Love that wee poem :) Also known as the Selkirk Grace. For those of you who didn't know, it was Burn's Night yesterday and living in Scotland, its absolutely mandatory to celebrate all things Scottish! Last year I made some Cranachan Cupcakes. This year, its all about meat- venison to be precise.( Recipe under cutCollapse )
“Oh, didn’t you hear?”
“Didn’t anyone say
there’s a birthday this year?”
Cutting pockets into chicken fillets is something I have avoided like it was the devil. Every time I saw it in the method of a recipe I'd exclaim, "Nope!" and turn the page. I was sure I'd make a right mess of the meat and end up with filling all over my oven.
For Week 33 of my cook book challenge, I decided it was high time I challenged myself to give it a go.
Turns out I'd been avoiding this for nothing. It's really not as hard as it seems. While my cut wasn't perfectly symmetrical, it was functional. If, like me, you've never tried this before, this filling is a good one to start with. It doesn't become runny, so the chances of it seeping out of minor holes are slim.
I have a bad habit of skipping breakfast, but when the boyfriend is over it gives me reason to invest a little effort in what should be my first meal of the day. Here's one of the things I baked for our early morning noms.
