If you're not Maltese, I'll let you in on a little secret.
Imqarrun il-forn is basically Timpana without the crust.
The crusty edges are also delicious.
drenched pasta is just the best.
Then you know it's perfect.

So last month we enjoyed a summer vacation in Ottawa.
Before we left I had filled another whole big blue roll out cart.
One more cartload of recyclable stuff should do it.
I'm not in a race.
It will get cleared.
Full Moons, especially in sensitive Pisces, are well-known for their power to strengthen emotions… Add intense Pluto's change of direction… you have a potent mixture of energies that may leave you feeling overwhelmed…

Well, to paraphrase that..
The mouth wants what the mouth wants.
And sometimes the mouth wants some good old KFC chicken.
All was going well, until the little boy started to cry.
Seems he was homesick and wanted a taste from home.
His Dad comforted him and explained that Kentucky Fried Chicken is only available in Fiji, not here in Canada.
To the delight of his nephew, Singh told them that KFC is available in Canada.
Happiness was restored when everyone sat down to a bucket of chicken.
Chefs try to outdo themselves in combining new and exotic flavours.
But sometimes a person just wants an old favourite.
Here is a spice recipe that comes close, more or less.
Along with the spices the Colonel uses a pressure cooker.
You're on your own for getting one.
Also good luck finding a cardboard bucket.
If you just want to cook a couple of pieces of chicken, just use 1 egg.
Also use just a part of the mixture and store the rest in a jar.
Do not toss any leftover spice mixture back into the jar.
If the juices from the raw chicken come in contact with the unused spice mixture things could get nasty.
Yes, even if you store it in the fridge.
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon tarragon
1 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon chives
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
2 Tablespoons Accent (MSG seasoning)
1 whole chicken
1 large egg
1 Cup buttermilk
Then dip the chicken pieces into the flour mixture in the bag.
Make sure each piece is completely coated with the flour.
1/2 Cup lard
Brown the chicken slowly, a few pieces at a time, uncovered.
Once browned, return the chicken to the skillet.
Cover the skillet and cook on a very gentle heat, turning occasionally,
until the chicken is fully cooked.
Place on paper towels to drain out the excess oil.

And, yes, you can use the red, yellow and green bell peppers that are sold together and called traffic light peppers.

A new Moon is always a wonderful time to start something fresh, or perhaps begin the next phase of a project you've already started. ...infuse your projects, dreams, and goals with Virgo's practicality to make more progress this week than you have in awhile!

While I was growing up, Pop had a garden.
