Pineapple Chicken

We did a small grocery shop this past weekend for some meat and essentials rather than our usual big monthly shop. We have some expenses coming up this month that we wanted to be sure we had enough in reserves to pay for. But, with boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $1.59 a pound? Couldn’t pass…

Moo Goo Gai Pan – 4th Bloggaversary

Four years ago on January 24, 2012, I challenged myself to a game where I would make a different meal each night for my family. The rules I set for myself were simple. I had to post a picture the next day of our meal and give a recipe or in the case of old…

Kung Pao Chicken

I had a bit of extra time last night so I decided to make Kung Pao Chicken.  I stopped at the store on the way home and picked up green peppers, red peppers, green onions, soy sauce and peanuts.  I also picked up a few extra fresh ingredients for our next couple meals. But, I…

Chicken with Peanut Sauce

Third time will be the charm today, right? I have lost this post two times already and my revert to saved is not working to restore what I have saved. UGH! But, here we go, again…. We are back to the busy, busy school schedule just like everyone else. The one thing I am grateful…

Asian Salmon in Foil

Have you kept your resolutions so far? If you are like most of the world, no. I stopped making resolutions many years ago. But, I did like the idea of finding one word to guide your intentions in 2016. I immediately thought of three words (I always was an overachiever.) that I really liked but…

Ramen Asian Salad – Happy New Year!

I consider my real New Years Day the day my kids go back to school each year. I don’t know why but that has always felt like the beginning of a new year to me ever since I was little. I get very emotional and sentimental around that time of year. So, actually New Years…

Ground Beef Lo Mein

The temperatures are finally getting cooler here. The other morning it was 39 degrees even with the sun shining. Today we are starting the time of year with little to no sun. We are looking for comfort food and pasta does that for most of my family. I am not a fan of red sauce…

Korean Beef made with Quorn

I purchased this product with my own money. I am not in any way affiliated with Quorn. These thoughts and opinions are my own. Quorn is something I had never heard of until my son decided he wanted to become a vegetarian. I was searching for a meat substitute to use once in a while…

Stir Fry with Asian Brown Garlic Sauce

A few weeks ago I hurt my knee. Nothing big but it takes 6-8 weeks of resting it to heal. If it does not heal after that then we start talking surgery. It will heal! I am trying to stay off it as much as possible which is difficult. In and out of the car,…

Asian Garlic Tofu Stir Fry over Chow Mein Noodles

I am just learning to cook with tofu. My son hates the taste of soy but I thought if I could mask it enough he may change his mind. He also does not care for the mushy texture so I bought extra firm tofu hoping that it would hold up enough for him to like….

Asian Sticky Grilled Pork Loin

Tax season is over. I am hoping life will now settle down. The problem is all the appointment that I have been putting off for the last two months have to be done now so there are doctors appointments, dentist appointments, eye appointments, hearing appointments and hair appointments all within the next two to three…

Chicken Stir-Fry with Garlic Sauce

Still dealing with the fall-out from the stomach flu in our house.  I thought mine would be gone in about the same 24-48 hours as everyone else.  Of course not! I am now going on my sixth day.   I do not want to feel queasy all the time. I started this post last week but…
