Chinese Food

Some times we do a little too much of this –


Given that my girls are so picky it seems to be one of those take outs that makes everyone happy.  However, all my years as a Weight Watcher has taught me this is NOT the best choice.  Plus, I hate to see the day two leftovers be ignored sometimes.  Waste!

SO when I saw this great post on The Letter 4 for a simple recipe of Cashew Chicken it knew it was time to TRY to make my own.

Seeing as I love Cashew anything (especially popped on a chocolate turtle) this was a good recipe to start with.   I was very remiss in thinking I purchased the correct ingredients – I did not.  In place of bamboo shoots I bought Baby Bok Choy, and I had sugar snaps on hand in place of snow peas.  But I did get the chicken and cashew part right!  I even messed up on rice – but a quick boil of Angel Hair made the girls happy.

Check out those really fun clothespin chopsticks!  They are from CB2  – apparently this is the ‘young‘ version of Crate and Barrel – which explains why I did not know about the store!!

Recipe Review:  The girls liked it.  Lulu liked the chicken and peas, Coco was more into the cashews and the sauce.  SO I take that as a recipe that I can repeat again (with the CORRECT ingredients!).

If you have not tried to make chinese food before I would suggest trying this.  It was fun and easy!!
