Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken Fried Rice

I’m having one of those real lazy days where I want something on the dinner table without having to put a lot of effort into it, or shopping for that matter.  I know, I’m lazy but don’t we all have those days? I don’t want to order take-outs either —ick! After all the eating out, take-out is the last
thing I need.

Zucchini Ribbon Salad

Zucchini Ribbon Salad

Today is National Zucchini Day! And in celebration of it, I decided to make a simple zucchini salad.  I remember a few years back, I went to a restaurant in Napa Valley where they served a delicious zucchini ribbon salad.  This is my re-creation of it at home.  Are you eating zucchini today?

Chicken and Asparagus Stir Fry

Chicken and Asparagus Stir Fry

I love a good stir-fry at home.  What’s not to love? Veggies, pieces of meat, quick, and it doesn’t weigh you down after eating.  I love veggies of all kind but I prefer mine cooked rather than consuming it raw, like a salad.  The only drawback about making stir-fry at home is all that spattering.  Ugh! I hate getting spattered.  I know there are spatter guards out there but I’d rather not add more dishes to wash.  Yes, I’m lazy too, in case you haven’t picked up on that.

I used white chicken meat here, but feel free to use chicken thigh meat if that’s what you’re into.  This dish is still delicious the next day so your lunch is covered. 🙂 Have a great Tuesday!

Honey Meyer Lemon Olive Oil Muffins

Honey Meyer Lemon Olive Oil Muffins

I’ve been wanting a KitchenAid Stand Mixer for the longest time.  Chris promised I can have one when we moved to our new house.  And he’s a man of his word. (Thank you sweetie! :))  I found a really good deal at Costco last week and picked one up.  I finally broke it in today and made a batch of honey meyer lemon olive oil muffins.  It took less than five minutes to mix once all the ingredients are in there.  I can’t believe I went on this long without this mixer! It’s totally worth it and my favorite appliance in the kitchen right now.  I look forward to making more goodies soon!
