The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 160

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  Happy Monday everyone!!  Hope your week has started off well, I know mine has!

William is out of school, and already bored, but Mike gave him some things to do today, which helped a little.  He had to unload the dishwasher, get the mail, and read for an hour.  I know, that killed maybe an hour and a half of his day, but he handled it really well.  James was home with him, but he worked late last night, so he didn’t even get out of bed until noon!  Glad we’re not paying him to babysit, that wouldn’t work out for anyone!!  William does have a summer reading list from his new school, but it’s only two books, that won’t last long, although he does have to write a report on one of them, that could be a challenge!  Of course, we don’t have the books yet, but next week I hope!

Good days at work for both Mike and I, nothing earth-shattering going on, just normal work stuff.  Sorry, not a lot of excitement…

So on to the recipe of the day!  Tonight, I had some thawed chicken and some fresh veggies and a little leftover rice, so:

Oriental Chicken with Veggies

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

4 Tbsp soy sauce (because that’s all I had left, could have used a little more)

2 Tsp ground ginger

1 Tbsp minced garlic

1 cup fresh or frozen peas (NOT canned!)

1/2 cup chopped carrots

1/2 cup chopped green peppers

2 cups leftover cooked rice

Trim any excess skin or fat or tendons from the chicken breasts, and cut into bite sized pieces.  Put in large skillet with soy sauce, garlic and ginger.  Cook over medium heat until cooked through.  Add in veggies, and cook about 5 minutes, or until veggies are hot but not mushy.

Reheat rice in the microwave for about 3 minutes.  Divide into four servings, top with 1/4 of the chicken and veggie mixture, pour over a little of the sauce from the pan, and serve!

That’s it for today!  Sorry, not feeling as talkative, got things to do, so I’m off!

Until tomorrow, eat well, love well, live well!
