I'm happy did I say that, yes I'm a very happy and blessed girl. It feels so good to have some one to talk to and hear them reply, some one to cuddle up with and have descent conversations and laughs echoing in the house. Much better than talking to animals. They are also settled and happy since their dad is back.
Prior to Wayne's trip, his hard work was acknowledged and it got nods from his bosses. I'm so proud of him. We didn't get the chance to celebrate so I decided I would make Sunday dinner special.
I tried out a recipe I have used before for sweet and sour pork.
I altered some bits here and there to suit us.
Pork strips- I we buy the pork steak and cut them into strips about 3 inches by 1inch
3 carrots not so chunkily sliced.
One big onion cut into thin slices
1 tomato or tomato puree
1.4 teaspoon Crushed ginger
4 table spoons of Cooking oil
Green, red and yellow pepper cut into thin slices
2 table spoons Soy sauce
1/4 cup of vinegar
1 can of pineapple
2 table spoons of Corn starch
1/4 cup of Brown sugar
2 table spoons of teriyaki sauce
Add pork strips to pan and saute in hot oil over medium heat until light brown. I did add teriyaki sauce to brown the pieces of pork
|slices of pork 3 inches by 1/2 i nch|
Add strips of pepper to the meat
Combine 2 table spoons of corn starch to 2 tables spoons of water stir till smooth and add to pork mixture stirring constantly until mixture is thick.
Add pineapple chuncks and let the pork simmer for 10 mins while striing constantly.
Then serve sweet and sour pork over white rice.
Happy week everyone.
