Recipe From Russia: A Simple Delicious Pelmeni Recipe!

This also makes a great crock-pot cooking dish and or oven baking crocks can be used also. Remember to lard the meat. Bears have virtually no fat in the meat and you need to add that fat to help cooking it. Bear meat is tough, so soak it overnight at least in marinade. By the way, toss a can of beer into the marinade and that will break the meat down better also/faster…

Enjoy….this recipe is really good…

“Our country is, as they say, destined by the heavens to feed the whole planet. And we’ll try and do that,” Medvedev told journalists of Russian TV channels in a major interview aired on Thursday.

Russia’s grain exports surge more than 54% this year Apart from being the country’s “destiny,” the foods plainly make “nice export goods,” the prime minister added. Russia’s agriculture has expanded greatly over the past few years, becoming a solid and profitable industry, unlike the way it was a couple decades ago.

“Back in 1990s, the agriculture was called a ‘black hole’, where one should not invest, we were told we should not feed ourselves since we can purchase everything elsewhere,” Medvedev said. “Now, it feeds our whole country. We’ve reached the main goals regarding food security and we’re exporting grains, other goods to the world market.”

This year, Russia has enjoyed vast growth of its agricultural exports, becoming the world’s top exporter of wheat. From January through September of 2018, exports of Russia’s wheat and meslin flour expanded by 54.3 percent compared to the previous year.

The amount of food which the county imports, in its turn, continued to shrink. Imports of grains to Russia dropped by 11.1 percent during the same period. Imports of barley have suffered an enormous decline, dropping a whopping 94 percent.

Kutya or Kutia: A recipe of a Russian Holiday Pudding…http://windowstorussia.com/kutya-or-kutia-a-recipe-of-a-russian-pudding.html http://windowstorussia.com/kutya-or-kutia-a-recipe-of-a-russian-pudding.html#comments Wed, 12 Dec 2018 09:05:22 +0000 http://windowstorussia.com/?p=44246 kutiaKutya is a sweet whole grained pudding and is especially popular around the holiday times in Russia. My suggestion is to make this treat several days ahead of time, as it get better with age in the refrigerator and it will last up to two weeks if kept cold…

It is a food that is simple to make. but very rich in flavor, delightful odors and useful winter calories. This is a traditional holiday food that is eaten after the fasting times of the Orthodox religion…

Lets make Kutya…

Ingredients:

1 pound wheat berries (entire wheat kernel)
1 pound walnuts in the shell (or adjust down if you buy per-shelled)
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar (Honey makes a better sugar!)
1 real vanilla bean, grated (Or use fake vanilla if that is all that is available!)
Peel of 1 lemon, grated (Okay I know you have fake real lemon in the fridge! Use it sparsely!)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup poppy-seeds (optional in the drug free America, Russian put poppy-seeds in everything!)
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
Confectioner’s sugar as a topping

Directions:

Shell the walnuts.
Soak the wheat overnight, covered with water about 1 inch above the grain level.
Drain the wheat and refill with water until 1 inch above the grain.
Put the pot with wheat on the stove and boil it for 2-3 hours on a very low simmer. (No!  Low –  like I said!)
There should be just enough water after an hour in the pot to keep the wheat from burning.
Be sure that the heat is low and watch very carefully.
Add water if necessary. Keep it just above the wheat level the whole time.
Pour off water and rinse with cold water. Use colander if need be.
Pour off all liquid again after sitting 5 minutes.
Spread the wheat berries out on clean cotton kitchen towels and dry for at least 2 hours.
Place the wheat berries in a food processor or blender and grind them. Do not paste them, but grind as in a powder form.
Remove the wheat berries to a bowl and then grind the walnuts in the food processor.
Mix the walnuts with the ground wheat. (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10 times with the big spoon! Okay twelve times is better…)
Add 2 cups granulated sugar, lemon peel, vanilla, raisins, poppy-seeds and apricots.
Mix by hand until a blended sticky thick mess.
Mound in a serving dish and sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar.

Go ahead and make some Kutya, your family will be as surprised as you are, that you can make a treat that is better than any bought at the local store…

Also just call it a Christmas Pudding…

Photo taken on Dec. 10, 2018 shows a Tu-160 strategic bomber at the Simon Bolivar International Airport, in Maiquetia, Vargas State, Venezuela. Two Russian Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bombers have arrived in Venezuela, the Russian defense ministry said in a statement. According to Russian news report, Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez welcomed the Russian warplanes, saying that Venezuela is getting prepared to defend itself when needed and the country will do it with the friends who advocate respect-based relations between states.

