Chicken Lettuce Wraps :)

Looking for something a little bit different? Since the start of the new year, we’ve been talking more about the food we eat as a family and just how many carbs we eat in a day. Just last week the new Canada food guide was released with healthy updates and suggestions.

So in a move to try out some different types of food, I’ve been looking for some new recipes. It turns out Facebook is quite helpful for sharing yummy new recipes and it wasn’t long ago that I came across Averie Cooks’ Copycat Recipe for P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

Fast forward to a Sunday afternoon wonder about what to make for supper (or do you say dinner)? And I remembered the lettuce wrap recipe. So off I went to the local Co-oP grocery store to pick up what we needed. The recipe was easy to follow and it turned out quite good. Now I’m not sure how our version compares to the original restaurant version, but they were very tasty. Husband approved and almost daughter approved…. neither one really liked the water chestnuts and one wasn’t really in favour of wrapping her food in a leaf of lettuce. LOL.

Here’s the link to Averie Cooks’ online recipe – P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps {Copycat Recipe}.

My only change was to use 1 tsp of Asian Chili Garlic Sauce instead of 1tbsp – that was spicy enough for me 🙂 I also served this with Basmati rice because my daughter likes the option and it helped turn down the heat a bit for me:) (yes I’m not a fan of spicy food).

If you are like me and want to see the recipe use this link. Straight to the recipe.

Hope you enjoy 🙂

Homemade Sweet Potato Fries

Recently, I had lunch at “The Spot” a local restaurant that served up a delicious steak melt with a side of sweet potato fries.  So what do you do on a Saturday night when you feel like sweet potato fries?  Attempt to make them of course 🙂  So I asked my Google home how to make sweet potato fries and the Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries recipe was the top suggestion.  You can check out the link below.

All you need is one sweet potato and a little bit of time.  You have a variety of spice options.  We chose to follow the olive oil and cornstarch suggestion and topped that off with a bit of paprika, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper.

Cookie + Kate has a tasty Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fry recipe.
