Meal of the Week
1 boiling fowl (I used 6 chicken thighs diced)
1 large onion (diced)
½cup partly cooked celery diced (I used leek)
½ cup partly cooked peas
Good short crust (I used puff pastry)
Preheat a medium oven. Roll chicken pieces in flour and fry golden brown. In a larger pan fry onion in butter and then add chicken, (I just added the onion to the chicken all in a large pan) add salt and pepper to taste.
Summer Day Salad
I made this while the Chicken pie above cooked.
1cup celery (I used red capsicum)
1cup diced apple
1cup chopped cucumber
Tomato’s (I used half a punnet of Cherie toms)
Salad dressing of your choice
Combine apple, cucumber and celery (or red capsicum) in salad bowl and moisten with orange juice. Add lettuce and tomatoes and top with dressing when served. Or put lettuce in cups on a serving platter, put mix in. Top with tomato’s and serve dressing separately.
And all plated up together.
½ cup condensed milk
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 ½ cups coconut (shredded works best)
1 cup coarsely chopped block chocolate (I get organic choc chips from our local community’s food store)
Combine it all together and drop spoon full’s on to a buttered tray. Cook in a slow oven until the biscuits are tinted at the edges.
I burnt a batch and they tasted the best, lightly cooked were too chewy for my lot but there was none leftover.
Taste great with tea.