This is a good thing and, “Oh My, it has stirred things up in the US Gov…”

Earlier in the day, Pompeo referred to the Russian and Venezuelan governments…

MOSCOW, Dec 11 (Reuters) – Two Russian strategic bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons have landed in ally Venezuela in a show of support for the government there that infuriated Washington.

“Russia’s government has sent bombers halfway around the world to Venezuela,” fumed U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Twitter. and “The Russian and Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt governments squandering public funds, and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer.”

Nothing like telling a flagrant lie! Is there U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo?

Maybe looking at the home front and fixing things there is a better way to begin. Right Pompeo?

Yamal LNG gas liquefaction project is underway at the South Tambeyskoye field on the Yamal Peninsulahttp://windowstorussia.com/yamal-lng-gas-liquefaction-project-is-underway-at-the-south-tambeyskoye-field-on-the-yamal-peninsula.html http://windowstorussia.com/yamal-lng-gas-liquefaction-project-is-underway-at-the-south-tambeyskoye-field-on-the-yamal-peninsula.html#respond Wed, 12 Dec 2018 04:56:29 +0000 http://windowstorussia.com/?p=64633

The Yamal LNG gas liquefaction project is underway at the South Tambeyskoye field on the Yamal Peninsula.The project operator is Yamal LNG, a joint venture of Russian gas producer Novatek, France’s Total and China’s CNPC and Silk Road Fund.Initially, the plant was designed to consist of three trains (gas liquefaction and purification facilities), each with a capacity of 16.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG and up to 1.2 mtpa of gas condensate, to be delivered to Asia Pacific markets and also to Europe.

The first train was launched in December 2017, and the plant’s second facility became operational six months ahead of schedule in August 2018.The hundredth batch comprising 7.4 mt of LNG was shipped from the plant in December 2018. It has also been decided to build the fourth train with the capacity of up to 1 mtpa based on Novatek’s proprietary liquefaction technology called Arctic Cascade.

The throughput of the Northern Sea Route has increased several-fold due to shipments from Yamal LNG.The project involves over 650 companies from 55 Russian regions and some 60,000 personnel. Icebreakers and port vessels for Yamal LNG are being built at Russian shipyards. Government support measures have been approved for the project.

The launch of all the planned trains at the Yamal LNG plant will increase Russia’s share on the global LNG market by 2.5 times to reach some 10 percent.

Ukrainian calling to destroy Crimean Bridge…http://windowstorussia.com/__trashed-6.html http://windowstorussia.com/__trashed-6.html#respond Tue, 11 Dec 2018 05:48:22 +0000 http://windowstorussia.com/?p=64639

MOSCOW, December 11. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said on Tuesday a Ukrainian lawmaker, who earlier urged to destroy the Crimean Bridge, had made a direct call for terrorism.Verkhovna Rada lawmaker Igor Mosiychuk was earlier quoted as saying that the bridge across the Kerch Strait, which connects Crimea with mainland Russia, must be “destroyed” by whoever possible, be it “Ukrainian subversive groups, insurgents from Caucasus, aliens or the Lord God himself.”Commenting on the reports, Maria Zakharova said it was “one of many statements, made by the Kiev regime and the modern Ukraine’s political establishment, which contains a direct call for terrorist activities.””If they see nothing wrong about public statements of this kind, it’s hard to imagine what their clandestine plans could be, or what kind of “peaceful future” the Ukrainian regime has prepared for its own country,” Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page.”The official government’s policies are based on provocations, similar to the Kerch Strait incident, the staged death of [Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko] and on endless intimidation and threats,” she added.

I don’t call myself a Republican anymore. Never thought I’d ever live long enough to say that…

I see that the democrats are exactly as bad as I saw them years ago, but everything that I tried to claim that made me a republican has been tossed aside…

I was a republican among a family of teachers and all teachers I knew were democrats or made to be democrats by force. Threats were common to my parents about who they could vote for and who they could not. I remember it well as a kid and listen to my dad, upset at who and what he was told to vote for. They had meetings at school and they were given instructions on telling the whole family who to vote for and how many friends they had to talk to about voting the way the establishment said to…

So my reasons are legit as to why I felt democrats are crooks, cheats and liars. Now I have to face the fact that both parties are the same and exactly the same. All except for the icing on the cake…

Being a republican and or a democrat sucks and we need a real starting over. A start over of all of and completely of, the political system in the USA…

The world looks at us like a laughing stock and we go along with it. We are the leaders (~SARC~) of the free world and act like a bunch of third grade boys who found out that firecrackers are good to blow up frogs with and a BB gun can kill birds in the tees nearby…

Why can we not lead with dignity, truth, fairness and compassion? Why do we look the other way? Why are we so silent?

