The bambino had a LOT of fun–And it was a bonus for us because they had free admission all day long to the museum. Free is always nice.
After we came home, I puttered around a bit, as I have cupcakes I need to make for a side project later this week. I’m kind of excited about that, as I recently found a baking supplier who offers cupcake boxes holding 1 dozen cupcakes WITHOUT making you buy a bajillion at a time, or without making you buy the boxes and inserts separately! You can buy the sets in increments of 10, 25 or 50! I have a set of 10 en route as we speak. They should be arriving Wednesday. It’ll also give me a chance to use more of those stickers I received awhile ago. I didn’t make anything yet–I researched recipes. I’ll start on that Monday.
And then it got to be dinner time. I was hoping to make some Lemon Chicken, but my chicken was not thawed completely. So instead, I made some Beef Stir Fry with Snap Peas.
I said when I made this with chicken, that I also wanted to try it with beef. I made a simple beef fried rice the other night when Jay was off at school board (I didn’t photograph it because it looked a lot like puke on a plate), and while the bambino didn’t want any right off the bat, I inhaled it. That chicken stir fry was so good, I thought I’d give the beef version a try.
This too was just as good.
Beef Stir Fry with Snap Peas is quick, easy and delicious. That’s the beauty of stir-fry meals. The one thing you want to remember is to prep your ingredients before starting to heat the oil, especially if you’re using meat that isn’t already sliced. I took the lazy gal’s route of buying mine already prepped, so the most I had to do was mince the garlic and halve the peas.
I made myself a pot of decaf, and I’m going to relax for the rest of the evening. Tomorrow’s going to be a busy day!
