Times Like These
It's Sunday, the second day of 2011. Sometimes, the best laid plans don't always work out the way we want. No pork roast last night since none was to be had in the store last night. Grrrr. Instead, the big man made sausage sandwiches-mine with peppers & onions. Quite yummy.
However, dinner tonight was supposed to leftovers from the pork roast, so now I have to improvise. I defrosted some pre-cooked chicken thighs that I think will either turn into chicken stir fry or fiesta chicken soup.
Chicken stir fry
Chicken, cut up
Mongolian fire oil
Stir fry veggies
1 tsp oil for cooking
Heat oil in pan, add chicken & scallions. Cook throughly. While chicken is cooking make rice. Add stir fry veggies to pan, add fire oil (I splash a lot in because I like it spicy) and sesame oil. Serve over rice.
* note: I cook the veggies separately because the big man doesn't like them
The other choice for dinner tonight:
Fiesta chicken soup
1 can fiesta nacho soup
1-2 c cooked chicken, diced
1 can kidney beans, rinsed & drained
Other "nacho" fixings you like
1 can milk
Mix milk & soup together well in a saucepan. Heat over low heat. Add chicken & beans increase heat to simmer. Cook about 20 mins. Top with scallions & other nacho fixings.
