compliments of Aunt Kris given to me by Aunt Kim

2 lbs. chicken breasts or tenderloins
1 Tbsp. chopped onion
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup water
1 Tbsp. chicken boullion
1-2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. coriander
1 can coconut milk
1 Tbsp. hot chili oil
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup peanuts coarsely chopped
cilantro (just for garnish)

In a deep skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook 1-2 minutes. Add chicken, brown lightly on both sides. Then add water, boullion, soy sauce, cumin, coriander, coconut milk, and hot chili oil. Simmer uncovered until chicken is fully cooked and sauce reduces. Add peanut butter, and heat through. Garnish with peanuts and cilantro and serve with steamed rice. ENJOY!

Feel free to copy and paste so you can have this recipe for yourself. I hope anyone who tries this enjoys it as much as I did. It was delicious. To my dear friends Sunny and Becky...I miss our cook group. If any of you have good recipes send them my way, it seems like I have slim pickins these days.

A few more pics from this morning...

The Maile and Scoresby families teaming up for some Easter Fun!

Egg Hunting Fun

We had a lot of fun this morning. A pretty low key easter egg hunt, just my style! Cici was perfectly content cruising around with her one egg, while Max and his friends Emme and Grace had a great time egg hunting! Some of my pics didn't turn out , but the kids were so cute! The fun has just begun...we plan on dying eggs later this afternoon.

peace of mind

So, I just have to say that the best peace of mind you can have while being pregnant is hearing that healthy heartbeat! I love that sound. Especially right now, I am 16 weeks so the baby isn't totally moving all the time yet, but I am also feeling much better. So really the only peace of mind I have right now is to hear that little heart beat, everything sounded good today. I am getting excited to find out what it is in 4 weeks! Babies really are such little heaven sent miracles.
