Time for Teriyaki . . .
With some fresh cut broccoli, and sugar snap peas, I thought it would be a perfect time to make a chicken stir fry (over organic brown rice). I whipped up a batch of homemade teriyaki sauce for it. And there really is organic soy sauce. Check for it in the organic section of your store, or near the regular soy sauce. Not all stores carry it.
Also, I use one brand (Wholesome Sweeteners) of light corn syrup that does not contain high fructose corn syrup. It is organic and non-gmo verified. I do have to order it online from a healthy living store. Our stores here do not carry it.
Here is the recipe link if you are interested: Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
As for the sauce, a little goes a long way for flavor. If you make it, use a little, taste, and then add if necessary. It's always a winner dinner in our home. Everyone loves it.
I just made the deadline for a recent article. I felt horrible I turned it in directly on the deadline date. I never do that. I am always prepared and on top of things. I am pretty sure I won't be blogging every day in July. Sorry guys, but I think I'll be in the garden and kitchen more too.
Last night I sweltered it out, and picked more berries. My canning days are about to start real soon.
In case you are wondering, "stalker" guy did pay us a visit again yesterday. This time it was around 3pm, and with his truck, driving real slow and almost stopping at the north property markers. He then continued past the entire property very slowly. He turned around down the road and passed by again, then back to his house. It's as if we cannot leave our home empty. Ever.
Document, film, photograph......something must have been done recently too. Last Sunday we watched a truck and trailer haul his bulldozer out and away, with him following. Hmm. The Hubs will make some calls and see if anything is or was being done about this.
Well, I'm heading back out to the garden today. First a chicken is going in the roasting pan. The Hubs went golfing with his co-workers. They do this once a year, and he's never gone until this year. He's never golfed either. I would have loved to tag along an film it, ha ha! I'm sure I'll hear how it went later this afternoon.
