Brr! This morning felt like it dropped 30 degrees over night!! Oh, wait…it did!! It was freezing this morning, here in Orlando, and I have heard that we are the only state in the U.S. that doesn’t have snow! That’s not fair!
(By the way, Hip hop was a success last night, and I am looking forward to going again next Tuesday!)
It took me and Win a while to get out of our warm bed this morning! He did not want to go out for his walk!
The cold did shake me out of my tiredness, but nothing gets you ready for work like a cup of Jet Fuel by Coffee People!
It definitely got me warm and ready to go!
My Cooking Resolution
If you read my post about my New Year’s Resolutions, you would know that one of my resolutions is to start improving my skills in the kitchen. To accomplish my goal to become a master in the culinary arts, I have decided to make one new dish a week, and post about it!
This week I found a recipe that Brett and I are both looking forward too! Lemon Chicken Stir-fry.
The only thing I changed up was the vegetables. To save money on buying the veggies separately I just purchased a packaged of the vegetable stir-fry in the produce department.
I started the dish by zesting a lemon and chopping the green onions. Next I prepared the chicken and cut it into 1 inch cubes. I whisked the soy sauce, lemon juice, and chicken broth in a bowl and set it aside. I cooked the chicken first, then moved it to a separate plate before cooking the veggies in garlic. When the veggies were fully cooked and tender I added the broth, and the chicken back into the pan, and wha-la!
The dish had a really light flavor, and the lemon rally added an interested touch to a stir-fry dish. If I were to make it again, I would probably use less lemon juice and add more soy sauce. The lemon flavor really over powered the soy sauce, and the dish ended up being really watery. Overall, I would say that the meal was a little bland, but definitely a really nutritious one.
