Day 50 was a 39 minute walk during my lunch break yesterday. It was one of those dreary wet fall days. As much as I love a bright sunny day, I think fall needs some days like this too. It was much chillier than I realized and I was wearing a short sleeved top - there was some arm swinging to keep warm :)
My husband and I are proof that opposites attract....mushroom lover and mushroom hater. Every time I mention mushrooms my beloved husband reminds me that they are a fungus, as is athlete's foot...and who wants to eat athlete's foot. Really?!! We somewhat playfully argue for a bit and then no mushrooms for me :(
A couple of weeks ago, when my husband had to drive a Friday night trip, I spent the day plotting my dinner. I had pinned this recipe quite awhile ago, but hadn't tried it yet because of the mushroom situation. I had some beef that needed to be used, so I stopped on my way home for mushrooms and snow peas (snow peas are not my husband's thing either, but he doesn't despise them like mushrooms).
First, I made the sauce. I added the cayenne because I like a little kick. I had planned to add sesame oil and though it made it to the ingredient picture I forgot to put it in.
This recipe is right up both our alleys - we love the cilantro/lime flavors. For me, it plays into how I like to cook (a little time on the stovetop and then finish in the oven while I do other things). I love, love my cast iron skillets. Searing the chicken in the cast iron skillet smells delicious and who doesn't love a good sizzle?
I was pleasantly surprised by all the options they had.
How do you avoid fast food when you are out and about unprepared?
