So after some hardcore shopping we were pretty hungry, we headed home and sparked up some snacks and Gin and Tonic (How English I know..)
After that mom started up the cooking machine again, whipping up another one of my favourites! Chicken escalopes with potatoe wedges!
We used turkey this time though, take a couple of turkey breasts and slit them down the middle, fill them with cheese and thick ham..
Then take a couple of bowls, one with milk, one with breadcrumbs, dip the breast in the milk, then coat it in breadcrumbs..
Then shallow fry the badboys so the breadcrumbs stick on and they are golden brown, but not totally cooked.
While you are doing that toss some potatoes in olive oil, pepper and salt, then stick em in the microwave for 5-6 minutes.
After that put them on a baking tray and shove em in the oven.
After they are part cooked, put the escalopes in the oven on a baking tray to finish them off.
Stick them all on a plate with some lightly boiled veg and voila! Lovely.
Wash down with LOADS of gin and tonic 🙂
After that of course because it was mom’s bday I treated her to some Strawberries and Cream, English classic dessert.
Take the strawberries and slice them (not too finely), sprinkle a little caster sugar over them and leave them to sit for a while (not to sweeten them, but it really brings the flavour and juices out).
Take some whipping cream and whip it up.
Add a little sugar if you have a sweet tooth, then serve together (With more gin and tonic of course).
And well that was the end of my mom’s bday, she had a great day, of course the best present was me being home!
Pubs, Pool, Guiness, Pie and more coming soon..
