Good Eats


I'm not really succeeding in learning my way around Slovenian cooking. I mean I can slice and dice a potato and know a few ways to work a mushroom but I haven't figured out all those special skuta-related concoctions yet and I am still trying to perfect my golaž. Nonetheless, I am, however, doing well on my good old standby catch-all international kitchen and everyone who comes over to eat seems to be enjoying what I serve up.

I recently had to translate this recipe for pumpkin squares for The Captain's mother. I just came across and thought it might be a fun little thing to throw up here for all the Slovene readers. It's not exactly pumpkin weather anymore but if you find any lying around, grab it and bring it home for this yumminess. I translated most of the recipe myself and the captain came in to fix all the terrible grammatical errors. If you notice anything else. Lemme know!

"0,5 čž litra bučkinega pireja" this sounds a bit troublesome to me, it is made from zucchini and yet it comes in liters and little spoons???
