We call these meat or fish filled pastries "patties" and they are traditionally deep fried although I baked this batch. They are, I suppose, a little like empanadas. I used the last bit of leftover ground turkey keema curry as the filling, adding some mashed boiled potatoes to the leftover keema curry to extend it (and to make the filling stick together). I brushed the tops with a little milk to glaze them a bit before baking them. They made a nice tea time snack and I ate some for my dinner, as well!
Yesterday (Monday) was sunny, but, windy! The daytime high was supposed to have been 65F, but, it felt much colder than that. The loose roofing panels in the patio were being rattled by the wind gusts, but, the bags of mulch held them down! I was very thankful for that! I had a productive day; I dusted the living room and dining room, changed the bed sheets and did a load of laundry, made my meal plan for the week, cleaned the fridge, took the trash cans to the end of the drive way for pick up in the morning, watered the front garden (mostly to encourage the seedlings to grow), cooked dinner (sauteed salmon with onions and tomatoes, steamed broccoli, and a packet of flavored rice mix), did the dishes, and cleaned the litter box. I also called friend R to check on her.
Today (Tuesday) was sunny and still; it felt warmer without the wind. I brought the emptied trash cans back, made French toast for brunch, dusted the family room and my bedroom. During daughter's lunch break, we walked outside in the garden for a few minutes to check on the plants and get some sunshine and fresh air. Later, I made the patties and I cooked a chicken curry. I took some pictures of the process because I was asked if I had a recipe for it, but, I'll do a separate post. I thought I had done a post on how I make chicken curry, earlier, but, a search didn't bring it up, so, I might have only imagined that I did an earlier post! For dinner, daughter had chicken curry with leftover rice and broccoli from yesterday; I ate more patties and the leftover cucumber salad from Friday.
I called neighbor S to offer to bring her some of the patties, but, she explained that she was taking care of a family member who was having a cough and sore throat and she didn't want to risk infecting me. I thanked her for being so considerate and said I'll bring some patties over the next time I make them.
I am grateful for:
- Sunny days
- Monday's winds didn't do any damage to the house or garden
- Weekly trash collection
- Working appliances
- Productive days
Joyful activities have included gardening and baking.
