You know that, you put pasta on the menu for a day, and afterwards it turns out you made way too much again. Or with the summer approaching you feel the need for barbecue coming up, but you want to serve something different than the regular cold potato dish with it. Then I have a nice recipe here that I have been using for several years to avoid pasta leftovers and brighten up barbecues.


250gr pasta
1 bunch of spring onion
1 box of cherry tomatoes
1 pack of mini mozzarella
3 eggs
0.5 or 1 (sweet) paprika (depending on size)
1 ripe avocado


The preparation is actually very simple. Cook the pasta until cooked as directed on the package. Preferably use penne or spirelli, but also with macaroni this recipe can succeed. In the meantime, also cook the eggs until they are hard-boiled. I usually do about 12 minutes myself. Drain the pasta after the desired cooking time and allow to cool. The same with the eggs.

A trick to cool eggs faster is to put them in cold water, so the heat goes out faster. You can also get the pasta cold faster by rinsing them with cold water.

When the eggs and pasta are cooled enough, you just need to cut the other ingredients. Cut the cherry tomatoes through 2 or through 4, the same with the mozzarella balls and the eggs. Cut the peppers and avocado into cubes. Finally, cut the bunch of spring onion nicely into small rings. This is allowed to go beyond the green color, because that too is edible. Mix all the ingredients together in a large jar and season with pepper and a pinch of salt.

Personally I usually add yogorette dressing, which really completes the whole thing in my opinion. But whether or not you already include it is of your choice.

Extras and variants

If you want to make this salad a real meal salad, add some raw ham into pieces and mix it through the salad. The salty touch combines well with the soft taste of mozzarella and tomato. If you want to go all the way south, add some oregano and basil.

Would you rather stay vegetarian? Then add pine nuts and/or cashews. These will ensure that the salad will also become slightly fuller. And because there are already mozzarella and eggs in it, you also get a good amount of proteins and fats to keep your energy level up and get through the day.

You can also replace the paste with Ebly as variation (another thing that I always dose:p)

On this dish, numerous variations are possible, so do not let yourself be stopped and experiment on it.

The survival of every day - tip 1
The first tip for the survival of every day is: dare to dream. The harsh reality of every day and the challenges it entails can make you lose your courage. Sometimes other people make our lives miserable; they laugh about your ambitions or warn you of disappointments. 'Dreams are cheating, 'they say. It can make you cynical, but don't fall for that trap! Tell me honestly, do you dare to dream? “Everyone dreams, but not everyone has the same dream. Whoever dreams at night, in the dusty pits of his head, wakes up to discover that that dream meant nothing. Those who dream during the day are dangerous, because they can pursue their dream with their eyes open, to make it come true.” - T.E. Lawrence - You have different kinds of dreams. They can be pure fantasy or very powerful in our reality; your life! Dreams that are not about anything or that inspire us. My encouragement is: go for the second kind. It's the art of dreaming the “dangerous dreams” of daytime. Think big. Think what makes you happy or happy. What if you never had to work again? What does your heart beat faster? What can be so real no longer? It helps me at least once a year to withdraw myself to a quiet place for 1 or 2 days and be busy with these questions. What do I dream of? Where do I want to be in 5 years? Someone once told me: “You overestimate what you can do in a year, but underestimate what you can do in five years.” That helps me not to dream too small, but at the same time be patient. So: write down your dream. Remind yourself, hang it somewhere where you see it every day. Share it with others, and let them remind you. Or share it in the comments below; what is your dream? #survival #tips The tips come from survival expert Bear Grills; the world's best-known survival expert, complemented by my own experiences.
Unicorns of clay and moons of wool
Do you like unicorns and want to be busy with clay, paint and wool? Then make a cheerful unicorn of clay, paint it with fun colors and gold or silver glitter glue and give the cheerful colored woolly mane! In this complete package you will find everything you need. It contains beautiful (air-drying) white clay, a unicorn clay shape, 6 colors of paint, a handy brush, and 5 colors of wool. With this you can immediately get started and you can make 4 unicorns. How to paint and decorate them, you can know all by yourself. I'm glad you're allowed to let go of your own imagination, so...! The mold is then just usable to make (with your own clay/salt dough) a whole herd of unicorns, which is also super! Put a layer of clay in the cutter and make holes for the mane with the back of the brush. Carefully remove the mold and make your next unicorn shape. So you can make 4. Then let it dry until the clay has hardened. With the 6 colors of paint (which is in handy little jars) you decorate your unicorn until it is completely to your liking. With the Crayola glitter glue (in silver and in gold) you make fun dots, stripes or hearts, cool! Also the paint and the glitter paint should dry for a while, but after that you can give the unicorn beautiful colourful long mane! With the help of a satepriker you push the woolen threads through the holes. Fasten the wool by putting a (double) button in it.  Have they not become darlings? We as unicorn fans love them and they get a nice spot in the bedroom! Clamping Unicorns! Tip: If you glue a clothespin behind it (e.g.. Collall slime) and let it dry for a while, then you can clamp the unicorns anywhere you want! For example, at the mirror, your dressing table, above your desk, at your desk lamp, etc.!
