Because it’s that time of the year, I recently remembered this recipe my grandmother used to make when I was little. It is called “Winter Salad” and I’ll translate it for you here.

Ingredients:

3-4 kilos of peppers

2 kilos of green tomatoes

2 kilos of onions

2 kilos of carrots

For the sauce:

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of oil

1 cup of vinegar

pepper

1 spoon of salt

bay leafs

allspice

You need to cut all the vegetables and grate the carrots. Add one spoon of salt. All this needs to be downcast in the sauce I told you about before.

Then it has to be stuffed in jars.

A fresh sauce will be poured on top.

And that’s all ūüėÄ

It tastes amazing and can be eaten with anything! Enjoy!

Balada chiriasului grabit, de George Toparceanu

Trec anii, trec lunile-n goana
Si-n zbor saptam√Ęnile trec.
Ram√Ęi sanatoasa, cucoana,
Ca-mi iau geamantanul si plec!

Eu nu stiu limanul spre care
Pornesc cu bagajul acum,
Ce demon ma pune-n miscare,
Ce taina ma-ndeamna la drum.

Dar simt ca m-apasa peretii,
Eu sunt chirias trecator:
În scurtul popas al vietii
Vreau multe schimbari de decor.

Am stat la mansarda o luna.
De-acolo, de sus, de la geam,
Si ziua si noaptea pe luna
Priveam ca la teatru, madam!
C√Ęnd luna-mi venea la fereastra,
Orasul parea ca ma cheama
Sa-i vad √ģn lumina albastra
Fantastica lui panorama…
Mai sus, √ģntr-o camera mica,
Faceau √ģmpreuna menaj
Un mos, un actor si-o pisica.
Iar dincolo, jos, la etaj,
O dama cu vizite multe
Si-alaturi de ea un burlac,
Un demon serios de la Culte
Cu cioc si cu ghete de lac.
De-acolo, pe-o vreme ploioasa,
Mi-am pus geamantanu-n tramvai
Si-abia am ajuns p√Ęn-acasa:
Pe Berzei, la conu Mihai.

Tin minte si-acuma gradina,
Ferestrele unse cu var…
În fata sta coana Irina
Si-n curte, un fost arhivar.
Vedeai rasarind laolalta,
Un colt luminos de ietac,
Pridvorul cu iedera ‚Äėnalta
Si flori z√Ęmbitoare-n cerdac‚Ķ
Pe-atunci √ģnflorea liliacul
Si noaptea cadea parfumata
Umpl√Ęnd de miresme cerdacul,
Si-avea arhivarul o fata…
Stam ceasuri √ģntregi sub umbrarul
De flori, astept√Ęnd neclintit
(C-avea obicei arhivarul
Sa sforaie noaptea cumplit).
T√Ęrziu, c√Ęnd se da la o parte
Perdeaua, parea ca visez…
Si iar am plecat mai departe,
De teama sa nu ma fixez.

Straine privelisti fugare!
Voi nu stiti ca-n inima port
O dulce mireasma de floare,
Parfumul trecutului mort…

Si-am stat la un unchi, pe Romana,
Tiu minte… dar unde n-am stat?
La domnul Manuc, o persoana
Cu nasul putin coroiat;
La doamna Mary, pe Regala
(O, cum ma ruga sa nu plec!
Mi-a scris chiar o carte postala);
Pe strada Unirii la Sbeck;
Pe Grant, l√Ęnga birtul lui Sbierea;
Pe Witing, pe Tei la Confort,
M-a dus pretutindeni puterea
Aceluiasi tainic resort.

C-asa mi-e viata ‚Äď o goana,
Si astfel durerile trec…
Ram√Ęi sanatoasa, cucoana,
Ca-mi iau geamantanul si plec!

Tavi Gavinson(18), is a writer, magazine editor, singer and actress. She came to public attention at the age of 12, when she started her fashion blog Style Rookie. Tavi is the founder of the online Rookie Magazine and she was named by Time magazine one of ”The Most Influential Teens of 2014”.

I first saw Tavi 6 years ago when I accidentally came across her fashion blog, The Style Rookie. Back then, when there was not such thing as fashion bloggers, she was my inspiration and an example of commitment and perseverance. Good luck, Tavi!
