Better Day

It's a little bet better day, though something is kicking my butt and I'm sooooo tired. I think my thyroid meds are way way off.

Anyhoo, I got the start of my new book written and I'm very happy with it. I've been struggling with the opening. I think I've finally got it. Thank goodness.

I'm making the fam one of their favs for dinner today. Here it is:

Oven Sweet and Sour Chicken

2 boxes Rice-a-Roni rice pilaf
1/2 bag frozen peas and carrots
1 bag popcorn chicken
1 jar la choy sweet and sour
4 T butter

  • Cook 1 box rice with 2 T butter in microwave for 1 minute
  • Stir it and cook for 1 1/2 more minutes
  • Mix in flavor packet and 1 3/4 c water
  • Put in 9 x 13 pan
  • Put veggies over top of it
  • Cook other box of rice the same way
  • Put that over the veg
  • Mix a little
  • Bake at 400 for 10 minutes
  • Pull out and pour chicken over top (it will completely cover)
  • Drizzle the sweet and sour sauce over that
  • Bake 15 more minutes
  • Viola

Whoa! Talk about ironic, I was just thinking about making my version of Sweet & Sour Chicken yesterday...yours is much, MUCH simpler than mine tho!! ;)

LOL! I have a much more difficult version as well, but this one I can make regularly with no pain and make the fam happy. The other one takes more planning and about three times the time.
