End of my cooking week

Written by Kristi Ondo, Community blogger | May 4, 2012 12:25 AM

Quick last post for the week. Tomorrow is pizza night, therefore tonight my final night of cooking for the week. While many women would rejoice at this, not so much me. I really enjoy cooking and trying new flavors. However, I have noted that all three of my first posts for you were original(ish) recipes – nothing fun or new, no experiments in our house. I just received a new cookbook in the mail, so I have some research material for next week!

Thursday Stir-Fry


Boneless skinless chicken thighs – marinated in next three ingredients

Dried ginger


Kosher salt and pepper

Sliced peppers

Carrots, chopped into rounds (and then sliced in half if you have little ones)

Sugar Snap Peas

Minced garlic

Minced ginger or ginger paste

Vegetable oil

Basmati Rice - make the switch away from minute rice if you haven't already. it is worth it, trust me.


Cook rice according to package directions.




Bring oil in large sauté pan or wok to medium high heat, with garlic and ginger. Throw in veggies and chicken. I like to cook it all at a high-ish temperature to get a nice sear without making the veggies soggy. For most chefs, putting the chicken in first for a while also works well.



Serve over or beside rice with sliced green onions and soy sauce.




It was a hit with the little one!
