“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened”.
This is my favourite part from the bible. It´s the seventh and eighth verses of the seventh chapter of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament and is part of the Sermon on the Mount.
I had an unpleasant day the other day and I was just wondering “What do other people do if they had a bad day”? What do you do?
Do you mix a cocktail, have a shot of tequila? Do you make your favourite food? Do you listen to good music or have a nice relaxing bath?
When I´ve had a bad day, I´ll go to the kitchen and I let the chopping, grating and baking calm me down. It´s so relaxing, I guess I can totally compare it with yoga! It gives me peace. I usually chop onions when I´ve had a very bad/sad day because then I can blame the onions 🙂
Anyways, I guess I should include a recipe to this post, it is a cooking blog after all 🙂 I´ll go with a very easy recipe – chicken patties. Prep time is literally 15 minutes or less.
1 pound of ground chicken
1 medium onion
1 slice of thick bread
1/4 cup flour
butter or oil for frying
1. Cut onion into cubes, fry them with butter until golden brown *frying is optional, I just don´t like raw onions
3. Soak piece of bread in water for 5-10 seconds until it´s soggy, then squeeze the water out from 1/4 pcs at the time and crumble it to the ground chicken.
Serve with whatever you like, I served it with asparagus and mashed sweet potato. Patties will never fail you, they always taste good! It might of been the first food that I learned how to cook with my mother.
I started cooking at a very early age. We were making waffles with my brother, way before I went to school 😉 And I was given the task of pealing potatoes every now and then, starting I guess from age 8 or so 😉 I remember I did not like that at all 🙂 My father always commented how thick of a peel I was taking and I would never get married because of that 🙂 He was wrong 🙂 *You need to remember, it was on Soviet Union time!
