Chicken Stir-fry


I probably could have posted this a week ago, but I have become quite lazy.  I have found that after multi-tasking all day, when I finally sit down for some mindless television, that’s all I want to do.  Post a blog?  No way.  Do some sit-ups?  Forget it!

So here it is, finally!
