People, it’s Tuesday and I have cooked 2 nights in a row! I know, that probably isn’t a big deal, but in this house, with a 1 year old that suddenly always wants to be held when we’re in the kitchen, a hot cooked meal is huge!
Now, for my favorite kitchen gadget that made tonights meal possible: the handy dandy crock-pot.
Tonight I tried a new recipe: Honey Sesame Chicken.
Here it is on a hill of rice
I give it a 6 out of 10. My crock-pot cooked the chicken so well that it shredded when I took it out with a fork. Also, there is just something about authentic fried rice that I have yet to replicate. I tried cooking it with an egg, but it just wasn’t the same. They must have some special spice or something.
The recipe made plenty for Stephen and me to have a plate for dinner, and enough leftovers for me to munch on it for the next few days.
Has anyone else made anything new lately? It’s not often I break from my staple recipes (tacos, spaghetti, enchiladas, chili, and burgers), but it was a fun and tasty adventure. Oooh, maybe when Sarah is older we will have culture nights where we make foods from different countries. That would be so fun! Remind me of that in 5 or so years, okay?!!
Tonights meal was made possible because of Sarah taking 2 great naps today, so thanks kiddo.
