And now for the Curry chicken zucchini boat!
300g chicken breast
3 tablespoons light soya sauce
1 teaspoon salt
One onion, chopped
Loads of chicken curry powder
75g mozarella cheese
230g of French beans
180g of carrot
1. Preseason a day before the 300g of chicken breast with one tablespoon of chicken curry powder and half a teaspoon of salt.
2. Slice the zucchinis into 2 and scrape out the centre with a teaspoon to form a boat. Add salt and curry powder on the insides.
3. Toast the zucchinis at 170 degrees Celsius, 30 min on skin side, 10 min on flesh side and remove from oven.
4. While the zucchinis are toasting, slice the French beans diagonally and the carrot into strips.
5. Remove zucchinis from the oven.
6.Fry the chopped onion until it starts to brown, then add carrots, add a tablespoon of light soya sauce, and stir until carrots are partially cooked, then add French beans, 2 tablespoons of chicken curry powder, stir until French beans are partially cooked then add the chicken, add a teaspoon of salt, and 2 tablespoons of light soya sauce and add liberally 3 tablespoons to the mix and stir until fully cooked.
7. Add the chicken, French bean and carrot mix then add on the cheese then toast in the oven at 170 degrees for another 10 min. They're done! Longer cooking time then previous because due to the chopping time for the French beans and carrots, I allowed the oven to cool.
Warning: Non spicy lovers do not apply. This recipe is midly spicy.
Those look tasty! No one felt like cooking since we just got back from vacation, so grocery store sushi and sandwiches for us today.
My two eldest turn 16 this week. Driver licenses (and greatly increased insurance costs) in the very near future.
True - vacations can be tiring. One difference I've found out from Singapore and the rest of the world is that Singapore you can manage without a car, but for the rest of the world, you're stranded without one. And I have a drivers license but I don't drive.
I think a zucchini boat is an extension of your will. You can basically stuff it with anything that makes you happy.
You are truly becoming the Zucchini master Mort :)
Still on vacations on my end - we’ve been traveling down the coast over the past weeks, so eating mostly fresh fish one way or another. And pizza every once in a while to keep the girls happy.
Sorry Mort, vacations are at full force. Can't really muster the time to post anything significant :P
Anyone want to help out with a perception check?
How was the baguette?
Ah. Okay. Serving hatch seems like most likely place.
The baguette turned out a little dense and not crispy because I don't have a commercial oven that can spray water on top of it. I also got stressed out on missing a run yesterday as I was told to remain close to a comp and contactable so I binged the office sweet snacks =(
Gah. Then today for lunch I hauled myself out for a 6.35km run. Was doing an average of 6 min 21 secs /km, I signed up for a 10 km shape run in August so I'd better make sure I can go that distance.
Wouldn't your phone count as close to a comp and contactable? I do not like being on call (or running but that is a different type of dislike :)
The owners of the company have my number and can call me anytime if they have a question about anything, but they rarely do so. It is not often a software issue can't wait until the next day.
For the bread, could you open the door and spray water on it, or does that ruin it even more?
I can't edit stuff very well on phone. Something involving word on Google not allowing editing, and I may need to churn out resolutions in a hurry.
You can spray water on bread, but it's not very effective. As per this article
You cannot keep opening the oven to spray as the heat loss will screw up the bread baking.
And the other methods, other then covering with an aluminium pan, all involve some degree of risk from steam burns, or possible oven damage if the water hits the glass.
Hmm... yeah I see. More effort with little effect. And burns and oven damage is worse. So I understand now. I believe we have a dutch oven. But haven't used it in forever, since my wife became anti-gluten.
My children failed their driver's tests. But we will go again in a few weeks, after more practice. My son is very literal. He was told to park on the curb, and while he thought it was odd, he did his best to get partially on the side walk. I blame their teacher... which is unfortunately me :)
It's all practice, especially parking. I took 3 tries to pass mine, some lucky fks get it right on the first try. I also rammed down a lamp post before I got my drivers licence, for pressing the accelerator instead of the brakes so I have my fair share of screw ups.
