Father’s day


Today is Father’s Day and to be honest it was a lovely day, this morning it was a little chili I think around 6o degrees.  It is traditionally a day when my husband needs to prepare and cook for us as a family.  This morning we stayed in bed a little later than usual, we got up around 09h30 and just sat in the warm sin.  Around 12h30 we started with the preparation of cooking lunch or late early evening dinner.

The ingredients we are using and the recipe my husband like is as follows:
1 kg chicken pieces
30ml oil
2 onions diced
1 garlic clove
500g Brussel sprouts
500g eggplant
500g mushrooms
250 ml dry red wine
350ml coconut milk
6 large potatoes
salt
Chicken spices and aromat
1 packet of chicken soup
1.2 litres of water

Rice for the side dish and tomato salad

The fire was prepared and nice and warm when my husband put his black pot onto the fire, warming the oil and frying the onions and garlic.  It must be nice and brown then he added the chicken piece and started to brown the chicken, adding chicken spice and aromat.  It must simmer approximately 30  minutes while the chicken is starting to cook in its juices my husband added the potatoes, eggplant and mixed it in the pot adding some water.  Leaving this to cook on the fire for another 30 minutes.  Checking it every now and then, making sure it doesn’t burn or stick to the bottom of the pot.  The rest of the ingredients are added to the pot, mushrooms, Brussels sprouts and water with chicken soup mix.  Letting it cook slowly for approximately another 30 minutes.  Stirring every now and then.

To make sure the potatoes are cooked stick a fork in and see if it is soft and breaks easily.  Add the wine and close the lid for 10 minutes.

Remove from fire and set aside to stand a few minutes before dishing this up with some white rice and tomato salad.


Hmmm yummy this is so tasty, you won’t believe, this is a lovely dinner and we enjoyed this tremendously.  Hmmmmm
