Recipe: Tasty Chicken Mince

 Tasty Chicken Mince Here is a rather nice way to cook chicken mince, and it's got numerous herbs and spices in. The ones I used in this I had in my kitchen, you can adapt according to what you have to hand. In a big pan put your chosen herbs and spices, then gently fry them for 5 minuites  Fennel Seeds Cumin Seeds Garlic Granules Salt Pepper Chives Parsley TIP:  grind your fennel along with the cumin, garlic and salt Then add a glug of water and soy sauce, bring to boil and place lid on the pan. Dice up the  vegetables and add to the pan, then bring back up to the boil then simmer. 2 Peppers 1 large onion Tin Chopped Tomatos After about 10 mins simmering, add your chicken mince and brown. Once the chicken is brown add a tin of chopped tomatoes. Bring to the boil again and turn off the heat, keep the lid on.  As with all one pot meals I make, I leave it for 6 to 24 hours for the flavours to combine and enhance the food. Serve it with either rice, pasta or maybe sweet potato chips.

Now I'm going to have to confront Dad about his house, there's no way I can set foot in there as the smell makes me want to throw up, didn't want to do that til new year. Oh what a Christmas this will be, damn it. I feel like I'm trapped between two dead end roads with no right of way. My downstairs neighbour said if my sister isn't talking to him she won't know I've been there. I can see where she is coming from though. I can't set foot in the house as it is anymore, it turned my stomach the other day, even a face mask don't help. I've decided to send my Da
