So, yesterday was another one mostly spent painting.
And I didn’t really think about dinner until a half hour prior to dinnertime.
Different day, same story!
The complicating factor this go-round is that I hadn’t tried a new recipe yet.
And it’s not like the earth would swallow me whole if I skipped a week, but you know, I like to stick with my self-imposed projects.
I mean, the whole point of this is to make myself try new recipes when I ordinarily wouldn’t.
So, I flipped back and forth thru my ATK Quick Family cookbook, waffled a bit, and decided on these chicken lettuce wraps.
I sent Joshua to the store with a small list (ground chicken, ginger, lettuce, water chestnuts), so he shopped while I did another coat of paint.
I’m pleased to say that everyone liked these. Woohoo!
Sometimes, chicken recipes can be bland, but these are seasoned with hoisin sauce, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, and plenty of fresh ginger and garlic.
They were quick and easy, and the only thing I’d change is that I’d look for a head of Bibb lettuce with slightly larger leaves, as this head made for rather bite size wraps.
And I’ll definitely double this next time because lettuce wraps just aren’t that filling, and we had no leftovers for Mr. FG’s lunch.
So! I’m happy I persevered and picked a new recipe to try because now I have a new one to add to my regular rotation.
