Dinner. I get tired of thinking about it. If it were just me in the home, I’d probably eat dessert for dinner. But, I have four other people to consider. Four people with vastly different tastes. Four people who will tell me exactly how they feel before and after each meal. It’s impossible to satisfy everyone. I refuse to cook separate meals. We either eat what I cook or we go hungry. That’s it.
Tonight I decided to do the unthinkable. Make every one happy. It’s funny that chicken stir fry would be the meal to unite us, but it was. My son was happy because there were no tomatoes. My oldest daughter was happy because pasta was involved. My youngest was happy because of the peanut butter sauce. My husband was happy because it was chicken. And finally I was happy because I could add Sriracha! I did it! Household harmony!
I love making stir fry because it’s so easy and can be made with any ingredients you happen to have at home. Don’t have chicken? Use shrimp, pork or tofu! Change out the broccoli for green beans or snow peas. If you don’t like peanut butter or have allergies, you could omit it and add cornstarch to thicken up the sauce. This recipe will fit your needs. My need was to have a dinner free of complaints. My needs have been met!
