it´s ready to serve.
I absolutely recommend this recipe as it is easy to prepare and good! Bon Appetit!
The Roskilde Festival is the biggest festival in Northern Europe. It usually takes place in the last week of June (Monday-Sunday)in a small town called Roskilde which takes 1/2 hour-45 minutes with train from Copenhagen.
If you love live music, chillin', camping, Scandinavians and not afraid of getting dirty, then this is an ideal festival for you.
More than 75000 people enjoy this marvellous non-profit festival each year. Yup, you heard right, non profit. All profit is donated to charity. Isn't that great?
I have been a loyal festival-participant since 2001 and I enjoy it every single year. Unfortunately, last year had to be cancelled due to a economical problems, however, I can't wait to Summer 2006.
The festival actually starts from the moment you arrive Copenhagen's main railway station where you can see all the festival-people full of expectations with their huge backpacks and tents ready for a 7-8 days with fun fun fun.
The festival is divided into many areas, but the main festival area is separated from the camping area.Talking from experience, you should arrive at the festival early (early on the day they open) as it is almost impossible to get a tent-space after a couple of days, and you will end up with 1/2 hr walking from your tent to the festival-area.
Life at the Camping-area:
After setting up your tent, you can now start a 4 day-reckless-nonstop-party with your neighbours (they are very friendly when you invite them over for drinks). OR you can just relax and explore the camping area. It has got many facilities such as places where you can barbecue, wash your clothes, charge your mobile and also foodstands, drinkstands and snackstands. Other facilities include outdoor cinema (NB: should buy a festival-chair) where I watched Chicago and the world-cup final in football -very nice indeed, indoor cinema (I couldn't be bothered) and of course toilets and showers. Now, it costs money to take showers, so many people will only have a shower once or twice during the whole festival, so beware of stinking people.
As there are too many people, and too few toilets and food & beverage stands, the queues are enormous. So, an advice is to go to the toilet either early in the morning or late at night, or go 15 minutes before you know you have to go. As for the food, you should go and stand in the queue when you are starting to get hungry. At the end of this festival, you will get used to all this.
Life at the festival-area:
This area doesn't open before Thursday, and it stays open until Sunday. Once the gates open, the concerts starts. You will get a list of when and where the bands and artists are playing so you can make up your own schedule to fit all your favourites. It's amazing how many people there are, and especially in front of all the stages. Great bands and artists such as Erykah Badu, Santana, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Placebo, Duran Duran, Green Day and Garbage have played at this festival. The live music fills your whole body and when it's sunny, you can relax on the grass and listen to the concert or you can stand right in front of the stage and jump with the other fans.
There are also other things you can do at the festival, and many go shopping (clothrs, accessories, cds..), chillin', get autographs from artists who wander around the area and some create art. There are also shows and events too, but I found this quite boring. I would rather go to concerts or chill on the grass.
If you are lucky (lovely memories from 2001), you will get nice weather for 4-5 days, but sometimes, it can be too hot, and your tent will turn into a sauna. Do not panic, just open the tent and breathe in the fresh air.
If you are unlucky (this was hell, 2004), it will rain all the days and the mud will reach to your knees.
Please do everyone a favour and pack wisely. It is essential to bring with you a raincoat, a pair of wellingtons and sweaters. You could include some of your summerclothes too.
Ok, so you can buy all this here, but imagine when it starts raining (I'm not talking about a little bit of rain, this is heavy rain with a lot of wind) and everyone is going to buy a raincoat and a pair of wellingtons... I would not recommend this to anyone so please make sure you bring it with you, then you've got at least one problem less to think about.
All in all, this festival is so good, and it tends to get better and better every year.
So if you want to experience something different next summer, this is an absolutely MUST.
