On the Menu this Week!

This week for suppers our family had:
Baked Pork chops
Baked Ziti
New England Boiled Dinner
Chicken Stir Fry
Pancakes and sausage
I agree that this time of year you can feel like you're in a cooking rut! The kids love the Pancakes and sausage and my husband is adjusting to the Breakfast for dinner idea. We usually do it about once a month and do Omelets, Waffles etc.. This time we topped the pancakes with chocolate chips, syrup and fruit.

Chicken Stir Fry

1 pound cut up Boneless Chicken breasts
Fresh Vegetables (Chopped/Grated Carrots, Snow peas, Broccoli etc) and/or
Frozen Vegetables
Water Chestnuts(optional)
Can of Baby corn (optional)
3-4 Crushed Garlic cloves

Heat Oil in skillet, add Chicken, chopped up Onion and Crushed garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the Vegetables, Fresh first then a couple minutes later frozen. Add Water Chestnuts and Baby Corn. Mix all together and cook until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through. Stir Fry sauce is optional also. This is great served over any type of Rice.

I've always loved Stir Fry but have never made it myself... I think I'll give this recipe a try! Thanks for sharing your menu...
