Sweet & Sour Chicken | RECIPE

Ingredients : Serves x 3 

  • 3 x Chicken Breasts
  • 1 x Red Pepper
  • Selection of baby Sweetcorn/Carrot/Sugar-snap Peas
  • 1 x Jar of Uncle Ben’s Sweet & Sour Sauce
  • 225g of Rice

Method : 

  1. Heat up oil in a pan, Slice up your chicken breasts and fry for 10 – 12 minutes, until browned.
  2. Chop up all your vegetables and pop them into the same pan as your chicken. Add in some water if sticking to pan, cook for 6 minutes or so.
  3. Add in your jar of Sweet & Sour Sauce and let it simmer for 10 – 15 minutes.
  4. While your chicken and vegetables are simmering away? Place your rice into a pot of boiling water, bring it back down to simmering heat, leave it cook  for 12 – 15 minutes or until the water evaporates. If you leave it on too long the rice will become mushy.

Hear The Noise Promotions | Hassan Ali – Chapter 2 – Deep Sky Objects |

Below is the first Promo video I have made, I enjoyed it but I have a lot more to learn, invest in sound equipment someday when possible, and I also realized that two camera’s are much better than one for event’s like these. Someday, it will happen.

“Digginit Productions” …Yep, that’s me.

Moving House

I’m moving again. For the 7th time in about 3 years.


Why?

Well. . .

I knew if I signed another contract for this house for another 6 months? That, this is where I have to be situated. I’ll have to stay here, && make it my base.

Luckily for me, I have lovely people who will take me in for a while so I don’t have to worry about contracts etc.

Why did I want this? Why move back in and be ‘less independent’ I guess?

I want to feel free in where I can go. I want to live somewhere for a month or so, go to America for 3 months next Summer, somewhere else for a few weeks, get an internship in Dublin/Cork. Do a course else where? Anything. I feel free/excited knowing all of this. This move is to prep me for the future. 

I decided the path I am going to go down in life? Is going to be Media related. Be it Acting (Ima work hard), Radio Presenter, Singer, TV Production, Journalist, Blogger, Vlogger, etc. This is what I want. So, I’m going to do it. Duh.

As I grew up? My main dreams were ‘personal trainer, soccer player, handball world champion, singer/dancer/performer‘. Those first three, were the ones I was destined for until I got hit with a heep of stress after my dad’s passing, I developed fybromyalgia, a medical condition, which, let me tell you does not like a lot of sporting activities and really hates stress. 

So I am going to look after myself, and go for what my body will let me, I know my limits, I’m beginning my pilates again to get stronger and I am focusing on all the great things there are in life. Many, many things!

Scrambeled Eggs & Toast | The Daily Grind

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal to go out to eat for. Pancakes, scones, pastires, fry up’s etc, what’s not to love!

I went to ‘The Daily Grind’ in Tralee town for breakfast, I got Scrambeled Eggs && Brown Bread Toast with a side of Relish. It was €3.95. A fair price for a breakfast, it was very filing, there was plenty of eggs, and it was great that they had the choice of white or brown bread as someday’s we differ as to which we’d prefer.

Scallops, Black Pudding & Chips | The Laurels

I have watched many a cooking show on the Tele. Be it Come Dine With Me, The Great British/Irish Bake Off, The Restaurant, Donal Skehan & so forth. Even if they cook/bake something I wouldn’t make myself? I enjoy seeing the process of how the pretty food are made. 

One thing I’ve have seen countless times pop up on these show’s are “Scallops“. I have literally always wanted to try Scallops. I never see them for sale, (mind you I have never particularly went looking for them), and I have never been lucky enough to see them on any menu.

Last Saturday, there were Scallops on the menu. Yippeee! I got 3 thick pieces of black pudding placed on apple sauce, surround by salad leaves with six scallops placed around the square black tile plate. It was presented wonderfully and it was delicious. The thing that made the whole dish particularly wonderful though? The apple sauce. It added a sweetness, so the meats weren’t overpowering as they are two strong tastes. The chips were also quite lovely. It was €13.50 and worth it.

Rhubarb Crumble & Ice Cream : Yummy Cafe

I went to Yummy in Tralee this week. I had just had my lunch when I met up with my friends who were going for food. 

So I said I would try a dessert or pastry of some sort so I wasn’t sitting there with nothing.

I choose the Rhubarb Crumble. There was also a selection of muffin’s, cookies, cheesecake etc.

I got a large slice, and they kindly offered to warm it up and add a side of ice cream to go with it.

It was €3.90, well worth it, as the portion was quite large. The staff were very friendly staff, the interior of the Cafe itself is very warm and welcoming, a relaxing environment and I enjoyed every last bit of the crumble.
