I'm bored with myself.
I hate when that happens.
Time to try something new.
How about discovering the secret to making
African meat pies?
African meat pies, also known as, "Samosas", are crispy
little pastry-filled pockets of hearty beef, chicken, or
vegetables. Since this was my first attempt, I kept
the filling easy. Ground beef, onions, tomato sauce
and lots of different spices filled each pocket.
The one flavor that stood out was Smoked Paprika.
I could have cheated and bought pre-made
pastry dough, but the whole point was
to try something new.
Once bundled, I tossed them into hot oil and fried
until golden brown.
I was very excited to see the results.
But......how would they taste?
After all that work would anyone
like them? Ted's a no-brainer. He'd
practically eat anything I put in front of him.
Score: Mary -1, Nicolai - 0.
He saw onions and never even gave
them a try. Mary, on the other hand,
totally surprised me!
Meanwhile, poor old Blue waited
under the table hoping for Mary
to have an unfortunate accident.
They say necessity is the mother of
invention. I say, boredom is.
