Potluck at work!

Tomorrow is our potluck at work and I am so excited about tasting different dishes! I love food, yes I do! I am a food-a-holic! (if that is even a word!)
I am thinking of making Spanish Paella, something different and I absolutely love everything about this dish…It has rice, chicken…what else do you want? LOL… Below is the recipe. I will let you know how it turns out! But it suppose to look like the picture below: lol


1 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 (125g each) chicken thigh fillets, trimmed, cut into 4cm pieces
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked sweet paprika
  • 1 medium red capsicum, chopped
  • 2 cups medium-grain calrose rice
  • 3 cups salt-reduced chicken stock
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • Lemon wedges, to serve
Cooking instructions:
  • Step 1 Place saffron threads in a bowl. Add boiling water. Stand for 5 minutes.
  • Step 2 Meanwhile, heat oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over high heat. Cook chicken and onion for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden.
  • Step 3 Add paprika, capsicum and rice. Stir to coat. Add saffron mixture and stock. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 18 minutes or until rice is just tender. Add peas and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Serve with lemon wedges.

Bourne Legacy - A review - sorta

Now that I finally found my blog, I can finally blog again! Yay!.  I know what you're thinking, "how can you lose your blog?". Well I actually couldn't remember the link and couldn't remember which email address I used to log in to blogspot...I know, I know, I am getting old!!! LOL.

So for my first post this year, I am going to talk about the Bourne Legacy movie.

3 reasons why I wanted to see this movie:

1. I  enjoyed watching the previous Bourne movies.
2. One of my favorite actors is in it. Yes, Edward Norton
3. They shot some scenes in the Philippines

The movie itself I will give a total of 2.9 out of 5 as there were 3 things that kind of made me "meh"...

1. Too many unnecessary chase scenes - just too many and most of the time, nothing is happening, they were just sitting on the motorcycle waving in and out of lanes.

2. The Bangkok dude they sent to kill Aaron died without a fight!!! OK, I was expecting that they will meet and then have a fist fight and Aaron will almost die, but in the end Aaron kills him. But no, the dude died because his motorcycle flipped!!! OK, sure Rachel Weisz' character smacked him with her helmet and went on hitting a pole and died or at least unconscious anyway.

3. The ending was OK, although it left it hanging, like there is a sequel.

So there you go - a brief and quick review of the movie.  Let me know what you guys think!

Take care y'all!
