Monday is over! Today went by pretty quickly at work and I was pretty busy most of the day. I knew I was planning on running after work, so I had some cantaloupe and frozen mixed berries this afternoon to tide me over and I’m glad I ate this!
I did go running today – it was really overcast the entire time, but it was not raining! I honestly cannot even begin to post about it right now. I’m going to have to do a different post just on the run, so watch out for that tomorrow.
Once I got back from running, Nick was finishing mowing the lawn so I took my shower and got started on dinner. Somehow, this dinner turned out verrrrrry similar to my Peppery Pineapple Pork dish, and I didn’t realize it until I was eating dinner :) I liked it! But I basically had the same meal for lunch and dinner, with a few differences.
Sweet, Hot, and Sour Chicken
- 1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
- 1 lb. bag frozen peppers/onion mixture (mine had yellow, red, and green peppers and onions, but any fresh or frozen would work)
- 1″ fresh ginger, minced
- 1 scallion, sliced
- 1 tsp hot chile garlic paste
- 1 Tbsp soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp teryaki sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch dissolved in water
- 1 cup pineapple chunks in juice, drained
- Heat large saute pan over medium – high heat.
- Add ginger and scallion and let cook 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
- Add in frozen peppers/onions and let cook until veggies are thawed and heated through.
- Move peppers/onions to one side of pan and add chicken to pan.
- Cook, stirring a few times, until chicken is cooked.
- Stir in soy and teryaki sauces, chile garlic paste, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil.
- Stir in cornstarch mixture and let boil until sauce has thickened.
- Stir in pineapple and let cook until pineapple is warmed through.
We had ours over some brown rice that I cooked in the microwave. It was actually really easy – I wonder why I’ve never followed the microwave recipe before now! I needed another burner for the side dish tonight, and I didn’t want 3 things going on the stove at one time. I just can’t concentrate that much and not burn something in the process.
The side dish tonight came from Eating Well and we loved it!
I love Eating Well’s recipes – everything we’ve tried has been great. I had never really tried radishes until a few months ago, and I loved them so I’m trying to find recipes that use them.
Well…I am worn out – physically and mentally – but in a good way.
I am about to have 2 of my cookies I made last night and a glass of milk and call it a night. All in all, this was a great Monday :)
These cookies (if you’re wondering) are the Quaker Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie recipe but I used chocolate chips/walnuts instead of the raisins. Definitely not the healthiest cookie, but so so good.
Do you like radishes? What’s your favorite way to eat them?
