Mini Curry Chicken Pies

Spicy chicken and potato filling topped with crisp puff pastry. Perfect for rainy days! 

It's the end of the school term- This hasn't been a great year for me- it's been filled with many challenges, many mountains to climb, to conquer. It started off with being around people I found hard to trust- so many new faces, so many different people, with so different personalities. I guess it opened my mind - to see that the world isn't made up of angels - it's made up of people with different goals in life, people with different beliefs, people with different backgrounds. 

But I've made new friends, familiar with more people. I've laughed more, smiled more, and loved more. I have to admit I'm not a sociable person- I'm quiet, sometimes I fade into the background to let people take the spotlight while I stand behind. I don't have many friends- people don't really know me - but I have a few great friends, who I can genuinely trust and believe in. And I'm happy- that's what matters to me most.  

The school year has been filled with so many things, I'm so happy it has ended. A year of taking up more leadership roles, in both my class and CCA, and I'm proud. Nothing beats the feeling of achievement, when people really recognise you for your efforts, and say the 2 words- thank you. 

The next 2 weeks will be spent in Beijing - away in the cold spending some time with friends and having some fun - huge break from the tough year. 

But today it's all about comforting curry chicken pies. Perfect for freezing and you can grab one when you need something to spice up your life :P
