Pearl’s Rosemary Chicken

Pearl’s Multi-part Demo: Cutting a Whole Chicken, Rosemary Chicken, and Ginger Chicken Congee…

Wow, Pearl treated us to a three-part series on chicken, lots of it and no waste!
• First, she taught us how to cut a whole chicken cleanly, working along fat lines and showing a very neat trick to get more meat out of the wing sections. (You’ll have to ask her about it!)
• Then she used the thighs and drum pieces to pan fry a really fragrant dish. The secret is in her dry brine and fresh rosemary sticks.
• And the rest? To make a hearty chicken stock, of course, bones and all! She shredded the
boiled meat for congee, but the star of this particular demo seemed to be the chicken base. She added this simple ingredient for extra yumminess. (Yes, web search for Minor’s Chicken Base. We did!) The whole session was full of interesting tips and, ahh, the smells that you can just imagine! Quiz: How many chickens did you use for the demo, Pearl?

You don’t want to miss our next session in November! Jeanne Dea will teach us how to make one of her awesome desserts. More details to come soon!

…the anticipation of Good

“The blessedness of waiting is lost on those who cannot wait, and the fulfillment of promise is never theirs. They want quick answers to the deepest questions of life and miss the value of those times of anxious waiting, seeking with patient uncertainties until the answers come. They lose the moment when the answers are revealed in dazzling clarity.”

~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer

2 Corinthians 8:12-14

12 For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have.

13 Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. 14 At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality.

Often, we see things differently, but our purpose is to show compassion, respect, and acceptance in their differences. For we are made to be good stewards of everything God has created.

What’s Cooking Teena?

Pad Kra Pow (Holy Basil Chicken)

Pearl Yee’s Milder Version
Pearl used ground chicken, one green Anaheim pepper and one red Fresno pepper (all without seeds), and she substituted the Thai peppers, water, and sugar with 2 tablespoons of Thai chili sauce instead.
(Warning: When dicing fresh chili peppers, you may want to wear synthetic gloves) Otherwise, your fingers do tingle and burn!
For those who want no heat, just use a regular red bell pepper.

Ed pan-fried a perfect sunny side egg and layered it on top of the Pad Kra Pow over rice.

To cook Pad Krapow

4-5 cloves of garlic
10 fresh chillies
100g minced pork (chicken, minced beef, shrimp)
Pork stock
4-5 table spoons of Oyster sauce

1 table spoon of fish sauce
1 table spoon of soy sauce
A good pinch of sugar
A good handful of Thai basil leaves
1 egg

We will also need a pestle, mortar and a decent wok.

James Chapter 3

Do you know that the Bible says that we have the power of life and death in the words we speak! The words we choose to say have a direct affect on our relationship with others and with God. Tonight we will be exploring how our words can be used to build good and amazing foundations for our faith, family, and friends.

Blessings,

-Pastor Jonathan

… from the words of Dietrich Bonhoeffer…

“The Church is the Church only when it exists for others…not dominating, but helping and serving. It must tell men of every calling what it means to live for Christ, to exist for others.”

“Whenever Christ calls us, His call leads us to death.”

“When you read the Bible, you must think that here and now God is speaking with me.”

“Salvation came from Christ alone.”
