Since it is still hot, and we have not received any rain, allergy season has hit us all hard. I was the one in the family who never had any allergy symptoms until this past year. And, now, I am sniffling and sneezing right along with everyone else.
If you have allergies, you know how it can just wipe you out. Well, I had a cold last week, followed by more allergies this week, so I have been taking it easy. Summer loves taking it easy days because that means that we stay in our pajamas, play games, and watch movies while the boys are at school. Yes, I am admitting that we have stayed in our pajamas for the past two days. And, you know what? It has been great. Sometimes slowing down and taking it easy is just what the doctor ordered.
So, we have been playing a lot of games – Bingo, Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land, Hi-Ho Cherry-O, and Operation. My girl loves to play games.
Needless to say, my creative juices were zapped today, too, so I decided to post a family favorite recipe – Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry. Honestly, besides the fact that it is truly delicious, one of the things that I love about this recipe is that you can do whatever you want to with it. You can use beef or shrimp instead of chicken, add what vegetables you prefer, and even switch out the broth to beef or vegetable broth. Just have fun with it, and make it your own.
I know that there will be busy days and weeks ahead, so I am really soaking up this week.
