Popcorn Movie Night

What are your special family traditions? We love the occasional “popcorn movie night”! Our boy is thrilled because we reserve popcorn and movie night for this rare event. Novelty is key for all of us! ? ? 
So, what do you keep special to do with your loved ones?

{My Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken}

When I was preparing to make the Better-Than-Takeout Chicken Fried Rice recipe I found on Pinterest, it recommended this Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken Recipe. Following the recommendation, I cooked the teriyaki chicken in my Crock Pot and added the chicken to my fried rice that I stir fried separately in my new wok. The result was a delicious home-cooked meal–when all I thought I wanted was takeout!

{My Crock Pot Kung POW! Chicken}

Yes, I know it’s supposed to be Kung Pao Chicken, I wanted to play up the fact that this dish is a spicy little number! Indeed, I put enough “Pain is Good” Sriracha Pepper Sauce in this to give one a real “POW!” in the kisser! I could really ratchet it up as high on the heat scale as I wanted to go, since Kung Pao Chicken doesn’t suit my hubby’s taste buds and my tiny tot is a bit small for spicy food! In this post I show a few ways I proudly modified the inspiration recipe. I am not joking when I say I enjoyed this so much ALL WEEK, since it made plenty of servings for one person to enjoy! And if you stir in fresh peanuts and add fresh-sliced green onions each time you serve the leftovers and it tastes just like night one!
