BOK CHOY, CHICKEN & MUSHROOM STIR FRY

Have I got a healthy and flavorful recipe for you! My sister-in-law gave me this recipe and uses it as a side dish but I decided to add chicken and make it a main dish & serve it over rice for everyone but me. I was just fine with what was in the skillet sans the rice but I know the rice added a hearty bottom for the guys in the family. For those of you that don’t know, bok choy is nice and mild. It’s the sauce that gives it so much flavor. I had never heard of the shoaxing rice wine but found it easily on Amazon. It’s a wonderful rice wine that is red in color. Here’s the great thing about this recipe, it makes four servings and each serving only has about 150 cal.



What You'll need

Bok Choy, Chicken & Mushroom Stir Fry
INGREDIENTS 
1-pound bok choy
2 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded or diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon ginger
6 oz. button or Cremini mushrooms, chopped
2 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine* (BUY HERE)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1/8 teaspoon each of salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS 
Trim the bases of the bok choy and separate leaves rinsing and drying carefully. You could use a salad spinner for this. Heat a large skillet or wok over medium high heat until hot. Add the olive oil, garlic and ginger. Stir and then immediately add the mushrooms and stir fry until they begin to brown, about two minutes. Add in the rice wine and cook for another 30 seconds. Add the bok choy (leaves & stalks) and cook, tossing until the leaves begin to wilt, about one minute. Add in the soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper tossing often until the bok choy is tender crisp about another two minutes. Add in your shredded chicken, toss to coat and serve immediately. 

Before the chicken... Boo Choy kind of wilting in the pan





HAPPY TASTY TUESDAY


EASTER TIERED TRAY

It’s baaaaack! Filled with bunnies and spring cuteness! And do you notice anything else? I got a new tray! I love the one I had, but with the colors of my house, I was just really craving to get a white distressed one so this new one is exactly like the old one and now I have two decorate, oh no! AND this tray now comes in black too!!



 Back view... I just love the pink bubble glass from Hobby Lobby



Once again, most of the stuff on is from Michaels Crafts, Hobby Lobby, Wally World or things I already had on hand. 
 Those pink and green things are little napkin rings I used as mini wreaths.


 Remember I used the little pink easel and stands for the Mini Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes




I just stuck a napkin ring inside my mini tobacco basket wreath.







I took some of the felt bunnies off the craft clothespins and used double sided tape to sick on on the vase and one on the easel.

I’m actually really happy that Easter is later this year so this goodness can stay out longer. I’m just loving all the spring colors and to think I originally wasn’t going to decorate for Easter. 
Now, what are your thoughts? Do I decorate it for Memorial Day and leave it up to Fourth of July or do I do a summer theme?

FRIDAY FAVORITES....HELLO SPRING

It’s Spring, It’s Spring, we’re gonna get some sunshine this weekend, yay and it will feel so good even if the high is 50 degrees and it’s back to winter next week but I will take what I can get!!! I hope your weekend is fabulous and kickin’ off the Spring season right! 

1. Our Sweet Niece Goes Green
Spring Break for our kids meant tropical destinations and boy did they have a ball but for our sweet niece, Myka, it was giving back and it meant caring about our environment and we are so proud of her. It was called an alternative spring break where she and some other college students headed down to Austin, Texas to learn what it means to be food secure and how local farms grow sustainable foods. They helped the farm prepare for the spring season by planting vegetables and helped harvest their produce that was to be taken out into the local community. And they too had a ball!!


2. Mammo
In keeping my health on track this Spring, I had my mammogram this week and next week is my yearly! So important girls! And the results were fine, whew!
