Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Stir-Fry Shrimp with Soba Noodles

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Still not sure how much snow we are going to end up with. Hello Spring! Around 11:00 a Social Worker came over for a couple of hours to discuss options on where we can place Dad for his final days. We did everything we could to keep him home with us but the Dementia is starting to take over. He’s been seeing things and people that are not there. He screams a lot and refuses to do what we ask of him to do to help himself. We are so sad but it’s going to be for the best. For Dinner tonight Leftover Stir-Fry Shrimp with Soba Noodles. It’s been a very stressful day so I’m glad I had Leftovers to reheat. I’ve left the original post from yesterday, for ingredients and directions, below. Enjoy all!

 

To make this dish I’ll be using; a package of KAME Soba Stir-Fry Noodles, a bag of Meijer Frozen Large Raw Shrimp, a can of Reese Sliced waterChestnuts, La Choy Beans Sprouts, a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, a can of Kroger Whole Carrots, 1 tsp minced Garlic, 1 tsp sugar (Splenda Sugar), McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce, and La Choy Rice Noodles (for topping and optional).

 

 

 

To prepare it, I started by preparing the Baby Carrots. I boiled them in a small sauce pan, boiling them until they were not quite fork tender. I parboiled them because Carrots take a bit to cook and by boiling them first they will get done in the wok with the other ingredients. As the Carrots were boiling I also prepared the Shrimp. In a bowl mix the shrimp with 1 tsp Splenda Sugar and a dash of McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley . Marinate for 15 minutes. Next cooked them in a bit of butter just until pink. Remove Shrimp from the skillet and set aside along with Baby Carrots.

 

 

In a separate skillet I prepared the Soba Noodles. Using a medium size skillet, I added 1/2 Tbsp. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heated on medium high. I added the Noodles and the Soy Sauce, stirred and cooked for 2 minutes. Removed from the heat and set aside.

 

 

 

 

 

Using the same skillet as the Shrimp was cooked I added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (cooking on medium high) along with the Butter, Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts and 1 tsp minced Garlic. Then seasoned them with the Sea Salt and the Peppercorn Medley. Cooked it 2 minutes and then added 2 tablespoons of water and the cooked Carrots, Shrimp, and Noodles. Continued to cook everything for an additional 1 minute, stirring it often. Then I added the skillet of Soba Noodles on top of everything, stirring till mixed. Remove from heat and serve! Love this dish, everything spot on! The Noodles, Shrimp, Vegetables, along with the seasoning and Soy Sauce combine to make one delicious dish. Really love the KA*ME Udon Stir Fry Noodles, they taste so fresh! For Dessert/Snack tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

Chill the Chicken…

When using Chicken for Stir-Fry – To make cutting chicken into thin strips easier, place chicken in the freezer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour to firm it up or if the chicken was frozen, cut it into the thin strips before it is completely thawed.

Stir-Fry tonight………..

 

When stir-frying mixtures of vegetables, place each vegetable in the pan separately to maintain the heat. Add the slowest cooking first and the fastest cooking last.

Stir-Fry cuts…..

 

For even cooking, cut all the ingredients the same size. Because stir-fry is a quick a cooking method the whole time while you stir-frying you have to use the highest heat to quickly cook the food. So it’s important to keep the food at an equal size. For example, if you stir-fry pork or chicken with vegetables, try to cut them in equal size, like julienned, slice or cubes.

Tonight’s Menu: Chicken Stir -Fry w/ Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of Eggo Waffles (Low Fat Nutrigrain) and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I had ordered a Rotisserie Chicken from Kroger yesterday and after Lunch I went to pick up. Using as part of my Dinner tonight. Had a thunderstorm come through early this morning and then partly cloudy and 92 degrees out, and VERY humid. Don’t like this humidity at all. I seen the Wild Turkey again this morning in the back yard, second time I’ve seen them recently. We have the Turrkey, a couple of Deer, and assorted other critters running around. We also have somehow been adopted by a large yellow cat that now stays around the house outside. He sleeps a lot and that’s about it. For Dinner tonight its Chicken Stir -Fry w/ Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms.

 

 

To make the Stir – Fry I’ll need; 1 Whole Rotisserie Chicken (Kroger Deli), 1 package Hakubaku Organic Japanese Wheat Noodles, 1 can Whole Baby Carrots (drained), 1 small can Del Monte Cut Green Beans (drained), Sliced Water Chestnuts (drained), 1 can of Bean Sprouts (drained), 1 can Stir-Fry Mushrooms (drained), Chow Mein Noodles, Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

I went to Kroger earlier today and picked up a Whole Rotisserie Chicken. Pulled all the meat and this was my Chicken for the Stir-Fry. Next I grabbed a large nonstick skillet and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated the pan on medium heat. When heated I added my Pulled Chicken, Carrots, Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms. Stirred until mixed then added the Kikkoman Soy Sauce, you add this according to your taste. Stirred and heated everything until heated through. Removed it from the heat and covered it.

 

 

Next I boiled my Udon Noodles. I used a large pot and filled it 1/2 way with water. Heated the water to boiling and added my Noodles. Stirring, and cooked for 4 minutes. Drained them and added them to the Stir – Fry Skillet. Stirred until mixed and served! This hit the spot for Dinner! Topped a bowl of the Sir – Fry with some Chow Mein Noodles. Had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert/Snack tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Trop A Rocka Snapple.

 

 

 

 

 

Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce
Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce is brewed exactly the same way as all-purpose Kikkoman Soy Sauce. However, after the fermentation process is completed, approximately 40% of the salt is removed. Although there is less sodium in Less Sodium Soy Sauce, all the flavor and quality characteristics remain because it is aged before extracting the salt. However, to maintain this full flavor, we recommend using it during the latter stage of cooking in braising sauces, soups and stews, vegetables or stir-frys.

Ingredients
WATER, WHEAT, SOYBEANS, SALT, LACTIC ACID, SODIUM BENZOATE; LESS THAN 1/10 OF 1% AS A PRESERVATIVE.
