Seeing as it is Halloween I am bringing some guests and pumpkins to the Fiesta Friday Party #40, it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t.
My Boys Halloween Pumpkins
I was lying down on my yoga mat stretching my back with my eyes were closed. I had completely forgotten that I had given the boys their outfits. Something brushed against my leg and without me knowing they had crept in to my bedroom and were standing over me as you see in the first picture OMGGGG seriously, nearly heart failure time! The AIR was BLUE I was in such shock haha!!
Now a few fun Halloween images that I found
Jamie Olivers Pomegranate & Chicken Stew
I got this recipe originally from: Jamie Olivers Pomegranate & Chicken Stew
What I will say is this, this meal is super easy to make, but oh boy it gives the taste buds a rave!
It really is a taste that is a surprise to begin with, first mouthful ones eyes open wide and it’s a “ohh ooeer wow” moment, then pondering, another mouthful, get used to the taste and realise wow this is magnificent. That is how I will describe it, very unusual but very delicious.
I have included my pics and Jamies as his looks far nicer than mine:
• 1 chicken, jointed
• 1 tsp paprika
• 2 onions, sliced
• 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
• 1 red chilli, finely sliced
• 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander, plus extra for the rice
• 300ml tomato passata
• 4 tbsp pomegranate molasses
• About 200ml pomegranate juice
• Boiled rice and pomegranate seeds
main courses | serves 4-6
1. Heat the oil in a casserole over a medium heat. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and paprika, then brown in the hot oil for 7–8 minutes. Remove the pieces to a plate and set aside.
2. In the same pan, add another splash of oil with the onions. Stir well, being sure to catch the sticky bits at the bottom of the pan. Cook slowly for 15 minutes, till onions are soft, adding the garlic, chilli and the coriander for the last 5 minutes. Stir in the passata, molasses and pomegranate juice, season well, then bring to the boil.
3. Return the chicken with any juices to the pan, cover and lower heat. Simmer for 30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the sauce has thickened, checking often that it’s not sticking. Toss the rice with the extra coriander, then place the chicken on top and scatter with pomegranate seeds.
I hope you are all going to have a fun Halloween if you are celebrating or embracing it in any way!
