I am fighting my anxiety over the coming weeks (election, Covid-19 spikes, flu, the holidays,…) by remembering what I am thankful for so much. This past weekend my daughter feised (Irish dance competition) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This is only the second feis in the past 8 months she has danced in. For a girl that is used to competing 2-4 times a month this was HUGE! She has learned new dance steps in the past month so she was not expecting to do well but she placed 3rd and 4th so she was happy. On the way home she was able to stop at a college she is thinking about attending for a short tour and meeting. These little things made all of us feel like things were almost normal like pre-Covid-19. Things may look very different than we are used to but the feeling of just doing these things is refreshing!
Verdict: Sesame Chicken is my daughters favorite meal from our local Chinese restaurant. I know she is either going to order than or orange chicken 90% of the time. This is a simple recipe that can give you the flavor of the sesame chicken without having to order out!
I served this with steamed broccoli and carrots on the side to complete the meal.
