Potato Hash

Ingredients:

2 potatoes diced small

1/2 cup onion chopped

1/3 cup green bell pepper chopped

3 eggs

2 tablespoons cajun seasoning

1/2 tablespoon turmeric

1/2 tablespoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garam masala

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons butter

paprika *garnish*

vegetable oil

Season the potatoes with spices. Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Cover them in vegetable oil and fry on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until soft. Add onions, bell pepper and butter. Sprinkle a little paprika on top. Fry until they are soft. Drain 3/4th the oil.

Crack the eggs on top and sprinkle salt, pepper and cajun seasoning over them. Place the entire dish in the oven for about 7 mins or until eggs have cooked to your preference. I like mine runny so the yoke ooses over the potatoes when I cut into them.

Chicken Liver Pate

Ingredients:

1 lb chicken livers

2 tablespoons garlic chopped

1 onion chopped

1/4 cup sherry wine

1 tablespoon thyme

1 tablespoon ground sage

fresh sage *garnish*

1 tablespoon rosemary

1/2 teaspoon allspice

2 bay leaves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/2 stick of butter

avocado oil

Equipment: Blender

Make sure to clean the livers thoroughly. Rinse and remove gall bladder if attached and cut off any appearance of green color off the liver. This is bile from the gall bladder and very bitter.

On medium heat in a little avocado oil, saute in only 1/2 a stick of butter all ingredients. (except for the fresh sage this will be used at the end as a garnish). When your livers are cooked through then you can remove it from heat.

Drain about 1/2 the juices and then blend the rest until smooth. Pour into an small bowl. Use an herb like sage or rosemary as a garnish on top of the pate. Or by all means get creative with the presentation. I used sage.

Melt the remaining stick of butter and pour over top the pate. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to harden.

I added a few goodies to snack on and garnished the pate with tomatoes and chives.

Island Baked Chicken

In a large bowl, season the chicken liberally. Place it in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven 400 degrees. Bake chicken for 45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

I paired with yellow rice and pigeon peas, a fresh salad and fried plantains. Sorry, I put it in a container because I was running late to meet up with a friend for Game of Thrones.
