Trying New Recipes
Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a great weekend and got to enjoy some time doing some of your favorite things. Our weather reminded us of Northern California and especially the coastal areas-lots of fog and drizzle. Yesterday was a quiet day, with the same type of weather. We did some housecleaning and I even made a new recipe for dinner. It is a gluten free and a low carb Orange Chicken. My daughter makes Orange Chicken all the time and this recipe looked pretty easy, so thought I'd give it a try. Instead of using regular flour, it called for Coconut Flour which I use regularly; I will say that I'd try another gluten free flour next time as I thought the texture was a bit grainy or gritty. I also forgot to get Sesame Seeds at the store, so substituted Sesame Oil and it was fine. I served it over Jasmine Rice and the sauce really worked well. I will have to tweak this in the future, but it is a good alternative to our regular chicken dishes.
Today I'm having a friend over for lunch; she's moving to Pa. to work for Cure International with her hubby. I'll be making Quinoa salad, with chicken and also have fresh berries. I want to get all caught up on their move; it will be Harrisburg's gain and our loss.
I hope you are getting some spring weather, because this week it will be raining and cold here; however by the weekend, spring should be back.
Blessings on your day! Noreen
