Weekend…come back!

I can’t believe how fast this week flew by already! I meant to post this weekend blog earlier in the week but it has just been so crazy I haven’t had the chance to until now.

I won my tennis match Saturday! yayy! I also managed to check off some items on my never ending “to do” list and relaxed with the husband and pup.

I found the most darling cookie cutters on a trip to Homegoods. Aren’t they just precious? They are used to make angel wing cookies that hang off your mug!

There’s nothing sweeter than a late afternoon snack of pearl embellished angel wing cookies with a hot mug of chai tea latte. 🙂

Lazy Sundays are the best! Even Chloe thinks so!

 

A Sweet and Sour ending…..with chicken that is 🙂

Last night Will and I sat down with an ice cold beer and chowed down on homemade sweet and sour chicken while watching episodes of Weeds. (Yes, I realize that I am a a little behind the curve. We finally got to season 3 though and it is SOO good!)

1. In a small bowl measure out the ingredients for the sauce and set aside. (Note: I didn’t have chili garlic sauce so i just used sriracha sauce and freshly minced garlic)

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon chili-garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger ( the best way to store ginger is to freeze it. a ginger root costs less than a dollar and will last for months in the freezer. Freezing it will also cause it to grate like snow and make it super easy to use)
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

 

2. Cut your chicken into 1 inch cubes and lightly brown in a pan with 2 tbsp of hot peanut oil. Set aside and saute your veggies in the remaining oil for a few minutes. I used bell peppers, snap peas, scallions, and mushrooms for a brightly colored mix. You can use any of your favorites!

3. Mix in your chicken and pour the sauce over the whole dish

4. Finish off the dish with a sprinkle of roasted sesame seeds or crushed peanuts and a side of white rice. We like sticky rice. (Note: the shorter the grain, the stickier the rice) My husband LOVES sriracha sauce with almost everything. Sriracha is a type of Thai hot sauce made from sun ripened chiles and garlic. This is what is drizzled on the side of the plate.

5. Crack open a beer and enjoy!
