|The seeds my kids and I planted last Saturday...|
To me, this image is the epitome of anticipation.
And is the perfect image to sum up how I was feeling.
(adapted from a recipe by Susie Fishbein from Passover by Design)
So easy and delicious to make!
1. Cut 4 chicken breasts and 4 green onions into 2 inch pieces. Trim the sides so that the chicken & onion are the same length. Not necessary for taste but it makes them look pretty. And we all know we eat with our eyes first, right?
2. Thread onto a skewer. She did 3 onions & two chickens on a long skewer. I did one of each on a toothpick.
3. Bread: set up a breading station of 3 wide-bottomed bowls and bread in this order:a)1/2 cup flour combined with 1 tbsp seasoned salt
b)2 eggs beaten lightly
c) 1 cup panko bread crumbs combined with 2 tbsp very finely chopped parsley & 1 tsp salt
4. Heat 1/2 cm vegetable oil in a pan & fry each lollipop until golden on each side. This will not cook the chicken through so you will have to ...
5. Finish cooking the chicken in a 300 oven for about 10 min or so.
6. Susie served them with spaghetti squash and a curried dipping sauce but you go ahead and serve it with whatever your little heart desires.
|Susie Fishbein in action. This woman is amazing. Four kids, eight cookbooks, an Honoured Guest at the White House, and named one of the 50 most powerful Jewish women. All while looking gorgeous.|
|The seedlings one week later (seriously! One week! These things went nuts!)|
And once, again, this is how I am feeling right now.
Isn't great when you have weeks that literally leave you bursting with happiness?
