Sunday Stir Fry and Soft Serve

Today has been a glooorious day. Sundays are the only day that I get to sleep in, so I REALLY took advantage today. I didn't get out of bed until 11:15. Ridiculous? Maybe. Amazing? Most certainly. I can't even tell you the last time I was in bed that late. I woke up like 5 times before that, but the fact that I didn't have to get out of bed was amazing! Usually on a week day I'm done with all of my morning clients by then, or close to it. Crazy town.
I came home from church and headed straight over to my mom and dad's for a DELICIOUS dinner. Dinner tastes so good when someone else makes it for you. My mom and dad made us some chicken and vegetable stir fry with some fresh fruit and fruit dip. It tasted HEAVENLY. Thanks M&D.
Mom's Stir Fry
Spray heated pan with pam and add a bit of olive oil. Add whatever vegetables you like; broccoli, zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, snow peas, bell peppers, yellow squash, etc. Whatever you like! Cook them through.
Add cooked chicken. My dad grilled up some yummy chicken with a little salt and pepper. We cut that up and threw that in with the veggies. After that is heated through add the stir fry sauce.
1/3 cup karo syrup
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 TBS corn starch
Serve over brown rice.

You can cook the chicken first in the pan with a little bit of lemon juice, salt and pepper if you don't want to grill it. This recipe is so tasty and a great way get in a lot of veggies.

I have had so many people tell me that I need to try making banana soft serve from frozen bananas, that I FINALLY decided to try it. I sliced up some frozen ripe bananas this morning, and threw them in the freezer. (I separated them into portions because I'm a freak like that.) I just made this from one banana.
 Tonight I put the frozen bananas into my mini food processor.
 Next, i just whipped them up, until they made a creamy consistency.
 And that is all she wrote. I seriously loved it! It was such an easy treat, and one small banana only has 90 calories!  
I saw on the Today show they added peanut butter to a batch, and mini chocolate chips to another. Both seemed like fabulous additions to me. I really loved the stuff. Thanks everyone who has been trying to get me to make this for months. WORTH IT. You should totally try it! One day I plan on having a frozen yogurt machine in my house, but until then this will have to suffice.

What is the latest you have ever slept in? I think this may be my topper. I always wake up like 5 times during the night, so does that even count? Have you ever tried this banana soft serve? If you haven't get on it! I'd love to hear your variations. I promise I'll cool it on the banana posts...maybe.

Your banana soft serve looks WAY better than mine did the time I made it. I think my banana was a little overripe :-/ I will definitely have to try this again, maybe add some PB (I love the Today Show hehe).

I can't remember the last time I was in bed past 10 am. I usually get too hungry and "have" to get up to eat breakfast.

I will have a frozen yogurt machine in my house too (or maybe just an ice cream maker that I can make frozen yogurt in...someday :-)

Yum to all of it! I need mom to come home so she can make me some stir fry! Looks like you are all having fun! Did it warm up?

Banana soft serve is AMAZING! I recently tried adding some almond milk, some spirutien banana protien powder and a couple of ice cubs and it is for sure a new addiction, thankfully, a healthy one :)

Erin@gosupermamago said...

I'm jealous of your sleeping in! Ever since kids, I CANNOT sleep in, even if they are aren't there.(which is rare)

That banana softserve looks delish--I need to try it asap! Thanks for the suggestion!

I definitely slept in this Sunday. It was glorious. I rarely do this and it was JUST what the doctor ordered! Frozen banana soft serve is delicious. My kids love it!

I slept in until 10 yesterday. Crazysauce for me. The only bad part was I couldn't fall asleep last night. :(

Your dinner looks delicious and so does the Bannana soft serve. I am totally going to have to try that.

Have a great week!

I consider sleeping in unti 9 heavenly and if I wake up before 8 I usually crash in the afternoon. I am most definitely not an early morning person. I thought your parents lived in Arizona (does that just raise my blog stalking creepiness to a whole new level?).

I used to make banana soft serve all the time last year. Now the bananas are all gone before I can freeze them for it lol. It's insane delicious. I've definitely slept in til 2 or 3 recently-oops.

Dmarie said...

love this idea! as for sleeping in, if I stay in bed too long, my back hurts. Since my back rarely hurts, I take that as a sign that it's time to get up!
