Bouquet of flowers

 Hi guys,

We have a new challenge starting today over at MAWTT, as it is the first of May! Our theme for this month is a bouquet of flowers. I have gone a little rustic with mine :)

I layered a beaded flower stem behind a bouquet topper to add extra interest, and then simply layered a sentiment on top of this to make a CAS card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Modsquad - Flowers
allsorts #622 Spring Blossoms
ikesworld #143 springtime

I also have a recipe to share with you today - for a Chicken Jalfrezi.

First of all chop 2 peppers, 1 onion, 1 garlic clove and some ginger into small pieces.

Add some cumin seeds to a pan with 2tbsp oil and wait for the seeds to start popping. Then add the chopped vegetables to the pan and cook for 5-10 minutes or until the onion has started to brown.
Add 1tbsp curry paste (I used tandoori) 1/4 tsp chilli powder,1tsp ground coriander and 1tsp ground cumin to the pan and mix together. Also add a pinch of salt. Allow to cook for a further 5 minutes before stirring in some fresh chicken chopped into chunks.
Add a can of chopped tomatoes and 2tbsp chopped fresh coriander once the chicken has been cooking for about 5-10 minutes and stir through. Allow to simmer until the chicken is cooked through.

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz
