I feel like I have all the makings of a project for the science fair. We have our “Purpose, Procedure, and Hypothesis”. It is all becoming very real as the eggs went into the incubator today (in my dining room). Here are some photos.
Doug and Kate getting ready.
Putting the Eggs in the Incubator
There they are. Turning into chicks, well nothing dramatic yet.
Inside the incubator, the eggs are kept at a precise temperature and humidity level which Doug has been practicing. The eggs are turned (electronically) to simulate rolling around under a hen. It looks SO scientific (circa 1975). It reminds me of the “flux capacitor” from Back to the Future. Maybe after we hatch some chicks, we can try our hand at time travel:)
And here is what went on in the kitchen. For dinner, I had put 6 chicken thighs (boneless, skinless) in a crock pot and poured a jar of tomatillo salsa over them that I canned last summer. It looked most of the day on low. After cooked, the chicken looked like this:
Then, I took tortillas and put goat cheese in mine, and cheddar in Doug’s.
I rolled them up.
I topped them with a Mango, Cucumber, Jalapeño salsa.
For the salsa, just chop the following:
mango, red onion, cucumber, jalapeño (no seeds), cilantro. Add juice of a lime and 1 tablespoon of olive or canola oil.
If you have frozen chunks of mango, you can let it thaw a few minutes and then cube it. That’s what I did.
Well, that about does it from the Kingsley’s.
