Try this Sweet Chilli Lime Chicken for dinner. Takes just 15 minutes
I stepped back after my handy work and looked at him from a couple of steps away. If I could run believe me I would have. My partner and I had been travelling around South America for six months and we needed a hair cut. I just have no idea why he believed me when I said I could cut hair……..how hard could it be? Famous last words, it was very hard. He looked like a one of the Beatles only they were fashionable in the 60’s. I covered his protests by saying that he would blend in with the rest of the Ecuadorian’s, especially if he wore a hat.
I’ve gone back to cutting hair again lately but only on myself. Not style cutting or anything like that, just a little trim between cuts. My hair cut is very short in quite a messy style and it’s only parts of it that become overgrown and unruly, like, weedy bits, so I have taken to giving it a bit of a trim between cuts.
A friend commented the other day that I had had a cut and even went to the extreme of telling me it looked nice. Ha, I said , it’s a selfie. She looked surprised . I confided that in the last 3 times I had had my hair cut I had given it a bit of a trim between salon visits. I justified myself by stating I must have done a good job or my hairdresser would have said something. She laughed till I told her to stop, what was the joke?. And it was funny she was right. My hairdresser may not have said anything not even suspecting that I may have cut my own hair ( because who does that anyway- unless they are traveling around South America?). Her reasoning was solid.. he may not have said anything because he may have been thinking …
“I must have been on crack last time I cut Tania’s hair. It is a terrible mess”.
There is no way that he can say anything to me. Imagine:
“Tania , your hair is short and long and funny in all the wrong places. I must have been very hungover or having a bad hair day(!) last time I cut your hair”.
THAT is not going to happen. So it seems that I have and will get away with a little tweaking. Unless that is, I get a bit too confident. I have learned a valuable lesson… my former partner had a great ability to face the world with a really dick haircut.
This 15 minute chicken dish IS easy. There’s only a small amount of cheating involved and that’s the use of sweet chilli sauce . Make it in the fry pan and that’s that. Serve it with rice or quinoa or rissoni or just as it is.
