.....something new

Last Saturday when we couldn't scrapbook, Robin, Kathy and I decided to do some retail therapy. Since it was just after Christmas there wasn't really anything I needed to buy--and no extra money in the budget to shop! But what could we do to pass the time until it was late enough to have lunch (and our margaritas!!!). Kathy wanted to go into a T.J. Max, and I had never been in one before. I was kind of looking around for a new purse, just keeping my eyes open in case I saw one I really, really liked. The ones I did like were a bit too pricey for me. But, I did fall in love with all the colorful kitchen accessories. I found a heavy wok for stir frying---and it had a RED handle on it! Since I love to stir fry and had been using a large skillet, I decided I had to have it. It was only $20, what a bargain! And, I'm sure the red handle will make the food taste better!!
I tried it out this weekend, using a simple recipe that I came across in Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine. I improvised a bit, using the ingredients I had on hand. I used cut up chicken breast, green, red and yellow sweet peppers, olive oil, sesame oil, garlic, honey, rice vinegar any soy sauce. Served with rice---it was yummy! I love it because it makes a really quick meal with not much clean up. We'll definitely have this again soon!!! And, YES, I did find the perfect purse later in the day.....
