MY VERY FIRST SUGAR DOLL AWARD ALONWITH A YUMMY HONEY GINGER CHICKEN STIR FRY.



MY FIRST EVER  AWARD IS PRESENTED TO ME BY A BEAUTIFUL PERSON,CHAYA ,WRITE OF THE LOVELY BLOG,SWEET & SAVOURY SAYS IT ALL!!!!!
oH MY very first award and am so so excited and thrilled-actually got an award....OH Chaya,she a sweet heart and i love her blog and before rambling on-THANX A TON A GRATEFUL HEARTFUL POOHY HUUGGY TO YA!!!And congrats on ur award and thanx a ton for passing it on to me!!!!
You are so sweet and made d days of us so many and also gave us the oppurtinity to makes another 10 lovely bloggers days.
Another wonderfull pointer is the lovely little note she wrote about each blogger-so so sweet and cute!!!
And i'm going to do exactly the same!!!
If someone can tell me where i can find a domestic Godess award i would love to give that to CHAYA@SWEET AND SAVOURY SAYS IT ALL-coz she truly is ones-she not only bakes and cooks a lot but manages so well to put up her delicious posts for us all to share and cooks gluten free and healthy too...all thru a busy schedule and has a class whom she bakes cookies for(oh i always imagine 'em smiling at the cookies she brings)and she gives the ones no remembers too-so muc to learn!
I would have loved to put up this post earlier but didn coz i wanted to put it by alonwith a cook along from something from Chaya's post-wanted to make it a little special and though there is a lot lot(almost evrything really),i have bookmarked from her blog,she jus posted this one and there were exactly fillets to be cooked up for lunch today so i thought this would be perfect and yummy...


And it reAlly was....fantastic finger licking good-cant wait to try a few more of ur recipes Chaya.



Honey Ginger Chicken with Peppers (stir-fry)
ADAPTED FROM CHAYA'S BLOG

Ingredients:
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Canola oil(i used olive oil)
1 pound chicken cutlets, sliced into a quarter inch strips
1/2 teaspoon ginger-fresh,finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder(used fresh garlic here)
1 red pepper, sliced thinly(green pepper coz we didn have red pepper)
cooked rice (basmati rice)



NOTES-
The chicken was already defrosted and i had around 3 hours before we had this so what i did was take a little bit of evrything from the ingredients and marinated the chicken in it and there it sat in the fridge till it was time to stir fry it
this one's really quick to put together and all u need is to keep the peppers cut and garlic & ginger minced.

METHOD
In a small bowl, stir together honey, vinegar and soy sauce.
Heat a large skillet and add one tablespoon olive oil.
Add chicken and stir until opaque but not cooked through. (3 minutes)
Transfer to a plate. Put aside.
Add 1 tablespoon oil and ginger and garlic. Stir for thirty seconds.
Add peppers and stir for two minutes.
Add soy mixture and bring to a boil.
Return chicken to skillet and toss until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked thoroughly. (3 minutes)


I served over a garlic onion rice with almonds & rasins...

This is really delicious-thanx for the rcipe Chaya...its really good...

Now what u do is,save the picture of the award and copy to ur post,write about 10 things about urself-oh we all wanna know the wonderfull u better and pass on the award to 10 wonderfull bloggers
And to begin with here are 10 sugar doll facts about me at random..
u may know a few of 'em if u read my journey of love and more about me in the right hand columns.SO here goes...

1)Im a total romantic and fall head over heels or truly madly deeply in love as u say ,every single day, with love ,life ,food,music and my family and to sum that up my days beginsand end with love, zest, zing and passion:) . Oh the things that make my world go round and gourmet does too...
And yes i am a total candy pink floss romantique,round the clock ,i am so in love all the time & i think my heart love me for that-everythings as the good side of it is!!!

2)I love love love ballroom music(alongwith with slow & all the my fav movie tracks et all) as in all the waltzing,tangos and the like so yeah that includes dancing too...

3)I love winnie the pooh and have a little of his parenphalia too which i love love love collecting.

4)My christmasy mood begins in november ans ends somewhere in feb when the valentines mood begins so dont be suprised to continue seeing all the reds in my pics.

5)The year has seen me at the recieving end of goodies galore-my 1st 160gb ipod,my first computer ever -this cute laptop, and now a camera.And yeah a hamilton beach is already brought in buts its in another state,so will have to wait.

6)I love and am so enjoying bogging though i just signed in outa curiosity in june 09 but actually began blogging in mid september when my family gifted me this laptop and i so ove the wonderful pals like u that am meeting here.

7)My journey of being a foodie began before i walked(or rather ran) into my teens and have written a bit on that in my right column in 'the journey of love'.

8)I live in a state where even to buy basic sprinkles i have to research,leave alone all those cute stuff at kaf and in my wishlist.

9)I have this inbron quality of writing really really long statements and thats why this list is sooooooo lonnnnnnnnnnnngggg.

10)And most importantly i love Jesus,and He's my reason to say yes to love...yes to life and having me enjoy life in any given situation and loving every moment of my joyous ,bubbling with laughter from within days of my life...

I REALLY wanted to get this up in dec2009 ,on the day i got the award but couldn the main reason being i wanted to cook up something from Chaya's blog and secondly my laptops being truly a bad bad girl the last few days coz of which i am behind posting-for the last 2days of dec, i have cut down on so muc sleep to get my posts up coz it not only hangs every so often but also refuses to upload pics-what a combination ....
But now have just downloaded i8(blogger doesnt work well on the opers browser i love to use-the blogger comments boxes simply refuse to open up)and have discovered i can load pics directly thru picasa so hopefully things will be so much smoother.
Also linking this post to OUR KRAZY KITCHENS to Chaya's post who hosts evry monday...
And wishing u all a fantastically great happy new year dearies...
love u all....
