Gnocchi with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Gnocchi’s are a sort for pasta for potato lovers. They are small Italian dumplings made from potatoes, flour[all purpose flour, buck wheat flour], egg and shaped into small ovals with ridged pattern on one side. Alternatively they can also be made from semolina flour[info source:BBC].  Gnocchi is eaten as an alternative to soup or salad. They are usually home-made in Italian households. But they are also available in packets in supermarkets. I have made store bought Potato Gnocchi and accompanied with fresh tomato sauce, but it can also accompanied with freshly prepared Pesto Sauce as well as various other sauces.

Fish Cutlets/Fish Patties/Fish Cakes

We are always looking to make some snacks for the kids especially after school. To satisfy their taste buds and give them something interesting is always a challenge. Today I was running out of many groceries in my kitchen and was really lazy to go shopping. It is really cold and windy, most of the days I just don’t want to step out of the door.

This is my first time using tuna fish from a can, I never buy canned fish. But I have so many friends using canned tuna, so I just wanted to try it once. We all liked it a lot, it was awesome.
