This, however, was an awesome trail mix I picked up at a truck stop in California and thought it was worth mentioning. It was a house mix of raw pumpkin seeds, raw sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, raisins, peanuts, and I don't remember what else. I was impressed with it and had to share.
Back to reality! We are home, unpacked and ready to start cooking again (YAY) so I am posting our first home cooked meal in the new house.
I did something simple since we don't have a ton of staples that one acquires over time. Here I present: Kung Pao chicken stir fry over noodles.
- Stir-fry vegetables
- Eggs (optional)
- Seasoning packet (Kung Pao)
What to do:
- Boil water in a pot for the noodles.
- Heat skillet or grill and add fresh chicken breast, season to taste.
- In a skillet, heat oil (I used sesame for the first time). Once hot, crack eggs one a a time and scramble briefly.
- Add noodles to boiling water.
- Add fresh or frozen veggies, cook until heated through and egg is completely cooked.
- Mix sauce according to directions.
- Serve noodles topped with veggies, chicken, and sauce.
It's late in the season for starting a garden but hopefully next year many of these veggies will be home-grown. Until then, it will probably be TJ's veggies and meat.
We also do not have a microwave at the moment (I would like to postpone it for as long as I can) so some recipes might involve doing things the "long way" so if you want to zap stuff go for it, I will make note of shortcuts if I catch them.
Hope you all enjoyed your summer! Thanks for reading!
