Not Just Yet . . .

I was sure I would be on my way with working on the ring after church. Last night I decided to fire up the torch to do a couple of silver elements to be soldered on the ring. I turned on the propane tank and what did I feel and smell? A swishing of gas blew across my hand then the smell of propane filled the air! I disconnected the propane, put it in the car to do a refill swap which as I found out is not available at Tractor Supply. Our little town now boasts of a Home Depot but it was back to where I came from and decided to forget until later. I did call Home Depot and they do carry propane refills. Since I discipline myself to combine errands when leaving the house, I cannot go tomorrow, Monday, but have three specific errands on Tuesday. So Tuesday is the day to begin work on the ring, I hope.

In the interim, here's a recipe for Stir Fry Chicken, or any meat in the leftover category, or fresh category for that matter. Nothing is measured; if it it looks like the right quantity, that's it. If it isn't, I try to readjust the next time it's on the menu.

Chicken Stir Fry
Two-three cloves garlic, minced
Sliced onions, we prefer purple
Sliced carrots
Sliced green peppers
Chicken (it can be leftovers or raw -- sirloin or flank steak, pork loin)
Broccoli florets
Sliced zucchini
Sliced mushrooms
Chopped fresh tomato(s)

Sea salt and pepper to taste
Mrs. Dash
Garlic powder if garlic cloves are not on hand
Soy sauce, low sodium if possible


Saute garlic and onions in olive oil, add meat, then each of the above ingredients as listed to allow enough cooking time for each vegetable. It doesn't take much time for mushrooms or the tomatoes so they are always added last. Also, I start seasoning after the meat is added.

Serve over cooked rice, white or brown.

Until next time, God bless you.
