Super Simple Stir Fry
2 Carrots–shredded with a vegetable peeler
1 Green Bell Pepper, cut into thin spears
1 small purple onion, coarse chopped
Leftover Chicken or Turkey, pulled from the bone
3 gloves Garlic, diced
1 Tsp Dried Red Chili Flakes
2 Tablespoons olive or sunflower oil
2 Cups of dry, white Rice (with 4 cups of water for cooking)
Put 2 cups of dry rice and 4 cups of water into a pot, add a pinch of salt, and cook at medium, boil for 4 minutes, turn off heat and cover, allowing the rice to finish (or you can use a rice cooker)
Place vegetables, spices, and oil in a skillet, stir fry on low heat until half way cooked,
Add Leftover chicken-turkey and stir fry with vegetable mix until vegetables are tender but not soggy
Put a scoop of rice on each plate-bowl and top with a portion of the stir fry mix. Delicous!!
For the last several weeks, we (my german lady friends) and I have been for coffee, conversation, and culture—well, mostly just to talk in English as both desire to improve their English communication skills–and had asked me to meet with them more often for practice–always a fun way to learn and I really enjoy spending more time with my ladies.
Thus, every week we meet…and the laugther follows. Last week, the topic of favorite foods and cusine from our own cultures incorporated itself into the evening, as we ate (naturally, what is better than food with friends?)
The ladies, being both German, eat German breakfast–but have never tasted the delights of an American or ‘farmers’ breakfast so this week, as planned, they drove over for our weekly conversation and I made ‘brinner’ (breakfast for dinner)–a favorite of mine.
The menu included:
An Assortment of Pancakes-cinnamon raisin syrup–Apple Walnut compote
An assort of eggs cooked in a variety of ways
A Farmers omellete (large), topped with melted cheese
and Bacon (what breakfast is complete without bacon?)
I admit it, i am guilty of coffee adventures and food sampling and i can not help myself!! While all the photography is mine, none of the wonderful food or concotions contained in this post are of my creation. But, wow, are they delicous!! Sampled from all over the region, coffee and snack adventures are delightful!!!
15 kilometers in one day makes a very happy woman, and very tired feet!!!
The adventure began with a tram ride to the North, and disembarking in Raumümzach–which only has one stop for the village (which also boasts a lovely place called ‘Hotel Waterfall’).
I packed my lunch, grabbed my rucksack and off I went exploring, the visual experience was stunning this autumn season but nothing compared to the scent filled fresh air that prevailed itself upon my senses.
I ate my brown bag lunch, overlooking the Murg River near Erbersbronn and a house in the country had chickens as i heard the rooster crow in midday.
Walking leisurely through the hills and valleys (both minor) of the area provided an over abundant wealth of beauty and excitement and a day filled with much peach, quiet and joy.
