Pancakes and Lettuce...
Good morning! The lovely picture above is how our breakfast table looked in Hot Springs for THREE days in a row. Yum. It was scrumptious and I know that there are a lot of other more fattening foods we could have been eating (like cupcakes and cinnamon rolls) but eating like that has caused me to go into healthy eating mode. I made these lettuce wraps last night and they were actually really tasty. Tasted kind of like Pei Wei's lettuce wraps, and oh how we love those!
1 pound of chicken or turkey, cut up in small chunks
2 inches of fresh ginger, peeled, grated. (I just use ground ginger in a jar. 2 tea. Much easier.)
3 cloves of garlic
half a cup of chopped up water chestnuts
4 carrots, shredded
half cup of chicken broth
2 Tab. Sesame seeds
Heat large skillet to medium and cook chicken
Add in garlic and ginger, chestnuts, carrots, broth and sesame seeds
Spoon into lettuce and eat like a taco.
Oh and...this little item has been my best friend for the past few days.
This pollen is about to do us in. Whew...
Have a wonderful spring day! Blessings! Amy
