Mim had good intentions of being up early but couldn't sleep well last night, so she moved around for the morning. She did some washing and got dressed and headed out after lunch for a walk. It was a beautiful day with no clouds and warm. Mum got a couple if treats at the market, a little window shopping too. She ran into a friend on the way home which was nice.
On the way to our house you could smell smoke from a small Bush fire from across town, and see the smoke.
Chicken tacos for dinner. Mum learnt a new tip this week. She used to fry chicken pieces and they would come out a bit rubbery. The tip was to to first pat dry the chicken pieces with a paper towel (she used chicken thighs). Then she cut into 1 inch /2 cm sized cubes. Put in a bowl and put a little oil on chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Because mum was making tacos, she added chili, cumin, paprika and a little ground coriander. She put aside while she chopped salsa and made guacamole.
She then heated a non stick pan. When hot add chicken and stir till brown and cooked. She used 4 chicken thighs and cooked it in two batches. No oil needed and it was her best cooked moist and tasty chicken. She made a similar stir fry during the week using Chinese spices which was yum.
Me - well I ate about a teaspoon of raw chicken. That was enough for me.
