Travelling in time

It is possible, I believe so! We are seldom in the present, our thoughts are always in the past or in the future, we do miss what is actually happening right now, we loose control as we drift away of yesterdays troubles or anxious thoughts that belong to the future. Somehow I have experienced a certain time travelling, it has not been like travelling far away in some kind of machine it’s just that certain places have certain energy and people that have brought together people with similar thoughts/longings.

Travelling back to the 70’s was one of my best experiences, the night began with having beers at a russian inspired bar witha  touch of “communistic” art/pictures at KGB (Malmskillnadsgatan) the dj only played russian tecno music with a little balkan music too… As we (Sandra, Jenny, Aliro and Mimmi) went to the SOUL-club at FASCHING (the best place where you can listen to jazz) we were first in the line and stood there for 30 minutes, it was -5°C and we actually didn’t think they would let us in because we were underage… I stood there with my id-card just longing to get in there and dance, I guess the “guards” felt sorry for us for standing in the cold so long/wanted to make money so they let us in. At that moment I thought I was the happiest person in that house.

I have always said that I was born in the wrong decade, I wanted to be 20ish in the 60’s & 70’s so I could rock my afro and wear paisley patterned flared trousers!! I was disappointed at the music played in the clubs of today and just wished to travel in a time machine and experience something great…

In the club there were beardy men with long hair, guys with tattoes and band t-shirts, girls with long and short hair, everybody was so happy and we danced to this! People who wanted to go back to that time were there! They felt the vibe! I couldn’t stop smiling as I danced, I felt high! I was there, present! It felt like a dream! I had travelled in time!

Creamy Caprese Pasta

Creamy Caprese Pasta

serves 4-6

1 pound whole wheat pasta (noodles such as penne work best)

1 cup of your favorite pasta/tomato sauce

1/3 cup heavy cream or half and half

1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese + more for garnish

4 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes

1 pint of grape tomatoes (I cut some in half and left some whole)

1 bunch of fresh basil leaves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Boil water and cook pasta according to directions.

While pasta is cooking, heat tomato sauce over low heat in a large saucepan. Once warm, stir in heavy cream and grated parmesan. Once pasta is done cooking, drain and dump into the sauce, mixing to coat and turning off heat. Fold in mozzarella cubes and tomatoes, then chop 3-4 fresh basil leaves and add them in too. Once combined, spray a baking dish with non-stick spray and pour the entire pasta mixture into the dish. Top with fresh mozzarella rounds. Bake for 25 minutes, or until cheese is golden and bubbly.

Top with additional fresh basil and grated cheese. Serve with garlic bread. You can also add in chicken, steak or seafood for some protein.
