Easy Chicken Chow Fun

Yummy Chicken Chow Fun is not something we have often, but when we do....my tummy is very happy.  Well, until the carb coma hits me! :)
We go at least once every other month to our local China Town Markets.  We usually start the day with fresh Dim Sum and end it with various stops for pastries, veggies and special Asian food extras that we can't find at our local grocery store.  One of those items is the chow fun noodles made fresh every single day. 
This is what you need.......
Chow Fun rice noodles
1-2 chicken breast ~ Sliced thinly
About 3 Tbsp of Dark soy sauce or Amino Acids
2 tsp of both Sesame oil and Olive oil
2 tsp rice wine
Chinese broccoli for a side
2 garlic cloves minced
3-4 scallions, chopped in chunks 
3 cups bean sprouts
Pepper to taste
Hot chile oil or Siracha (optional)
First I put the thinly sliced chicken in a bowl with the marinate.  To make the marinate just mix sesame oil, rice wine, garlic and some of the dark soy sauce or aminos. I usually just let it sit for 30 minutes or so
Once that is finished marinating I toss the chicken with the rest of the oil in my heated wok.  I only cook it for a few minutes being careful not to overcook.  Once cooked then I toss in the noodles, scallions and bean sprouts. 
The Chinese Broccoli is super easy to make.  Just trim the stem and I usually slice it in half.  Sauté in garlic, salt and pepper in olive or avocado oil.  I like them to have a little crunch still and bright color.  I hope this helps, I'm not very good about recipes....writing or using them.  Enjoy!!!!


Wulf the Saxon Audio Drama~REVIEW

I know I have said this before, but I slept during most of my History classes growing up or hanging out in the hallway till I was dragged in.  Fast forward to the present day and I can't learn fast enough!  I want to learn everything I can regarding History and while doing this I am opening the door for my children to want to do the same.  And they have been enjoying the brand New audio drama from Heirloom Audio Productions called, Wulf the Saxon.  Like other productions of theirs, these audio dramas are based off the writings from the brilliant G.A. Henty.


Spread Some Love Your Way

Guys....I had so many cute Valentine ideas to do with the kids this year. Kaden is really into celebrations more then normal and I kind of wanted to take advantage of it. :)  But, honestly between the hourly essential oil rub downs, mounds of tissues accumulating around me like a Dr Seuss situation I can hardly give it another thought. If we do it, we do it and there is no shame or finger pointing. I’m the biggest finger pointer at myself... it’s in my DNA. But, days like today look so different then they would have 4 years ago. I have learned to just let go and practice self love. So, in this moment if you are struggling with sickness like me, finances, obstacles or just a never ending to do lists... just let go, love yourself where you are and accept the present situation for what it is, not what it’s not or what it should be.  We have to Love Ourselves Mamas!!!!


Solar Energy

Do you know that you can charge your crystals in the sun on a cool day.  I usually charge and clear them in the moonlight, but today was so super beautiful that I took advantage of the sunlight.  I started using crystals about 2 years ago during meditation and never looked back.  My kiddos and I have a deep obsession with gems, crystals and rocks... always have.  We are extremely lucky up here in Northern California to have what seems to be an endless supply in our rivers and mountains.  Lucky us! ;)
