Last week we tried a couple of new things and loved them!!
First up, Thai peanut chicken and coconut lime rice. The rice recipe was on the bag of rice and I had wanted to try it for a while. I made a couple of changes. First off, I didn't have fresh ginger root, so I used about one teaspoon ground ginger. I also used the honey roasted peanuts I had on hand rather than buying the dry-roasted peanuts. I'll post the recipe for the rice below. This was sooo good. Both hubby and I cold have eaten just the rice!!
We also tried the pretzel dogs!! This one was a winner for sure---considering everyone in the family ate it!! They were a little time consuming, but not too bad. I'll make them again, for sure!!
