She lived in a small, beautiful apartment in one of the hottest downtown district of Cologne. She also had the coolest stand-up parties, ever ever ever. Perhaps the melancholy is my reminder that we were both 15 years old (or more) younger. Somehow, everything was different than it is today. Not necessarily beautiful, well maybe a little, but just different.

You have no idea what the question is for a faith, whether you need to cook the Bulgur or not, as it says on the package. Many of dousing him with boiling hot water and leave him in it sources. Some people think there's nothing and cook him. I personally think, however, that it is much more practical to douse him with hot water in the serving bowl and let sources, even if he is then perhaps a touch crisper. I don't need a cooking pot, and also no screen at all. In the end, You'll have to self - 😉 decide .

By the way, if You have a Buffet plan a finger food, then my quick and easy bulgur salad from the plethora of but, in small glass. No matter whether drinking glass, dessert glass or small tea light container. He is a Buffet-style salad is always an eye-catcher.

More great Buffet of salads are my Mediterranean bread salad , or my Italian pasta salad.

    VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: On the Bulgur-pack is that You get the Bulgur to cook supposed to. But this is from my experience not necessary. He begins absolutely fine and sufficient, if he is doused with boiling hot water. Maybe he did, depending on the variety You bought, still a little crisp, but he will sit for "" and also by the Dressing softer. If You certainly want to make sure when buying that the Bulgur wheat has a fine grain size. AND if You don't like him prefer to cook, You can do that, of course.
