This is Why I am Temporarily Disappointed in Publix

As you may know I always RAVE about how AWESOME Publix is. However I was slightly disappointed when I found this:


This my dear friends is from a bag of Publix brand whole wheat bread. Where is the rest of the bread you might ask? Well, I don’t know, quite frankly. All I know is that they should totally give me like 50% back since half my bread wasn’t even in the bag. How is ANYONE supposed to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on this? Everyone knows that all of the Jelly is just going to fall right out of those MASSIVE holes in the bread. I’m disappointed Publix. Disappointed.

Chicken Chow Mein

Last night we had Chicken Chow Mein for dinner. It wasn’t half bad, but it did lack a touch in flavor.  It wasn’t too compicated to prepare. I used chow mein noodles, if you don’t have those available to you then you can substitute thin spaghetti.  Since I was able to find Chow Mein noodles at my local Wal-Mart, which generally has NOTHING, you shouldn’t have any problem at your local grocery store. If you do have difficulties,  then you can always go to Publix. They have EVERYTHING!  The recipe is as follows:

6 oz chow mein (or thin spaghetti)

2/3 c low-sodium chicken broth

2 tbsp dry sherry

2 tsp cornstarch

1/2 tsp salt

3 tsp canola oil

1 lb skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into thin strips

1 onion, chopped

1 tbsp minced peeled fresh ginger

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1 celery stalk, chopped

1. Cook the chow mein noodles or spaghetti according to package directions; drain.

2. Combine the broth, sherry, cornstach, and salt in a small bowl; set aside.

3. Heat a nonstick wok or a large, deep skillet over high heat until a drop of water sizzles. Swirl in 2 tsps of the oil., then add the chicken. Stir-fry until just cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to plate.

4. Swirl the remaining 1 tsp oil into the wok, then add the onon, ginger, and garlic. Stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the bell pepper and celery; stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken and broth mixture. Cook, stirring, constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens, about 2 minutes. Serve over the cooked noodles.
