Lost In Translation….

… that’s how I’m feeling lately… my school started a round of mid-terms exams, so instead of cooking and baking I’m revising and then revising some more and then even more. After my last post Anna asked me to tell more about my studies. And yes Dear Readers I’m lost in translation. My studies are about translations – we are being trained to become so called “sworn translators” – the institution that practically doesn’t exist neither in England or in US. Sworn translators or certified translators are those who got a certificate to translate infront of the court, or to translate the official documents such as business documentation, legal documents and so on. They are registered and have the legal obligation to keep improving their skills and knowledge (just as forensics and barristers) this way the Act on Sworn Translator guarantees that all sworn translators are always capable of doing translators of such importance as mentioned above. We are trained to translated from Polish to English and English to Polish, doing written, consecutive and a vista translations. On the top of that we learn about banking, economic theories, juriprudence, the difference about legal systems (Polish, American and British) So this weekend I’m having exams on legal and business vocabulary and theory and on juriprudence. So Dear Readers I’m totally lost in translation… and as I’m lost completely until monday I took two days off to revise well… this of course means that my brain needs a proper feeding. Today as I went to pick up some paper stock I restock as well on healthy and proper food.

For lunch my brain was craving meat, no wonder there since I’m carnivore and compeltely accepted that. My blood group is type 0, which indicates the primal need for meat… and believe me or not – meat and fish keep me nice and healthy, when I swtiched once to vegetarian I got myself sick beyond belief… so I stick to meat, preferably low fat red one…my brain loves it –  how else would I have remembered this complicated word jurisprudence???

Memory Boosting and Body Warming Wraps

(for 4 wraps)

200g low fat beef diced

100g can corn

1 tomato diced

1 small onion sliced

3 small mushrooms

1 tea spoon sambal oelek

2 tea spoons gyros spice

salt, pepper

4 tortilla wraps (big ones)


Spice the diced meat, mix well and let it stand for an hour. In the frying pan fry quickly the onion, add meat, sliced mushrooms and corn and give it all a nice fry for 5 minutes. Add tomato and fry for another 5 mins, add sambal oelek and let cook for 2 mins. Spread the cheese on the torillas and put seperately under the grill, or… use crisp plate in your microwave. When cheese melts, spread the filling, roll the wraps and cut in halves. Enjoy 🙂
