Crazy snowy and windy day. I didn’t feel up to braving the weather outside — 21 °F with the 38 mph winds causing it to appear to be snowing sideways. I rummaged in the kitchen to see what I had on hand to fix for lunch. I took leftover spaghetti, ham, minced garlic, green onions, soy sauce, […]
I really love Serrano peppers, basil and chicken combo. Today I included snow peas and it added just the nice amount of crunch. I also squirted some Sriracha sauce because you know, it wouldn’t be spicy enough with just two Serranos.
