Regular Dinner: Family Famous Chicken Pie

Family Famous Chicken Pie.1

Ingredients:
2 whole chickens – cut up into smaller pieces
1 onion – chopped
VOO – Virgin olive oil
2 heaped dessert spoons full crushed garlic
Salt – to taste
Chicken spice – to taste
Rosemary – to taste
Basil – to taste
10 cloves
2 cups of boiling water

Box puff pastry / or filo pastry
1 egg
Milk

Method:
Fry onions in VOO till golden and translucent, add garlic and fry another minute or two.
Spoon mixture out on a plate and set aside
Add extra VOO in a large pot, add chicken, stir and fry till you have all the pieces a golden color.
Add all spices, to taste and also the cloves.
Add water, and bring to a rolling boil and then cook for ±1 hour till meat soft and tender and falling off the bone. Be careful, do not overcook it.
Now we usually let this just sit overnight, in the pot as it will still have enough heat and cook a bit more.
The next morning, heat it just enough in order for you to not burn your fingers, and it’s easy to handle and debone thoroughly.
Shred the meat and leave it in the juice.

Family Famous Chicken Pie.2

Prepare your baking dish. Spray or butter the bottom. I use filo pastry, much easier than rolling out the puff pastry.
Place one sheet on the countertop, paint it with the egg wash along the edges and a few spots in the middle, and then add another sheet on top.
Continue till you have at least 5 or 6 sheets stacked on top of one another. Take this stack and place it in your dish.
Make sure you have the edges also covered with the pastry.
Now spoon the chicken out onto the pastry. I usually use a slotted spoon to ensure that I do not have a lot of juice, leave it till the end, then you will be able to see if you need to add a tad more, depending on how juicy you like it and it is.
Remember when it’s cold, you will not see as much juice, but when baking and heated you will notice the juice.
Egg wash the pastry sheets at the edges, as you will now add the top layer of filo sheets and they need to stick together.
Now start the process over again with the filo pastry sheets, another 5 or 6 sheets, and lay that over the top of the meat.
Egg wash the edges of the top sheets, and bind them to the bottom edges. I usually fold them to ensure that I lock down the meat and juice inside.
Egg wash the entire top.
Bake in the oven at 375F for ± 40-45 minutes, and you have a good golden color and the pie nice and warm.

Family favorite: Cape Seed Bread

Cape Seed Bread.1

Ingredients
500g whole wheat bread flour
85g sunflower seeds
50g pumpkin seeds
25g poppy seeds
5ml salt
1 x 8g packet quick-rise instant yeast
15ml sugar

30ml sunflower oil
350ml lukewarm water (be careful, it should not be hot, as it will burn the yeast)

1 beaten egg to brush over the dough. You can mix a drop or two milk with it, but not necessary.
Decorate in lines, with sesame, poppy and sunflower seeds.

Cape Seed Bread.2

Method:
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Pour the water and oil onto the dry ingredients and knead for about a minute. It’s a bit sticky, but not to worry.
Place the dough in an oiled loaf pan/or use a spray to coat your pan liberally (9” x 5”).
Brush with the whisked egg and decorate with alternate lines of sesame and poppy seeds. As I did not have poppy seeds, I used sesame, extra sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Use a teaspoon, to lightly press the seeds into the dough, to ensure that it will stick properly.
Cover the dough with a tea towel and let it rise for about 45 minutes – till it nicely fills out the pan to the top edge.
Pre heat the oven to 180C / 350F and bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
Cool on rack.

Treat: Gluten Free Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Gluten Free Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.1

Ingredients:
½ cup confectioners/icing sugar
1 2/3 cups Gluten Free Flour (I used Robin Hood All Purpose GF Flour)
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Dutch processed)
1¾ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 stick room temperature unsalted butter
1¼ cups sugar (I used berry sugar, as I prefer a finer sugar)
2 large eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Method
Preheat oven to 350°F with the rack in the middle.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt with a wooden spoon and set aside.
Using an electric hand mixer, and in a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until creamy, ±2-3 minutes.
Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula.
Add 1 egg and beat on medium speed till blended.
Add the 2nd egg and vanilla and beat again until well blended.
Now combine the butter and flour mixtures and beat on low-speed just until blended, and no dry spots visible.
Use a 12.5 ml measuring spoon, scoop up a rounded spoonful of dough, and roll a ball in the palm of your hand.
In a separate bowl, sift the confectioners/icing sugar and then dip/roll the ball until well covered.

Gluten Free Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.2

Place the balls on the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Bake until they are cracked and puffed, ±-12-14 minutes.
Remove from the oven and when slightly cooled, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

THURSDAY’S CAT QUOTE

 

 

Daisy Mae here, and I found another cat quote on Mom’s desk in her bedroom. This is a cute and funny just like me. More quotes to come in the future. The quote is below. Enjoy.

I used to love dogs until I discovered cats.

Cat Quotes

DSCN0162Hi everyone, since Mom is taking a well deserved rest from blogging and only concentrating on her blogging course called Commenting Basics she said it would be OK for me to blog. So I Daisy Mae thought it would be great if I shared a couple of cat quotes and some pictures with you. Above is Sister Tigger before she passed away on 9-11-2015.

Quote 1: 

Cats choose us; we don’t own them.

______Kristin Cast

Quote 2: 

A cat can be trusted to purr when she is pleased, which is more than can be said for human beings.

_____William Ralph Inge

A Pleasant Surprise

I named this picture A Pleasant Surprise because my nephew and his family thought the deer ate all his sunflowers. As it turns out, some of those sunflowers still bloomed. He was thrilled because he put a lot of work into planting them.

Below is the result of lots of hard work by this 15-year-old.

A Brief Overview Of How My Blog Began

 

 

blogger-recognition-award-badgePart of the Blogger Recognition Award, I have to tell the story of how your blog began. So the following is how my blog came about.

I started blogging because I wanted to have some fun and I was curious. I never realized how technical it would get but I must say I’ve had a lot of fun and met a lot of nice bloggers. Blogging didn’t come easy for me but once I got started, I learned a lot to get me through blogging.

My blog started out with the name COUNTRY LIVING. Then shortly there after,  I renamed my blog to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). I started WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) in January of 2017. It’s been about 6 or 7 months now and I’m still having fun blogging. Not only have I met several nice people through blogging but I follow several different blogging sites.

After blogging for 3 months, I decided to start CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE because I had so much fun blogging. I’ll talk about that blog in a separate post but since I started WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) has got 185+  followers since January.  This really pleases me that I’ve reached this many followers and it’s all because of my faithful readers and followers.

My blog has pictures, posts and reblogs.

I’ve started taking a 14 day course in the Fundamentals of Blogging. After that, I’ll go from there.

Thanks to everyone who’s helped make my blog successful.pusheen
