What To Do for Valentines
This weekend we celebrate Valentines' day and you may be clueless about what to do. Here are some ideas of what you can possibly get up to.
A hearty meal
Stir fries are one of my favourite dishes. They are versatile and can be done in so many different ways depending on your ingredients, likes and dislikes. I reckon, if you are having a stay at home Valentine's day, try this hearty meal.
Cook the noodles or spaghetti (optional) in a saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until just tender. Drain well and let it sit on a tray to cool, so that it does not get sticky.
Heat half the oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat until smoking. Add the chicken cubes/strips and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Do not forget to add salt and pepper to the chicken to taste.
An option is to remove the chicken and set it aside or cook your vegetables separately, these will include your choice of veges. I love to use green peas, cabbage, green and red pepper and of course my carrots all diced into desired strips.
Once the veggies are cooked, add some onion and garlic into the chicken, until and add the rest of your veges. Then add the cooked noodles. Stir to combine and add your sauces I prefer soy sauce and a bit of curry. Toss until well combined and let it simmer until well mixed and cooked.
Dish up your meal, and dinner is served. You can garnish it and serve with salads or add some fried sesame seeds.
Love is in the air everybody, so take time to celebrate it. If you are married or have a partner or meeting someone for the very first time remember share the love.
Many shops have their items on a valentine's special, remember spoiling yourself does not mean breaking the bank so go ahead and take advantage of the sales this weekend and do not forget to include the special loved one/s.
