Chebureki - Чебуреки


Chebureki are a common Russian street food, they can be a great appetizer or main dish. We can snack on them all day long or you can serve them with a soup or salad for a full meal.

I take a shortcut and use store bought raw/uncooked tortillas, and they taste oh so good!

Ingredients

-12 uncooked tortillas ( usually found near the fresh salsa, and cheese at the grocery store)
-1 lb chicken (2 chicken breasts)
-1 lb beef
-1 egg
-1 small onion
-3 cloves of garlic
-2 tsp salt   (or to your taste preference)
-1/4 tsp of pepper  (or to your taste preference)

To seal tortilla:
 -1 egg white
-pinch of salt

Instructions

1. Grind 1 lb of chicken, 1 lb of beef, 1 small onion, garlic cloves into a medium sized bowl.
I have this attachment for my stand mixer, which I have had for 10 years and it still works great!

2. Add egg, pepper/salt to the meat mixture and mix well. (I use my stand mixer to mix it well)

3. Take tortillas and place about 2 tablespoons of the meat filling on one side of the tortillas, leaving a 1 inch space at the edges.

4. Whisk together egg white and a pinch of salt.

5. Brush the egg white mixture around the edges and fold the tortilla in half, sealing the filling inside.

6. Pinch the sides together by pressing a fork all around the edge, to seal the filling.

7. In a heavy skillet, cover the bottom with about 1 inch of oil and heat.

8. Fry 2 tortillas at a time, flipping when golden brown.

9. Drain on paper towels before serving.


Enjoy!

Happy Mothers Day!


Happy mothers day Mommas!  I just wanted to take a moment to say that being a mom is the hardest job out there, and you should be proud of yourself for doing your best every day. 
I will not lie and tell you that it has been an amazing year.  It was probably my hardest year yet. With a newborn, both older kids had  minor surgeries and homeschooling I was in survival mode most of the time. 
I want you to know that there is a season for everything, I know it may be hard to remember that sometimes, but I want you to know that if you are experiencing a hard season, you are not alone. I understand, you are tired, emotional, overwhelmed.
Remember that everyone's kids make mistakes, everyone has marriage and financial problems, with Gods help you will work through it and this season will pass. 
God has called you to be their mom. There are so many amazing and rewarding parts of motherhood, even though they may feel like a dream during the hard seasons, remember that motherhood is the most important role that he has given you, and He never gives you more then you can handle because he loves you so much, He knows when you need help even before you even ask for it. You are important to him. Remember that. 
I am so grateful for being their mom, I can not imagine not having these three blessings in my life. 
Each and everyone of them brings me so much joy and happiness.
So I hope you have a happy mothers day my dear friends.
