Good Finds

I found this recipe in one of my Kraft Food & Family mags and made it last night. It's a no frills recipe but pretty good!

"Unfried" Chicken Fried Rice
1 Tbsp. veggie oil
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 (14.5 oz.) chicken broth
4 tsp. soy sauce
3 cups frozen stir-fry veggies (I used a little more)
2 cups Minute White Rice, uncooked

Heat oil in skillet on med-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 5 min. or until cooked through.
Add broth and soy sauce. Bring to Boil.
Stir in veggies and rice; cover. Reduce heat to low; cook for 5 min. (I had to cook it a little longer). Stir before serving. Sprinkle with 1 green onion, sliced, if desired.

Makes 4 servings (but more like 2.5 for us!). But I guess if you served egg rolls or something else with it, it would stretch it out more.

Yummy, Quick, Easy Clean-up, and Sean likes it - a recipe after my own heart!

Also, I found a new consignment kids clothing store. Kid to Kid. It's great. I like it because it was way more organized and not as cluttered as Once Upon a Child, and it was WAY cheaper. I got Hattie 3 fall outfits, 2 long sleeve shirts, a dress, and a pair of shoes for @ $25, and atleast half of my purchase was Gymboree. CHEAP! They also have maternity clothes. I didn't need to look at them, so I don't know how reasonable they are.
Finally, we had our inspection on Monday, and the house is in great shape, no major problems. Our option period is over now. I've started packing atleast 2 boxes a day. We have SO MUCH STUFF. I keep thinking about how I want to decorate. I don't have a vision yet of paint colors that I want to use in different rooms. I want to branch out and not use the same color schemes I had in our other house. I want a light blue room, but I don't know. None of my stuff goes with light blue really, but we looked at this one house that had light blue paint and dark concrete floors in the family room. Oh, I loved it. I want that room! The house had obvious foundation problems so it wasn't an option for us :0(.........Okay........I'm rambling.......... and naptime will probably be over shortly.......gotta go get a box or two packed!

1) Have you ever used the Kung Pao chicken seasoning packets? They are over in the envelope section, like with the gravy mixes etc. It is really yummy!

2) We don't have Kid to Kid here! Boo hoo! Probably a good thing tho.

3) I painted a light blue room in my old house - it was SO hard to find a blue that was not babyish. You get the sample home and they all look like nurseries. I finally found one with a lot of grey in it. Very soothing!

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'" Pope John Paul 2
