I have a thing for drawers. I love drawers. I think that drawers are one of the best things a house can have. Needless to say, that I have lots of drawers on my own home. All of my stuff is mostly kept on a drawer. This week I have a plan of experimenting on one of my drawer I will put a full extension drawer slide to one of them and see if I could maximize its storage. Yes, I have drawer quirks and I’m not ashamed of it. We all have some weird quirks on all of us it just so happens that mine are weirder than the others.

Finding the best career for you is way trickier than we expected. Some of us don’t know what really know what we want as a career when we were young. Others are lucky enough to know instantly the kind of career or life they would want to live. For instance, others know already that they wanted to be a musician. It is not the stereotypical life choice but they already have goals as compared to those people who are still figuring out their career paths. Being a musician isn’t easy, and I know this because of some of my friends but what makes the journey of being a musician worth it is the fact that you are sure that that is what kind of life that he or she wants to get into.

• 1 1/2 lb boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes
• 1 piece medium-sized onion, minced
• 1 tbsp garlic, minced
• 1 cup potato, diced
• 1 cup carrot, diced
• 1 cup green peas
• 1/4 cup raisins
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
• 1 tsp sugar
• 1/2 piece chicken cube
• 2 tbsp cooking oil
• 3 cups flour
• 4 tbsp sugar
• 6 tbsp water, cold
• 1 piece raw egg
• 1 cup butter, cold
• 1/2 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp salt
Make the Filing by pouring the cooking oil in a pan and then allow it to heat-up. Once the oil is hot, sauté the garlic and onions. Add the chicken breast then cook until color turns light brown (about 5 minutes). Add water and chicken cube then simmer for 10 minutes. Put-in carrots and potatoes and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the green peas, raisins, and sugar then simmer for another 5 minutes. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Turn off the heat, drain the excess liquid, and set aside.
Make the dough by combining the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl starting with the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well using a wire whisk. Cut the butter into small thin pieces place in the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients.(the butter should be cold and solid before doing this). Add water gradually and mix all the ingredients thoroughly until dough is formed. You may use a pastry blender to ease the process. Divide the dough into individual pieces by grabbing a piece from the whole mixture and rolling it in your hand until a spherical shape is formed. Do this until all the dough is consumed. Set aside in a cool place for at least 20 minutes. Flatten the spherical dough py pressing it with your palm against a flat surface. Use a rolling pin to flatten it fully while creating a round shape.
Arrange about a quarter to half a cup of filling (the chicken that you cooked in the first few steps) at the middle of the flattened dough. Fold the dough so that opposite ends meet (you should have formed half moon shaped dough) then press the edges and seal. (refer to the video for the technique). After all the fillings are consumed, crack the egg and separate the white from the yolk. Beat the egg white lightly and mix a little water. Glaze the crust by brushing the egg wash. Put a wax paper on top of a baking tray or grease the baking tray then arranged the sealed dough’s. Pre-heat oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Bake the sealed dough’s for 25 minutes at the same temperature. Remove from the oven. Serve hot. Share and Enjoy!
