weekend cooking

Holly and I had a bit of a girls day on Saturday, as Stuart was working and then going straight to a leaving party. So we spent the day doing a mix of useful things (weeding and tidying the garden, cooking the dinner) and fun things (eating ice cream, playing). Holly had great fun making chicken goujons, she loved dipping them in the flour, egg and breadcrumbs, and we got very sticky fingers! We also rescued these beautiful buttercups and forget-me-nots from the pile of weeds, we thought they were too pretty to throw away. After she was in bed I watched a film I had rented, called 'p.s. I love you', it was really good but a real weepy to watch on your own! Today has been a hectic day at work, I hope I get some sewing time later on : )

That's it you have made up my mind I am going to make Chicken Goujons. I have been wondering what to do with some chicken breasts and then I found some stale breads so wham bam!
