The front window has the hearts in it now. This is a pretty good picture.
Now when the Yellow Light Parade passes down the street they will know that we respect and honour our front line workers.
Our friend Terry, over at Brian’s Home is out of the hospital after having heart problems. He has a clean bill of health from his doctor. A reason to give Thanks on Thursday. Purrs andwishes to you, Terry.
Prayers will continue til he’s sprite and active.
May 6th is dough day at “In Purrsuit of Flavours.”
REMINDER: In Purrsuit of Flavours will be published on May 6th. Shoko and Iworked hard at this one. We argued about the measurements but finally it was done. It is a recipe we designed ourselves. In may our desired recipes are BREADS, Now this could mean buns, pretzels, wraps, pita bread….you get the idea. If, you are unable to make dough, like mom is….use your imagination. It’s not like we’re going to black list you cause you have no bread recipe. Not us!
Bacon of Piglove is hosting Shopping Around The World today. Sandwiches are what he wants recipes for this month.
I’m not keen on a sandwich, myself. The bread makes my ankles swell. Very unattractive! However, mom loves sandwiches so I will don my hat and bib…I mean apron and we will begin the sandwich.
Looks like my apron’s in the wash…I will have to be ever so careful or I’ll be bathing all evening.
The sandwich we are making is a Toasted Mushroom and Bacon Sandwich
INGREDIENTS: Mushrooms: two $0.23 each. Bacon: two strips $3.98 for 500 grams or 1 pound Mayo: spread evenly on one side of bread $4.27 for 890 ml (31 ounces) Salt and Pepper: sitting in your cupboard with the butter
Bread $1.97 for 675 grams (1.4 pounds)
These ingredients are to build one sandwich.
First, you must fry your bacon so it is nice and crispy. After frying the bacon, cut your mushrooms into slices and fry them. Meanwhile get the old toaster out and toast 2 pieces of bread. When the toaster pops with your bread nice and golden brown, butter one side of each piece of bread. Then put your mayo on one side of the buttered bread. Your two mushrooms go on next and finally the 2 pieces of bacon broken in half.
Mom has obtained a secret document from a friend. It was all hush, hush and on a need to know basis. They met in the back lane at midnight….mom scurried home with her treasure before anyone could see her. Except Cow Kitty, who was scooping out new territory for a game of, “Gotcha, You Freak!” Mom came flying in the house and slammed the door. Leaning against it mom told me I’d have to help her because Shoko has a big mouth and this info was top-secret. I, of course, agreed….I was so nosy about this project.
Ta da…. It’s Shopping Around The World today with our host Piglove.This was a real coo on mom’s part. She secured the recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken coating. Yes, those 11 herb and spices that have always been so elusive to discover.
I’m here to help mom. Just call me Colonel Kali. I know the glasses are not the colonels but his glasses are so tacky. Dad used to have a pair like his….no pizazz.
Colonel Sander’s nephew casually revealed to a reporter a recipe that had been passed down in a family scrapbook.
Could this be KFC’s closely guarded secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices? The nephew Joe Ledington, said it is. He claims his job as a kid was to mix this same recipe in large batches.
INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED:
Chicken parts of your choice
2 tbsp. milk
3/4 cup oil
Prepare oil in a cast iron pot to fry. You will need your 3/4 cup of oil. In a bowl, mix 2 cups of flour. 1/3 tbsp of salt, tbsp. of black pepper, 1/2 tbsp of thyme, 1/2 tbsp of basil, 1/3 tbsp of oregano., 1 tbsp of celery salt, 1 tbsp of dried mustard, 4 tbsp of paprika, 1 tbsp of garlic salt.1 tbsp of ground ginger and 1 tbsp of white pepper.
HANDY HINT: 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon
You will notice there are no prices for anything. We are very sorry but mom re-packaged the chicken pieces when we got them like 2 months ago, so if she gave you a price…she’d be lying cause she has no idea what she paid. Most of the herbs and spices were kicking about in the cupboard and the flour has been living here for some time…no bugs though….mom checked. The ingredients for making up the coating. We made up the coating and kept it in a sealed container. If we feel like having homemade KFC one night, we don’t have to mix all the herbs and spices.
In a separate bowl, add 2 tbsp of milk and an egg and whisk. Mix your chicken into the bowl and then coat the flour and spice mixture. We used a bread bag and shook it.
Finally we fried the chicken in the frying pan for 10 to 15 minutes. Looks good mom…kinda dark though. Can you lighten it up a bit?Much better, mom. It looks tasty.
The finished chicken wings and breast. It is a small batch because mom also baked the rest of the chicken.
Bake the chicken in a 350F oven for about 45 minutes. Oh really mom! What happened? The chicken got stuck on the tin foil cause you didn’t use the sliding foil and the wings fell apart when you lifted them out? They don’t look very appetizing. Alright, we’ll throw some parsley on top of them. MOL
