It has been a while. When you don’t have to do something everyday for the sake of completing a challenge, naturally, you don’t do it! But the urge to take photos has increased over the passing weeks, and it can’t be avoided for much longer. So today, I photographed dinner!

Today’s dinner was chicken, with everything in the fridge thrown in. Pretty much anyway. I added lots of different spices, spring onions, red onions, peppers, onions…all the onion it seems, and some pasta to finish it off. Perfecto!

Life has been ticking over nicely the past little while. In a few weeks, I will leave the job that I’ve been in for almost two years and move on to something completely different and completely new. I’m excited, nervous and more excited – all at the same time. There’s a baby shoot coming up next weekend, a Wedding in March and lots of other bits and pieces in between – busy times! So, if you can be patient, standby for more photos soon!

“We all like chicken”

I tried making a new dish today, after having something that tasted very nice at the Pub last week. Salt & Pepper Chicken! We began with dicing up all the ingredients, finding lots of things in the cupboard to throw in, and chopping up the chicken. Therefore there isn’t a specific recipe…but honestly it tasted so good, so here goes!

  • Chicken Fillets
  • 1 Cup of flour (this is an english ‘cup’ so an actual mug, not an American measuring of a cup!)
  • 1 teaspoon of chinese five spice
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic granules or 1 clove of fresh garlic
  • A sprinkling of ginger chopped up finely
  • Spring Onions chopped up finely
  • 2 Red Peppers chopped finely
  • 1 green chilli and 1 red chilli de-seeded and chopped up small

Firstly cut your chicken into strips, fairly thin ones, but not too thin! Then mix the spices, salt, pepper, garlic and flour together in a bowl and add the strips of chicken, coating them well in the mixture. Mix together your ginger, spring onions, red peppers and chilli and fry them together separately with some chilli flakes and coriander. Fry your chicken in a small amount of oil in a very hot pan until it’s golden and crispy. Gradually add to the pan with the mixed vegetables in until you have a huge stir fry type dish.

We served ours up with spaghetti/pasta strands and it went down really well! Keep aside some spare peppers and spring onion in case yours did what mine did, and completely disappear in the frying process! Finally, wash hands before touching eyes – chilli hurts!