Why…

Freedom in the US is a joke; as is liberty, expression, life and democracy. It is all a facade that seems to be tailored made to appease the masses and unless we get off our duffs, our duffs are going to be penned to the wall as trophies for the hunters…

Or are we there already…

CaptureIf you call yourself a democrat, then you are as much of the problem as a republican. If you call yourself free, then you are the problem. If you say you have rights, you are the problem. If you do not demand real outside gov. investigations into things, you are the problem. If you say that you see nothing wrong, you are the problem. If you ignore the chaos, then you are the problem. If you desire governmental help, you are the problem. If you do not stand up for the neighbors, you are the problem. If you… and on and on and on…

The system will work if we keep fingers out of the pie…

Whose fingers are in the pie and why are these pie snatchers not lynched as in the old days?

How many cookies did you snatch as a child, if when you were caught with your hand in the cookie jar, you got your ass spanked?

Lynched? Oh My! But we will murder and condone that murder all over the world, as if it is perfectly acceptable…

While we are silent in, at and among our homes, travel and work. Silent as scared mice, as a cat watches the front door…

Why?

Started my health examinations…http://windowstorussia.com/started-my-health-examinations.html http://windowstorussia.com/started-my-health-examinations.html#respond Fri, 07 Dec 2018 07:10:53 +0000 http://windowstorussia.com/?p=64606

Run from the mean Russian Women!

This Monday Sunday I go back to be picked upon… (Then next week round three will happen.)

But the basics are…

Long term 3 month blood sugar is 4.7 mmol/l and or 85 mg/dl. Kinda low, but very very good for this diabetic….I work at my diabetes 24 hours a day, 365 days a year… It shows!

I do not have HIV… (Had four tests since coming to Russia. Russians are very good about testing for HIV and very aware of the issue…)
I have a node on my thyroid gland…
My cholesterol is low….(I keep to a diet!)
I do not have any blood markers showing cancer of any type…
In fact my numbers are better than a few years ago. 😉

Stage 1. Laboratory research: (This is done)

1 Complete blood count ✅
2 Biochemical blood test ✅
3 Lipid profile (high and low density cholesterol) ✅
4 Glycated hemoglobin ✅
5 Coagulogram + D-dimer ✅
6 TSH thyroid stimulating hormone ✅
7 T4 free – thyroxine free thyroid ✅
8 Testosterone ✅
9 PSA common – tumor marker of the prostate gland ✅
10 PSA free – tumor marker of the prostate gland ✅
11 Complex HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and C ✅
12 General urine analysis ✅

Extra done early from round two: thyroid ultrasound ✅, abdominal ultrasound ✅, ultrasound of the urinary system ✅.

Now I have to get ready for round two…

Stage 2 Diagnostic examination:

13 MRI of the pelvic organs (Round two)
14 echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart) (Round two)
15 ECG with transcript (Round two)
16 abdominal ultrasound (Done already in round one) ✅
17 thyroid ultrasound (Done already in round one) ✅
18 ultrasound of the urinary system (Done already in round one) ✅
19 Gastroscopy under sedation (in medication sleep) (Round three)
20 Colonoscopy under sedation (in medication sleep) (Round three)

Not as fun of a round of tests and then Round Three which is really not fun: (Probably a week after this Mondays tests.)

Then consultation time with the doctors…

21 Consultation cardiologist
22 Consultation urologist
23 Consultations of a gastroenterologist, endocrinologist, rheumatologist, and neurologist are also included.
24 Consultation therapist

So far just two issues that I see: One a node on my Thyroid and we will have to retest for sugar in my urine. Something not right with the urine test…

Oh! Remember that diabetes can be controlled. Never gotten rid of, but controlled. Eat right, exercise, take you medicine and test your blood sugar: I mean test it all the time…

USA Thy Ignorance Shines…http://windowstorussia.com/usa-thy-ignorance-shines.html http://windowstorussia.com/usa-thy-ignorance-shines.html#respond Fri, 07 Dec 2018 05:24:45 +0000 http://windowstorussia.com/?p=64604 CBC said “Meng Wanzhou arrested on suspicion of violating trade sanctions against Iran”. Therefore that means we can arrest anyone due to suspicions and to hell with rule of law…

BEIJING (AP) — China on Thursday demanded that Canada release an executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei who was arrested in a case that compounds tensions with the U.S. and threatens to complicate trade talks. Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies Ltd., faces possible extradition to the United States, according to Canadian authorities. The Globe and Mail newspaper, citing law enforcement sources, said she is suspected of trying to evade U.S. trade curbs on Iran. Huawei, the biggest

Ignorance of our actions does not make it right. But I promise that soon reciprocal actions are going to start happening. I guess we are just going to rant and rave at the whole world, because we are falling farther and farther behind in almost literally everything…

First: Iran sanctions are illegal….period…illegal…
Second: We just put CEO’s of America in the bullseye as they travel the world to do business…

Can you say, “USA Isolation!” and or maybe worse yet, “We Want War!”

