The Big Muddy

Ok ok, I promise I will stop with the Springsteen songs. Such a great track though….Its the beginning of a new week. This week took a bit of a toll on me but I survived and have managed to tackle some pretty grim tasks. I have also totally managed to ignore some really hugely important life stuff. I know that ignoring the problem will not make it go away. I am doing it anyway. Don’t care. Don’t want to deal, Not doing it. I am a grown woman and if I want to act like a 6 yr old then that’s my prerogative. In fact this week I have been particulary in touch with my inner child. Rufus and I seem to have spent a bit more time together this week. He is totally rocking my world right now.

I have just edited my shots from the week and even though I felt so very uninspired I did make quite a bit of kid friendly food! I announced that I would make homemade chicken nuggets expecting a round of applause, or at least a small whoop. Lola groans loudly…”can’t we just have crappy frozen ones..You know like from Iceland” I ignored her comment. The Iceland thing again, I never go there, have never shopped there ever! Lidl, Aldi yes. Anyway I ignored her and made a batch. Right I demand if you have kids, or not. Make them. They are healthy quick and so moreish.

I apologise for the rubbish shot of them. I am trying to learn how to use the Canon digital camera my friend lent me (I’m kinda hoping it is a long termish loan) Well long enough for me to learn how to use it properly. I can’t seem to get the whole iso, f-stop focus thing. For your amusement I have posted a photo of a sticky spicy roast chicken dish that I did. ¬†Hmmm all you food photographers out there, don’t start sweating yet!!

Oh yeah I made a heart shaped banana bread, the kids ate it before I could shoot the baked version. I was not happy! Tilda took a couple of shots of the family too!

Have a wonderful week

Lots of love

Chicken Nuggets

They take half an hour to make from start to finish. They are so healthy and delicious.

Makes 18ish

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts (free range please)
  • 1 tablespoon of mayo
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
  • 150grams of panko breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper

Pulse the chicken breasts in a food processor and pulse a few times until the chicken is in bits and a tiny bit gloopy add mayo and garlic and pulse again.

Tip the bread crumbs in a bowl and in your hands make small dumplings of the chicken mixture (around the size of a ping pong ball). Roll the nugget in the breadcrumbs put on a baking sheet. Continue till all the chicken mixture is used. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for 10mins or so to let the mixture rest. Meanwhile turn the oven on to 190C.

Place in the oven for 20mins or so until the breadcrumbs are brown and the chicken is cooked through. I served these with peas and chips.

Enjoy x
