Mermaids` Makings

Around the World in 12 Dishes – Iceland


This month we landed in Iceland on our “Around the World in 12 Dishes” travel. As I flicked through the recipes one of them caught my eye straight away- because it was something from my childhood. I hadn`t cooked it for years and thought to give it a go. And yes it tasted just like when I was a child.

Here it is:

Makkarónumjólk- Macaroni in Milk

All you need is about 1/2 litre water and milk, 120 g macaroni, a bit of salt and sugar. Cook pasta in water and add some ( I really did not measure it) milk, salt, sugar …  let it simmer a little bit  and it is done! 

I LOVED it.  You can serve the soup with cinnamon if you like but I  did not have cinnamon at home and  it  tasted good without it too.  I will definitely be making the soup  again.. as it`s quick, easy, warming  and inexpensive. My lil one was eager to help me by measuring out the pasta but I knew she would not even try the soup. Never mind.. she is in Portugal already which is our next month and made a delicious cake tonight. But more about this next time!
