Recipe: Quick Chicken Dish and T's GREAT NEWS!

The Holidays are here and we're just busy, busy, busy.  All the people at work wanted me to cook some more of those Crab-stuffed mushrooms for our potluck lunch on Christmas eve .

What to do with all the mushroom stems? Garbage disposal? Heck no, make a dish!

Get out the wok and heat some olive oil at a low temperature so you can saute the chopped mushroom stems, 1 large sweet onion and 1 green pepper ( you can use any kind. I actually prefer the reds but they are more expensive and I didn't have one on hand).

 I started out to cook just these to be used in fajitas. But no, the cooking smells and the need for some lunches got me to experiment and see what I could come up with.

 I chopped 6 ounces of precooked chicken breast into just under an inch-sized chunks, added 2 tablespoons of a low sugar hoisin sauce (KaMe brand=2 Tbsp=10g of sugar and 50 calories for 3 servings of the meal) and finally threw in approximately 40 peanuts. Mixed all together in the wok, this made 3 very good, tasty lunches. So as you can see, it doesn't have to be complicated or a lot of work to come up with something tasty.

Good news from the Doctor!  I am getting off insulin and going to a pill. No more shots!!

 They didn't hurt 99% of the time, but every once in a while you can hit something not quite right. Ouch!!!! This was proof that eating properly does work.

 If i don't get a chance to post again, To everybody: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
