After a beautiful weekend of sunshine I woke up this morning to rain, on top of the rain there are about a million clouds. They have yet to let the sunshine pop through for even a minute! Days like this make me SUPER blah. Especially with the time change and it being really dark in the morning. Instead of complaining and feeling daggers of hate from all of you folks who got hit by snow / garbage weather this weekend I’ll just move on to some food? The boy and I combined fridge stuffs last night and came up with a yummy stir fry that took all of 10 minutes to make.
In The Pot:
1 large chicken breast, sliced into strips of equal thickness
16 shrimp – shell removed
1 large green bell pepper
1/2 green zucchini squash
1/3 large sweet yellow onion
a bit of soy sauce
a bit of teriyaki ginger marinade
greek seasoning (the boy LOVES this stuff, like uses it for everything and I have definitely gotten in the habit of using it instead of salt and pepper when we cook at his place, it’s pretty delicious!)
Mix It Up:
Heat a large skillet over medium / high heat, add a little EVOO. Add in vegetables and chicken and season with greek seasoning (or salt and pepper). Once the chicken looks to be close to cooked through add in some soy sauce, teriyaki, and your shrimp. Give a good stir and cook until the shrimp become opaque. Each person gets 8 shrimp and 1/2 a chicken breast! Plus all the vegetables and glorious sauce! You can’t really see the shrimp and chicken because I counted them and they went in the bowl first!Grocery shopping this week I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any meat because I have a bunch of shrimp, pork, and soy sauce meatballs in my freezer so chances are stir-frys are going to be happening all week for dinner!
My lunches on the other hand are not even close to a stir-fry. I just can’t get enough of pulled pork lately! I put a roast in the crock on Sunday night and dressed up a little bit with some tomato based BBQ. I plan on making a mustard based BBQ hopefully tonight so that I can mix it up with the rest of the pork. The rest of my lunch today consisted of some cauliflower mash (SO GOOD) and avocado. Mmmmm.According to my training schedule today’s lunch time gym session was weight lifting. The boy had me doing some pull ups, flys, arm raises, and eventually some abs. Now if this rain stops and the ground dries a little bit than I should be good to go for rugby practice and the first outdoor soccer game of the season! Last but not least I have been depriving you guys lately of Sasha pictures so here one from yesterday!
