Hubby Wants This Again Tomorrow Night!

I was looking around on Pinterest the other day and ran across a recipe that looked good.  I made a few changes and made it even better (in my opinion).  It was really easy too!  The best part is Hubby LOVED it!  He liked it so much, he asked if we could have it again tomorrow night.  HAHAHA!  No.  I have plans for something else tomorrow night, but we will have it again soon!


Thai Peanut Chicken 



1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon lime juice


4 tablespoons butter
1 (14-ounce) package broccoli slaw
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
2 cups cooked shredded chicken breast
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, chopped



Combine all sauce ingredients in small saucepan; mix well. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat until smooth and heated through (about 10 minutes).


Meanwhile, melt butter in a pot and add broccoli slaw. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender (8 - 10 minutes).  Add garlic and mix well. Add chicken and cook for about 10 minutes. Add peanut sauce to chicken; stir to coat. Serve over a bed of white or brown rice.

These are the leftovers (aka: lunch).

Channeling Chick-Fil-A

I drove past Chick-Fil-A on my way to the grocery store today and started craving a yogurt parfait.  Usually I crave chicken.  I don't know what happened this time.  Anyway, while I was at the grocery store, I passed the strawberries and blueberries and they hopped right in my buggy!  So did the yogurt and granola.  It was amazing.  When I got home, I had everything I needed to make my own yogurt parfait!  I can't wait to finish dinner tonight!  It was hard not to dig in to one while I made them.  This will make a great dessert in the summer since there is NO COOKING INVOLVED.  Which means, no extra heat in the kitchen.  It's like they say; if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen!

Yogurt Parfait

1 cup of vanilla yogurt (I used Yoplait)
2 - 3 strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup blueberries
1 - 2 Tb. granola

Layer 1/2 the strawberries and 1/2 the blueberries in the bottom of the cup.  Spread 1/2 the cup of yogurt on top of the fruit.  Repeat.  Top with granola.                     Makes 1 parfait

♥ I cut the top strawberries to look like hearts. ♥
