Stir Fry Sunday: A Cancelled Guest

10 Feb

I had a friend coming over Sunday evening, I warned her Sunday is Stir Fry Sunday in my world so if she came over at dinner time the food I would be offering her would be stir fry. She was cool with this so yay! Or not yay? Gotta say, I was pretty much instantly worried that (1) I would kill her with food poisoning or (2) it would suck and I’d be feeding her something disgusting. Neither was really something I wanted to happen so I almost chickened out and suggested the veggie soup I made but then I decided to suck it up and make the stir fry.

Turns out she had to cancel so I was making the stir fry just for me, which while it sucked she couldn’t make it I’m not gonna lie, I was a bit relieved I wouldn’t be potentially poisoning my friend. I mean c’mon, I like her, I don’t wanna make her sick! lol

This weeks stir fry wasn’t all that exciting, and yet it was tasty. 🙂

It had chicken that had been marinating overnight in a tangy Thai sauce, Mmm!

I was short of cash so the only fresh veggies in the stir fry were sliced mushrooms. The rest of the veggies were frozen Europe’s Best Imperial Blend, which is a mixture of edamame kernels, snow peas, bamboo shoots, shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, carrots and red peppers. I also added some grilled red and yellow peppers, the combo was quite good though I would have liked more water chestnuts.

topped with peanuts of course

I cooked some brown rice, added a bit more of the Thai sauce once the veggies were cooked then topped with peanuts cause I like peanuts in stir fry, and if that isn’t the perfect reason to put them in there then I don’t know what is lol. 😛

I’m getting better at knowing how much to make. What you see in the pan was split in two, I had half Sunday for dinner then the other half was my lunch Monday. When I ate it Sunday it was perfect but when I warmed it up Monday at work the chicken was a bit dry. The flavouring was still really good but yeah, the chicken was a bit dry and chewy…I don’t know if that means I overcooked the chicken or if that is just because of heating it in the microwave. Anyone know?

For dessert I had a mini Panettone, quite possibly the cutest thing ever! lol I love Panettone but they are always so huuuuge that I don’t buy one for myself when they come out at Christmas time but from work I got this mini one. Turns out the mini one is better than the large ones I have had in the past. It was more moist (generally I find them a bit too dry), was just the right size so I didn’t have to worry about weeks of eating the same thing everyday or freezing it and it was cute. Hey, there is something to be said for enjoying what your food looks like lol

Look how cute and adorable!

Look how cute and adorable!

So there we have it, one more successful Stir Fry Sunday, wOOt! wOOt! 😀