WtR

PS: Bad China, Bad Russia, Bad Venezuela, Bad North Korea, Bad Brazil, Bad Iraq, Bad Syria, Bad Iran, Bad Qatar, Bad Yemen, Bad Gaza, Bad Balkans, Bad France, Bad Mexico, Bad Cuba, Bad Belarus, Bad Democratic Republic of Congo, Bad Zimbabwe, Bad Sudan, Bad Cote D’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Bad Burma, Bad Libya, Bad Lebanon, Bad bad bad bad and more and more bad countries… I know you can name a few more…there is dozens more…

Its really amazing that the government would go out of its way to have Ms.Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer, and a non-U.S. citizen, arrested in Canada,for supposedly violating U.S. sanctions, yet can’t come to grips with arresting the Clintons, who are far more flagrantly egregious. Says a lot about how poor our justice system really is…

Again…. Thank You…. Donationshttp://windowstorussia.com/again-thank-you-donations.html http://windowstorussia.com/again-thank-you-donations.html#respond Wed, 05 Dec 2018 09:09:44 +0000 http://windowstorussia.com/?p=64595

Again, I would like to thank you for the donations…

Again thank you…

So everyone knows, the money received in the last few days, overwhelmingly was specified to go toward the healthcare work (or allowed for what is needed most) that I will have done in this next seven day time period. In fact I start tomorrow with ultrasounds, blood tests and other goodies. Then Monday coming up I get to the no fun stuff..

Time for Super Checkup…

Therefore, since the domain has been paid for two years recently and server has been paid for the next year, I am able to divert funds to my healthcare…

And I thank you very much…

WtR

PS: What amazes me is that if I was a Russian Citizen, all my healthcare would be free. That is the way it works for Svetochka. She only pays if she desires a certain doctor and or private healthcare clinic. I do not have that choice, I have to pay….granted it is dirt cheap and good quality, compared to my old USA standards…

This is Russia – 6http://windowstorussia.com/this-is-russia-6.html http://windowstorussia.com/this-is-russia-6.html#comments Wed, 05 Dec 2018 04:39:20 +0000 http://windowstorussia.com/?p=64590 She tried to wait and see the Patriarch Kirill of Moscow;
She never did see him, but she got some images and a few videos…

and a video…

I like the part when the lady runs out to meet a monk and kisses his hand. That is very common and I see our Father Pavel in the Tiny Russian Village have this happen to him constantly…

Maybe Sveta will post the information about what and where this monastery is?

And yes turn down the volume, “The Bells Will Be Ringing!”

Now you know the USA was behind Kerch Strait Incident…http://windowstorussia.com/now-you-know-the-usa-was-behind-kerch-strait-incident.html http://windowstorussia.com/now-you-know-the-usa-was-behind-kerch-strait-incident.html#respond Wed, 05 Dec 2018 04:22:43 +0000 http://windowstorussia.com/?p=64589

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The recent conflict between Russia and Ukraine in the Kerch Strait should serve as a reminder to European allies of the United States why the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project is a “bad idea,” a senior State Department official told reporters in a press briefing on Tuesday. “I would say the Kerch incident is a reminder that the less infrastructure you have, the less gas infrastructure you have bypassing Ukraine because of Nord Stream 2, the weaker the deterrent – deterrence is to Ru

Just reverse what is said and you understand the reason that Europe needs an alternate to Ukraine for stable gas deliveries…

Ukraine you are being used and abused…

Wake up people…

Then I will just keep it like it is…

This site is strictly driven by readers donations and it takes hundreds of dollars a year just to keep the basics going…

I will not spout about how I need money and will die and fall in in it, if I do not get that dollar!

But it helps and that is a good thing. In Moscow my finances are less exacting, compared to the Tiny Russian Village. Next year, I will be back in TRV and will need more help…

People have been very generous and even our car Sammy the Volga benefited from donations. Boza in his last years benefited greatly from many peoples generous donations for his eye medicine and such…

But, every dollar right now goes to keeping the domain online. Yes I still have the money donated for a 4X4 to use in the Tiny Russian Village. This is an important purchase that will happen one day….right now we are trying to get another village home (paper work) done and then come spring, I will have tons of work to do…

Winter is rough in Russia and it kinda shuts everything down for months…

Thank you very much for the donations and remember a dollar $ is sufficient. People work hard for their money…

WtR

PS: It takes exceedingly crazy amounts of “cup of joes” to keep this site confounding those trying to sway our sovereignty. If interested think of a number and donate. Coffee is what fuels WtR… Thanks
