Best Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Friday, July 10, 2020

I am attempting to eat better and such a sucker for lettuce wraps. They are so low in carbs, absolutely delicious, it's easy to make, and can be made in 20 minutes or less .I also love that can be made with things that most of us have in the fridge. I know most people make it with ground chicken but I preferred it with regula chicken breast, diced.
What you need:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound diced chicken
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
2 tablespoon worchestire sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable stock
1 tablespoon Sriracha
handful mushrooms
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 head butter lettuce
How to make it:
Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add diced chicken and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the chicken as it cooks; drain excess fat.
Stir in garlic, onion, Worchester sauce, soy sauce, vegetable stock, ginger and Sriracha until onions have become translucent, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, to taste and let simmer for about 7-10 minutes on low heat.
To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style

Faux Barn Windows

Thursday, July 9, 2020

When I got my condo it was same as all others, and came with standard window coverings and was kind of boring. So in order to give it some oomph I did a faux barn window.

Two sheet curtains
How to do it:
I took off the plastic panel that was on my window.
Place adhesive hooks or nail hooks about 10cm apart.
Place curtains on top. 

#bookofthemonth : The One by John Marrs

Tuesday, July 7, 2020

I picked this book up because Sarah (a co-worker) read it early in the year... okay it was SO good. The story line is immensely seductive, clever and unpredictable, modern and just the sort of book to get completely lost in.. especially when it could totally happen!

"How far would you go to find The One?

A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you’ll be matched with your perfect partner—the one you’re genetically made for.

That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.

Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…

A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences."

Over-sized blazers have been everywhere lately - everyone from Eva Chen to Chrissy Teigen is wearing them.
