Meanwhile, life also continues inexorably onwards. ....
I don't know about you, but we tend to have an easy tea on a Saturday evening. Saturday's are often a day where we catch up with errands, so we are out and about, so a quick tea is in order.
We used to have 'sandwich tea' pretty much every Saturday, which is terrifying considering my eldest daughter was being exposed to all that gluten every week! Yikes.
This recipe is a deviation from my norm as it is neither vegan nor gluten free (well it could be GF if you used GF pitta breads), but it is extremely easy and quick to prepare, so I thought I'd share it anyway.
Coriander chicken, hoummous pitta pockets
Chicken breast cut into small strips
1 tsp each of ground cumin, ground coriander and turmeric
Juice of 2 lemons
The finely chopped stalks of a small bunch of fresh coriander
Marinate the chicken strips in the above ingredients either overnight or for a couple of hours depending on when you realise you have no chicken in the house!
Mix hoummous (either home made or shop bought) with some natural yoghurt to thin.
Chop the coriander leaves and mix with other salad leaves - whatever you have to hand.
Fry the chicken strips in a little oil to cook. They need to be still tender but cooked through. Serve the chicken with a good dollop of the hoummous mix and pitta breads
On another note, my brother and his wife went down to Mums house this weekend to sort out the garden. I had dealt with the house, so he was charged with getting the garden back under control before handing the house over on 22 June (fingers crossed). He has worked an absolute miracle on it. Here are the before and after photos. Bear in mind he arrived Friday morning and took the after photos on Saturday evening - when he gets going he works like a thing possessed :) He has been known to be banging fence posts in in the dark with just the light from a head torch to help....
