Consultants can _do_ everything with powerpoint *slides*. Most of those​ douchebag monkeyass newbies in life and the universe could also prepare another set of freaking powerpoint slides for me on the topic: how can human kind achieve the much needed same respect for every form of life, i.e. women, men, transgenders, animals, artificial intelligence, aliens, the environment (not only the planet Earth but yeah right the whole effing universe and all the parallel universes).

Epic battle
In the end it all boils down to the same two fucking questions​: who got bigger balls and whose dick is longer.
In other, more consultant-and-gender-neutral words: we need to understand our market position and compare our lever with the one of our negotiation partner.

Good or bad. Your choice.
In serendipity we trust.

Steak pie and not-really-mushy peas

Inspirational video from Jamie Oliver, some internet research and some given spices and cheese leftovers got me to this variant.

  2. 300 g rump steak
  3. 4 carrots
  4. 200 g mushrooms
  5. 330ml guiness
  6. 1 tblsp Tomato paste
  7. 2 tblsp Flour
  8. Ready made puff pastry
  9. Spices: long pepper, black pepper, salt, Worcester sauce, chili
  10. Peas: lemon cest, lemon juice, salt&pepper, fine cut mint, butter

Coriander Garlic Habanero Dip / Salsa

I absolutely love this! It’s one of the things that I do at least once a week for a loong time 🙂

  • Coriander
  • Garlic
  • Lemon (ideally organic so you can use the zest)
  • Habanero (or any other chili for that matter)
  • Best olive oil

Perfect for nachos and since I forgot to buy them, I used it as a salsa / topping on a toast with butter and tomatos… mmmh