Is your wife anti gluten due to allergies or is she doing it for health reasons?
Allergies. It does bad things to her stomach.
I grew up in a rural town that just had us drive around in a square and that it is, so I was one of the lucky fks and thus had no idea what they needed to practice. But Now I do!
I did the same on my first accident. The accelerator instead of the brake. Mine was a tree, about two weeks after I got my license.
Ah OK then you'll need to look into gluten free flours. Or maybe take the opportunity to go healthy by having zucchini boats for breakfast;) On the first baking, if you don't bake that long(20 min on skin side, 5 min on flesh side), they don't get mushy on reheating.
Ow. I hope the accident wasn't too bad =(
I was young so it felt bad at least. How about yours? Taking out a lamp post doesn't sound minor.
We love zucchini boats :) And use gluten free flours quiet often, BUT gluten free bread does not compare to gluten filled bread. Doing without is often easier than being reminded of what you are left with. At least it is her thoughts.
Eh, it was a beach buggy (don't ask what I was doing driving a beach buggy without a license =P), so my Dad reversed the buggy, then we set the lamp post up again and drove off.
Yeah I like to put it this way on healthy eating, one door closes, another opens. Like zucchini boats, slurp! Need to work out the eggplant lagasna someday as well =)
I figured I liked pizza because of the toppings, so if I could put the toppings on another vessel, I would be good to go with it.
Hello all, I'm sorry to have disappeared so suddenly. I've been struggling with my mental health for about a month and things got so overwhelming for me to handle everything. Thank you very much for your patience, I'm still a little tender, but I want to come back and keep playing.
I agree sir, anytime, happy to listen. And doubly happy you are back.
Final stretch of my vacations guys - slowly returning to posting ;)
Good to have you back Kilarra!
Urgh. Today wasn't a very good day for culinary experiments. I tried to make water chestnut pudding, but the pudding refused to set as I used the wrong green bean flour (hey, the store owner said it could be used for deserts!). Then I added too much yeast into the baguette dough and it refused to keep shape, turned out flat.
Those in the recipe picture look amazing :D
I'm not a huge fan of pudding - I like about two of them: one which my grandmother used to cook, think it had only eggs and sugar in it... And another one which adds some sort of coconut base - my father used to cook that one.
Base thing for me is I am not a fan of the pudding consistency - but those I was talking about are more... Dense? Love them.
Thanks guys for welcoming me back. I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. Just time and understanding is what I'm looking for. I'm not pleased when I disappear like that, but I am supper appreciative when I'm welcomed back.
I am also appreciative of supper! :)
Very good to have you back, sir.
Also this week sat is Shape's 10k training run. Hope I'm up to it! Should I try for 6 min 30 secs per km or 7 min per km?
All those numbers are mind boggling to me Mort :D
I would say push for the extra effort! Do it!
K. I'll aim to complete 10 km in about 1h 5 min. I have been trying to gauge my run speed accurately. 7 min 30 s to cover 1 km is definitely too slow, the last time I tested myself last year it took me 1h 12 min to cover 10 km. Again that was my very first 10k run and I didn't dare to push too hard.
Yesterday I was running along at 6 min 21 sec/km.
I appreciate supper as well. Had one consisting of apricots, milk and oranges last night.
Ah fark some people are being idiots about contracts. I told them to produce a contract so I can draft the termination letter, all they can do is produce service ID and contract start date. And when there is a change in service ID, they don't tell me, and now the vendor asks us to change the service ID number when directors are not around. I told them to check everything was in order the day the letter was signed and apparently they couldn't be arsed. Look, I function like a robot. Key in a certain input, you get a certain answer. If you get the details wrong, it's not my fault, is it?
I admit I am feeling the same regarding some of my games also (this is not one of them) - a mixture of things really that are causing it.
But mostly I guess the feeling people are only playing as if it was a chore, posting as if it is a task to get out of the way as quickly as possible... And GMs that simply don't have their head in the game....
I'm just too stubborn to leave those games - just feel like I am quitting on people.
Thanks for letting us know Roz! Life is sometimes like that.
So, you finished in almost under an hour?
