Ohhhh, I totally forgot what day of the week it was. The snow days we’ve had over the last couple of weeks keep throwing me off track, at least mentally, and yesterday I kept thinking it was Sunday, because everyone was home, and so this morning I had no idea WHAT day it was, and plus I was up at 4:29 am to play with fire and pig meat and then make cheese, and then at some point today it suddenly hit me:
CHICKEN B’STILLA DAY!
And then I went back to checking the fire and stirring curds, because while I am a swell multi-tasker, sometimes it pays to only focus on TWO things at a time, rather than seventeen.
So, here I am, still Friday, better a bit late than tomorrow. That’s what I say!
Now, Chicken B’Stilla.
I couldn’t wait to make this. I actually made it last Friday for dinner.
And, because I’m me and I need to make already complex things complexer, I decided that rather than make ONE Chicken B’Stilla, I’d make a bunch of individual sized little ones.
The whole process took me all day (on and off), but it was interesting and fun and the results were incredible.
So here we go…my photo essay of Chicken B’Stilla Day.
OH, these were so good!!
My kids liked them, Bill and I loved them, and best of all, I’d made eight (I used 10 chicken thighs instead of 8, and increased the ingredients just a smidge), so we had PLENTY.
