But hubby wanted to eat real food and he had his eye on the huge jar of cashews we'd bought at Costco.
He decided he wanted pork with peppers and cashews.
That worked for me (as you'll see below).
The recipe is easy. I had an assortment of colorful little peppers. I stir fried them, stir fried the pork separately, mixed in the sauce and scallions. Served over rice. Sprinkled liberally with cashews! The catch here is the sauce. Ssssh. Don't tell anyone. It's really just pork gravy thinned out with a dash of soy sauce added in.
But, if you recall, I couldn't eat anything that chunky. I had gotten to the point that I could eat something more than gruel, so I settled on pastina. Remember that cute little star pasta from when the kids were babies?
First I mixed my trusty honey mustard in water and shredded in the cooked pork.
|Simmer until very soft.|
|Serve over pastina!|
So yesterday, hubby was eyeing those cashews again. This time we went for chicken with snow peas and cashews.
So easy. Which was good since I'm in deadline mode.
Oh, and my other cheat - I was tired of buying scallions for him and only using half. So I decided to try these. He never noticed the difference!
